this is a nice portrait of a very good looking face.Your composition to show only part details on the face is excellent and its more attractive in Black and white. Ania is a beautiful girl.Thanks for sharing- Vikram

Hi there Ola, I think you have a great shot here of your friend Ania. It does look good in B&W, and the composition angle is good. Nice job.

witam cien na scienie na nie ale ogolnie fajny kadr

She gives me calmness.


I like this point of view, Ola. Your friend is very pretty, and you capture her personality well. Her face is just a bit out of focus, but still a nice shot of her.

Wygląda, jakby nie chciała, żeby jej zrobić zdjęcie. Niektórzy nazywają takie ujęcie - zdjęciem ucha. Ja też kiedyś dostałem taką opinię ;-) Moim zdaniem trzeba ją poprosić o zapozowanie.

Mmmm... yes, I like the idea of this pose and the crop you chose, Ola. It might have looked better if you had asked your friend to remove her shirt, to avoid the bit in the left corner.
I also think the shade caused by the flash is a bit disturbing. You could have avoided this, if you had held the camera vertically with the flash pointing towards the right. Okay, it's not the most comfortable shooting position, I agree ;o). But it would have hidden the shadows behind Ania's face and hair. Give it a try, it really works.
I think b&w works very well here, even though I generally prefer colour shots.
Anyway, TFS.

Hi Ola, nice black and white conversion. and the tight crop and angle works as well to make it an unusual portrait. Ron

Beautiful picture has been taken. Such an interesting point of view, right suitable for men.

Thanks for sharing an inviting portrait.

Hi Ola,

This is a fantastic portrait. I like the levels of sharpness and blurring. And the shadow that frames her face is really nice too! :) I like the different curves in her hair, and the fancy earings- a very unique attribute to the photo. Most of all I like the 'almost' modest/shy expression she has in the image. Very well laid out, well done! Thanks for sharing this photo of your friend.


Hello Ola!
I like a lot her roguish smile to you. Complicity of friends ;)
