So fragile, this knowledge that we hope to bare; to cradle its burden on the tips of our lips and fingers. If this feeling was a color, I would find it blue.

Perfect,
The simplicity, beauty and the adquired softness gives it a amazing toutch.

The color saturation is just right, even the colour of the apple makes sence ;)

Love this shot. I like the lighting. I realize there was some post processing done, but it doesn't hurt this picture. Nice light colors, with the BAM of the green apple. Keep up the good work.

So aware of the unavoidable emotional impact of "colour", like scent, it bypasses "concious" filters, and tho I long passed "found blue" as a personal primary, seeing it never gets less than refreshing, n "guy" as I am, when presented in female form....

Given the text that into'd this pic, I confess I'm not sure my comments are pertinent, yet I "feel" what I see, and speak "my" truth with respect..better a mistaken fool than all other options :) :)

So beyond "Finding Blue", who am I to defy the image?

The pose and form delightful, but such is "my way", tho in image I appreciate the value of "no distraction" in composition, for me, a woman without a "face", whatever the intended endeavour, personally a "form" with no "face" I find hard to find context, even when the "crop" intentional. A "body" without the essential engagement of "face" as the beginning to the rest is personally TOO abstract, without human context, the human form eludes me for all its expressions..if the "subject" is a person, whatever the intended, without a face to engage me first, even if only a precursor to the essential image.....

Art critic me, I recluse myself as profoundly "non-expert", but an image founded on a "someone", call me silly, but without any sense of human engagement to ground the image emotionally, I remain "lost", excluded from the full sense of the image..
I accept this is only my way of "viewing", but a human image I can't see the humanity in...
And "artistically informed"..Err me?? Definitely NOT SO, I merely rely on my eyes and what seems "good".
Certainly the better art-works are beyond only as seemed in intent, but appreciation and the "seeing", I have only my eyes and a good sense of what moves me...

But all said any above dissent. Yep had "it" but a pre-image face as part of the narrative, and "it" apologies "her", and accepting this is such "my thing", and even aware as an "artistically clueless" someone that could be WAY missing the point....

It's still a very beautiful image in so many ways, beyond being "powder blue" hehe...
I may not know her face, but the model is terrific, first in her looks of course, but in her delivery of the intended pic in terms of pose, even the "holding the apple", (the temptation that drew me towards the above more)...
And in capturing that moment so well..To the point I so craved "more" due to my preference...

Provocative, beautiful, fully engaging, even if not as intended, it got my attention as so enticing an image, I was compelled to respond "if only it was my perfect" ?

Apologies this became stupid long, and with complete respect...
