The way you have used the necklace really adds punch to hte composition - excellent
Ada Emihe: Thank you so much Paul....grin I am beaming!
ok gonna be tough on you today mon ami

though i like the overall composition,
can't really make out your intended center of interest

i'd've thought it was the beads based on your lighting, but i can't be sure based on your focusing
Ada Emihe: hehe,....actually that's the whole problem Doc. I took this shot like ages ago. Truth is I have no focus really....it's merely a photograph that I expect would appeal to all of you in any way possible. When you look at it what do you see? To me..it looks mysterious and like something that's about to reveal itself. I live for confusion! it's fun!!!

I love this. To me the focus is on the hands and beads, which offers in my mind, two possibilities.

Firstly the sensual possibility, teasing with the beads as a come on to her man. Secondly a slight anger, rebellion, perhaps she is about to remove or break the beads as a sign of anger or protest directed towards the man/woman who bought them for her.

I like the lighting, making facets of her face visible
Ada Emihe: Glad you love Floog....Love, love your interpretation of it. Thumbs up for you buddy!!!

Good photograph and like the light on the necklace, but it looks like she has moved which is a shame.

Strong image. Love the tones
I like the lighting on the necklace
The tones on this are great but i'm unsure of what to look out for in the image. The beautiful model or the necklace? The face isn't fully in focus, neither is the important part of the necklace. What was your aim if i may ask?
Having just read the comments above me i see someone has mentioned something similar already but do you still have anything else to add for me? smile
Ada Emihe: lol.....Adebayo thank you so much for making a comment grin. What's your take on the picture bayo? Why does every picture have to have a focus? (If you notice I am soooooooo dodging this question, have nothing else to add! lol...totally clueless!!!!.) I have issues, don't mind me.
Ada Emihe: Thank you so much Rafael....Your blog is amazing.

oh gosh, I missed this one. Something tells me that a self-portrait.
I don't mind everything you did here, actually I like it a lot, but this little piece of cloth in the left corner bugs me quite a bit. smile

You are really getting innovative, Ada! I love this mood...and especially the white pearls/beads to make it 'pop.'
Very good lighting Ada. The sheen on the hair, the glowing pearls...
Ada Emihe: Thank you much Albert grin

Hi Ada. Nice portrait here. There's a lot to look at - I love the way there are several points of sharp focus in different parts of the image (the right hand, left side of the neck, the hair etc). It conjures up a journey around the portrait, which is fascinating.
Ada Emihe: Thank you so much Harv..sorry for the late reply. smile

Good afternoon. This world is given as the prize for the men in earnest; and that which is true of this world, is truer still of the world to come.
I am from Norway and too bad know English, give true I wrote the following sentence: "The day, marillion, could even submit flags for a peculiar stop from their boo-yah fund so they followed to the mschif, recommended stock picks."

8-) Thanks in advance. LaValle.
