Still from the same model as my previous post
....Taking advantage of the natural/ambient light on a cloudy day by cathing it up on a silver reflector towards the models face...Same PP method are applied like increasing the saturation and Unsharp Mask for the skin treatment.

Hi Roy,

I've never seen such brilliant blue in a photo. It's gorgeous. The photo is just striking! She is beautiful with all of her adornment and jewels. I like how the blue frames her face.

This is terrific. Lisa

Voilà un magnifique portrait!
Les couleurs, la luminosité,l'originalité...
Tout y est.


Details of fabric are magnificent, and it would be enough... but when you look at the glance you was able to capture you definetely fall in love with this picture!

Hi Roy, beautiful face framed by vivid texture. Excellent detail and management of light. Well done really!
ciao, cinzia

Hi Roy
This is good although to me it feels so much like a Manny Librodo shot and doesn't have the life and originality of your previous photo. The strong saturation, the skin treatment, the PP on her eyes, the composition all look like another photographer's style.
Even so, you have done it well - although I do find the fingers at the bottom of the frame very messy. :|

hello Roy
you have reminded me Manny, a great portfoloio on TL. i am a great fan of him. you seems to adopted his style. i like the PP work very much here. you have put a lotr of effort to get this result. fine composition thought. i like the saturated colours here. nice portrai, a bit different. i love this similar portrait of Manny, have a lookEmma

Manuj Mehta

magnificent as very lively specially the eyes and contrast you have here.
cheers po!

hi Roy,
excellent work...well satured and really
great management of portrait.
..Manny does school!!

best sERGIO
