Thanks, Carolyn, Damian and Ma!!I was trying to portray despair in this one for a project that I am presently working on. I hope that it worked. I appreciate these comments very much and value your opinions!!. #16628

Donna R. Moratelli 10/7/2002 7:26:41 AM

Wow, THANK YOU JEFF! #16688

Adam Bolt 10/7/2002 8:13:59 AM

WOW AGAIN!! Super strong image and the eyes just take your breath away!. I am curious thou... how did you get so much light back into the models face since the sun looks as if it is behind her and to her right. Flash would have just bounced straight back off the glass and a reflector would have been near impossible to set up with the area that you were working within.
I can see this image doing very well for you Donna.
Cheers Adam #16693

Carolyn M. Fletcher 10/7/2002 8:56:08 AM

Wow! Six Wows..You must be proud! #16697

Donna R. Moratelli 10/7/2002 9:33:39 AM

wow Adam!<< Thanks for the comment. She does have beautiful expressive eyes. She is an awsome looking chic, I agree!,,Regarding the light source, She was outside and I was inside of that horrible place. It was strong afternoon sidelighting. It did illuminate her face enough to give it a glow. If you look closely, you can see a shadow of the shattered glass on her face. The light was coming from the right and bounced a little bit off the glass and reflected on to her face also. Thanks for the WOW ADAM!! #16703

Donna....woo hooo!! Congrats on your win!! This is awes a strong image...emotive and well done. I love it!!

I knew about your win days ago and this was my first chance to post. Don't ask's been a nighmarish week. When it rains it pours!! For some reason, this last month has been so challenging! #23271

Donna R. Moratelli

Thanks Delores, Tell me about it. I have been having a horrible month too. Ironicly, I was thinking of you yesterday. I havn't seen anything new of yours and wondered where you were. #23310

Dolores Neilson

Well then...we can commiserate! Do you think it will help?? Aw shucks...maybe we should just go shooting instead...that always makes me feel better! #23365

Donna R. Moratelli

shooting??? whats that?? It's seems like it's been raining for a year straight. It actually has probably rained here for about 2 months straight with a a couple of partly cloudy days inbetween..Maybe it will stop in June// Any other suggestions?? Remember that it gets dark at 4pm now too. I don't like the dark. I can't see in low light conditions at all. Night photography is OUT for me. #23377

i hope this doesn't freak you out, but I LOVE this image. I first saw it about five years ago and I loved it then. i'm a much better photographer now and I still love it. I almost always think about it when I see shattered windows. it was just an image that really stuck with me. I just wanted to share with you that it has really inspired me and I think it's a fantastic portrait. #7332323

Donna R. Moratelli 8/9/2009 3:32:56 AM
