Jared Christopher Martin with a cruelly twisted Botticelli face and freckles from caravaggio this is subcutaceous sensulality at its best.

Andreas Heumann Lovely picture. She knows her looks and you know how to capture it.

This site does not allow me to see the shadow detail with the white BG as I would like to see just a little bit more shadow detail in her right eye. Life is often hidden in the near darkness even if her left eye is the main focus point it would be nice to see a hint more shadow detail to give more balance.

A VERY slight graduated back light (bottom to top) for the portrait to have more depth might help too.

Thank you for posting

Marcus Hewson Thank you dear Andreas for your kind appreciation and comment.

To tell you about my thoughts.. I did not wanted to have depht in fact i wanted to create the opposite. This is not only a capture it is a complete postprocess all in one. The hair is made to look two dimensional, the other side (with the eye in darkness) is a part of postprocess too. I wanted to
get a main focus of the watchers eye to first have contact with her right eye and getting a light streak from top left down to bottom right. All to increase
her decent way to show us arrogance, contempt wich leads us to darkness, one step back and there she is.

You are right about the Details. One need to have a well calibrated monitor to see every detail and of course i can not upload the full resolution here.

Thank you, Marcus
