My repect for Lola Ibyang, an elderly woman selling candles beside the Sta Rosa Church. Her serenity, calm face and gentle voice captured not only my camera but my conscience as well. I can never forget her gentle smile and sweet memories from her life stories...

Hi Phil, the light in this photo is so impressive, it hits the head cover and yet avoids the face.... I am impressed. her eyes are focused and her smile is class act... Good capture. IMHO you can remove the shine on the tip of her nose in PP and get a perfect portrait...

Hi Phil

The sepia tone works great here. A superb head & shoulders portrait of the old woman with good reflections in the eyes & nice use of a shallow dof, yet still with good sharpness on her weathered face. Tfs!
