Marnix is right. There is that effortless beauty of a Riefenstahl about it.

Fantastic light, Ana

Wonderful detail and sharpness, it looks like she is waiting for her Prince Chraming to wake her from her slumber with a tender kiss.

Very fine work.

This is beautiful, Ana. I can almost feel the sun burning through the eye lids!

This could be a still out of a Leni Riefenstahl film, Ana.

Ana, GREAT image. The lighting, the model, the mood, the photographer.....all excellent! -Sammy
Guest 12-Aug-2005 20:00
I love this portrait Ana, which is rare in your galleries, it is blissful and sweet, wonder what it would look in full color :)
Guest 05-Aug-2005 08:21
I really like this shot. The angle is great, the compo magnificant, and the focus is spot on. I don't know who the model is, but she is beautiful. This image makes me want to kiss her tenderly on her lips as not to wake her from her slumber. Great light and the "UV" colour works really well here.

Guest 04-Aug-2005 06:22
Gosh, she looks good even while she's sleeping! ;)
Nunes BEIRAO - PHOTO31-Jul-2005 16:41
Bem!... Acho esta imagem uma verdadeira doçura. O modelo é excelente, mas a luz e o "skin tone" são o must da foto. Parabéns!
Kal Khogali31-Jul-2005 09:44
An excellent image Anna and impressive recovery of shadow detail, considering this looks like it was taken on a beach. The skin conveys the sensuality, and the vantage point intimacy. The only thing for me is that the bright arm distracts and then I am lead to her incomplete hand. I can't remember where I read it, but hands in the foreground in images always look combersome and large. MAybe becasue I read that I notice it more!

We spend a third of our lives in an unconscious state, usually a very private and very vulnerable state. So this image is, by its very nature, quite intimate and sensuous. Your vantage point brings us very close to the subject. We can almost feel her soft breathing. The light defines the texture of the skin, and conveys a sense of bliss, a deeply moving human value. This is more than a person asleep, Ana. It is a portrait of contentment, happiness, and pleasure.
