Thanks to Evelyn. Is the first time i ask her to be my portrait model. It's not easy to have natural post that i expect from. So i told her to look outside windows and think of some one... The post & light i amaze much, accept the windows frame.

Crop > stamp work > Level > create dreamy effect with layers in PSCS.

Hope you all like.

Good to see you again! You are a good photography director. Your pretty model appears very slackened. I like particularly the softness of the tones and your play with the shadows and the light. Excellent mood! Bravo! Annie

Beautiful light, beautiful girl, beautiful photo, excellent work Wong.. You made a good job, and also the Model did well with her glance out of the window.

Kind regards

perfect lighting, excellent skin tone -tfs-jon

Hi Wong,

A lovely portrait!!! I like her pose! She looks sad, troubled...
I like the softness you've applied and the nice colours and lighting coming from the window!
Well done and TFS :)


she is so beautiful and you've a good portrait of her here. good work.

its a beautiful portrait wong :)
you did the right thing by asking her to look away from the camera to get her to be more relax and natural, i usually do the same unless its a pro-model :)

another trick i use is to tell them to breathe though their mouths, that will help relax the face and lips :)

good colors and mood here

Excellent Wong. Lovely light and shadow, good colour and the attractive young lady of course. TFS,

this portret has excellent lighting especially her face
also the framing and the compostion are outstanding
I love it, well done

Great moment Wong, the composition is perfect, though I am little bit uneasy of the shadow on her nose, perhaps a good reflector will minimize that. But you cannot deny the commendable image you have created. Cheers always man.


Beautiful portrait Wong. I think she posed so well. And you captured her looks perfectly. The light is great, nicely enlightens her face. Smoothness of the shot perfectly fits her pure beauty.
Congrats my friend, this is impressive portrait.

Wow! She is a pretty model! i like very much the lighting on this picture. Did you use a Noise Reduction Software? Her skin is so smooth and her neck is in proprtion to her head. Very well done Wong.


Beautiful portrait Wong! Very dreamy, with expressive softness where it needs to be. Great, masterful work, glad to see you're still kickin' a**
