Taken last night around 7:00 p.m.
I've had this idea for a long time to make a modern photographic book of Arthurian tales; who knows, maybe I'll get started on it this summer...
Post-processing: Shot with the Canon EOS 5D and the Canon 85mm f/1.2L lens at f/3.5, 1/60s, ISO 800. Curves, color balancing.
Thank you for visiting Durham Township!
She's such a beautiful girl. She has a very classic look. This is a beautiful portrait.
Sounds like a great project. If anyone can do it, you certainly can.
Lovely, she could easily be a lady in waiting. Just lovely.
I have seen the young king Arthur. He works at the Milford Pet store of a Sunday afternoon.
wow, outstanding feeling and colors!
Her wavy hair, pale but clear skin tone, and simple beauty do a great job of giving a legendary, medieval British feel to the image.
Lancelot ... Arthur? Arthur ... Lancelot? Yep, it's a tough one. Heh. Beautiful tones, great expression. Nicely done.
This one has surely a lot to do with the Arthurian tales. However, when I saw the photo, I thought, of some Gone With the Wind 2007 Project. Who said that Vivien Leigh was irreplaceable ;)
I really love the color treatment you've been giving these portraits. Perfect.
I love the idea for a book and think you're just the person for it!
It's about deciding. Options. Judgment. Intelligence. Becoming human. Becoming responsible. First chance for the girl to grow into the woman.
addendum. Uses the horizontal format as meaning: the shape = time: the past at the right, the future closed off at left, hidden until she decides. Her body will move forward (the negative spaces tell us that). The future is blocked; she looks not forward but within, for the choice is there.
First impression--very European! Guinevere has exceptional features (not to mention "beautiful"!) The image reminds me of one of the French painters who did a number of idyllic peasant girl portraits. Bougeroue?
And your skill for getting expressions is simply astonishing. Really Kathleen, how many shots did you pick from?
Once again your compositional thinking is the best........and as for a book project, can't we have a "2,536 of My All Time Favorite Images" kind of thing form you? you could start taking pre-orders tomorrow.....or latter today is fine.
Thank you, Guinevere. Thank you, Kathleen. And a Pre-thanks to the publisher cause any photography book you choose to do, I'm buying!
I told you that you should make a book ;) Beautiful portrait, the depth created by that lens is fantastic.
Beautiful natural light portrait.
Impressing depth of field! Very beautiful!
I love the non-traditional framing, the soft colors and purposeful use of shallow DOF here. You have some amazing and beautiful photos on your blog. Very inspiring...thanks!
what a beautiful photo of such a BEAUTIFUL girl!
i love this photo!
This is one of the best portraits I've ever seen on the Internet. Very compelling.
her beauty,,,says every thing inthis world...is just under the shines of her legend...purity..of nature....tranformed ..into ..a beauty personified
You are one of the most talented photographers I've seen on the web. Many are Photo Shop workers. You are a photographer. I want to move to Durham County.
