[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I was on holiday at Lankawi Malaysia (a beach resort island) for the last 5 days. While photographing the surroundings, there was a wedding taking place near the pool side and I noticed this oriental beauty staring at my long lens...and they say size doesn't matter? Well.. she was begging to be photographed and I think she was curious how this large contraption that was hanging off my neck would bring out the best of her. When I asked her permission for a photograph- she was instantly obliging and posed away! I took a rapid burst sequence using only natural light. Being in the digital photo era, I could tell she was pleased with the end result by her reaction upon showing her the photo. I was captivated by her sharp features and beautiful eyes. A true oriental beauty...

As you all know, I am most comfortable shooting the feathered ones- so any suggestions from the portrait specialists will be appreciated and thanks for viewing.

Happy holidays to all my TL friends!
