Hi Alec,

On the photo. Quite exceptional good quality portrait of your niece. Her eyes are of almost hypnotizing beauty. B&W conversion and the PP -work is very good indeed.

As this is the first time I've seen your photo I've looked at your profile. Stunning portfolio I must say.
Downside on my critique is twofold:
1. Your last given critique is a stunning 7 months ago. In your own intro you write quote "I am looking forward to learning more from the gurus." unquote. IMHO judging your pics you are one of the better photographers on TL and I've made you a favorite. Yet your contribution seems limited to placing great shots with excellent PP-work without giving critiques yourself. Please let us less fortunate photographers learn.
2. Your notes are somewhat limited if I may be frank. Same here as under 1: let us learn by reading what you did PP-wise so, again, the less fortunate photographer may progress.

Having said that; the picture remains of astonishing quality.

Kind regards,

Stunningly beautiful work.

Excellent PP work as always, particularly on her eyes.

Hi Alec,

I could look at this for hours. It's mesmerising. The quality of the photo is only matched by the processing. Please explain as I want to learn...

I wish you would share a bit more info of PP, have you done any PP here?

Great Portrait of a beautiful girl. I like her pose, her big eyes, the lighting and the composition. TFS
