    A little dark, a little cold, and that is exactly what I like about it! :)

    Besides being quite small, I think it is too dark and looses too much.

    original
    slightly brightened
    only the face warmed a bit to lose the Queen of the Damned coloration

    Sorry Maria... not feeling this. This just doesn't seem like your quality of work...

    tbh, I expected this kind of reaction.

    It's perfectly ok if you don't like the photo, and if most people don't like the photo just the way it is... but I really didn't want perfectly exposed and "right" photo.

    I wanted "the Queen of the Damned" photo

    I think you've just given me a compliment... an odd one but still a compliment :)

    I have always leaned to the darker side of exposure, I just like it better. And even though it is dark, the red really "pops" through! :)
