Caleb, you make a nice job on this photo, I like the model eyes, and she is looking with a special way. I like the contrast of the blue veil. Excelent.

Good to see you back after a short break. The pose is wonderful, her eyes, her lips, the lights in her eyes, but most of all the light in general. Excellent work here, but i do not need to tell you this, because you already know how good your work is...
Take care, Henk

Just back from the 2008 pushkar mela. Quite an experience but not much sleep, as you certainly know if you had an hotel overlooking the lake !
Nice expression of this this young woman. However not somewhat oversaturated ??

A wonderful portrait in very beautiful light. The shadow on the left side makes it very interesting. Great contrasting colours against the OOF BG. Very sharp and a nice pose. I do like portraits very much.

Lovely sharp portrait of an indian woman, not centered, and a blurred background whose colour is contrasting with the deep blue saree.

The picture is excellent, full of soul and striking in colors. The violet veil is very eye catching, so is her wild look and black lips. The sharp details of her face and her hair, shining of oil, are very good too. The composition is strong. But there is something mischievous in it, that troubles me here. Like a vaudou enchantment. Well, that's my vision. And I know Rajasthan has nothing to do with vaudou!
PS:Welcome back around here!

A fine portrait with vivid colors, natural skin tones, and a telling expression. Nice work and TFs. Gerald

How are you my friend! Nice to see your stuff again; I don't know if it was you or me, but I haven't seen your work for long and was thinking about you yesterday. Hope life is cool with you...
Nice portrait under fabulous light. The filtered light allows to create a rich effect on the skin of your subject and allows your model to look directly in direction of the light source. Good eye contact - not obvious with Indian women - and interesting background too.
I'm going straight in your gallery...

Well, isn't she gorgeous, Caleb?!
You really know what to do with your female subjects.
And that light on her face... ah, what a symphony!!!

Deep Purple she is incredibly beautiful in you version, a fantastic portrait that would make any fashion photographer green of envy.

Your expertise with people, specially faces, is astoundingly impressive. I like the way you look at them and they look at you. lovely bright colours and solid ambient tones

what a light
and the colors are magnificant too

Beautiful portrait with excellent technical execution and rich colors. The harsh shadows bother me a bit, but I can live with this minor issue. Great color combination, background and eye contact. I don't remember if I mentioned this before, your contribution to the site is among the most the most remarkable.

Such a delightful light - her face so full of who she is - a really nice portrait which really captivates me with a sense of being there in the moment you took this - there is a tension and expectation of movement from one state to another in her face but also something both intense and relaxed about the way she looks at you - great work Caleb!!

this is a portrait with lots of impact. Her direct gaze, her dark lips and jewelled forehead.She has an egnimatic smile too.

beautifull portrait with a strong glance and a very nice light.
As usual; it's beautifull.

C'est un portrait tout simplement magnifique. Tout y est: les couleurs, la lumière et ce très beau visage au regard de braises. J'aime beaucoup.
