Ce portrait est superbe, belle netteté et bonne lumière; beaux détails sur le violon avec la main.
J'aime bien aussi le flou en arrière plan.

un portrait pris en toute simplicité et qui est superbe par cette lumiére qui éclaire le violon, un travail toujours aussi soigné, bravo
devimeuxbe (58557) 2009-08-04 12:48
beaucoup de relief et de netteté pour ce portrait très spontanée. C'est une belle réussite
pierrefonds (48387) 2009-08-04 13:01
A good capture of the action of the artist playing the violon. The portrait is showing the details and colors of the woman and of her violon. The subject is well framed. A good management of the light which is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.
bukitgolfb301 (30111) 2009-08-04 13:41
Hello my dear John
Unique portrait not from front side !
Complete framework, comfortable color and nice composition as usual. the usage of semi-long focus lens is effective.
Her expression is so natural and cute (maybe)
Congratulation on your good job !
Thanks for sharing and best regards,
Have a good day !

Magnificent portrait of a violinist. Beautiful composition on this square that looks very lively. Excellent light and detail.
hispic (9619) 2009-08-04 20:06
Colour of the violinist has been beautifully rendered though a below part of the root of her ponytail looks just bright.
Best wishes, Hisashi
Amaz (11475) 2009-08-05 1:03
very impressive capture, here!!!
Perfect focussed shot!!
josepmarin (55063) 2009-08-05 2:37
a great portrait here. The image is very clean and with a perfect depth of field to catch all the details of this young girl playing her violin in the street, under a splendid light.
A beautiful composition, spontaneous and full of life.
rodgerg (55767) 2009-08-05 3:30
Un excellent portrait avec l'attitude de la jeune musicienne très bien captée. Très bon cadrage et format d'image idéal. Les belles demeures brugeoises font un bel arrière-fond.
Gerrit (43743) 2009-08-05 3:34
mooi actie portret van een mooie dame.
Uitstekende lichtbehandeling en een zeer adequate uitsnede.
jplebrun (21208) 2009-08-05 4:22
belle présentation de la dame avec son violon qui devait vous faire un superbe concert.
snunney (67430) 2009-08-05 4:37
A great close-up of this young and very attractive violinist. Depth of field is perfect to lift her from the background but still give us a flavour for the audience and the architecture behind. Fine lighting with superb colours and clarity where needed.
xuaxo (6830) 2009-08-05 5:51
An excellent portrait of the artist; perhaps a little bit too tight.
I like very much violin.
jmdias (45830) 2009-08-05 7:46
excellent portrait, the model is nicely shown and light, framing and sharpness are perfect.
saxo042 (31802) 2009-08-05 10:03
There is clearly music in this picture, a well performed composition, with good harmonies!
gunbud (34052) 2009-08-05 17:09
You did an excellent job of capture the lovely young musicians concentration and love of her insturment.
The light here is splendid with a compelling shine to the wooden violin.
Love the muted backdrop of tourist and lovely architecture.
vmf-214 (1648) 2009-08-05 19:32
Excellent clarity in this close up of the lady violin player, Well framed and nice lighting along with sharpness. Well done John.
Clementi (52511) 2009-08-05 23:47
the street artists have always fascinated me, portraits so well still more.
pauloog (11735) 2009-08-05 23:47
Een mooi portret met zachte schaduwtinten op het gelaat en een mooi spel van licht en schaduw op de viool.
danyy (0) 2009-08-05 23:57
ces musiciens de rue donnent souvent de la gaieté lorsqu'on se promène, même si les rues sont fort fréquentées et un peu bryuantes, on aime entendre de la bonne musique.
Un portrait bien 'calculé', avec un certain détachement grâce à une DOF plus faible.
Les couleurs et les lumières sont parfaites.
ahmetgedikli (25064) 2009-08-06 0:10
Wonderful portrait shot! The POV, DOF and light are superb. Excellent work! Thank for sharing.
Have a good day.
danos (74064) 2009-08-06 0:14

jafadabret (56497) 2009-08-06 23:09
Ce portrait est remarquable. J'aime la lumière et les couleurs. L'animation de la place fait un fond vivant.
mkamionka (24583) 2009-08-07 2:31
very well done portrait with great architecture as a background. The depth of the field is good enough to get the touristic atmosphere of the place but at the same time it leaves the main focus on the girl.
vasilpro (40194) 2009-08-07 3:31
Excellent portrait of this lovely musician, I almost hear the music.
Have a good day, Vasilis.
jlbrthnn (79773) 2009-08-07 7:52
Cheer! It is a realization in the code of practice of a superb portrait of an young girl not less pretty. The image is clear and precise. the light and the colors are excellent. congratulations.

pablominto (53744) 2009-08-07 21:38
This is a fine portrait and a bit off your regular path..!
But I guess a good photographer can handle everything hehehe...
You capture her expression well, I can read in her face she is devoted to her art..!
mikolaj_kawa (0) 2009-08-08 1:29

Giedra70 (961) 2009-08-08 22:33
well composed shot.
Deep colours make this picture more impressive.
MarcT (20946) 2009-08-08 23:04
Joli portrait de l'instrument et de sa violoniste.
Le lumière est belle mais tu as coupé le bout du violon ;o)
Didi (48938) 2009-08-09 3:45
Cette ravissante musicienne n'a pas le type Mexicain.
Mais l'action est parfaitement cadrée avec une très bonne mise au point sélective.
Amitiés et bon dimanche.
delkoo (68) 2009-08-09 6:31
great street shot, taken with expertise, Canon EF 85mm f1.2L is a killer.....
Light management, contrast, color and definition are simply superb, TFS!
alftrek (3270) 2009-08-09 7:37
I think this is an excellent photos for the following reasons:
-harsh light well controlled with optimum exposure
-her pose is good
-the background is just sufficiently out of focus to provide the context.
Waylim (22357) 2009-08-09 13:57
It is a beautiful capture of the young violinist. Lovely compositon and good sharpness and clarity overall, great light and beautiful color and tone. Very nice moment. I feel like being there myself.
Bluejeans (64239) 2009-08-10 5:30
Ola John ,
Que belo retracto desta moça a tocar violino , as cores e os detalhes ficaram muito bons , a luz esta magnifica , gostei do espaça ocupado pela moça na foto , parabéns!!
Um abraço Gonçalo
adramad (27556) 2009-08-10 15:07
The portrait is haughty, with a great clarity and detail, equally it has a great quality to be able to estimate every detail of the model and the violin, beautiful also the frame. A good work.
AiresSantos (56155) 2009-08-10 23:32
Great portrait of the Mexican violin player, a gorgeous girl !
Amazing colours as usual from you. Excellent details and low DOF
TFS and have a nice day
thaprem (2554) 2009-08-11 5:48
mm...One more portrait & the sentiment is amazing. As ever your subject is beautifully articulated even here!
jwmunro (286) 2009-08-11 14:14
Hello John -
Excellent environmental portrait! Well done!
Thank you for sharing.
skippy007 (12500) 2009-08-11 18:00
Hello John, Beautiful young lady and very captured, colour,detail & light are just delightful. BG is blurred but we can see her surroundings, we know exactly where she is and her environment. Well done. I always ask for their email address so I can send them a photo. I am sure she would love and appreciate a copy of this one.
Angshu (51174) 2009-08-11 22:28
A very nice portrait of the violin players with good use of DOF isolating her from the BG. Crisp & sharp with good natural skin tones...perhaps a closer crop of the left? But a fine portrait shot for sure!
Dyerco (10185) 2009-08-12 7:24
You have captured nice light on her face and a very natural look as she is playing. The BG is sufficiently out of focus to make her stand out from the crowd.
lctan (1061) 2009-08-13 14:20
This is a very good portrait shot of this girl. At F10 and yet the shallow focus of this photo is great! The colours and sharpness of the main subject is superb! tfs
hdl (6995) 2009-08-16 11:18
Da's precies al van een tijdje geleden? Een mooie foto die je ons echt niet zo lang had moeten onthouden...
alvaraalto (5473) 2009-08-16 11:21
Je portretten uit het dagelijks leven zijn steeds weer een verrassende en aantrekkelijke afwisseling in je altijd weer fraaie weergave van het Vlaamse land.
Helaas kan ik je niet helpen met de naam van deze mooie Mexicaanse violiste.
yedirenk (11242) 2009-08-18 4:14
very lovely and joyful daily life scene.a superb portrait with beautiful and innocent face.very impressive and eye catcher sharpness in foreground.a wonderful moment...excellent framing.TFS
tedesse (22134) 2009-08-21 13:55
Violinist's beautiful portrait.
Super colours and sharpness,beauty depth.
Have a nice weekend
jusninasirun (17142) 2009-08-22 3:52
This is such a nice shot John. The light and the cheerfulness in her face playing that violin is so well captured. Beautiful framing and very well done indeed.
Have a great weekend,
emilbo (20872) 2009-08-23 6:40
Le bel éclairage et la qualité d'image mettent bien en valeur cette violoniste et son violon pour en faire une merveilleuse photo. Belle présentation sur un fond flou et excellent rendu des couleurs. J'aime beaucoup.
Félicitations!... et bonne semaine,
Urs (11872) 2009-08-26 4:25
A violin player really is something different. Crisp and sharp shot, you almost hear her play. Perfect color hues, fine sharpness and due to the aperture perfect DOF. Well done
Greg1949 (9011) 2009-09-08 4:30
John, the subjects of your gallery are as varied as any I have ever seen. The shot is great and the lighting is stand out, the skin tones are not lost across several different shadows and and the boke to put distance between the violin and the bg is great bit I live the string that stands out in the dark trousers, great stuff.
Longroute (19390) 2009-09-20 8:35
I had not seen this photo before... and it's a so lovely portrait full of light, life ad colour. Excellent clarity and light management and I like how the lady stands out from the background. This and the perfect framing makes the image really artistic.
subhendu_bagchi (16590) 2009-09-23 3:38
you have captured here a nice portrait of the girl playing violin. Great depth. Nice attitude of her seems so casual. Colours are great. A great job. Tfs.
Have a nice day.
belido (19934) 2009-10-06 4:34
such a lovely portrait of the mexican musician. Very good framing, depth and super natural colors. I like a lot her happy epxression. I'm sure you enjoyed the musical moment. Great job!
fritzi007 (7580) 2009-11-26 7:42
Nettes, süsses Mädchen, sieht gar nicht nach einer Mexikanerin aus.
Das Foto ist dir prächtig gelungen!
pajaran (36282) 2010-01-03 0:53
Dobar dan, kod nas je osvanuo sa snegom.
Umetnost nema granice, pravi trenutak, dobra ostrina na motivu, mnogo lepa fotografija, odradjeno majstorski.
Prijatan dan, stvarajmo, Paja.
riclopes (35567) 2010-06-28 3:33
Olá John, I'm still looking for the portraits of people in your gallery :) This close approach to the mexican player with a sweet smile is wonderful. Splendid light and details, very nice bokeh. Love the sun shinning in her hair.
kordinator (13411) 2010-07-18 22:41
A beautiful portrait of a girl with a violin.
