What a superb portrait! The skin tones and hair colour look wonderful on my monitor, aided by the lovely diffuse lighting. In particular I think her red hair looks very striking against the wintry tones and the grey of the coat. I'm just not sure about the tree....I'm all for someone leaning on a tree, but it doesn't seem to be either in or out of the shot really- and this is my only reason for dropping down to two thumbs! Really great shot though -one for the album. Rob

This is a very pleasing image, Francesco, and I prefer it of the two posted together today. Eye contact is good, but the hair crossing her eye is only a minor problem. Color is good, her red hair is amazing, eye contact and expression are pleasant. Tree is okay. 2+ TU.

Beautiful portrait of Alice, Francesco. I like this one best over the two. Her hand placement on the other photo doesn't appear natural to me. With both photos the expression in her eyes shows a comfortable and natural gaze. The colors are beautiful - gorgeous hair - complimented with the muted background. Very nice.

Very nice portrait. Everything to me appears to work together great. The BG is subdued just enough to frame her and make her standout without jumping at the viewer. I like the tight crop on this one. She has a perfectly natural look on her face- the eyes are great and the skin tones pleasing. Some may complain about the hair in her left eye but to me that is her and this is not a glamour shot.
