Hello Treklens, I am Anna Pasichnyk , Ballroom Dancer

Treklens this is Anna, Dancer (and a very good one!!) on the Norwegian Jewel ..Cruisse Ship!

Anna is not only nice looking but she has the same kind of character.. She belongs to the Artists on board the ship with a real Theater and top-class Shows!

No PP on Anna,I wanted to have a pure out the bottle shot (only background ajustment), made it in RAW, changed to **jpg and ajust TL size.

Ship facts:

The 92,000-ton Norwegian Jewel is the company's fourth purpose-built ship for Freestyle Cruising and features 10 restaurants, dynamic public rooms, two Garden Villas and a brand new style of accommodations -

Norwegian Jewel features the latest in relaxation and fitness at the contemporary South Pacific-themed Bora Bora Health Spa and Beauty Salon. Mandara Spa, the world's leading operator of landside resort spas, will operate the spa, pampering NCL guests with an exotic menu of spa and beauty treatments combining the best of East and West.

Norwegian Jewel offers a new, advanced Internet Cafe and Photo Gallery with kiosks to print photos from digital cameras as well as the latest laptops, which guests can rent to use around the ship. The ship also features NCL's signature WiFi.

The Captain of the Norwegian Jewel is:
Constantinos Fafalios : Greek Nat. .
( Have a look in my WorkShop!!)

Once a Cruise ..always hooked up to this sort of vacation!

Thanks Folks
Kind regards
John T

Hi John!Very nice portrait!Well done.

Hello John
This is a very striking portrait. You have caught her beauty well. I like the tones, and the composition is lovely. Her hair style adds an unusual element and the framing works completely.

Hi John,
she's beautiful, a fresh face with so pretty eyes, thanks and greetings

Yes Yes, talked with Patricia and we go make a Cruise.
I told her that there are only ugly girls working on a Cruise boat and I admire you for bringing it in your kind heart to make a photo of one of them . thats why you are my friend!! :- ) ( I am R O F L now) Cheers Johnny


Hello John.
Nice Haircut she has. Was you working during the cruise ?
Good looking portrait picture.
Groeten, Jan

Nice subject. Smile is beautyful.
Contrast is too high. not enough details in shadow.
Did a WS. Hope youlike.

Hi John, I'm sorry but honestly I really dont like this portrait, it is slightly out of focus and the details are poor. The upper part looks like blurred by a PP and the frame it is really too heavy.
Of course, just IMHO, just me! ;)


Very nice portrait. Good softness and composition
Well done

Hi 'my Belanda friend' John,

Delightful portrait (though a bit unsharp, John!)
Superb composition and perfect colours: it looks as rich and warm as the lady herself no doubt is!
P.S. Still waiting to hear if you are coming here this summer!!

Lovely lady.

Portraits and mastering the light is definitely not your specialty John. Work with the spot meter to mesure the light, find the good light, use a piece of white cardboard as a reflecteur. Be creative.
Her eyes are just a black spot. I'm sure she has lovely eyes.


Hi John
Still running around the world and taking great pics. !!!

Hoi John. Wat een leuk koppie en mooie opname!
Leuk verhaal erbij en goede facts. Groetjes

HI dear bro, this is a very nice portrait of the ballerina and she must be very happy of this pic! It is well done with good lighting, good close-up and very sharp!

Great eyes that she has and that you captured!

Also a good pic of Yolanda and the captain in the ws.

Very well done! Take care, sissy :)

Hello John

As I can see you always have an eye for the beauty in life.

Regards, Sylvain

Hi John, I was oop, but this photo is in contrast to your better work, the eyes and mouth needed sharpening and it is somewhat oof. I think a bit of pp would do wonders. The girl is wonderfully happy-looking and photogenic. TFS.
