My baby sister says this photo is "not cool at all!" but I happen to think it's very striking. Amazing what you can understand about a person (or what you can make up, anyway) from just a still image of their face.
Nothing is more striking and exquisite than a beautiful redhead, and this one is just gorgeous. Beautiful mouth and eyes, and as for that hair! I just hope she's careful in the sun with her fragile skin….
I wanna be red so badly! Coincidentally, I was talking to my mom earlier. We both agreed that only few really can pull of red, this girl is definitely among them, and those that pull it off do so romantically.
Many people are commenting on her nose ring and how it does not suit her. However i believe it adds to her character, it gives her romantic look a little bit of a rawness to it; making a beautiful contrast.
Spectacular. It's not just the beauty of your subjects – although that's irrefutable – but the artistry of your shots that create this kind of magic. You're a true artist – this portrait is absolutely amazing.
I found it interesting that on first glance, I didn't find her particularly beautiful, but the more I look at the photo, the lovelier she becomes. She may not be the most gorgeous girl in the world, but she has the kind of face that makes you want to look at it. Her eyes look like they hide a most fascinating story. She's wide-eyed and full-lipped, but the nose ring keeps her from looking too classically innocent. Well done, Scott.
Love this face – those eyes! She reminds me more than a little of Amy Winehouse (without the extreme kohl batwings!) – she's angelic but she looks like trouble, too. The nose ring is her way of expressing that. I can't imagine her regretting her piercing. I had one too – liked it for a while, then went off it, took it out… and it hasn't left a mark.
The word "culture" is used in such a generic way now that it refers to any group you care to mention, rather than its original meaning that concerned itself with what was the most excellent in the arts and scholarly pursuits.
When some of us say "civilized" we mean western civilization: the one that produced the quattrocento among other marvels.
I think the reference to "innocence" is mistaken. Much that is considered "innocent" in the past is actually just civilized.
Sadly, we are no longer what we were, and the nose ring captures that.
Whats with the critisism of her mascara and nose ring and un naturalness of her hair colour? I have the same type of eyelashes and one lick of mascara and I end up with the same look-I certainly dont spend 15 mins on them and get endless comments on them all day long!She prob works in a cafe over the road so maybe shes not wearing mascara to the beach to swim and if she is so what?There are some very closed minded commenters here. BTW she looks stunning in her originality. GO GIRL!
love your work, but this is the picture,beside few others that i like best,and after giving it some tought,I figured out why.
she is so feminine and beautiful and pale and fragile with that red hair and red headband, but what makes it really special to me is the nose ring. I LOVE it cause it such a a perfect dose of punk and “i dont give a damn” attitude, making it impossible to put her in a box,merely on her appearances (something we all do)
