The colors of this photo are superbs and the composition is great!
The pretty woman is like an anachronism on this shoot, so the result is great.


i like the composition in this photo, the location is perfect for moody portrait shoots :)
the model is very pretty :) maybe having her pose a little instead of just sitting on the chair would complement the composition even more...

Excellent, I think daria is the name of this girl ??

I like the spontaneity of this picture. Everything is casual yet communicating... no effort has been made to 'set it up'. Besides that she is beautiful, I find her body language very well captured... a very teen mood of ambivalence. Great.

ohh, what a sight to behold... i like the background where the pretty girl was made to pose! but i think she was just looking at the camera! great idea, Robert!

What I like in this photography and in the previous one,the women are placed in normal element, I mean no artificial set up. In the last one the wall is exceptional. Of course the girl is also exceptional.

This is a well-composed picture and your model is beautiful. The setting is perfect: such beauty among the debris only accentuates her. Bravo!

Very nice photo indeed.
The background is great..

This is good. You have chosen the right background an dthe colors are well-seen. My wish is to take a wide-angle portrait as good as this. Thanks for the idea.

Composition au contraste détonnant et insolite …
On sent le goût pour les photographies de Saudek …
Une photo, le modèle est habillé, l'autre photo, le modèle est nu!

hey robert!
i like the cleanliness of her clothes, the way she looks and the expression on her face. she's a contrast to the derelict state of the factory(?), very good portrait but i think, it would have worked better if you had been a little closer!

otherwise good job rob!

The great composition makes it a "thick" photo, wellcome to TL.

excellent, I like the contrast created by the space and the beautifull ladie, the space almost dead and the pretty woman full of life to share. excellent

dobre, ³adnie kolorki sie komponuja
swietna kompozycja
pozdrawiam e.

czesc Robert,

rewelacyjne zdjęcie. kompozycja zapiera dech. fajnie uchwyciles kontrast pomiędzy urodą dziewczyny, a marnością otoczenia:)

pozdrawiam, pawel

The whole concept and the execution of it is fabulous, Robert!
A minor criticism, though, about the burnt out highlights on the subject's pants. Otherwise, absolutely excellent.

the setting is really great in this picture. your model is really pretty. everything is very sharp and and the colors are very good.

love josh chang

genialne tlo!!!

piekna modelka!

Gratuluje swietnej kompozycji,

Good idea, well executed :) Young and old.
I would give it a bit of contrast to show up color of a wall bit more, tried to see WS but when open it is not there,..:(
All the best.

Hi Robert

good composition and nice portrait works
well, could it be much better with horizontal framing?
