I will begin my critique by saying I quite like your image. I think the way the pine branches are framing the photo is quite beautiful and the snowflakes add a beautiful effect. I have seem the black and white version as well, but without a doubt I prefer this version. I like the way the colors fade...

Oh my goodness! Where do I start?! I will begin at the title - this already gives the photo a wonderful sense of playfulness. This is without a doubt one of the loveliest images I have seen in a long time, without it being cheesy or overly sweet. I love the little mouse and the way you framed the im...

The eyes are so striking in this image. The shallow depth of field really emphasizes them beautifully. Even though the overall image is rather dark, I think the contrast between the darkness and the brilliance of the gems, the cheeks and the eyes works great! I did notice a strange line over the lip...

Happy New Year, darlings! I hope the New Year finds all of you inspired!

Alexandra Baban
Artist | Professional | Photography
I first gained interest in photography ten years ago, at the age of fourteen, when I discovered image editing software and when I consequently started experimenting with photomanipulation. Since then I graduated from University with a degree in Visual Arts, specializing in Photography, Video Art, and Digital Image Processing. I have been fortunate enough to receive a number of reputable accolades along the way, such as 'Le Grand Prix' in Fotomaraton '06 organized by l'Institut Français de Iaşi, being a finalist in ASA Talent's Schiet ASA Campaign, and numerous features in magazines around the world.

I approach my images with a timeless aesthetic and I am deeply inspired by the sensuous imagery of film noir and Romanticism. Even though the narrative of my work frequently totters on the melancholic, I always look for beauty in my photography. My artistic background is rooted in self-portraiture, but throughout the years I have experimented with many different genres, collage, conceptual photography and beauty photography quickly becoming some of my favorites.

In 2011, I established an online art magazine called Qaterpillar Magazine where, along with collaborators from all over the world, I promote and discuss the nature and importance of beauty in contemporary art. You can leaf through the issues here.

In 2012 I started a new life and my own business in the Netherlands where I hope my passion for this art will bloom into something wonderful.

Qaterpillar is looking for contributors!
