This photograph is essentially flawless. I love the red color palate. Its rich warmness which even tints the white wardrobe brings out her human side and passion while the softness and brightness elevates the portrait beyond the human. However, looking at it again, one starts to feel a certain detachment. What draws you in is her expression and a certain sadness. However, there is nothing else for the viewer to see and if one looks at it long enough, one notices that the face really seems to jump out and is almost floating by itself. This must have been purposeful since she seems to be sticking her neck out, depth of field is so shallow and it appears to have been shot on a 35 or 40mm lens from above eye level. This all adds up to be a little bit too much I think. Some of this is what elevates her beyond just human and it makes the picture what it is. Its just that I would have tried to keep some of her body in "focus" and really let it fall off towards the hair.
