This shot is well intriguing in that the first glace says oh Lover's Kiss. . . And yet it the lighting and the shadows suggest somethin...

I love the duality of this set but specifically this image. As the 2 images of you seem to actually appear separate in that you have one expression and the reflection another. In that you seem to be trying to remember or remembering something which causes u to reach out then we see what your an almost deja vu way.. ; ]

Anywho I really like this set one becuz that them of duality is done & caught well and in this one the mirror seems more like a window..Which gives it a very Alice in wonderland feel (tho I don't think that was intend'd).

Nicely shot that capture the beauty of introspection..

Well Done jess B-)
My First reaction was this was the 1st image I've seen on DA of Carlotta smiling. So for that alone I say thank you and Well Done

*More to the point I'd say that this shot is very bright in both tone and feel as for lighting I'd say that having the camera focused on her takes care of that as her beauty and her smile are shown to "brighten up the room".. as they would.

I love that this pic show subject in a "natural state" though I can't tell if its coming off or being put on and the "?" itself adds to the impact of the image. I also like that that you've left her (as far as I can see) untouched in that her true allure is in the honesty of her natural beauty..many pic I've seen of equally beautiful women are redone or touched up and that detracts from the image both aesthetically and artistically for me anyway.

Overall I say Well Done.. In that you've taken a Very Elegant and Naturally Beautiful subject and created art that is unique and very appealing both in that it makes one smile but also wonder as to the story (if any) behind the moment.

*Im now curious how your other work is.. B-)

Beauty as they say . . is in the eye of the beholder.
For some this goes w/ out saying especially for those who'd want to sell or defend their own art.

However. . .
Id like to present that every artist as an individual has their own way of looking at life as Jeffery Chaucer from Knights Tale said "all of life lies in the artist scope" My question is to those who both appreciate art and those who create art.

What is it you really want in the eye of the Beholder?

Because truthfully and I have to admit I am a fan of Art as a whole for its ability to communicate more to more people than was even intended by its creator.

As one who is discovering my own creative expression, I love almost all of the art I've found on DA. And I have found that from pro's like J Scott Campbell to those who are Aspiring Artist every one seems to present despite their (original) intentions a particular vision that is very unique to them. However unrefined or undefined every artist goal in my opinion should be to have a signature approach to their work.
I've cited JSC because almost anyone who has seen his work will remember that almost all of his women have the same face (w/ exception of commission works) it is the goal of myself as an artist to have a signature look to my work both in sketch and printed page. And though I am no expert on form or function in art or anything, I believe it is important that I as an artist get to place that like Campbell I don't really need to sign my work . . . You just know it's mine. Another example I've found is that of the late Michael Turner. His fans as well as former associates know what I'm talking about. It may be since he is no longer with us (RIP) people are taking a different look at his work overall.

In print we see authors like Tolkien or CS Lewis or even Hemingway and Jules Verne. And we see sort of signature presented so what I say isn't just referred or applied to Visual Arts.

My point if necessary is that those of Us who either are or aspire to be Artist need to re-assess ourselves and hold our selves Accountable for the message we send in and thru our art. Is it one that illustrates the Beauty/Importance of our subject or are we just doing what we feel/want for the sake of doing it (or just for the $)?

Because the money we receive for our work is only a shadow of the value our audience or patron has on our work as artist. I'm not separating authors cause writing is a form of Art only your canvas is the imagination. So my fellow artist remember in the end its not the Beholder that gives value to your work Its YOU So sign your work in the Eye of the Beholder
