Robyn in the light


This is a shot of my girlfriend Robyn with an interesting look on her face. I like the fact that she doesn't really have a specific expression on her face, it seems to add some mystery. I also think the sharp contrast between the lights and darks on her face and eyes gives the photo a lot of interest.
Even the fact that certain sections are slightly overexposed (her forehead and fingers) is ok in relation to the overall tone of the photo.
I added the darkened and blurred bottom righthand corner of the photo so there is some mystery as to what Robyn is staring at. To be honest I forget what it actually was (I think a plant).

Thanks for the comments. I like the overall 'feel' of the image.
It's really nice to have a free photogenic model.

Feeling is good here. I like the tone of colors, and her emotions are spot on.

I take credit for the photo but Robyn's going to have to take credit for being lovely.

Hi Ahamed, this portrait is really good, although the contrast you can notice the tones of the skin.

Thanks Luisa,
I agree that some tone is lost because of the strong light but I think the deep contrast is worth it.
