Hello dear friend,
I could almost recognize the passion of my little daughter in the eyes of this girl...
She is so lovely and involved in her task,I like it very much!
I like the "vignette" effect too...
Best regards from automnal Europe,

Namaskar dear Takero,
Missed a lot from your gallery. This little girl looks very confident and beautiful under the red umbrella. The colors and sharpness are superb.

Hello Takero! an incredibly intriguing portrait and image this all red. Highly original in concept and compelling in it's subject matter. A good quality of image, a great sharpness and a few managed-well colors, they make a very interesting composition.
Nice work. Well done!

Excellent capture of this young girl. I like the red tones in this photo. The composition with the red umbrella and the red dresed girl in the center is perfect. Well done. Have a great week.

This is a stunning portrait shot of this girl, and the framing could not possibly be any better. This is an iconic image, and the colours really burst out of the screen. The girl seems very proud of her important role, and this capture of that pride is very special. Thanks for sharing.

This is indeed a very eye-catching picture! The red colour is dominating but if you manage to take your eyes away, you will enjoy the shy smile of this very pretty girl. A very pleasant picture!

I should say that you are so successful at portraits! This is another lovely portrait of a nice girl. I like the way of using umbrella as a frame and placing girl in the middle of it.Good idea!
Thanks for sharing

Hello, Simply beautiful portrait of this young lady. Great colors and good composition. I think I might crop out the stuff in the bg on the left. Make it all aout the girl and the umbrella.

Wonderfully sharp, with a muted dark background making the red of this shot stand out even more! Gorgeous subject and work, Takero!

Perfect result for this portrait well managed, Good frame with the red "umbrella", nice light and colors.

Hello dear Takero,
I love the way you've framed and lit this picture to fit the wonderful shape of the parasol and to enhance the charm of the red hues and of the little girl's face and expression. The parasol has isolated the little girl from the dark tones of the blurry background and has allowed us to concentrate on her lovely and intriguing glance. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,

I missed this one. Really a beautiful portrait with this dominant and outstanding red. An excellent and perfect framing with the umbrella covering a large part of the picture. Concerning the light I like how we can see the transparency through the umbrella (sorry I'm still so bad in English)
SWEETFREEDOM (21848) 2012-12-15 5:03
