Wonderful mood here!
Excellent atmosphere for this good moment, light, colurs and textures are rich and very well captured, superb definition for this scene that reminds me Vermeer´s pictures!!

Hi Kaj. I lost track of you and am glad to come across this photo of yours -maybe an indication that you will participate again. The obvious thing to say would be that the scene reminds me of the Dutch and Flemish paintings in which ordinary life and people were depicted with sensitivity and wonderful mastery of light. Very much like you have done here. Minus her glasses, she could have dropped din from centuries past.Stay well Kaj. Klaudio.

The lighting in this photograph is just superb! The light on the lady's hands, the food she is chopping (onions?), her face and her shawl is all beautiful and soft. Lovely colours and clarity too.
P.S. This is why I want a 5D MkII - for the ability to produce pictures like this at high ISO - I see that your ISO was set at 1000.

Hello Kaj - I agree with Manu, this does look something like a Vermeer. Wonderful soft colour, the window light is superb, I love the way it highlights the chopping board, bowl and jug rims. I can almost feel the soft texture of the lady's shawl. Very speacial shot but a pity you did not tell us something about the scene. Best wishes Rosemary

Pour moi aussi, la composition m'a tout de suite fait penser à un tableau de Vermeer. L'image est toute en douceur, avec une lumière douce et bien contrôlée. La scène est simple, et représente bien la vie les gestes de la vie quotidienne. Bravo.

It's an incredibly beautiful and delicate picture, reminds me of films by Andrei Tarkovsky especially because of the colours, the gentle mist and the dew on the window. You managed to capture a simple scene of cutting an onion and turn it into poetry. Magnificent!
All the best,
