<img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/r/r…" width="15" height="18" alt=":blackrose:" title="Black Rose"/> My apologies I wanted to do a critique but this is my first one so kinda messed it up. Please see my comments below for my full thoughts. And as far as the star ratings being that I recently lost a close friend to cancer and she spent her last weeks depressed and calling herself ugly because she had no hair 5 stars was not enough to give you on the impact it had on me. I just wish that she was still with us so that I could show her this photo so that she could see for herself that beauty is way more than hair. Truly amazing photo and incredibly beautiful and strong model!!

I have to admit I wanted to do a critique for this photo since I saw it for the first time. I always admired your work, but this photo specially gives me a emotion I can't even explain completely. She's strong!not because she shows that she doesn't have hair or she passed her sickness, she's strong in this photo because she shows sincerely that even if she's afraid she is opening the door to life again! she's strong because inside she's saying "I'm alive and I'm living strong and confident" and it's admirable!! excellent work I have to say! Amazing!

i am not a professional art critiquing person but I must tell you that this is a well thought out picture having your friend remove the wig with its symbolic shedding a false image and showing the world the real beauty inside. i think shooting in black and white was a good choice as that color may have been over the top,and actually a distraction. this b/w also adds to the drama that it looks like your trying to go for. the only spot i see that looks a little washed out is on her shoulder where the sun was a bit to strong. overall I think this image could easily find its way to a photo gallery to be shown to the public.

so, this is my first official critique here on dA. and maybe I am not that professional like you and all this, but here are my thougths about this, nevertheless. <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/s/s…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" title=":) (Smile)"/>

I really really was so impressed as I saw this picture at first sight. It is just one of the most stunning artworks I have ever seen in my whole life. there is a story, strong emotions, fantastic posing and composition.
I love her pose so much, this shows us how strong she is. maybe this will give also some hope and strength to some of us, if they are healthy or not.
b/w tones also suits soso well here. contrasts and details are just amazing.and even if I usually prefer landscape format , upright is a very good choise here (:
And you used the light again in such a great way.<img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/s/s…" width="30" height="30" alt=":sun:" title="Sun"/>
the sun is shining, as long as the world goes on no matter what happens to us. it just goes on <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/s/s…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" title=":) (Smile)"/>
and she is beautiful, indeed <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/l/l…" width="26" height="17" alt=":love:" title="Love"/> even without hair. most of woman without it would look some kind of ugly, I think (including myself <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/a/a…" width="15" height="15" alt=":aww:" title="Aww"/>)

so, for me, this is a perfect photography. technically and emotion-even. all I can say, that I truely love it <3

I hope for your friend that everything will be much better in the future. I wish her just the best from the bottom of my heart. <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/h/h…" width="15" height="13" alt=":heart:" title="Heart"/>

ah, congrats for the DD, btw! <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/l/l…" width="26" height="17" alt=":love:" title="Love"/> so well deserved.
THIS is art, this is history and this is human.
should be more great stuff like this here <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/n/n…" width="15" height="15" alt=":nod:" title="Nod"/>

ps: I wrote in english,so that everyone is able to read this <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/w/w…" width="15" height="15" alt=";)" title=";) (Wink)"/>
alles liebe! für euch beide <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/h/h…" width="15" height="13" alt=":heart:" title="Heart"/>

first of all; i dont text this because ur on of my best friends but i really gotta say something to this image;
this one really took my breath away, it is so deep and u really can feel her "pain" in here and how she deal with her destiny. I opened this picture on my computer and i really needed to stare at this one about 5 minutes because it really took my breathe away. the make up is also a good choice and well done (dont forget to name the awesome bracelets) at this point haha. This image just shows how talented you are. anna is amazing.

I have seen many kinds of bravery in my line of work; silent, outspoken, forbidden, hushed and a couple more. The model in this photograph struck me as the kind of person with the best kind of bravery, in my opinion, confidence, self-confidence. You can see it in her expression, you can sense it in the action she's taking right in the moment of the shot.
It's very interesting that you chose black and white for this photograph, the emotion just emanates without the need of color whatsoever. The bit of light that hits directly on her is necessary to show what needs to be shown.
She's taking off the hair that's not hers', so to speak. She's showing us another side of beauty, she's definitely gorgeous and uniquely portrays the fact that every person makes and has their own beauty traits.
Perhaps, I personally can't really critique this piece the way you want to, not having the condition this person has but I do recognize bravery, confidence and beauty when I see it. Even with her eyes closed, we can take a peep at her true, clear and beautiful intentions.
Great Job.

My mother had Alopecia Areata while I was growing up. She wore wigs for several years. Fortunately it eventually grew back and I believe she told me most cases it's not permanent. I'm glad your friend is confident enough for this. I admire her truly but I still hope someday you will be able to photograph her with a full head of hair and a smile. My heart and my deep respect goes out to her. ^.^

I lost all of my hair due to early onset female pattern baldness. I was 23 when I finally gave in and shaved my head. This photo is beautiful and speaks straight to the heart of me. Nice Work <3 Anna you are beautiful! Rock that amazing bald head!!!! :))))))))))

You truly captured her beauty in this photo. I read a book about this disease in a book called because of Anya. people like this truly are strong and brave. I believe people this strong shoud be rewarded. She really is beautiful inside and out. (or at least it seems like that to me) i really wish i could meet her in person. I really wish i was as brave as her. I know I can never be. If i had lost all my hair i would have made my self sick with embarrassment. I admire you with all my heart.
