10.52 - Fragile. by dragonfly-oli 10.52 - Fragile. by dragonfly-oli
I did never think that I like a picture of myself.
This selfie will be my 'this-week's., because I feel like I will have no time left.
Today all the bus drivers made up a strike and that's why I had school free! :la:
My mum was also at home, so we took pictures of each other.
She took that picture after I told her how to. :aww:



See the whole project here!

Wow, this is my first critique, but I will try my best..

First of all, this picture pierced itself into my eyes the moment I saw it on my dA watch-list. And not without reason. It is a stunning piece of a stunning individual. At first sight, you might see a relatively normal picture of a good looking girl. But there is something about her that draws you in.

I feel that she is asking us to talk to her, and to help her. She is not lost, but she feel that something is still missing and if she can just reach out with her eyes; just make us sit down and talk. And if we try, she will only slip away, because then the moment will be over, and she will be onto other things..
At least that's what I feel when I see this picture.

Moving onto the piece itself, it is a great capture. She is placed well, in the golden ratio, and her eyes and and face are creating beautiful lines throughout the picture, soothing the soul. (Mine at least)

The focus is perfectly set, which is once again making this beautiful woman stand out.

All in all, a magnificent piece of art, and a self-portrait to be damn proud of!

Gehört für mich zur Kategorie (wenn man von Kategorien sprechen mag) der perfekten Porträts - einfach deswegen, weil hier nichts, rein gar nichts dazwischen ist zwischen dir und der Kamera: Du kommst einem zum Greifen nahe, und ich habe den Eindruck, das hier bist wirklich unverfälscht du.
Und oh ja, ich liebe deinen Blick, die leicht geöffneten Lippen, die Art, wie du dich wie eine Blume zur Sonne hin öffnest und möglicherweise tatsächlich fragile bist, aber eben doch so stark, doch so unverwundbar und auf jeden Fall so unwiderstehlich in einer Attraktivität, die von Beginn an ganz tief in dir angelegt ist. So sehen Mädchen aus, in die man sich unsterblich verlieben muss.

This is a lovely picture of you. It grabs the attention right away but does not jar the viewer at all. The subdued nature of your expression allows us to take in your copious and multifaceted beauty more effortlessly. The white shirt and simple background are perfect, no distractions from what is on display here, your beauty, both from within and beyond.

Wow you have a wonderful skin. This sharp image lets you explore the beauty of it. Maybe you should try one shot from front with a relaxed expression that would be awesome and let you see more but you know better..

Hehe meine Mama muss auch immer Fotografin spielen, wenn mir die Kamera zu schwer wird bei Selbstportraits xD
Mittlerweile weigert sie sich, weil sie "mit den ganzen Einstellungen einfach nicht klar kommt". :D

:icondragonfly-oli:
dragonfly-oli Featured By Owner Apr 13, 2012  Hobbyist Photographer
Ich hätte ja ein Stativ benutzen können, aber bei mir ist der Schärfebereich so gering, dass meine Augen nie im Fokus wären :D
Deswegen macht Mama das.
Nach einigem Erklären geht das mit den Einstellungen aber ;)
