franz from Baden, Austria

this is awesome, jason! the vivid colours and the gentle light around the edges set the lady off spectacularly against the dark background ...

@franz: thanks Franz

Adela Fonts from Barcelona, Spain

An actress ...? Her kimono does not seem like I knew the truth. I had a Japanese home in two years. Kimonos had many wonderful ... She always wore this lovely outfit for going out. For this reason I know them well!. A beautiful image Jason ... Admirable hands ...! Best regards... Adela

@Adela Fonts: you have a good eye - she is a model at a photo show at a lighting booth not too authentic and an easy snap ! (but still photogenic)

Ruthiebear from Titusville, NJ, United States

I like the light and shadow in this portrait. Her expression is intense.

Ann from Nelson, New Zealand

yes, enigmatic indeed. I love the rich colour and the mystery of her expression

5 Mar 2013 11:39pm

@Ann: she has that quizzical look down

Steve Rice from Olympia, United States

Beautiful yet strange. Somethings not quite right here.

@Steve Rice: quite right - see above

Joyce from Montana, United States

She is not a she? This is a powerful portrait in any case.

7 Mar 2013 6:36pm

@Joyce: heh - no I think she was a she - just a model who'd been standing around in front of a lighting setup for a good 20 min or so

Jeff from Honolulu, United States

The texture of the robe jumps off the page. Beautiful portrait in what looks like theater lighting.
