Yesterday I went to a farm to buy some strawberries and found that a family from Tailand had purchased it. They were very pleasant and invited me to have lunch with them. I offered to take some photos that they could use for promotion.

Hi Roger

A superb b&w sepia image of this charming couple with good tonal range & shallow dof. Looks about 1930, and Thai people are very nice. The Thai cuisine is also excellent & I miss my favourite restaurant back home. Tfs!

Hi Roger,
They indeed look very pleasant with great smiles. Very nice expressions. Your tone range is excellent, good PP work to create this effect. Nicely managed settings. TFS Julie

Awesome portrait of this couple! I like the use of sepia, looks like this was taken long time ago. Good details and nice contrast. Well done, tfs.

Hi Roger,
A fine double portrait of this couple turned into an old photo. I like the PP work you adapted with the sepia toning that really fits. A very friendly smile from both of them. The white vignette is increasing impact to the presentation and rendering it more old.
Well done,

Francis Xavier

Hi Roger.

A wonderful effect used with your new friends, I hope you send them a copy. The tones and gradient used are so attractive, the smiles and eye contacts say much, very well presented. TFS

Stv :0))

Love the pose, the long reaching lens here, don't particularly like sepia for people. BW would work better, color even better here. But that's just me! Wish those people in the BG weren't there too! Maybe I can play with it. Very natural smiles etc!

Ciao Roger, great portrait of lovely coupler, wonderful natural colors, excellent PP work, beautiful blurry BG and splendid light, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

This is a romantic old style portrait, excellent result, well composed and presented

Hello Roger, what a lovely picture of your new friends, I hope that you show it to them.They look very welcoming.
The sepia treatment works well.
Good bokeh.
Obviously a bright day but their faces are clear to see.
Tfs, regards Jean.

I like the appeal of the picture you managed to get in this work, Roger!
The expressions on the face of your models are amazing, and I like the light is got here.
The skin tones are natural and a good eye-contact is maintained in the picture.
The PP work is commendable too.
Good job!

Kind regards,
