I like my Sony F707 more and more....
The girlfriends were walking along the alley (one of them has a small kid). They saw me takin photos and asked whether I make children's photos... I said - oh, I'm not a pro photographer... But I can try to make you portraits..
So this is one of them - her name is Natasha.

    You've done it again Yuri...

    You were and continue to be one of my biggest sources for inspiration. The way you work that Sony of yours, gives me hope and something to strive for with my 717.

    Man, Yuri, another beauty. How do you do it? I don't mean the photography, although that's impressive enough. I mean how do you find these models and get them to pose so nicely? That secrect is worth about a zillion rubles.

    For once, I have a suggestion. She is really great looking, but I think she her cheeks and the bridge of her nose is a little flat. The picture is so great that you have to be careful, it may be that if you change anything you will diminish it. But perhaps you should try this trick which I posted a year ago: http://www.dgrin.com/showthread.php?t=2069

    Do this before you do anything else (except maybe shadow/highlight). Then blur, neatimage, curves, whatever magic went into this. You may end up with more subtle definition in these parts of the face without giving up the soft beauty of the version you posted.
    If not now, when?

    I like the eyes
    but if I may make a comment, the middle of the face is a bit overblown/oversoftened.. But maybe it's just me and my monitor(s)..
    Great shot otherwise!thumb.gif

    Yuri...
    I'd love to see a small version of "straight out of the camera" next to your final post processed version if at all possible.

    She has beautiful eyes!

    I second that Yuri. I would love to see the shot straight out of the camera if you would not mind?

    I just don't understand how this guy manages to find the most beautiful women in the world just walking down the street.

    Yuri - excellence as usual! thumb.gif
