Beautiful Tracey, beautiful!
That's one vey flattering bus pass photo.
She's stunning. I love her neutral expression
An enjoyable portrait with a perfectly set DOF. Nice work.
Colour is very cool.
«Tracey, light of my life, fire of my loins. My sin, my soul. Tra-cey: the tip of the tongue taking a trip of two steps down the palate to tap, at two, on the teeth. Tra.Cey.»
Matto, there is something goin' on here I don't understand...
...you have me feeling I have become an infra-red iris scanner at some security checkpoint rather than a mere human TN.Net lurker slash commentor...
You have captured such a rich moment in time, there is so much going on here, it's baffling.
apparently neutral, she's very intense... superb pose and shot.....
Very, very good portrait. So nice.
thats a very nice portrait but i'd want to ask - why is she serious ?
Excellent portrait. Beautiful muted colors and shallow depth of field. What a gaze!
It's like a passport photo but then you can dig deep into it. The contrast between the blue and the pink is awesome.
I love the blue cast in this one, and the fact that it looks so soft. And the very cute nose. :d
The DOF and her expression together make a great photo (the nice job on lighting is too obvious to even mention).
the lighting is bad, the expression is lifeless, the environment is uninspiring. What the hell are you all oohhing about.
It's like a police mug shot, excpet the flash didn't go off.
It's strange, I just can't forget this portrait since I saw it a few days ago. Is it the bi-color light, or the subtil expression of the face or the skin texture? It looks so "real"... difficult to explain in english. Anyway thanks for sharing!
bob is awesome. i love when i get a bob comment.
Stephane: i think the reason is tracey (ellen)
there is a bob in all of us. but most of the time we can keep him locked in. for this shot, i'd let him him out for a walk.
haha zoltan, i have no idea what that means!
you hate the shot too?
it almost made me cry! beautiful!!!!
Hello, Matt. If you'll believe it, this is the photo that persuaded me to buy the then-new Canon 5D, back when it was still $3500. The decreased depth of field is so much more pleasing to me than on cropped sensor cameras. From the time I had the 5D, I began shooting with a new zeal, and in an ironic way, this photo was the launch of my business.
