Why I like this Photograph #2

I realize that it’s a bit cliche but I truly do make pictures for myself that I like and there are solid reasons why I like them. It’s a wonderful added reward if others enjoy my work, however, I’m the only one that I feel I need to serve and satisfy.

I love the softness in the focus of this coupled with the natural window light. The curved lines and shadows of the backdrop compliment the overall soft feel of the image. The angle of the fabric around her waist and the lines created by it offer a bit of soft tension.  Her head leaning downward indicates a pensive mood. Her arms drawn in simplify and enhance the shape of the figure. The anonymity allows the viewer to engage with all other aspects of the picture without distraction.
