Nice portrait, Edward. I like how the girl is looking at me from behind violin. I was thinking about taking a similar portrait of my daughter, but I found it hard to do so. She’s wants to play more than pose for the photos ;-).
You did a nice job on this one.

Great portrait!!! I love how she doesn't show much emotion which doesn't distract from the violin...both are equally appealing! : ) #293931

Edward Siegel 12/13/2003 11:24:44 AM

Thank you very much for the great comments. She is my daughter and she is my 'in house' model. You'd never know from the photo that she was constantly many more are you going to take?

Thanks again

Excellent Composition Edward! The f Stop Is Just Enough To Blur The Violin A Bit While Keeping The Eye Sharp!! Beautiful Model! #293965
