Very intense expression on her face. She is looking out the window at the rain and maybe something else. I love the composition and mood this evokes. Good work.

A well lit and focused portrait. The black and white works well here. I am not sure if what I see are raindrops but I find them a tad distracting. But your shot so no deductions for that

A very nice portrait here. I like your rendering in black and white as it adds drama to the scene. Water droplets accent the image. Well done ~ Steve

Hello Gallia

Good initial impact and very nice composition. This is an interesting image. I was passing through this group of images here and when I saw this image passing by I backed up and studied it for a while.
I really like it. Black and white speak well here. Love the details of this ladies face. Soft full lips and eyes that are focused on something commanding.
I don't know if she is under water or what else the bubbles are. But it sure brings out questions that make me wonder.

Intriguing story here.

Roger

I am a real fan of B&W portraits - they are so evocative and this one is no exception.

This piece is dark, sullen and moody. These are not "bad" characteristics when portrayed in this light.

The camera angle offers a very different and attractive image of this woman. She is unaware of the lens' proximity. Her gaze is distant and thoughtful - I love it.

May I offer a suggestion for future portraits? Open up to F/4 - F/2. This will put the subjects face slightly out of focus and make all the water drops (I think that is whats in front of her) very sharp. This technique will not make the face unrecognizable but will give the take a very dream like impression. Just a thought.

This one is very, very good ... B-)

Quite an interesting portrait photo posted here! Your full and angled composition gives us quite a novel viewpoint to enjoy. Exposure and sharpness are good. Wonder what caused those dots? They seem to add interest to the photo! Nicely done!

Cool,Galia!
She's a hauntingly attractive model and your 'water drop spattered' portrait of her ( which reminds me of my experimental photographic work entitled 'Sorcery in the Rain' which a friend and I collaborated on several years ago ) looks Great!
A very 'Good Show',my friend! : )

Very nice black and white portrait. The low angle you shot it from makes it more interesting. The look on the woman's face is mysterious. You are curious as to what is on her mind. Love the light water droplets that make is seem like she is looking out a window. Nice work.
