    With this intensity I would suggest she is seeing inwardly something in herself.
    Wonderful portrait, gives this one many questions :-))

  • yes, she was ‘miles away’.

    Very fine editing….makes her dress come out fabulous !

  • she was gorgeous from top to bottom, sitting alone and totally unaware of the mad photography sitting several yards away

    Beautiful portrait of a strong woman. And you must have a strong sense of “steady” to shoot at 1/8!!!

  • i should have been a heart surgeon :)

    I’m a big fan of natural lighting and you’ve done such a great job here…well done on capturing that expression! Treatment is so apt.. :))

  • thanks di… i really like this capture…the girl had such wonderful features, i couldn’t resist a crack at a shot even though i knew the distance was beyond good resolution capabilities of the wee Nikon :))
