You are by far one of my favorites here. I love the tone of this shot. It is beautiful and painterly. Congrats.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Actually, when I submitted this shot, I never thought it would ribbon. I need a confirmation and a friend told me it will do well. I showed it to the mother of the girl in the background and she was almost in tears. It must be good, so I said. But the best friend connection is not so strong. Thus, this getting a ribbon is really a big thing for me. Finally, I have one this year. Now I can take a rest for a while and concentrate on my work...

Thanks to you all for voting this high...no 1s and 2s...yeheyyy!!!! Thanks to all those who chose this a s a favorite. I am getting farther and farther from my subjects and including more and more context. Your appreciations are helping me achieve a kind of portrait for me. Thanks everyone.
03/23/2005 12:09:51 AM
Well Done, Pare.

I believe an 'I told ya so' is in order, but I'd never be like that :D

What a surprise. In challenges that focus on capturing the emotions of people, you only leave two ribbons to compete for. Congrats again.

The captured emotion of Librodo and the soft tones of Grigrigirl combined into one of the most skillful portraits I've seen here in a while. The DOF guides you straight into that girl's eyes and keeps you there. Easy top 5, if not a ribbon.

Wow! Love the clarity and lighting. The expressions are very candid and unique. It's unscripted, un-posed....something only a great photographer with comfortable communication with their subjects can obtain. Outstanding work. Should finish high :)

03/17/2005 04:22:38 PM
Love the colors, the exposure is beautiful, the composition and pose is really evocative. However, the skin textures look weird and plastic and removes me from the verisimilitude of the scene.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/17/2005 09:00:32 AM
I like the DOF. Just perfect as per my standards. Did you get it from the camera or was it a post processing thing? Good snap.

Gorgeous shot Manny. Soft, beautifiul colors and I don't know what you did with the post processing but the skin tones look almost like some kind of paint. Looks great. What a wonderful espression you caught too, just perfect. Fraction of a second either way and it would be lost.

This is beautiful. Looks like a painting. I can't say that the best friends theme is real obvious here, but it works. I think the crop might be a bit too tight. I would have liked to see a bit more space on the left maybe framing in her arm with her hair.
