I’m finally re-activating my Contact Sheet column; and as my first piece here in many a month, I give you this order. Go to Flickr, now, and give this photo a fave.  I wish you could give it more than one fave, in fact, because it’s absolutely fantastic!  Tamary has assembled a lovely composition here of her as the model tying her hair back in the mirror, and then raised it from good to outstanding with her choice of lighting, positioning, and the post work to add in the reflection of herself in the old mirror. And I just realized why I enjoy it so much; because it reminds me of the painter’s work of Andrew Wyeth at his best — a sort of hyper-realistic distillation of a moment in time, with the model focused and intent on the small daily task and ignoring totally the photographer capturing the moment.

If there were an award for outstanding photo of the year in Second Life, this would be high in the running, in my opinion.  I really can’t praise this enough; it just captures a mood perfectly!
