Portraits are not so often in my gallery, and while a street-carnival in Givatayim was underway in our "Purim" holiday, I spotted this girl in a Tiger/ Leopard costume stood on the entrance of a wine-store.
Needless to say, she did not see me with the camera, and that made this pic. so intriguing for me.

A nice street shot, very well spotted, but I think her dress looks more like a leopard. Tigers are usually striped :-).

a lovely and really intriguing portrait with great clarity and sense of depth. The information, patterns and colours of the setting are wonderfully arranged around the cute and maybe worried girl in costume. She is obviously waiting for a friend that will make her feel more comfortable. The blurry figures behind her enrich the composition. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,

Toute mignonne ce petit léopard, une prise toute naturel dans son expression et la position de ces mains, c'est un très joli portrait

You have captured well the wondering expression of the girl. The point of view is showing the details and colors of her costume. The good luminosity is bringing out the colors. Have a nice day.

Lovely portrait of this teenager wearing boots (despite it's not cold in Givatayim) posing in front of "you know where!", showing a make-believe leopard costume of somebody enliven by the festive spirit of Purim.
Stolen portraits show of course the best expressions!
carlo62 (52014) 2013-02-26 14:08
un bel ritratto, particolare per il vestito ed il trucco della ragazza, mi piace lo sguardo, non ha molto a che vedere con un leopardo.
jcpix (13930) 2013-02-26 16:26
Right place at the right time Ike! It's not a planned and posed shot, just plain and natural and in the moment...and that's what I like the most about this. She almost looks saddened that she's removed from the festivities and maybe even unaware that she's still wearing the make-up!? I especially like the reflection in the window, it gives a peek into what she's actually looking at on the street. Great moment captured, especially when they're not always so free and clear of everything else going on, a wonderful bit of solitude.
Sonata11 (33969) 2013-02-26 19:29
you captured her wonderfully. I like the portarit of her. Colors, sharpness are great. Beautiful work. Tfs.

you wrote you take not many portraits,but when you decide to take one the outcome is always superb.This one is great-at the one hand kind of funny because of her costume and painting and on the other hand intriguing due to her quite troubled expression.Well observed and executed scene.
Have a good day

Lovely and shapely girl disguising its beauty under Leopard costume. This reminds me of the only characters from the movie; The Island of Dr. Moreau.
Perfect portrait made in very good quality and composition.
trevormoffiet (3112) 2013-02-27 2:09
Great portrait of this girl with her intriguing expression. However, I find the left side a little distracting (barrel, bricks and white corner trim). You could try cropping this side to see if it makes any improvement for you.
jlbrthnn (76039) 2013-02-27 3:15
This girl wears a costume that is both simple and enjoyable. A good picture and a good quality photo. Bravo.
Have a nice day

Hello dear Ike
It's nice to see a portrait in your Gallery again. This is a beautiful candid portrait, I like how she has no idea that you are pointing your camera at her. She is very pretty and I like her kitty cat costume.
chrisvek (7001) 2013-02-28 3:39
Very good framing of this girl.Nice expression on her face and superb ligthning.Well done.

Curious costume, curious place.
Good frame and colors.
mirosu (16273) 2013-03-01 23:25
I can't remeber seeing woman photo in your gallery. I like this one, not sure if it is a candid shot or she is posing for you. Anyhow very good snapshot with all details. Have a nice weekend.
fabbs99 (17175) 2013-03-02 9:53
Nice portrait with some great expressions on her face.Fine natural colors and good composition. Very well done my friend.
adramad (47626) 2013-03-02 16:47
A very funny picture and unusual in your gallery, the girl gives a feeling like I get a little lost looking for someone, your time well spent to capture this magnificent portrait, unconventional.
Fantastic brightness and optimum sharpness.
Enjoy the weekend.

bayno (18344) 2013-03-06 4:19
Ciao Ike, i like here the compo and the tones, funny and tender girl...many element to look but not any disturb...good sharp too...
maria-v1981 (10932) 2013-03-06 6:38
This girl has a plaintive look that does not match with her leopard costume. And that is the perfect moment you succeed.
Have a nice evening,
serp2000 (45046) 2013-03-12 4:39
But I like this portrait in your gallery. Well done, simple and interesting daily life scene. Well, you could be a good paparazzi. )) TFS!
danos (100798) 2013-03-15 10:24
nie the view as the presentation of the little girl with her tiger-leopard costume standing in front of the entrance of the store.I like the light and the colour management as the clarity of the portrait.
Royaldevon (40988) 2013-04-14 2:12
The fact that the young girl is so unaware of you is what makes this special. She has that wonderful air of innocence, maybe just a little self conscious.
She is sharp and very well positioned in the frame of the surrounding shop features.
Have a lovely Sunday,
kato (11630) 2013-05-12 10:34
This in an interesting portrait, it's impressive to see a girl with comical nose and pretty clothes for street carnival. She is a bewildered expression. And, it's interesting to see the wine store of backdrop with big barrel at both side. The whole is unified well by quite colors.
jmdias (66323) 2013-06-07 2:57
the girl remind me my niece. excellent portrait with the girl preoccupied with something, what is a contrast with her costume. I liked the framing too.
fritzi007 (11501) 2014-09-13 7:08
good snapshot, with us in the carnival time, the waitresses had such a Konstüm
Wish you a nice weekend
silah (2798) 2015-01-15 13:18
You have got very good portrait from daily life. She looks serious and does her job very well. TFS my friend. GREETINGS, Salih
mcmtanyel (25584) 2016-10-15 16:05
I think I prefer that she does not look at the camera. This way, it makes a nice candid shot. I like the reflections from the store's window. I also like the Hebrew writing on the signs, it's nice to see that it's a living language and not just the language of ancient scriptures.
GiovanniG (3627) 2016-10-15 18:06
Indeed people pics aren't your style but that said this one is quit pleasing as it is candid and so well executed with a very pleasing pov. Warm regards GiovanniG.
