Well I'm pretty sure I know which was yours from the free study (oops I meant people challenge - I guess I missed that completely !!! :)).- I commented on the image I thought was - but I hardly think that the fact that your work is easily recognisable is a problem - it simply means that your portraits stand head and shoulders above the shots most of the rest of us can manage to come up with.

hehehehe.... so to echo the sentiment - best of luck with your change of tack in the free study!

OK Manny - You have done pissed me off once again! LOL

There should be a law in place that prevents you from taunting us with you work.
You have once again proved you are one of the true Masters, and if these were NOT in consideration, we are all in VERY big trouble in this challenge. I can only hope in some way to be half as good as you someday, but somehow doubt that I will get to that point.

Take a bow Manny.

Wonderful portraits, thanks for sharing them with us :)

I am thankful for all the good commnets about my pictures of this girl. LORELIE is her name. I took more than 50 shots of her and I didn't know which one to post-process first. I was blessed with a very good warm light as reflected in the sand of the beach where I took that from. Nikon D70 rocks! And I used my new macro lens for these shots ...yes, Macro lens, 16mm 3.4 (my new one).

I will post more shots from my trip once the voting of current challenges end.

BradP...I may be better than you in portraits but you have more variety in your shots. I can learn a lot from you.

samtrundle...yes, you've guessed my shot once again.

others....many thanks for your motivation.

Peter M and Peter R...thanks for all the input!

Wow. The camera loves this little girl. Some people are just like that. :D

Manny, you have done very well with the portraiture work you have shown us here. It's inspiring and beautiful but I agree that it's exciting and important for you to try to expand your vision.

I would agree that these portraits are predictable both in subject and approach but only in the fact that many could easily identify these as beautiful "Librodo" photos.

I look forward to seeing what you do in the future!

As someone else said, I'd also love to see a tutorial where you run step by step through what you do to get these type of shots. I'm curious why I (and, it seems based on the comments, many other people on the site) can't seem to get the same quality of portrait. Disregarding for a second the great models/expressions/settings... I'm talking about the textures, etc. I find the detail of the skin on the faces to be especially beautiful. Do you usually use a macro lens as you did in these shots?

Yes, I think we'd all like to know more about Manny's post processing. There is another shot in the People challenge that is similar to Manny's style (I know who the image belongs to but I won't say till after the challenge), but the processing is obviously different- the skin isn't as smooth and luminous.

But then, that might be a Manny trade secret ;)
