[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
It is not always that you get an opportunity to photograph a beautiful woman. I was fortunate on my recent trip to Tehran. Elnaz is not only a very fine looking artist but a wonderful actress too. She has an intimate sense for camera and knows how to get the best out of it. As my director friend commented...She flirts with the camera.
This is one of many pictures I took of her that afternoon. She is simply gorgeous.

Hello Mukesh,

Elnaz is indeed a beautiful lady. The soft focus does this photograph justice. I was surprised you were allowed to get this close and take this photograph of a woman in Iran. I am American, so the thought of photographing ANYTHING in Iran is a very exotic idea, to say the least, but this woman must be a national treasure and protected by some obscure law from any foreigner. Congratulations on a great capture!

beautiful face is made a beautiful shot!

She is a beautiful woman for sure.

You had to use a very high ISO to get this shot, and to find a sufficient shutter speed. It looks to me as if you also used noise reduction to get the shot looking 'smoother,' although the result is possibly too smooth. Maybe I'm wrong.

Also with such a wide aperture her left eye (our right) is slightly lacking sharpness.

I would have liked to see a fraction more space above her eyebrows, it could be balanced by a fraction less space below her chin!

Your taste is pretty good Mukesh,the hazyness in this portret is creating a rrrrromantis mood.

Hello Mukesh,
One of the most beautiful portrait.
The magical eyes,the expression on the face,composition ,everything is just fantastic.
Excellent work.

WOW.. what amazing eyes this woman has Mukesh. I think this image lacks just a bit of sharpness and clarity, but you sure have captured a great atmosphere with this.
You are so right: she is absolutely gorgeous!!!
