Hi Alina

It is a great photo. It is the treatment of the light like that of a baroque painting. The success of the colors: the red of the dress contrasting with the background, the model of back that increases the mystery, the texture.
In my opinion, I believe that it deserves a WS without the framing.

Sorry but I think you wasted a good idea, the treatment you made and the few light made it a kind of patchwork.
It is almost impossible to recognize some detail of you, and more, you dont even show your face, the result is a bit anonymous IMHO.
Please dont get angry with me for that, I really didnt want to be hursh, take it as an honest critique on a work which has some potential, otherwise I would have just ignore it.

stay well

Hi Alina, fascinating Painting with great PP work, splendid self portrait, very well done, ciao Silvio

Hi Alina, this is a real piece of art!
You managed very well to take your picture and I love the pp work that you did.
Makes it a real painting.

Very well done! Take care, Yan:)

Ps: many thx for your great comment on "Joffre Lakes, First one of the 3 Lakes" watch for the next photos of the place for the rest of the hike :)

Wonderful idea and well done - an excellent idea for a self portrait - most people take photos of themselves behind the camera in a mirror (like me!) but this is both interesting and different. The result is a sultry, provocative oil painting.
I love it!

Bardzo ładnie to zrobiłaś. Podobaja mi się kolory i faktura zastosowanego filtra. Można smiało powiesić na ścianie i to w honorowym miejscu. Gratuluję, bardzo udana praca.
