Aalten is a small dutch city in the province Gelderland.In July and August on every Thursday ,the city has a interesting programme called “Aalten Dagen” (Aalten days) to attract people to visit the city.
On this particular day one of the main attractions was a pantomime show performed by the group "Living Arts" .They come from a local Gym club and are pure amateurs and their show is really great.

Magnifique prise de vue,superbes portrait !
J'adore cette très faible profondeur de champ
Merci pour le partage

Hele mooi foto; scherp en goed van compo met de wazige achtergrond. Misschien iets minder centraal zou een nog mooier beeld geven.

Un bien joli portrait de cette jeune femme aux magnifiques yeux bleus qui vous transpercent le coeur ! ;o)
J'admire son courage pour rester immobile avec ces crèmes qui empêchent la peau de respirer.
Très belles couleurs. Très bien rendu.

Well made close up of this young artist 'at wotk'. Fine details, good cropping, well done H.

Very nice closer portrait of the attractive "golden girl", Hermann. Interesting hairdo, to say the least, and good use of the shallow DOF to set her off against the brick wall in the back. Nice soft light.

Another wonderful capture of a living statue. Very good clos-up with an excellent DoF, very well done!

Like cosmic girl.
Nice portrait and this blue eyes.
Clochette (8076) 2005-09-11 15:41
She is wonderful, and you perfectly captured the mystery in her posture and look.
Beautiful indeed, she looks like a kind of modern fairy.
A great portrait, Hermann, I love it.

The blue eyes in the golden face is the eye-catcher of this excellent portrait. The somewhat haughty expression on the face is very fascinating.
jjbach (9324) 2005-09-11 17:08
Excellent portrait of this wondeful girl. The golden make-up is fantastic. Great DOF and beautiful colour contrast. Very artist work!
KevRyan (22952) 2005-09-11 19:04
Nicely done Hermann - the blue eyes are electric in this facial colour - nice DOF too!
The central placing of the figure works well here - very nice!
best wishes Kev

Een mooi portrait met goede belichting en beperkte dieptescherpte, dit mocht je in ieder geval niet missen en zo te zien werd je aandacht beloond met een andere pose ! Mooi.
dsidwell (9783) 2005-09-11 20:58
I really enjoy the depth of field here, Hermann! The performer is isolated nicely from the background and this gives her more intensity. Of course, her color is a bit engaging, too!
PJE (20758) 2005-09-11 22:54
Wow what an expression in stillness. She is a very good actor and artist withher expression. Thanks for bringing us closer to her espression here.

This face is beautiful and the light to the golden make up is great, the main element of eyes is well positionned
I like this portrait
jhm (137652) 2005-09-12 8:08
Het model hier op de foto heeft zich zeer mooi geposisioneerd, de fotograaf heeft er een prachtige foto van gemaakt, the versieringen op het hoofd komen goed in de foto over, mooi gedaan Hermann.
bedankt voor uw bezoek!

Fantastic portrait, the make up of the woman is very nice and has a good effect with the dark background.
hdl (6995) 2005-09-12 10:14
She looks very nice. I like the expression on her face and the contrast between her blue eyes and the gold paint. They could have chosen a better background that the brick wall, but you bring it very good. Good focus, sharpness and colours.
weswang (18223) 2005-09-12 10:45
Hi Hermann, nice portrait of the living art. You have well made use of the day light to highlight the girl with a statues looking. Nice use of shallow DoF. An excellent shot.
maphoto (8082) 2005-09-12 22:14
Very nice result Hermann, wonderful portrait, her look is simply incredible, working great with the gold, excellent DOF and well presented, bravo.
dolin (15647) 2005-09-13 8:30
Waouhhhh the glance is impressive....I LIKE THIS !
Excellent attitude and the blue on the eyes give a nice touch.
A perfect dof and an excellent quality and sharpness on this woman.
Good gold colors.
The full center is very interesting in this compo....good idea.
Jeppe (18654) 2005-09-13 15:27
A very excellent portrait of this artist/model - I like the DOF and the eyes as contrast to the golden skin - thanks Hermann and congratulation.

mumek (20198) 2005-09-22 19:22
Good evening Hermann!
Beautiful portrait of the charming girl. Very good depth of the field, nice contrast between a girl and the wall. Super shot.
drymd29 (448) 2005-09-23 15:57
Nice frontal portret view. The use of Schmink makes the skin smooth as if you have uesed some noisereduction on it.
Nice set in that blurred background Hermann.
You did not use the 1/3 -rule because of the headornaments, I think.
