i like this one.

did you deliberately allow that much lens flaring
Ada Emihe: Thank you buddy....no it wasn't deliberate,,,, my first try with this sort of thing. Hope i do a better job next time.
Good grief! I must be getting oldgrin

The eyes look over processed...and I don't mean the lashes.

Sorry Ada but i don't like this one.
Ada Emihe: lol...no problem bill..no one can like everything...if i ever hope to make something off images like this, the eyes better be like that or I will be hungry grin. Thanks Bill
Those are seriously sultry eyes Ada
Ada Emihe: lol....sultry eyes Chris? Thanks so much.
It's difficult to change styles.Sorry Ada but this is not your best shot . The eyes are harsh.The right part of the background too bright so lacking contrast with her skin and hair. I like the mouth and chin very much. Nice to have you back I was missing you.
Ada Emihe: thanks Albert..I missed you guys too Albert...Hope you like today's image better. smile
Lovely model... but how uncomfortable those lashes look!
Ada Emihe: Thank you Ian.....the lashes are quite comfortable..u can't even feel them.

I probably shouldn't comment as I have little experience of colour portraiture, but the backlighting seems a little too strong. Whilst you can get away with this in B&W, here it seems to be giving a colour cast. Good to see you back posting though and impressed that you do the make up too ;o) Perhaps I should branch out as well ;o)
Ada Emihe: The backlighting is supposed to be that strong for this sort of approach... first try for me...I do hope i do a better job next time. Thank you Mike,...hope you like today's image.
Okay hold you breath, yo about to get it from us....


The thing is that WE REALLY REALLY REALLY LIKE & LOVE THIS ADA. Yes we said that smile

Okay tell you what we likE AND LOVE about this.

You stepped out of your comfort zone and tried something new, for your 1st effort this is bloody excellent (really jealous as we wish our own 1st few effort were any where as lovely as this)

As with images like this, we ask ourselves, "can this be used in some of the major magazines in the world" The answer we come back with is HELL YES.

Yes there are a 1 or 2 things you have to get better as time goes on, but DARN girl you are really smoking with this work. Editing is really impressive, lighting, very good, Capture/model pose extremely extremely perfect.

We just have to give you an almost impossible to achieve "We LIKEY LIKEY" from Suby & Sinem, and we duff our virtual hats to you Ada for being able to churn out this amazing work.

If this is where you are starting from, where you are going to is going to be very easy to get to smile
Ada Emihe: lol...Thank you so much Sub,,,, Lets see where this all goes. I pray it turns out great. Thank you so much guys.
I really love this Ada. Well done!
Ada Emihe: Thank you Richard for loving this. smile
After reading Suby&Sinem comment I have to say that I do not doubt for a second that you are going to be. No that you are a first class photographer whom I admire a lot
Ada Emihe: I pray I do Albert...Thank you so much.
hmmm not really to my liking but if S&S can say that about it then its hats off to you Adasmilesmile
Ada Emihe: Thanks Tim..lol...hope you like the next one.

S&S are the competent persons in order to give comments. My first impression is "Please, do not touch me (noli me tangere)", "only peeping allowed", and I hope that the lady can look as well as we!
Ada Emihe: Thank you so much Philine,,,,,,,... she can indeed..lol.Thank you.

I think this is a jolly good idea, but I'm not sure if I like the pale white cast across the picture
Ada Emihe: Thank you Ellie..hope I get it right next time, and hope you like today's image.
