An image with a fascinating mood to it. Well composed and with good control over the difficult lighting. Technical quality is more than acceptable.

The mood in this photo is wonderful. The candlelight just manages to show us the lovely smile on this woman's face. I like the black background and the flickering lights. I wish you a happy holiday. :-)

Bonne fête des lumières! Tu la célèbres de belle façon en jouant avec la lumière des bougies qui éclaire délicatement le visage de la femme.

A mystic atmosphere well caught with the candlelights illunimating this seated woman, a warm mood emphasis by the black background. Looks as a painting of the Dutch painters.
I don't understand why you are not fully satisfied by this shot, I am!

this is a charming and magical picture, so suggestive and atmospheric and I think the quality is superb. You've captured the flames and their reflections with a very attractive and pleasant intensity, around them the light graduates softly and then fades into the dark ambience. The lady has a comprehensible, serene attitude that is influenced by the ambience and influences the mood of the picture in its turn. Exceptional work, congratulations and thank you!
All the best, Happy Diwali,

Lovely warm light, and an equally warm expression. You found the right exposure, and the pure blackened backdrop adds to the impact of this shot.

It's a beautiful shot and I'm glad you posted it. The woman looks happy in front of the candles. I like her peaceful smile and the way she is enlighted by the candles. In such conditions, you managed light very well and I like the composition also.

I prefer the mood to the technical quality (even if I think that the level of quality of this one is good considering the shutter speed). I really like the intimist atmosphere, the warm tones given by the little candles and this woman with a sweet look.
Great job !
