Hello, Arman -
Fantastic! The interplay of light and shadows create a dramatic effect while the delicate scarf across part of her face creates a sense of mystery. Wonderfully cropped. I have only one suggestion - the partial left eye showing is a bit unharmonious with the rest of the image; if the scarf were covering her entire eye, I think it would be a minor improvement. Regardless, great image.

Hi Arman....great shot..wonderful details...very dramatic.

I really like the way you take portraits, but IMHHHO you are spoiling them with such HPP.
I'm quite convinced you would have much more satisfaction from a research undertaken in the use of y camera, more than on the use of photoshop.

I really hope u dont feel offended by my critique, I see many people on TL using a lot the HPP but on worse matter, in y case I think it is different... ;)



Hi Arman,

A beautifully captured portrait of a beautiful lady. I composition is amazing. The colors are brilliant, and the tree leaves in the photo add to the photo.

Extremely well done!


awesome pare, parang CG! i swear i thought it was rylai from dota...

...dota dota...

haha great shot pre, impressive. the lighting and processing is just awesome.

Hi Arman,
Wonderful shot with great colors and light.
Nice use of scarf, leaf and the reflector.
Great work.

really nice lighting, I love it's greenish theme againts the hidden face

Hi Arman,
You have an amazing picture here. I like the presentation of green which is always cool in the eyes and thanks for your short note. But reading what Marco wrote : "you would have much more satisfaction from a research undertaken in the use of y camera, more than on the use of photoshop", I think I'm agree with him. Well... May be the satisfaction with camera is the main thing and the skill of using software will be a plus.
Kind thoughts, Imelda

Hi ,
Really a nice artwork presentation.
So beautiful.


The lighting is very nice and the scarf adds depth to this portrait. Great job of combining all of the greens together as well. A really nice portrait image. TFS

I was interested in Marco's critique of this shot. Your post skills are certainly polished but I wonder if all of the basics are there, yet - including composition and placement of elements within the frame, and attention to detail such as the half-obscured eye.

To me it looks like various other treatments, including some blur, skin-softening and perhaps high-pass, vignetting, and dodge/highlight enhancement in he reyes were all used - it would be good to see the original, unedited shot in WS to note the differences!

Hi Arman,
Fantastic shot, I think the most alluring thing about a woman is her eyes and you have caught them beautifully imo. TFS

hello Arman
wonderful and very fine output!

Hi Arman,

A seductive and somewhat surreal portrait. Lighting and focus are very good, but I think showing her entire left eye would be beneficial. Your pp skills are superb.

Hi Arman,
very beautiful and captivating shot.
Th sharpness is great and the details are very pretty and attractive, especially the eyes. the harmony between colours are great - green leaves, green scarf and green eye shadow.
so lovely and congratulations.


Excellent portrait, color, composition and editing, congratulations, hugs.

Arman, I love the colors and the sharp focus on her eyes. The light on her face is amazing. Well done. Sothy

superb details and with nature touch of greens ;-)

Wow, Arman,
this one is fantastic.
I love the colours and the mystic mine.
Excellent work, thanks and greetings

Hi Arman,
Great mystery, coated in colour and deep tones, her eyes tell a story amongst the mystery.
