Final Encore in B Flat by autumn-rain Final Encore in B Flat by autumn-rain
I didn't set out with a motive when taking this photo.
But I've seen so many wonderful emotive portraits submitted that I thought I should give it a try, plus I had to do a mini-project for my photography class at VCA

Me and `newklear took a long time to come up with the title
I won't bore you with the details :D

feel free to ask questions about this piece

Enjoy :)

Pretty :) I also feel flat when looking at this.... because the border kinda squishes everything in.

This is beautiful, I love the overall 'delicate' feel to it, both the flowers and the soft lighting work to give that impression, and it's interesting to see sadness (I presume she's crying) softened like this. Very nice.

¿?what happened to my post?

well, I said that I like the picture, its a very good idea, and the sepia effect is nice too

But I wouldn't have used that frontal flash, it makes her... flat, Instead, a flash from the top would have made a "divine inspiration" effect over the girl.

By the way, I see that you take piano lessons, can play any piece of Satie?? I love his work.

Nice picture, nice idea, and nice legs too!

(yeap, I'm a boy) XD

I would hace used a flexo, iluminating from the top, like a "divine inspiration", complementary to that LOVELY piano.

I see that you take piano lessons, can play any piece of Satie??. I love satie.

what camera did you use?

Nice picture and nice legs!

She looks like she's trying to hide under the flowers. Either she's scared/depressed, or she's playing hide & seek. Or she's shy about giving the flowers to someone... Yeah.
Nice tones in this. Just enough light. And the sepia looks good on it. Hooray. =)

it give me a very sad feeling but at least she got the flowers. hehehehe
if the top of the background is totally black, it will be more great thought. The white (table cloth or what we call it?) kind of distracted me. Overall, well done! :thumbsup:

i like the idea and the composition, its juzz that i cant get what shes up to...if maybe, juzz maybe...you can show some more part of her telling her story, i think it will be a very strong photo....

well you can still shoot for another one... nice try..at least youre tryin....hope to see more of your works....
