Colour version. I think this one might actually be better as the b&w process seemed to accentuate the eye shadows and make her look ill.

Shot while geocaching this afternoon. Ambient light only, could have done with a subtle fill flash but didn't have one handy.

    Love the colour one!
  • David de Groot said:
    Thanks Nicole :) Still not studio quality or anything, but not bad for a quick shot in the bush.
  • Xenedis said:
    Yes, this is a great shot, too.

    Nice, soft lighting. She seems a little more cooperative as a subject than she was the last time I was in town. :-)

    This is great Dave. Lovely, soft lighting and great eye contact. The subject's OK too!
  • David de Groot said:
    Ah well I caught her doing something else. We were primarily out geocaching, she'd just found the cache so I got her to pose with it, then cropped out the cache container ;-)
  • David de Groot said:
    Hey thanks Gareth :) She's been quite self conscious lately so it was nice to get a reasonable pose out of her.

    find many caches?

    Seen on your photo stream. (?)
  • David de Groot said:
    Two and a half found of four attempted in about 2 hours. How did we half find a cache you ask ? Well it was a mailbox type cache so although we found it, we couldn't work out the clues on how to get inside, so I'll count that as a half find ;-)

    B&W version has an almost -ethereal- tone to it, and you're right about the eyes of course.

    This version is great. I'd love to geocache sometime, but I haven't managed to talk Cyron into bringing me along yet :)
  • David de Groot said:
    That Cyron, he's such a slacker ;-)

    Hi to Kara, and to her Dad, I think you will have boy trouble !! Great portrait in my opinion
  • David de Groot said:
    I'm sure she already does !

    Hi Helen! Given she's currently shopping for her 3rd boyfriend, having already broken 2 of them (at 12!!) (I do tell her she should look after her toys ;)) I think we can be sure of that :)

    Hi, I really prefer the coloured version. It gives all respect that her beautiful eyes deserve.

    Merci :)
