Her expression is really wonderful with big smile, and background color is also effective.

She seems happy. I don't know why, but she seems.
With pictures like this we are more human.

Great portrait with a nice smile on her face.

Another great portrait by you, Fusun!! Thank you for your stunning contributions to this site!
The background excentuates her face and almost looks like it reflects in her eyes and her ring too. She has such a great expressive face - one would never know she's almost blind. I guess she felt the photographer :).

Beautiful portrait, the portrait quality and style reminds me of National Geographic,
very nicely done

the wrinkles on her face... not needed to tell much about it; just magnificient... the smile she gave i guess this is her biggest smile, and her hand on her face like she is trying for a bigger smile which ended up with a bewildered smile.

How beautiful old people can be when they show a smile and their skin tells us their whole life and you captured it perfectly, good enlightened, not to sharp to pass this on to us.
Thanks for sharing Fusun

Yes, it’s a fantastic picture of a fantastic model. Nothing more needs to be said.

excellent portrait Fusun .. thanks for sharing ... cheers ... sarju
PS: reminds me of this almost blind and mute person I met in a tea stall on some trek in Uttranchal ... everybody yelled at him because he could'nt work right ... but he always smiled .. and I pondered "Do I really have any problem in the world?" .... I think that we whine a lot for nothing in the first world

An amazing portrait!
One more evidence that the beauty is a category which has nothing to do with the age!
All the best,

Very good portrait, may be the flashing is a little bit toostrong for me.He gives sharpness but we loose something like intimity.

I thought that I had written something with this photo, but apparently I did n't get that far.
Splendid portrait, Fusun, indeed she gives you a nice and friendly look, I like her pose, and her beautiful face, Old age and dignity. I'm not so fond of the strong background color, though.
christina (2040) 2005-06-08 9:47
Elegant is the correct word to describe this picture. I like everything about it- the model, the light, her skin, and the fabulous color. Well done!!!!!!!

Exquisite details of an exquisite face.

great portrait with vivid colours and natural sight.
I think I met a husband for her: what do you think? :-)
Fevzi (123) 2006-06-20 14:20
Great portrait, very sharp. She may be almost blind but you can see a life long struggle in her eyes. TFS
