My baby sister says this photo is "not cool at all!" but I happen to think it's very striking. Amazing what you can understand about a person (or what you can make up, anyway) from just a still image of their face.

Nothing is more striking and exquisite than a beautiful redhead, and this one is just gorgeous. Beautiful mouth and eyes, and as for that hair! I just hope she's careful in the sun with her fragile skin....

I wanna be red so badly! Coincidentally, I was talking to my mom earlier. We both agreed that only few really can pull of red, this girl is definitely among them, and those that pull it off do so romantically.

A beautiful portrait of a beautiful woman, featuring a stunning contrast of Australian sky and fiery red hair.


Blogger The Blasphemous Fiendess said ... (6:15 PM) : 

She isn't a natural redhead, the colour isn't realistic and her eyebrows are brown. She's probably got brown hair with a reddish cast . I like her look and the head scarf is great.


Blogger ANNIE said ... (6:21 PM) : 



Blogger Penny Lane said ... (6:25 PM) : 

Many people are commenting on her nose ring and how it does not suit her. However i believe it adds to her character, it gives her romantic look a little bit of a rawness to it; making a beautiful contrast.

simply wonderful.

Anonymous mccokes said ... (8:06 PM) : 

The artificial red makes her features "pop" (especially those lovely eyes!) more than her natural brown would. An excellent choice.

I can't understand why everybody loves her eyes, in reality, I think they like her mascara, because without it, she'd be very common.

Delicate features and skin, scrumptious pout, soulful eyes, girafe eyelashes, and the red/pinkish hues. This photograph is beautiful and the girl arresting to say the least!

Spectacular. It's not just the beauty of your subjects - although that's irrefutable - but the artistry of your shots that create this kind of magic. You're a true artist - this portrait is absolutely amazing.

i'm a sucker for redheads. beautiful, stunning and perfect combo of colors. someone sign her a modeling contract!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:27 AM) : 

Shades of quattrocento portraits.

And that civilized air you have captured is indeed spoiled by the nose ring, which appears barbaric in this context.

She will have this pic when she is old and regret the piercing.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:29 AM) : 

What's with the heavy eye makeup at the beach? Everything else about her is so fresh and natural. I even like the nose ring. She doesn't need all the sticky black gunk on her lashes. She is beautiful.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:42 AM) : 

I love her freckles.


Blogger FASHION SNAG said ... (9:55 AM) : 

I love the eyes and lips. Gorgeous face. Your facial portraits are your best shots =) xoxo

Love the use of in focus, out of focus and blurred shades of background blue to transfix me in those hypnotising eyes.

straight from 1994, love this photo.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:09 AM) : 

Agree about the nose ring. There is something ethereal about this young woman--then that metal. But she's young and beautiful and otherwise very fresh looking. A beautiful portrait once again.


Blogger Steve Schnier said ... (11:56 AM) : 

Great use of depth of field to focus the viewer on her face. Great shot.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:02 PM) : 

Beautiful but too much eye makeup.She must have spent about 15min. coating those eyelashes. Other than that, very beautiful!


Blogger Jane said ... (1:19 PM) : 

What's the problem with the mascara? It's pretty clear that looking "natural" is not her goal. She's beautiful, and she seems like someone I'd like to know.

s-tunning portraiture!


Anonymous Emily said ... (5:07 PM) : 

I found it interesting that on first glance, I didn't find her particularly beautiful, but the more I look at the photo, the lovelier she becomes. She may not be the most gorgeous girl in the world, but she has the kind of face that makes you want to look at it. Her eyes look like they hide a most fascinating story. She's wide-eyed and full-lipped, but the nose ring keeps her from looking too classically innocent. Well done, Scott.

this girl is obviously stunning with a great sense of style. i love all the reds together. If only she wasn't wearing so much mascara.

as a photograph, i only wish the background was grey..


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:58 PM) : 

why are people saying the nose ring is ''uncivilised''?

in some cultured of the world it is considered just an adornment as earrings or a necklace.

Blogger Odin's Maven said ... (6:07 AM) : 

Love this face - those eyes! She reminds me more than a little of Amy Winehouse (without the extreme kohl batwings!) - she's angelic but she looks like trouble, too. The nose ring is her way of expressing that. I can't imagine her regretting her piercing. I had one too - liked it for a while, then went off it, took it out... and it hasn't left a mark.

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:18 AM) : 

The word "culture" is used in such a generic way now that it refers to any group you care to mention, rather than its original meaning that concerned itself with what was the most excellent in the arts and scholarly pursuits.

When some of us say "civilized" we mean western civilization: the one that produced the quattrocento among other marvels.

I think the reference to "innocence" is mistaken. Much that is considered "innocent" in the past is actually just civilized.

Sadly, we are no longer what we were, and the nose ring captures that.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:23 AM) : 

There's something very very '90's in this photo - her nose ring, hair colour, lip liner, and the challenging gaze take me straight back to my teenage years. A beautiful shot!

Whats with the critisism of her mascara and nose ring and un naturalness of her hair colour? I have the same type of eyelashes and one lick of mascara and I end up with the same look-I certainly dont spend 15 mins on them and get endless comments on them all day long!She prob works in a cafe over the road so maybe shes not wearing mascara to the beach to swim and if she is so what?There are some very closed minded commenters here. BTW she looks stunning in her originality. GO GIRL!
