First of all, congratulations on such a beautiful yet simple piece. The black and white effect give such a deep and sorrowful feeling, which helps with the slightly sad expression on the face. She also seems so lost and helpless- due to the mouth and eyes. The black on the lips make her look pale and lifeless, as if she's just draining away, day by day. The eyes are extremely thoughtful, giving a feeling that she either just wants to give up or perhaps find a way to get away- get away from her current problem. The darker shade under the eyes give her a tired look, which gives the effect that she has been feeling this sorrow for a while. The messy hair frames the face extremely well, and the fact she is bare- like all emotion has been drained- completes the look. Amazing work. Bravo.

this one is powdered a little bit but it works because the focus is the directionality of the photo rather than the details

No tienen nada que ver pero por un momento me recordˇ a la cantante de siouxie and the banshees.
Me gusta mucho esta foto, creo que la zona de la cara un poco sobre-expuesta le da un toque mas especial.

Bonitas fotos. :D
