Maybe a bit too much noise in the photo. The noise does add an nice feel to it however.

Very beautiful image, and Mike, yes I agree with you that what you call noise does add a nice feel, but this is not noise, it's film grain.

Noise or grain, it adds to the photo. I love everything about it. Great work!

I love this photo. Great mood and I like the contrast and grain. My only complaintis that it's a little too centered for my taste. Maybe a little more space on the bottom and right would be nice. But that's a person preference. Great photo!

To me, this is your most erotic foto. It works very well in high key.

Well, we've just discussed this so you know how much I love backstage photos. There is something so much more intimate and sincere about such moments, as compared to those more formal ones that we take. Needless to say, this one is absolutely gorgeous, a classic of it's kind. It's fabulous, bravo ... and what a memorable moment.

Thank you

I am grateful for your positive comments, especially John and Jim! I'm currently finishing the renovation of a big old house in France, with a studio, so I'll be back with more next spring. Regards Lennart

I like this type of shots with very intimate feeling and ambiance. It's like moment of her true life. In a way I like these more than even the Newton shots where everything is usually so obviously staged. This one is like a documentary of what happens in her bedroom. And the best part is that this is not objectifying what tends to happen to many who try this type of shooting. Very good.
