[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
She's a my passenger sit mate when im going to my aunt somewhere in bicol region. Her face is full of innocense and kindness, however she has a skin decease all over his body, thats why I toned this as B&W.

Im just wondering, to toned or not to toned this picture? Did I made justice to this beautiful child?

That is the question.

Hi Jomari, this is a nice portrait, very well-composed. I think it looks good in b&w, although it's hard to compare without seeing it in color.

Thanks for sharing!


un beau portrait de cette fillette.
Pourtant, je trouve li'mage un peu trop claire.

So...Jomari.. we both did a posting of cute little girls( for me my grandaughter as you know)
I do not 100 % understand your question: Toned? You mean colour?? I ALWAYS prefere colour.. specialy for a cute girl we see here..B/W makes it a little to dramatic and the childs world is colourfull and happy.
Your ohoto? Goos shot.. good POV. TFS and bye

Hello Jomari,

This is a very candid portrait of the child especially with her large innocent eyes. Ay kawawa naman - I hope her skin disorder gets corrected by an MD. TFS! Danilo

Hi Jomari,
It's hard for me to compare without the colored photo. This one as already a lot of impact and we can already see some of her decease in the face. TFS

Expressive facial expression.


What a beautiful little girl. Hope she can get her skin problem cured. I like your portrait very much but would have cropped out more of the distraction to accentuate her lovely eyes. I have made a workshop showing it a little differently.
Cheers Joan
