k@ from Paris, France

I stay stuck (again !) on my chair by the pure light that it is yours !
No ISO in your EXIF, may I ask which you select to have such sharpness in all your portrait ? Or do you work with a tripod ? Or another secret ? ;)
BRAVO - the light, details on the wise face, and reflections over the glasses are pure happiness !

Cool tones. At first I didn't care for the glare in the model's glasses, but then realized that it seems to add a bit of drama and forces the eye to take in the texture of the face, the lines of ethnicity. Nice.

Morgan Rich Photography from Gainesville, United States

I love that the glare does not show the eyes, usually the most revealing part of a portrait. Your lighting lets the face tell her story. Stunning.

Ilona from Freiburg, Germany

Very impressive portrait! In particular the semidarkness and the reflections.

Sunil from India

This is truly amazing. I have 2 thoughts on the glare on the glass. In this one glare avoids the concentration on the eyes and forces us to see the face itself and to make a story. But if the glare was avoided then the eyes might have bring more life to this picture. Again just a though.

Anyway a special salute for this one. Good job. Keep the spirit
