    great work
    I really like the fourth : )

  • The use of the light in the first and last two images give a really subtle edge to the photos. I like that those areas are sort of blurred out yet the eye is drawn to it. The contrasting silhouette of the second image is my favourite though, the hair really stands out and I love the shadows on the bed cover.

  • so peacefull, awesome work…great use of light and shades…

    Hey Finnbar

    I love the pool shot. Excellent play on light and shade and form – great composition.
    Cheers
