Wonderful, Ada. I wish my archives had images of quality like this just waiting to be posted.

High emotions, mournful expression, a myriad of possible reasons for such sadness. Wonderfully composed and lit, it speaks volumes to me.

Superb portrait smile
Ada Emihe: Thank you so much Floog....so thrilled that you like.
And it is very good too Ada - a real tear?
Ada Emihe: lol....Thank you so much Chris...it looks like a tear right? If it does...then I have done something right. lol

solid work.

that tear is too 'perfect'...didn't you place the drop at the lacrimal edge of the eye? tonguegrin
Ada Emihe: Thank you so much Draw. lol.........lol.....na you know.
She certainly doesn't look happy, but like Chris I'm wondering if you caught her in a moment of real sadness, or whether the tears were applied. Either way, it is a powerful portrait.
Ada Emihe: Thank you so much Ian...You see the sadness...now everone is happy.

Very well done this portrays great feeling Adasmile
Ada Emihe: Thank you so much Tracy....tell Ginnie I miss her.
No wonder she looks sad...you just squirted water at hergrin

This is a lovely portrait but the tear does not look quite right, shouldn't it come from the other side of the eye?
Ada Emihe: Now Mr Phillips, I would never do such a thing....squirt water at a beautiful girl like that. The tear is a tear Bill....and it is coming from the other side of the eye...look again tongue

what the hell did u use to shoot this? what camera? excellent stuff. Its near perfect, my only niggle is the model doesn't seem to convey the emotion you are trying to portray, but thats just me.
Ada Emihe: Stoked that you like it.....I used a nikon D80 and a 85mm f/1.8 lens. I agree with you Asiko...I took so many shots to get that certain mood that worked effectively with the tear. I do like the image now afer it had been sitting in my archive for 3 months. Thank you so much.
