The weekly theme for Thursday Challenge is
A wonderful portrait here Susu. :)
Excellent shot. She definitely looks like an intellectual!
I like the way the horizontal stripes in the background mimic and, at the same time, contradict the alternating black-and-white streaks in her hair and the vertical lines on her sweater.
Thanks, Mick. I thought this cahellenge was a hard one, because it's so obvious somehow!Doesn't she, Nancy!The original photo was also quite nice, because of the wooden ceiling and the softness of the sweater, Kenneth, I just had to soften everything a little more!
Peaceful and harmonic. This is excellent portrait, Susu.
beautiful portrait Susu, I realy love portraits. Have a nice weekend
Thank you both, Elina and Trijnie and have a nice weekend you, too!
Was it really necessary to add the blur in the right? Part of the rug is blurred but the lines in the side of the rug are not. I just thought it could have worked without that. At first glance that blur looks great but after a while I questioned the use of it.
A matter of taste, chrome3d, I like it blurred, but I can also see that it doesn't please eveybody. I wanted Kirsti's face to come out from the blur.
Certainly a very nice photo!I tried to find out something more about Kirsti E and found hundreds of sites and blogs... unfortunately not in a by me understandable language.
Finnish is the one and only language in this matter, Peter!
