Mathilde Collot from Fontainebleau, France

L'image s'est arrêtée ici aujourd'hui! Reste juste un peu de vent dans ses cheveux! Mais cette complicité du regard, cette douceur, comme si elle essayait de faire au mieux ou de te donner ce qu’elle avait de meilleur pour ton image!! Superbe! Je t'embrasse Adèle et bonne journée à toi.

@Mathilde Collot: Un merveilleux commentaire sur la photographie comme toujours, Mathilde! La dernière image volée ... et même son visage et ses yeux m'a captivé! Merci beaucoup

Arantza from Menorca, Spain

Adela gran retrat igual que ahir( no vaig poder comentar) un dia m'han d'explicar com fas aquests robats sense que la gent s'enteri! Molt bé el to sèpia.Bon dia!

18 Mar 2010 6:45am

@Arantza: Potser una mica de sang freda i moltes hores de fer-ne! En un primer moment do t'atreveixes, més tard ho tornes a intentar i fas la primera... de mica en mica vas agafant confiança i ja està... una abraçada amiga Arantza!

MARIANA from Waterloo, Canada

Beautiful portrait . Love sepia and love this image much more than yesterday. You know me - I simple love focused images .

18 Mar 2010 3:09pm

@MARIANA: I think if you know something your photo preferences ... noticing yours. Me too I like the focused images ... there are very interesting. Many times however are good pictures and it is not. There are also technically perfect pictures that touched my heart! After much thought I have concluded that there are good images with soul and focused or not focused or other images that do not have it! No trouble? Maybe you just have pictures that we like and some do not. Perhaps our mood also influences! I understand perfectly that you prefer one to the other and I do not care ... I prefer a candid opinion that helps me move in the picture. Best regards Mariana and thanks you very much!

Barbara Manners from Toronto, Canada

And I much prefer yesterday's image...yesterday she was winning the battle with the wind, today she looks a little defeated by it. Nonetheless, you tell a story with both images!

18 Mar 2010 3:39pm

@Barbara Manners: Thank you very much for the picture comment, Barbara ... image yesterday was the first of the series ... Today is the last ... she "discovered" at that moment. Disorientation? surprise? You are right to say it's a story! For me it was a great experience! Best regards!

Fabienne from Quelque part ou ailleurs, France

Magnifique portrait Adela, excellent cadrage qui met parfaitement en valeur son regard.

18 Mar 2010 3:54pm

@Fabienne: Je vous remercie beaucoup pour le commentaire ... si vous avez remarqué dans ses yeux ... Objectif atteint! Bonne journée Fabienne

Sonia Nansid from Stockholm, Sweden

Perdona que et contradigui estimada Adela o més bé que complementi el teu comentari. Malauradament jo he mirat als ulls d'algú que ja estava mort i vaig pensar que encara vivia. També he mirat molts ulls vius que estaven més morts que els d'ell. Potser són els meus ulls els que ho veuen així.

18 Mar 2010 4:05pm

@Sonia Nansid: Segurament tens tota la raó ...! i no crec que siguin només els teus ulls que ho veuen d'aquesta manera... suposo que tot va lligat als sentiments... i a la pròpia experiència de vida! M'agradaria que mai més no tinguessis que veure ulls sense vida. Una abraçada!

Curly from South Shields, United Kingdom

Nice one Adela, you have captured an indomitable spirit.

Phil David Alexander Morris from Saskatoon, Canada

This is the nicest so far in the series, she is wonderful. The sepia works perfectly with this one.

@Phil David Alexander Morris: Thanks you veru much! Greetings!

Self-Indulgence from Chicagoland, United States

Wonderful character and good sharp focus. Older people have stories written on their faces, she looks like she has much to tell!

19 Mar 2010 2:34am

@Self-Indulgence: Thank you very much for the picture comment! Greetings! Adela

manel from Girona, Spain

Son dos imágenes completamente diferentes. Como dos historias en una sola y en el corto espacio de tiempo de cruzar una calle. En la primera, da la sensación de tener una sola preocupación: luchar contra los elementos adversos; no parece ni recordarse que ha solicitado ayuda para cruzar esa calle... En esta de hoy,
ya a punto de acabar la travesía o incluso ya en la acera, su mirada denota a la vez, agradecimiento y sorpresa; no entiende que con el problema que ella ha tenido, otra persona, la que la ha ayudado, pueda estar haciendole fotografías y en su interior, en su pensamiento, debe de estar preguntándose: ¿ yo estoy bien ? o ¿ es ella que está mal ?.
Bona nit i una forta abraçada.

19 Mar 2010 11:36pm

@manel: Me encanta la teva història Manel... tinc la impressió que fins i tot la vas viure en primera persona! Una abraçada!

Chris from Haute Loire, France

Un très beau visage Adela que tu a su capturer avec douceur et tendresse...

20 Mar 2010 6:05am

@Chris: Merci beaucoup Chris, je t'embrasse!

yiannis krikis from thessaloniki, Greece

excellent framing

20 Mar 2010 10:56am

@yiannis krikis: Thansk you very much friend yiannis! Best regards, Adela

Manel from Girona, Spain

Una mirada de tota una vida. Diuen que els retrats on el model mira directa i intencionadament la Cámara son els millors. Aquest n’és una bonica mostra.

23 Mar 2010 3:12pm

@Manel: Jo penso el mateix Manel! Mirar directament a l'objectiu és semblant a despullar-se totalment! Et deixa desvalgut! Gràcies Manel!

Raquel Camarero from Vitoria-Gasteiz, Spain

Nunca he aprendido a hacer retratos. Soy una negada.
Y creo que saber captar la esencia de una persona a través de una imagen es lo más difícil del mundo.
Quizás por eso se me de tan mal.
Bonito retrato...

23 Mar 2010 3:32pm

@Raquel Camarero: Todo se aprende en el mundo del retrato... primero has de estar segura ti misma... cuando lo estés retratar no te parecerá difícil! De todas maneras esta señora no era una modelo la "pille" de una manera circunstancial un día de nieve y frío en la calle! Cuando quieras hablamos del tema! Tienes mi correo en Am3! Un abrazo Adela

Vitor Martins from Lisboa, Portugal

As beautiful as the previous. Great close up.
