This is my mother, again. She has appeared in my The Year You We're Born and For Sale challenges images. I want to thank her for her cooperation and support whenever I ask her to be my model. Thank you ma, I love you.

---------------------------------------------------------
It's really hard to edit images in a non-calibrated monitor. I own one. Images viewed on my monitor seems a bit underexposed and the details are hard to see. With my recent entries I've received comments such as overexposed and underexposed images, lack of contrast, etc., as a result of my estimation. But now I've quite learned the technique of estimation. lolz. Hope my post-processing "estimation" works well with this image. But still, I think I've slightly overexposed the upper cheeks and the forehead. Waaaaaaa...
------------------------------------------------------

I don't expect this to score high. I just feel happy entering my mother's portrait in this challenge. :)

I really loved this photo in the challenge. I'm so glad it finished so strong -- but I knew it would! Congratulations on a top 10 finish.

Lovely shot. A little too hot in places but overall I like the contrasty effect. Back to bump you up to 8.

Very compelling | I wish you had managed to preserve some detail in the head scarf, though...

I like the prespective but the hot spots on her cheeks and nose really detract. I might crop out the bottom two fingernails as well.

Great photo, though the white has lost all it's detail.

I love the expression concept... but the lighlights are too washed out, missing out detail from the robe, forhead and cheeks
