Hi! Magnificent work... Defenatly a fav in my main gallery. I have created a high quality and advanced technique photography only club . Do you wish to submit this piece to the club gallery? It will have only the best work here on DA, and only the best will be invited Many thanks for the time and keep up the great work.
I do not often comment pictures in depth, but this really caught my eye at the first glance.
Let’s start of with the image composition where you have succeeded in taking good care of the lines, curves and shapes to get more depth for the picture.
This together with well weighted foreground, middle ground and a nice background makes it interesting to analyze even further and also leads the eye into the picture which an very important element.
The colors are beautiful mixed as you have been able to get some of the contrast colors just so right as it can be. This helps in setting the mood of the picture.
As the eye is natural drawn to contrast people tend to overdo this to such an extend that it ruins the picture. This is also something that your picture show that the photographer behind it has a good feeling for it.
You have focused wisely on the parts you would like to stand out to the audience to make them get the first impression of the picture.
What I miss is perhaps some of the small details in the shadowed parts, they are hard to get right but with a combination of the above and some post process in photoshop you will be able to get it absolute right in the future.
The makeup under the eye is amazing- almost reminds me of some kind of scar. And the little dots of light on that funky red spoon- are those the actual reflections it gave that you've captured? Haha, the spoon looks as if its just floating there. Her eyes are captivating...
