"The moment always dictates in my work. What I feel, I do. This is the most important thing for me. Everybody can look, but they don't necessarily see. I never calculate or consider; I see a situation and I know that it's right, even if I have to go back to get the proper lighting."

... a provocative, seductive, and sexy shot.. the soft treatment adds extra allure. your pose, smile, the setting - all of it all adds up to a thoroughly catchy photograph .. (and kudos to you for having the confidence and Chutzpah to take and post this. :)

27 Oct 2009 2:40pm

mirela from brighton, United States

This is you, am I right? Anyway, that's not important. What's important is that you managed to create something very beautiful, gracious and soft! very nice processing, adds to the sensuality of this beautiful portrait! Kudos for having the guts to do it, Mariana!

27 Oct 2009 2:45pm

Bill Jennings from (Bay Area Northern Calif), United States

I think you've mastered the self portrait. It's consistently very high quality, and it allows you great ability to be creative. Capturing this moment was very stylish, and very well done. Love it!

27 Oct 2009 5:37pm

Richard Trim from Leicester, United Kingdom

It would be stupid to say that I didn't like this ... I think even more enigma might have been cretaed with more creative blur and darker tones ... but that's just me ;-)


27 Oct 2009 5:59pm

@Richard Trim: hmmm. that is cool idea ... Maybe next time I listen to this advice. Thx Richard !

Very nice.
I like the soft treatment.
Bonne soirée.

27 Oct 2009 9:06pm

philippe from moselle, France

je trouve le traitement un peu bizarre, les parties sombres au niveau du visage et du bas du dos ne sont pas très esthétiques, j'aurais sans doute préféré une couleur de peau beaucoup plus laiteuse et légèrement plus floue pour ce joli modèle !!!!

27 Oct 2009 9:11pm

@philippe: thx :)

R.J.Dee from Ettlingen, Germany

as you've already got so many compliments I won't add another one by using words - I 'll let music speak instead, music that tells you that you've presented a fine picture : Anouar Brahem "Le pas du chat noir"

27 Oct 2009 9:38pm

@R.J.Dee: Thx my dear friend ;)) that is so lovely from you !

28 Oct 2009 1:16am

@Papalopoctli: thx dear :)

Ajay from Pune, India

Spell bounding beauty!!! The skin seems to be so soft and so desirable. The lighting work is also so well done that the way the face is shown in dark makes the portrait mysterious.

28 Oct 2009 1:16am

Seraphine from San Francisco, United States

some like to lock doors,
and some keep them open.

28 Oct 2009 1:27am

@Seraphine: right .. somebody love to make love on a very bright light , somebody make love in a dark room :))

faisal from New York City, United States

Emilio Garcia from Pleasanton, United States

Hard to add more accolades than those already posted. Great, sensuous, delicate and beautifully done. Hope you pay no mind to the misguided comments from the fellow in Bhutan!

28 Oct 2009 4:50am

@Emilio Garcia: Thx Emillio . I know who is this woman under ULIAZ , and of course I understand her curiosity ! Pure jealousy !

Howard F. from South Pasadena, Calif., United States

Sexy, sensual with a lot of curves! I like the soft focus, can the smile but sort of blurry and playful. Very very nice. (Is this you, Mariana???)

29 Oct 2009 7:19pm

@Howard F.: thx Howard . Yes, it is me and I am proud to say so , despite all above comments from ULIAZ :))

Ghassan from Baghdad, Iraq

Hey, i liked see you naked but prefer to see you on focus Marina, and you seems wOOw

29 Oct 2009 9:31pm

@Ghassan: well, you are the only one with this kind of suggestion .. :))

Ghassan from Baghdad, Iraq

No i am sure you mean: lots of guys thought like that, but i am interesting at your character more than your photos ! and i think you are can be great model too...hope a good Friday for you.

30 Oct 2009 1:21am

@Ghassan: Well, I am interested in pictures only . About characters ???? Funny what you are saying . Have a good Friday too .

Andrew Gould from Sydney, Australia

Very subtle and mysterious looking. Body forms come through very well here, and that's the charm of it for me.

31 Oct 2009 6:08am

Albert from Hamburg, Germany

Great light and softness! All the open doors gives a somewhat surreal feeling once you notice them.

1 Nov 2009 3:17pm

@Albert: thx again :)

Twelvebit from Victoria, United States

I don't see anything vulgar either, and yet, I still like it. But it is maybe a little bit sexy. Of course, when it comes to sexy, a guy can get excited by the turn of a calf, a pair of legs, painted toenails, or just a smell of something, so I suppose sexy is in the eye of the beholder.

1 Nov 2009 9:54pm

Aurore from Paris, France

I love the door. Simple & sincere, really love it.

3 Nov 2009 8:38am

philippe from dijon, France

As Eric says, "cheeky." I like how you are able to create art with great taste. Your post processing is wonderfully done.
