[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I always feel that I am always holding in something with my post-processing. However, I noticed in my affiliation with many photography site that extreme post-processing, when applied appropriately, always yield good results.

Darn...I looked at my portfolio and re-worked this picture. Desaturated, curved, burned. dodged...there you go. I like the results. I should do this more often. FEAR....no more.

Very good result Manny! you really should this often... but then, your "natural" photos always seem soooooo gooooooood that you must be struggling with yourself!

Can I ask you a favour? see my portrait named "dancing beauty" i think it has some potencial but i've missed the background... can you look at it and tell me what could be done next time (maybe a WS)... don't need to rate Manuel


voici un portrait magnifique! j'adore. la photo est de plus très nette, et le noir et blanc avec les ombres est particulièrement bien vu!


It's an amazing shot I've ever seen ! I very much love her eyes with the light reflection. And also the 2 part of light ... It's great

I would've preferred more red for her lips and head cover. Also, her look seems to me more of a look of "expectation" than fear. Nice portrait once again.

Hello Manuel,
This is a very beautiful portrait..
The photography and the modelling are both perfect.. Result is wonderful..

THe face is so well divided in two by the light! I like the mood you create! It's excellent.. I like the posture...

I really like these shadowy portraits and the forms of light showing profile and the desaturation has worked really well.Its wierd how shadows can make images really stand out as more 3 dimensional.The mood and the expression captured is wonderful.

wonderful portait, perfect! wonderful contrast of lights and the left position of model gives something very special toit....it remember me the beatles cd coer of With the beatles....great!

Simply a great portrait - expression, light, composition, mood and everything just fits together perfectly. A great portrait. TFS

I like the results as well. Wonderful lightning and expression. I also like the tight cropping and contrast. Best wishes!

Thanks for sharing!
