Curly from South Shields, United Kingdom

These light golden tones reflect the wonderful light that you had to work with. This is a fine portrait.

@Curly: Thanks so much. Actually, I had to do considerable work to salvage this capture - several areas were burnt out by sunlight and I used this to experiment with some new methods to go in and 'heal' burnout in a way that appears natural. It looks as though I succeeded and I really appreciate your commentary, Curly.

Denny Jump Photo from Easton, PA, United States

Absolutely Stephen, the light on your beautiful subject is magnificent. This is all around a fantastic portrait from the framing to the lighting, composition, pose and the viewer is drawn directly to her face...a very beautiful lady. GREAT job Stephen!!

@Denny Jump Photo: Thank you for the enthusiastic words, Denny. I love this image but I must acknowledge that Jesse is simply amazing in front of a camera. She is so fluid in her poses, aware of what she projects, and at ease with the process; that it would be an effort to get it wrong!

Marie LC from France

Luminous portrait and very very beautiful model. Her eyes are absolutely splendid !
