High contrast low lighting is a difficult task requiring specialised techniques. 44 excels in its detail and aesthetic beauty. It feels as if some spirit or inner being is emerging from the darkness; the photograph captures a moment when this "escaping presence" can be seen.

Technically speaking, the photograph conveys all the benchmarks whilst adding its own darker resonance style. The red lipstick and glowing skin give the portrait a mask quality. It is a living breathing mask, but the photographer reveals the troubled spirit within.

And finally, the intimacy of her bare collar bone is one of petal like fragility. She is herself in the dark and perhaps facing the light of a beckoning future.

Artistically, this is a masterpiece. The original dark mood style is challenged only by the model herself whose ghost-like expression pushes the viewer to another dimension of intimacy and, ultimately, love.

I love this photo. And I completely agree with you about the colors. Definitely much better in color than b&w. Wish I could favorites it twice.

Stunning portrait - I would like it better if cropped tighter - right to her shoulders - Then I'd want it on my wall in at least 60cm x 60cm
