[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Caught her while she was relaxing, leaning against a huge rock, taking a moment alone.

Due to the fading light, and hiding down in the shadow of this rock, my shutter speed is fairly low here (1/50 at a focal length of 200mm!) and so I had to lighten the image a bit and sharpen it as well.

Hola David, es una bella foto, me gusta el desenfoque que resalta lo importante de la imagen. Tanto la composicion como los colores son acertados.

Un saludo, nanita

This is a beautiful portrait. The limited depth of field works well the background goes well with the model's skin tone. In fact, it appears she is nearly a part of the red earth behind her. Yes, I like this very much.

1/50 with an IS lens is no problem, as long as the model stands still, David ;o). Beautiful model, beautiful portrait. Outstanding Dof here, I love all the brown hues in the picture. The woven blanket provides a very nice contrast.
Well done, TFS

nice dof. color tones are exceptionally good too.. the model's expression seemed to be in deep thoughts over something she saw. tfs


Another stunning portrait, well composed and with beautifull sharpness and depth of field. I'm really enjoying this series of yours!

Her features and expression are so strong - although she looks like she's planning how to sneak away from Dad for a night clubbing with her friends ...

Outstanding work and compliments to your model also.


good colours
good POV
good mood
good framing
nice pose captured
beautiful portrait

Nice portrait.
Good colours, and DOF.

Well done.

David, I have really enjoyed a tour of your gallery, what strikes me is the diversity of your photos! Your portraits are a real strength and i really like this one - it looks a little stagged, but i really don't care because it's so good! well done......mark
