Daniella- Girl, this is one beautiful portrait. This is the work of someone who has that masters touch. Love the pose to start with. the facial features are so sweet, love the lips parts a bit and then those eyes are so gorgeous. Fantastic work with the skin tones. The colors, lighting, and clarity are exceptional. I especially love the treatment you gave the picture and the textural quality of it.
Amazing work my friend.
Have a wonderful weekend and take care. #7987380

Nikki McDonald level-classic November 11, 2009

You had some excellent entries in October, Daniella. I loved White on White #2 for its stark simplicity and Fall Details for its richness of color, combination of textures and unusual angle -- but this is my favorite. The angle, crop, expression and lighting are all wonderful and I really like the effects -- just enough to add interest and hint at a painterly effect without taking over the portrait itself. Very nice work. #8121927
