"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."
~ Andre Kertesz

29 Dec 2011 2:23pm

Jason Politte from Conway, AR, United States

This scene does have a romantic feel to it - perhaps it's the luxurios coat the lady is wearing and the way these two are facing each other in this wonderfully snowy setting. A truly beautiful shot, Mariana.

Steven from Chicagoland, United States

Your B&W composition works well here as it highlights the snow to contrast with the various surfaces and fences it lays on. Looks like an ideal place for just the two of them together as well.

i doesn't need to be a portrait. i can see the expression on her face clearly; i simply cannot interpret it; maybe one could call that enigmatic

Je ne sais pas pourquoi mais cette photo me fait penser à un des premiers films de Jim Jarmusch : "Stranger than paradise". J'avais adoré ce film et je retrouve cette ambiance ici.
