Hi John,
Not a long time ago, a man wanted to present itself to young ladies presented them his card. Today, he goes to present their portraits on the digital camera. Times change! :)

Beautiful portrait well composed. Very good colors and sharpness! Bravo! Annie

PS/ I hope you appreciated the " Battle of the braves"! It is an important historic page of our short History!

Very lovely ladies here John! You did their portraits very nice! Love the tones, the close crop! Very good shot! I'll bet they are proud of this!

hi John,

Song is not a matter, but who sings?
Beautiful singers. Beautiful picture and excellent lighting setup.
I learn something about relationship. May I? . . ha ha ...


Tjemig John weer een paar 'lelijke' dames. Nee, mijn vrouwtje zal nu zeker een Cruise doen hoor, ik ga snel boeken, hahahaha.
Geweldig gebomen. Een hecht span deze twee, man wat een lieve snuitjes. Mooi John! Groet

Hello Johnny,
This is wonderful dual portrait of these beautiful singers. Pretty smile. Sharp, nice skin tones and well composed.
Reading what you did, a quick shot and hardley time to set up something you did very well!!!!!
TFS ;-)


Hi John, I like how they managed to give you a smile even in the middle of their song. Nicely composed, good skin tones and well presented. TFS,

Hello John.
You sure are too kind. Or was it just to have a word with the good looking Ladies ?
Lovely looking 'twin portrait'. Hard to see who is who ?
Groeten van Jan

Hello John,
Not one but two beauties..!
Nothing less for Mr Tulip, hehehe...
Good double portrait of lovely girls, I'm sure they are happy for this!

Hoi Sjonnie,
To be honest (and I'm always :-) this is a perfect dual portrait, really excellent how the lighting (or the lack of it) is used, absolutely stunning my dear friend from het Haagje. Superb framing as well, but this is usual for you skill. Anyway my friend, again a posting which is a joy for the eye ;-)

Hi John

Just FYI...are you aware you have had an image of yours added to this theme http://www.treklens.com/themes.php?offset=1&thid=2956 where you are accused of "perpetuating nasty gender role stereotypes and myths about women and men"...

Beautiful portrait captured. Eccelent sharpness and details.
So that's how you do it, hey??? Show a puppy pleading look :-).
Well done

HI Bro, another nice double portrait! Well taken, they have nice smiles. Good close-up!

Take care, sis :)

Hello John,
