[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is Theresa, a girl I met in Boracay last year. (I have posted 2 other pictures of her in TE (you can see here and here).

Selling a beauty product, I asked her if she could pose for me. She was a very good model. She has a dark Malay skin but has streaks of Spanish feature in her pretty face.

Recently, she wrote to me informing my that she was in a dilemma of whether to work as a flight stewardess of Philippine airline (she was called for a training) or migrate to the U.S.

I am wishing her all the best.

(Auto adjustments, USM and converted this into sepia)

Nice composition and lighting. I really like the highlighted texture under the hat. The skin tones are nice and soft. Well done.

A very nice and well composed shot.
The detail and texture of her hat are great.
Good use of light and shade also.
Excellent,well done.

great framing. beautiful model. fantastic work from the photographer.!!!

Really beautiful! I like that the background disappears in the light, that's why sepia was a very good choice, in colour it wouldn't work this much I feel. I just compared to your previous portraits of her, and on those you showed a cute girl, but here there's the attractive woman. Congratulations Manuel!

Well...i think you´re getting an expert on both portraits and BEAUTIFUL women ;) Another great one Manuel..keep them coming!

Excellent, bravo Manny!
Absolutley gorgeous, very well composed and executed, the other shots are just as impressive, as always Manny, you never let us down with you excellence in portrait shots. :o)
Good work!

Manuel this is very very beautiful...I think this is one of your best women portraits I have seen..she is beautiful, her overexposed shoulder is very sexy, her strawhat balances this and it has a great texture besides making a beautiful diagonal composition..I loved this..thanks..

This is one lovely profile shot. Excellent composition and texture.

Superb framing! Your usage of the hat's lines is wonderful. All points to her beautiful face. My guess is the original was a bit underexposed for the face and you tried to bring it up and ended up overexposed the background but I think it is the right call. Sometimes overexposed just works better.

Whawww an other very good portrait Manny I realy love the light... it catch the eyes on her shoulder... so glamour... wonderful shot!

Love the glare and shadows, love the focus you give to her profile and inside of the hat. Love the way you align the curve of the hat diagonally across the picture and it also brings out the curves on her collar bone and shoulder that way. A fabulous shot!

One of your best IMHO.

Very nicely done Manny.

Amazing detail in the hat.

Excellent exposure. I wish to do something like this one.

Hey Manuel!
That hat, reminds me of Jackie Kennedy for some odd reason, and the overall tone is just very retro. The smile and the eyes really help the mood of the composition.

Great job, another one of yours into my favourites!
