[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
As with my last post, this is another picture I took in Calgary, Canada. The get-together of models and photographers was organized by a very good fotog friend, Peter Marlin, and Kaley, this girl in the picture was actually one of his models. I shot this outside of the building where the party was going on...again, with ambient light. After prompting Kaley to show a range of emotions, I managed to capture dimensions of her personality. This was one of them.

To Peter. my firend, this is for you. Thanks Kaley. Thanks Rosalinda.

Lovely photo! My best regards,

Wow! I love this shot! This looks like being taken from a legend :) Colors, compo, lightning and exposure are top notch! Congrats!

hi there, excellent portrait, the eyes match the vail, nice composition, excellent clarity
thanks scott

So you have started with 'farang' models now, have you? Hi Manny, how have you been? It is interesting to compare the 'Asian' character to the 'Western' one: Kaley's beauty seems a bit less mysterious in one way, but more hidden in another. - Have a good weekend! Cheers, Cordelia :)

Hello Manuel

Very nice portrait. Nice composition and the green piece of tissue goes well with the model skin color. The model is very photogenic and has lovely eyes.


Regards, Sylvain

Superb quality portrait, the head scarf frames the face nicely and the hand and expression tell a story.

Wow,after viewing this & your gallery I would definately say you are not an amatuer,you definately have a talent for portraits,not only in capturing the image gracefully & with vibrance,but also with your models, they are so natural in their poses,great viewing indeed.


I LOVE the colors and vibrance, as well as the details and colors of the eyes. Very interesting. This is one example of great photography!!!
Love it.
Thanks for sharing,

magnifique portrait avec une lumiere parfaite sur la peau de ce magnifique mannequin

As always, a lovely portrait.
You certainly have an excellent eye for portraiture. Your post processing, especially the extensive work you do on your subjects' eyes (is that the ZTO technique?) has won the admiration of many and established a loyal following and imitation of the technique. Similar can be said of the headscarf option - I've tried it myself, even!
So congratulations to you on your inspirational work, it's a legacy to be proud of.

what can i say again,galing mo talaga idol, portraiture really is your master, capturing in the right time the expression and Pov of your eyes models is what i admire mosts in your photos.maybe one day youcan come to Dubai and have a workshop .would you? well done.

Waouw Manuel, I love this photograph!
The color of the skin contrasts beautifully with the green and the eyes have a very special shine on them
Very well done and tFS

Great composition of a beautifull model.

I feel that for a more than 10.000pts photographer, the right eye should have being sharper.


Calgary (^_^),

Too bad ! I would have loved to meet you !
I hope you are having fun there ! A lot of women and men ( including me ) would love to be your model looking at your great portfolio .

This photo is a very good example on how you master very well the light available, and the eyecontact with your model.

as always, very impressive work. lovely shot. Tfs


this photo have to be a great photo too, but i feel its to dark, maybe its because the green wardrobe ?

if we see lighting in her hand (finger) its a bit flat. what happen my friend ?
the colors need more adjustment and more contras in wardrobe.

but i like this photo. the eyes look very mysterious.


It is really a nice portrait. magnificient face
