this image drew me in for several reasons. the pop of the red on the flower and her nails, to start, is very well executed. as well, her stare directly into the camera draws the viewer into the image very deeply. i love the way her eyes are depicted - they are very intense. the muted red tones of the rest of the image compliment the overall picture quite remarkably. i think square was an excellent choice for the crop. there is very little that i have to criticize about this image - i think it is a truly well envisioned and executed piece.
In first place I need to say that I loved this photo not only because of the style or because of the singularity compared to other portraits of humans that I have seen before. I loved it actually because of the mood of the photo and the atmosphere reigning in it! Well, I just think that every person have got their own preferences and, without fail, they may find something that meets their predilections!
The photo by itself is nice, absolutely splendent! The idea of hiding one piece of the girls face is not a discovery but, even so, it continues to be a very creative move!
The color composition also is very interesting and, I may even say, intriguing! Very clever by the artist was not to decolourize the girls face and the background completely because it is nice to look not only on the flower but also on her beautiful face! Using the red colour for the flower and the nails just to vivify the whole photo also is an interesting idea! Now the picture have got something special about it and it brings more brightness and creativity in it! Good work! And just interesting why the artist chose the color red but not something else...
In fact, it is a work of good-quality, nice and tender! I loved it pretty much and belive that many of the other people did the same!
