Another Face of Asia Or another face IN Asia...

After the horrendous tsunami in South Asia, and the massive landslides in the Philippines, I wish to end this year by showing the beauty and life and promise of Asia. Happy new Year to everyone.

My niece Jaja. In between photo-takes, she giggled, laughed boisterously, prepped herself up, etc. She didn't know that that was what I was after...a candid moment.

Congrats on your top 5 finish!

Mnay thanks. I am especially happy because this is the firts time that i use a family member for the challenge...and I won a top 5!

Thanks. As far as I am concerned, it was a candid shot as i did it between takes. I have this printed and apparently, the teeth is not yellow as some of you commented.

Anyway, Happy New Year to everyone.

Manny

OK, this must be Manny. Good photo anyway. This looks posed, but I give you the benefit of doubt. Strange yellow cast to teeth.

Cute shot and beautiful colors. Doesn't need a border though...

Pretty subject with a beautiful contrast to the background colors -- a ten!

I like the composition, the pose, the saturation and the lighting. But the details look a bit smooth, too smooth. Agressive Neatimage smooth.

If this is truely not a staged shot, then it is serendipity and planning at it best. Excellent DOF use, and softening of skin...ah crap, it's just freakin awesome OK? Bumpt to a 10.

I'm sure you have got a lot of "posed" or "staged" comments. I really like the shot and hope people give you the benefit of the doubt.

Good luck in the challenge :)

Great candid... could crop in more

It's a beautiful picture, but it's overworked to the degree that it no longer feels candid, even though I'm sure it was. As long as you're working it so hard, why not whiten the teeth a tad? Lovely image, but for me it doesn't work directly to the challenge.

Gorgeous color and perfect soft focus. Great smile.

Beautiful model and wonderful photo. Doesn;t have the feel of a candid photo though as it looks as if she is poseing.

Very nice with the post work on this photo. Looks like an ad in a magazine! Was it posed though or truley candid? Feels like Hawaii.... Very cute girl.

exquisite.. wonderful focus, colors, composition, location, subject. what more could i ask for?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/03/2005 01:21:34 AM
Wow, this looks too good to be a candid! If it's a true candid (with made-up model and all), kudos! If not, shame on you...

I give you a 9, but very hesitantly! Nice photo, regardless!
