Challenge: Dairy (Basic Editing III)
Camera: Nikon D70
Location: Bangkok, Thailand

After two very low scoring entries in dpchallenge, I am going back to where I am very comfortable at...portraits.  For this "Dairy" challenge, I took a picture of Stella, an 11 year old girl acting her real age.  

Since this is a "Basic Challenge", my post-processing was really very minimal and was applied to the whole image all the time.  Sharpening was done in normal mode and curves was
widely used to achieve what i wanted to achieve.

Still in search for a good title as I post this. I won't be surprised if I change many times before the deadline. Initially, what i have in mind is "Sorry Mom...I Eat Your Ice Cream". Or should I go by "The Culprit". Let's see...

Well well well Manuel (sorry couldn't resist the rhyme)
Your work is getting quite predictable, but in a very pleasing way!
I see your photos and I can say "LIBRODO", although not a 10)% sure all the time, but my guess during the challenge was correct, as well as the guesses of many other fellow DPCers.
Once again, great shot!

She's a cutie... I like this shot but for some reason the milk doesn't seem right, if that's supposed to be milk? It looks a little like something thicker.. ice cream maybe? It looks like there's a fingernail mark on her upper lip - that's my only issue with this. Her eyes are lovely and the focus seems really clear. :) 6

What a beautiful face. Very good lighting and the skin tones are wonderful.

A classic librodo :) This one is really beautiful, it's so candid, yet it looks very professional. You certainly have a beautiful way to bring out the reds/oranges/yellows. Love the catchlights. The milk almost looks like yogurt or cream. I really, really like it that you didn't smooth her skin, that, in fact, you left the little blemish on her forehead - makes it so much more human. ~10

master librodo?
I will continue my comment based on the assumption that my ID of the photographer is correct-
I'm impressed by a lot of your work, and most of it is well beyond my ability to criticise. But this one doesn't seem to hold up to your usual standard of excellence.while technically well executed, the model looks disengaged, with a rather bland expression. Your photos often capture an air of grace around your subjects, but that is lacking here. I don't know if the white stuff is actually milk, but it looks strangely thick. 5 from me

The quality is nice. The girl looks kind of drugged. Nothing makes me excited.but otherwise it's really good. SHE HAS NICE HAIR.
