Hello Joël,
An image out of the ordinary from your gallery. The lighting is very well controlled and the detail in the costume beautifully rendered. I find the light area on the left a little distracting; cropping this would also strengthen the composition in my opinion, placing the subject slightly off centre.

Bonjour Joel

Il y a quelque chose de très réel dans ce visage. Il n'est pas parfait ni magnifié par l'artiste. Le regard que l'on percoit dans le reflet semble triste et songeur.

Amicalement

Serge

Bonsoir Joël,

Magnifique vue intérieure qui illsutre ta capacité à diversifier avec talent ta production photographique. Excellente gestion de la lumière qui met en valeur le sujet et.... son très beau reflet. La percée de lumière sur la gauche apporte un plus à l'équilibre de l'image.
Amitiés,
Roger

Hello Joel - What a wonderfully simple but beautiful image. Excellent light management gives very good balance to the shot. The reflections are well defined and the POV almost perfect (the nose has been interrupted by the case edge). Lovely. Best regards Rosemary

Dobro vece.
Odlican tekst.
Vrlo interesantna i lep prikaz, biste sa svetlom koje je naglasilo lepotu i istaklo detalje.
Lepa fotografija sa refleksom na zastitnom staklu, moje cestitke na dobrom radu sa fotografijom u radionici.
Prijatno vece.
Kod nas pada sneg.
Paja.

Bonne soirée.
Excellent texte.
Très intéressant et très belle vue, à la lumière qui souligne la beauté et les détails mis en évidence.
De belles photos à partir des ports sur la vitre de protection, mes félicitations pour le bon travail avec la photographie dans l'atelier.
Agréable soirée.
Avec nous, il neige.
Paja.

Joël
Image de bonne qualité capturée dans des conditions pas faciles. J'aime bien comme tu as su utiliser le reflet du buste pour créer le "fantôme" de la dame.

Bonsoir,

Très interessante photo qui nous dévoile les deux faces de ce buste. Très belle realisation dans ce cube de verre.
Très bonne fin de journée,
Thierry

Buonasera Joel
sono più attratta dal riflesso che dalla statua di questa giovane. Nel riflesso il viso appare non solo completo, ma con una espressione di malinconia che non sembra avere nel viso visto di profilo. sul vetro appare più vera, eppure è un riflesso di una statua. le decorazioni del vestito e del copricapo invece danno il meglio di sé per merito del focus e della nitidezza, tue. :-) bravo lo scultore e bravo tu.
buona serata e grazie per questa nuova foto Joel.
amicalement
Simonetta

Bonsoir, Joël,
c'est une photo peu habituelle dans ta galerie, mais elle est très attractive.
Ce n'était pas une prise facile, dû à la basse lumière à l'intérieur de ce musée si intéressant d'objets régionaux.
Le buste avec la coiffe et le vêtement traditionnels de cette zone, et le jeu fantastique de reflets dans l'urne en cristal, ils forment une jolie composition.
Un grand contrôle de la lumière, et de jolies ombres, dans une image très bien captée.
Belle réalisation.
Amicalement,
Josep
Bon WE

Hello Joël
Splendid composition of this work of art with attractive motifs.
Very interesting and beautiful view, to the light which stressed the beauty and highlighted details.
As usual excellent and educational article.
Excellent lights and clarity,fine reflection.
When do you rate your work immediately rush to see the works in the workshop because I know that there are beautiful photos.
It's rare that a mistake.
Perfect framed image.
Really great job.
Respect

Ciao caro Joel,
guardando la tua foto , scopro che il riflesso è più attraente del originale! Sembra una inquadratura dalla TV di una persona viva… E' veramente impressionante! Un straordinario effetto olografico!
Almeno, lo vedo così io…
Come sempre è molto ben fatto!

Inoltre è accompagnato da una ottima nota storica!

Ti auguro un buon WE e a presto!

I.
