I find it a nice interesting portrait. Sober expression in sober colours and background. The only thing that I find disturbing is the light that emphasizes her hand. Because I can't see if she is leaning on her elbow, or maybe she is listening to a phone. Who is this woman, and what is the situation?
Thank you! And I never took the lighting on her hand into my attention before. That really strikes me as important now that I do. Thankyou so much for bringing this to my attention! I really appreciate it.
Yes, she is one of my best friends. We had been outside taking pictures and just messing around. I told her to take a deep breath and act natural. I believe she was lost in thought, as that's how she often looks when she is.
This is a wonderful capture! I love low-key, and here it works to the best of its possibilities. Also, the model's pensive, slightly worried (?) expression and expressive eyes really draw the attention. Very well done!
