Dave Donaldson, 27.01.2007 at 20:54h

Eddie Maguire, 12.03.2007 at 20:30h

Simple, beautiful, sensual, intimate and tasteful. Outstanding, understated photography.

Celal Tayar, 12.03.2007 at 20:30h

nice one...

would like see this image with some motion.
i guess it would be much better.

in that case how it is. ...i am missing something


Michael Henderson, 12.03.2007 at 20:30h

I like it. Gallery I don't know? but I do like it.

Laki K., 12.03.2007 at 20:30h

i like it, pro

Jorge Pérez Carsí, 12.03.2007 at 20:30h

I like it, but.....not for Gallery


Alexandra Baltog, 12.03.2007 at 20:30h

A picture with a story... The beautiful girl is opening the wine bottle for her lover who is waiting in their bed...or...she is feeling lonely and...or... A beautiful picture with sensual and emotional meanings...


Daren Borzynski, 12.03.2007 at 20:30h


Thomas McAlexander, 12.03.2007 at 20:30h

A little too understated for my taste.

Geoff in Germany, 12.03.2007 at 20:30h

only thing i don´t like is the grain

Patrick Parenteau, 12.03.2007 at 20:30h

Robust, full bodied, complex and goes down smooth...
The girl is tastey too... I like the image but the light is not intimate enough for the mood. contra

Claude Coeudevez, 12.03.2007 at 20:30h

good choice Eddie !

Inez Soares, 12.03.2007 at 20:30h

Same as Patrick.
The light is not used very well.

Brian Seitz, 12.03.2007 at 20:31h

I am sorry this image doesn't seem that strong to me. Some of the whites seem to hot and there does not seem to be enough range in the darker areas. The overall is nice because of the story (who doesn't like to see their girl wearing your shirt and nothing else) but I wouldn't think of hanging it on a wall or in a book. Sorry

Jaime Crystal Maksoud, 12.03.2007 at 20:31h

great work, wonderful atmosphere, sexy classy shot, love how her face is hidden by that hair

Laki K., 12.03.2007 at 20:31h

brian, i owuld strongly recommend that you calibrate your displays before you judge photos.

and for the light, sarah, what is there to question? its soft and gentle, so wheres the problem?

understated? what do you want to tell us mr. mcalexander? while i look through your comments and votes, i really wonder and must admit that you must be some kind of art-genius or so, usually you vote in 2 minutes on 2 photos, so you are damn fast in realizing what a photo shows and expresses.

celal, yes what are you missing? tits? an naked arse? cmon man. you miss the point of this photo and nothing else.

people, i m getting really annoyed by reading some comments here. you should take longer than one minute to review a photo and sometimes if you just feel to search for wrong stuff, its better to skip and not post anything rather than what you produce here in your comments! some of you became very bigheaded and i dont understandf for what reason. and yes, for sure everyon is entitled to have an opinion, but maybe you should consider to open your eyes and mind a bit further!

Laki K., 12.03.2007 at 20:31h

awww sarah, so my postings are irrelevant squabbles? lmfao, i would suggest that you have a look into the mirror and btw, there is a huge difference betweem calibrated and biased eyes, though i doubt that you will understand that. as for me this useless discussion is over,

p.s. nice move to remove your comments sarah! next time think before you type, so you wont have to remove them.

Jim McKinniss, 12.03.2007 at 20:31h

The light and tonal values are very good on this image.

However, the image itself is rather uninspiring. There are several distracting background objects and some are arranged so that they create strong contrasts which only adds to the distractions.

I think this is a nice image but not gallery quality.


Sarah Kiefer, 12.03.2007 at 20:31h

laki, back at'cha sweets...see you've done some editing yourself. peace.

Laki K., 12.03.2007 at 20:31h

@sarah, i didnt remove my posts, i added something, thats quite a difference. you removed yours so mine lost its reference, thats really cool to remove replies and let answers stay out of context, nice style.

my sweets? lmao, i didnt start the "sweet" talk but you removed your sweets cause of your great style, knowledge, big brave heart etc. i'm really impressed.

Paul Grimshaw, 12.03.2007 at 20:31h

It doesn't come across as an intimate shot to me .. possibly because of the background. Exposure seems fine .. the detail is held well in the white shirt. But an uninspiring C .. Regards, Paul.

Sarah Kiefer, 12.03.2007 at 20:31h

a 'common wavelength' then. a wonderful thing indeed...even if....

Catia Malagoli, 12.03.2007 at 20:31h



Eddie Maguire, 12.03.2007 at 20:45h

I'm sorry this image didn't make it to the gallery. What is more sensual than sharing a bottle of wine and making love in the middle of the day.. intimate because it is so casual, tasteful because it hints rather than exhibits and understated bacause it says SO much without drama and it does it simply. I think this would be an excellent exhibition photograph and I'd definately want a copy hanging on my wall.

Rather than the comparisons many people use to judge a 'gallery image' (the 'would I like to see this on my wall' school of thought) I try to use the bar that world renound photographers set and the images they publish. This would not look out of place in their company.

Shame but Botond still has my congratulations on producing a very fine photograph and for a magnificent series of photographs.


Alexandra Baltog, 14.03.2007 at 20:05h

this is the day for looking about my fav. pics... I am very sad because this picture didn't win... To win... a very precious word... To win..what...? It is and remains one of my fav. pics!

Sarah D. Kiefer , 18.03.2007 at 12:27h

my apologies for all the irrelevant drama that occurred UNDER the image. indeed i like this and was merely taking time to consider something constructive regarding the lighting. ex post facto, not worth much...fully understood. anyway, to each their own...
sarah k

Laki K., 20.03.2007 at 18:57h

@sarah, you always have to start again, right?

as for "irrelevant drama", if a discussion which isnt going your way is a irrelevant drama, then you're even more childish than i ever thought. and now you tell us that you were going to take your time to post soemthing constructive? so this means that before your comments were not constructive, right? so maybe you should consider to post in the future only after thinking, i think thats something i recommended to you earlier already.

if this would have meant to you so much, then why you deleted your previous comments?

and now you tell us that you like it, lmao. really make up your mind, before you didnt like the light and now? did the light change?

p.s. i guess you will delete your post again, so just for the record, here the whole quote:

A beautiful atmosphere. I like it so much. Yes, is my fav...In my opinion the protagonist is the gaze, intense and passionate. Thise photo is created for people who prefer fascination.
Congratulations, 5 stars

Lazaros Limos , 27.10.2008 at 14:36h

very nice photo!
