:bulletblue: This is a wonderful piece~~!! Why? I'll tell you why. I honestly believe that the two portraits of greatest importance that anyone can take of are youngsters and the elderly. Youngsters because it will capture youth, and elderly in remembrance of a person that was motivated enough and had enough courage in their heart to make it all the way from their youth to then. It may be slightly biased, but it's my solid opinion.

:bulletblue: As for this photo, I love that it's in black and white. perhaps a very very pale version of it would look just as nice, but I love the black and white. Her skin is clearly of a medium complexion, which make the wrinkles and lighting stand out sooooo much more, enhancing the title "Old Age".

:bulletblue: Her expression and the model herself is a great one at that, even if it was a spontaneous shot, it still portrays a message to me at least.) Perhaps I'm reading too much into it like others but that's alight! xD) her expression is a solid one, eye contact and determination in that stare. Solid eyes staring straight at you as though standing ground, saying, "Yes, I'm still here. After all these years. I have survived. And I am still here." Shows the maturity of it all.

:bulletblue: Overall, I enjoyed this piece, and had I not, I wouldn't have snuck down to the critique button as I'm falling asleep hahaha~

:bulletblue: Very well done. I congratulate you on this piece. : ) :heart:

Hi,
I am really drawn to this image and think it is fantastic. I wondered if you would mind me using it for a painting. I have liked your facebook page and am more than happy to do any more likes if you would like me to.

Old age is a beautiful thing. I know it does not feel very good to get old, but your picture is exqusite. I just posted one called Young Husbands and i believe it tells the whole story in one snapshot. Thanks again and your site is awesome!

Doh!!! Somebody already beat me in requesting permission to draw this excellent photo.

No matter. I love the expression on her weathered face and all the information held within. Totally unimpressed as she has seen it all before.

Well, ya know, I might just do that. Thanks

I have a fair amount of work in the pipeline but I'll definitely add this to my list.

Obviously when I do, I'll make sure everyone knows that you were the photographer with a link to your page and everything.

Thanks again :D
