Yes its good and moody , soft tones and subdued light , becomming a hallmark of yours.
I do wonder what is upsetting you , But thats just the effect you want to create ?
Very effective .

Beautiful, filled with emotion. I view in wonder and admiration.--Rene

I see exhaustion and a painfull longing in your eyes. Or maybe I'm just projecting my own melancholic winter mood on your image :) The reddish tones go really well with the emotional theme.
Guest 19-Dec-2005 12:44
Another excellent shot of yours Ana. The suble light gives an impact with your work.
Gets my vote ~

I've had a hard time commenting on this the last few days so I'll just say it. It's heartbreaking. I'll vote.

The somber lighting with that little tinge of sensual red is perfect.
Guest 17-Dec-2005 15:34
Very beautiful melancholic capture!
Guest 17-Dec-2005 05:56
Wow. That's about all I can say about it. Very very nice.
JW16-Dec-2005 22:27
A very original and thoughtful study. Well done
Guest 16-Dec-2005 22:04
Muito melancólica... Gostei...
Guest 16-Dec-2005 14:27
Always amazing!!!! you look little sad :-(
Guest 16-Dec-2005 13:18
I feel alone and vunerable yet comfortable at the same time. The darkness clouds my thoughts yet lets me think clearly without distractions from the reality of the life before
Guest 16-Dec-2005 01:55
Nice, but... a bit in João Cesar Monteiro style.
Pepe Zyman16-Dec-2005 00:45
This is a very powerful image.
If you are posing, you did an extraordinary job fooling everybody about your feelings. If you are not, I wish for you to have somebody near for comfort!
Sean Blumenhein15-Dec-2005 22:41
I love how dark your images are, they seem to portray a mood that is hard to find on here, you are unique, and that is what I love about you.
Guest 15-Dec-2005 21:59
Beautiful, full of emotion, Ana.
All is expressive: your hair, your eyes and your arms.
Guest 15-Dec-2005 20:53
Your eyes are look like u are death..stearing that the far distance..look's like u dont have enought strenght to say a word:Help.......................

This image is so quiet, I am afraid to whisper. The dimness here is more than a technique or stylistic device. There is an honest, painful reality to this image, Ana, a sense of exhaustion and need. Held back by the darkness, this photograph creeps up on us and lodges in our imaginations. One of your most memorable images.
Guest 15-Dec-2005 18:45
aaaah, this looks like my kind of day :)
type15-Dec-2005 15:51
Ana what a beautiful, emotive SP pulsing with your characteristic feeling and mood. You look like you're in one of those moments of quiet desperation where you're sure you ay never get up again, while your head pounds...
Gilles Navet15-Dec-2005 14:08
Superbe et intimiste
J'aime toujours tes traitement des tons, GMV
Guest 15-Dec-2005 14:06
Owls never sleep.And neither shall you.For even if you blink for a moment on your pillow the night will have run away.Disappearing without formal notice like a disgruntled tenant."Who?Who?" deserves to rent one's life in this manner?Then tomorrow's alarm hollers through your squinting windows.You are crying "Who?Who?" can endure this restless flight between days?That seem as one unbroken pearl necklace.With their light touching light without pause.Yet hanging across your slumping shoulder as chained obligation.
I will carry you away to where toffee time pulls sweet and long under a honey sun.That wanders between horizons with a lover's stroll.

~ may the theif of comfort discover you and claim you hostage against the world's will V!~

O olhar de saudade.

Thinking in the dark.. wondering .. it makes me feel lost and sad. Beautiful SP, Ana.. makes me want to crawl back into bed where all is safe, warm .. protected.

Linda e emotiva foto. Parabéns Ana, seus ´selfs´são maravilhosos.

Very nicely done. I love it when a photographer forces the viewer to look harder at the image and this one does. Well done.
SRW15-Dec-2005 10:36
Beautiful, and yet sad....
(That's a very faraway look you have in your eyes....)
Sam_C15-Dec-2005 10:17
Ana, you are in one of your insomniac moods again, I can tell! Lovely image, so soft, sweet, and subtle :-)
