    While I am impressed with your beautiful image, Miaxim, I am more impressed with your model's ramrod straight posture. Is she a former marine? :biggrin: If not, I want the name of her physical therapist. All kidding aside, another great image. You and Vin have provided some great portraits to this thread.

    Thanks,

    That, too, would explain her perfect posture.

    Keep posting,

    Wow, my entry is now featured?! Thanks, Amin!

    Of course) I've posted some shots of her here and there on mu-43. You can also check my Flickr stream or 500px portfolio.

    Like her!

    Is the background a photographer's backdrop thingy, or an interesting wall?

    A mixture of Russian and Scottish, a volatile combination and picture perfect.

    If I could muster half of your skill I'd be a happy man :2thumbs:

    Thanks, guys!

    0dBm, well, it`s plain & simple - she`s just sitting near big panoramic window so it is daylight only to her right.

    I'm no critic and I certainly couldn't match your images of Katya so this is purely subjective. There's something about the first image of her in this set which makes it stand out. She is projecting a calm stillness and serenity which you have captured perfectly.

    If only we could all be lucky enough to work with girls like Katya :smile:
