Hi Edwin,

Great image, very sharp and good use of dof. Yu have the focus on the girl spot on, and the blurred background works very well.

Is there an advantage in converting to TIFF and then to jpeg after your pp work?

Thanks for sharing, good work,



Elle se font dans le paysage, très beau portrait. cordialement

Aparte scherpe foto. Super voor het thema

Hello Edwin,
Perfect photo for St. Patrick's day.
Excellent colors and composition. TFS

ps: here in Chicago, they actually paint all roads, and every thingin green for the St. Patrick's day parade.

Hi Edwin

Excellent composition and detail.
Very well taken.

Regards Derek

ha, it was exactly what I was expecting from you to post for the theme !!!


It's good to see the Green Goth again Edwin!
Perfect choice for the theme of the week,
but also a great shot in itself.
I love her expression here, and the BG colors especially on the right really helps her pop out of the frame.
Nice focus too, great bokek. That's a greta lens, you are doing it justice!
Well done.

Hi Edwin,
I think she is green enough, paint or no paint this is a nice portrait, maybe I would have zoomed back a little so that the leaves of the headband were not cut off.
Well done
Regards Andy

Very greed indeed. With a great sharpness and lighting. It amazes me how many different ideas come from these Fridays themes. And some, very, very good, like this one. TFS


Awesome DOF, nice details, great contrast and saturation, and a very GREEN posting for the theme.
Well done Edwin.

Hi Edwin,
More than enough... :)

This is a very interesting contribution for the theme indeed. Well spotted and nicely captured. I enjoyed this shot, Edwin.

First - I love those eye-lashes - AND they aren't green!!
What a lot of time that paint and make-up must have put on.
Good capture Edwin - well done

Woooo.. this is sooo qualify for Green... that's for sure, what a face/body paint! :P

Nice captured, nice DOF and sharpness, I like her ears too...:D


:) ltr

Fairy ears and green in her hair, that is the first thing that I see when looking at this beautiful GreenBarones.

Yes indeed Edwin green in places you can see and judging from her appearance she has had a total bodypaint, greener you can not go.
Een sprrojesachtige bijdrage aan het theme!


Hello Edwin!
Yes, very green!
Lovely composition for this "Fridays theme"!
Excellent portrait!
Best regards!

...return... :)

Superb capture and composition with great details - the eyelashes are wonderfully sharp
The green leaves in the front add to the feeling -- of green upon green
Yes -- It certainly is green enough :)

Hi Edwin
I think that is quite enought green on the picture for the today's theme. Very well done picture. TFS

Hello Edwin,
This portrait of Miss Green is just amazing. I remember another one and both of them are great. Good use of DOF. Excellent quality of the picture.

Hoi RSB,
Excellent portrait my friend, very special make-up she has used (your girlfriend?), but I see she stood there already for a long time, the leaves are growing out of her ears, boy I don't want to see her feet :-)
Just joking, superb addition to the "Green Theme".

N.B. Better a "Green Carrot" than a "Rare Snijboon" :-)

Hello Edwin.
Really great entry to the theme. Couldn't be any greener.
Lovely portrait with great sharpness and contrast. I like the blurred b/g.

Hi Edwin,

Interesting face-painting job here! Looks very hippie / tree-huggerish but a nice portrait. A slightly tighter crop (losing some of the right side) might make a stronger composition. Regards, Paul.
