    How will I ever get any work done, if photo after photo arrives that really invite my comments.
    This one has some very interesting lighting aspects, I like this one a lot, and I like the fact that this is a profile.
    It makes me wonder and imagine: what could it be like if you switched background and sweater colours? Just a thought. Could be ugly, all wrong... I'm only wondering.
    You went for the high key look of this profile, didn't you?

    You could use grey back ground. The face contour needs more definition.

    High key, yes. Thanks for your reply laFoto. I always read your literary comments with pleasure :) Tell me, how german woman speaks/write so fluently in English? Just don't tell me "It was hard working from 20 years, boy" :( I don't have that much time ;)

    I like the shot as is.. I don't think a grey background would help any but then I'm a fan of the high key pure white backgrounds, like those that bailey uses.

    High key is good, but I think it's gone a little too far here, maybe just my monitor, but the check looks blown out.

    ....um, weeeellllll, the thing is (and sorry about that in advance): it were 20 years of hard work, more or less. I read English in uni and am a licenced translator.

    But I tell you what.
    The real secret is using the language, using the language and again using the language. I rarely use it speaking it though, but daily via this and another internet board that I visit. And I stopped reading books that I read for leisure in German. I only go out to get myself English books (which - I must say with some sadness - greatly affects my Spanish, which is my second foreign language, and negatively so... :(!)

    This is a wonderful photograph. The dark clothing gives a bit of weight to the bottom of the frame. I agree that there's quite a bit of contrast here... much like you'd see in high fashion photography. Works for me. The tilt of the head, creating a diagonal line, really makes the composition.

    I think I would have made this photo of a dark haired model in dark clothing on a dark background. I would have missed this wonderful image.

    Nice work!!

    Great shot. I think that the silluete is very well defined.
    Composition is nice, calm, and the lightining was perfect. Even being so bright, it lost almost no details.
