Beautiful portrait! Well composed.

Really like the crop on this one, also has a great feel to it with the expression and B&W conversion. The hair in front of the left eye (her right) disturbs the balance for me a little as it's a very happy shot and so would be nice to see both eyes fully. Great DOF as well.

wonderful natural expression, i can see she is not bothered with the chilly and windy weather! good light on the face, nice contrast, i just wish the runaway hair wouldn't darken her right eye so much.

I wish that piece of hair weren't obscuring her eye, but maybe I'm nitpicking... :) This is a lovely capture and the high contrast works beautifully here.

I used to date a girl named Joy, I don't think this is her.... :)
This so full of excitement, like the wind blown look.
Where the mittens the same color?

Cute portrait, the hair in the eye is distracting but the black and white looks great.

Lovely portrait and a beautiful subject.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I love her expression. It doesn't feel posed at all and makes for a great inviting picture. I don't mind the hair blowing around a bit, but the 2 strands right by her eye are a little distracting.

Cool portrait. I like the wind blown look. The one thing that draws me into the photo are the gloves being two different colors.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/16/2009 11:38:59 PM
I like the high-key look, I think it goes very well with your subject, the expression and the overall great feel and energy of the image.

Cute. Good choice for BW.

Nice expression, odd colour mittens and the high contrast make this less "simple" than it should be
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/16/2009 03:12:18 PM
She has a lovely smile. Her expression here is great.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/16/2009 12:15:17 PM
Fantastic mood and expression!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/16/2009 04:02:20 AM
nice shot
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/16/2009 03:01:07 AM
Don't assume that because you have an affinity for your subject, the rest of the world will too. Otherwise, a good workmanlike photo.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2009 03:05:29 PM
seems a bit overexposed, even for a high key treatment
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2009 03:02:26 PM
wonderful--has a very natural, spontaneous feeling
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2009 01:43:11 PM
Nice B&W portrait. Well composed.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2009 12:15:06 PM
Good pic and expression. Nice lighting too.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2009 09:49:07 AM
a little too contrasty IMO
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2009 08:12:42 AM
Great portrait, beautiful model
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2009 07:41:02 AM
Nice grab. The flying hair indicates the breezy weather, which complements the casual, fun smile. The dark corner of her right eye is a little distracting, needs the white brightened a bit, maybe. Cool shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2009 05:58:54 AM
it looks to me as if the eyes werent so sharp as other parts of face...
thats why just 5 ;)

Nice joyful portrait in B&W
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2009 02:20:43 AM
Nice moment captured here. I like hair flying around, but in her eye is a bit distracting.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2009 01:48:44 AM
Great composition and expression. Well done. 7.

A fun photo!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2009 10:17:55 PM
A genuine, relaxed, happy, capture. Lovely.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2009 07:50:29 PM
A bit too hot on the right side, and I don't like the strand of hair blowing across her eye. Nice expression, and nice use of DOF.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2009 06:57:35 PM
very nece portrait
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2009 05:51:57 PM
Very nice smile that makes the bad uneven lighting a lesser issue for the picture, good capture.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2009 10:57:35 AM
I really like the expression here, very natural. The only nitpick I have is that on my monitor the highlights are a tad blown. A portrait to be proud of though.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2009 10:25:00 AM
very natural, relaxed portrait. the expression and softness work together to enhance the image. composition good. 7
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2009 10:11:04 AM
ya know...this is a wonderful shot...but it lacks focus...not sharp enough
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2009 12:06:28 AM
Beautiful smile. I think the hair covering the left eye is a bit of a distraction, it keeps me going back and forth between her eyes because of the light/dark contrast.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 02:09:13 PM
cute girl.. the right glove seems blown out compared to the left.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 02:00:54 PM
Good lighting, very natural.

03/13/2009 01:43:12 AM
bit over blown for my liking
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2009 11:37:28 PM
The wisp across the eye spoils an otherwise nice portrait IMO.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2009 11:21:31 PM
That's a warm, inviting smile you've captured. To me it looks as if the left half of her face is a tad darker, although not sure if it was your intent or not.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2009 07:17:14 PM
To much light on the right but she is pretty. Nice story to it and good detail.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2009 06:19:35 PM
The contrast between the gloves and the two halves of the face is too jarring. It really should be balanced out a bit more in my opinion.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2009 09:50:32 AM
cure portrait, nice B&W treatmenr
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2009 06:45:13 AM
Nice snapshot a little over exposed on the right side.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2009 12:43:19 AM
nice portrait, lots of personality!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2009 12:38:05 AM
I like the composition and the naturalness of the model's face. The difference in lighting from the left to the right, though, is a bit disconcerting.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2009 12:05:18 AM
love her expression wish the hair wasn't a crossed her other eye.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 09:13:38 PM
Lovely portrait. It would be great if we could see her left eye better (it's blocked a little by the hair), though I suppose there's not a whole lot you can do about that!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 05:51:38 PM
Great smile, and expression on her face.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 05:45:48 PM
nice smiley portrait
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 04:29:58 PM
Lovely smile.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 03:51:23 PM
The first thing I notice is that her gloves look different. Is the one on the right just blown out?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 03:38:45 PM
So carefree. I love her hair blowing in front of her face. Wish the left eye had the same catch light. What an adorable smile.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 01:44:05 PM
great smile:) too bad the wind blew that bit of hair over her eye, its a bit distracting
