Wow, Ed, she's beautiful! I can see a lot of careful attention went into this -- the lighting is excellent, the patterned hat, the upturned chin, the positioning of her eyes to the very spot where our eyes go first. Very well realized and excellent choice of black and white to keep the focus on your subject.

Beautiful [email protected] shot with so nice tones...
I have always been a great admirer of portraits and i try and practice that myself as much as i can ...
Comming back to this portrait of Maria - in one word it's awsome!!!
Amazing clarity great expressions lovely POV and last but not the least a great composition.
Just wanted to ask if the vignette around the lower part of her face is natural or u added it later ???

Gorgeous shot - a sweet expression. Unusual POV but it works to create a sense of wonder and enchantment.

What a sharp portrait of this lovely girl showing her lovely face features in such an unusual POV!
I like her eyes and her mouth from this angle, but I dislike the nostrils from this POV.
Excellent lighting and good grey tones.
Beautiful texture of the straw hat.
Good B&W and a gorgeous model.

has the country girl reached the city & she is so happy,because it appears as beautiful as she had dreamed it would? Really love the look you have captured with your model,
she certainly knows how to show emotions.

Your model is so so beautiful and you work the portrait with the same elegance and delicate mood. The light, the softness is excellent.

Superbe portrait de ce magnifique modèle. J'aime beaucoup le cadrage et la lumière mais je trouve que le lissage est un peu trop important faisant trop "disparaître" le grain de peau.

Your model is really beautiful. But the B&W work is even better. I love the treatment, the composition and the pose of the model.
