Marvellous shot Mike, I see that the hard work is paying off. I envy you the ability to shoot people, I find this the hardest photography of all.
Stunning professional shot.

hi mike, wonderful image, stunning eyes! great clarity and composition, awesome portrait, well done,
Hey, where's the 'au naturel' approach, Mike... so soft!!
Except for those beautiful eyes, of course.
Hey bro, I'll be honest: that particular photo of Steve's is sublime perfection and IMHO unbeatable, so why even try?
Seriously, one point of attention for me: in all this softness, I think your model shows too much of her forehead, distracting attention from her eyes...
Points for sheer guts to even try and imitate Steve McCurry ;o).

Great Model and your work is absolutely outstanding here in creating this mood!
Hello Mike !
Great shot. First I tought you filtered the image too much. Since I know you, I think this lovely does have a real smooth skin and perhaps had make-up for the photoshoot.
Lovely thight composition and framing.

Excellent and very professional glamour photo.
A little too smooth may be. But it's right up there. Well done.

I definately give you kudos for trying, I don't think that image could ever be beaten. The model that McCurry caught... her eyes, oh good God they could tell a million tales. I'm sorry but that image, wow, to say the least I'm envious of Steve's talent. But! Having said that.
Though your image is not like his... it is good all it's own, a lot lighter in emotion, and well... very North American to say the least. Reminds me of Little Red Riding Hood. ;) Nice catch on all the smooth details of her face, and just a nice portrait... well done Mike.
Mike, short and direct: one of the best portraits I have seen here on TL. Work of a pro! I can learn from you (with pleasure!!)
The Silver Tulip! TFS and my 'hat off'
Hello Mike, superb portrait with stunning colours and sharpness. Great soft light on the skin! I like the close-up. She has beautiful green eyes!
Great stair! but it looks like the same kind of stair as when we are in the moon. I'm not sure that she is looking straight at the lens. Just my idea! :)
Great work! Take care, Yan :)
Truly stunning, Mike! This is truly fabulous. The colours are sumptuous, from skin to lips to eyes to scarf. The hard work of the past year is paying off in spades, I think. When do you set up your own studio??
(back with :)
A great photo!! What a sharpness!!! Wonderful! And the colours.... GREAT!
What do you mean by a Steve McCurry style??

Hi Mike. Soft and yet such delicate details. An attractive model, well cropped and those beautiful eyes. Something I probably will never attempt. TFS,
Many thanks for your comment on Duck Reach Track IV...did you receive my email regarding F stops and the Olympus?

Very quality Portrait. I think it's most suitable for cover page of a fasion magazine.
Thanks for share,
I had to come and see this picture after we met this afternoon. I do like it and I think you did very well with your treatment and her green eyes are very nice.
It was great to run into you this afternoon...quite a coincidence to be at the same place at the same time and that we manage to recognize each other!
