.. she's not what you think from the title and thumbnail... she's actually a guitar maker i saw in one of our leading local guitar factories in Mactan Island, Cebu.. it's definitely handmade..

I think you've done a wonderful job, capturing this artist at work, at this very moment.
All elements work together perfectly, many small interesting details.

Well Done.


very nice! I love how you put her in the middle of a very simple almost empty room. makes you feel how she enjoys her work.

have you tried increasing the contrast a little? it might also work well.

Yes the thumbnail looks like she's inside a studio belting a kundiman. Very lovely and effective desaturation Bay. Cebu does make good guitars. I bought one. Greetings - Danilo

The nature of the girl renders this photo much pleasant one. Good colors pastel.

Great photo! TFS!

The high keyed background isolates the girl and the guitar as they are the only ones that appear to have color and thus makes the image work daniel. I also like the way you work on the top part with the small guitar. Yes, looks handmade to me too. Luis.

I'm surprised how this photo's had so little points... Can I give it ten??!!:D

I love it...

Great colours job, and POV choice!!

I haven't favourited a photo for mounths, but here it goes...

well done!!


Hey Dan, long time no see!! i see you've got a new camera too and we have the same choice when it comes to brand preference.

the mood created by this photo is so dramatic and the selective desaturation gave it a classy touch! very well done!! Ron
