You get the best visitors John ;-)) Nice work! CHeers
Many thanks to all of you. It takes two to tango - she's a wonderful young lady, so easy to get on with and to photograph. Thank you once again, Michael particularly for those very kind words ... I'm having fun .. maybe it's contagious .. :-) Actually, a little secret too .. she is also an amazing photographer .... I hope that she develops that gift when she goes back home to Taiwan.
I love this one , The blue background with that warm lamp , combined with the calm model with the glass in hand , give a great peaceful mood
Just beautiful! Excellent work, John. Alberto
frontal, outdoor... yet the model is at ease. your ability to make your subject feel comfortable is my personal favorite element of all your work. This photo is just another fine example of it.
Good relaxed expression and I like the use of the blue toning to contrast her from the background. Nice work.
Thanks Harvey, I guess they help by putting me at ease too .. it's very much a shared thing.
John, The model, the pose, the color and the background all work together to yield an excellent image. Jim
Good work !!!!!!

As Alon and Harvey (and several others) have already stated, this photo is an excellent example of 2 signature elements in your style: One, (as seen in much of your color work), is the wonderful combination of cool background/ambient colors mixed with gentle warm lighting on the model. This is something that I particularly like about your color work. Second, is how remarkably at-ease and comfortable your models seem. In so many of your photos, the ladies really seem to be having fun working with you. You write about them with such respect and admiration, too... It's clear that you develop an excellent rapport with them.
I love the lighting. Very nice.
John, Excellent. The royal blue in a dream effect in the background. The glass in hand and the little tattoo. Very poetic. Simply outstanding.
Excellent work with the complementary colours, nice looking girl in a good pose, great work as always. Best regards Tore

The bluish cast and the even light look great here!
A visitor from overseas .. First visit to Paris .. and all the mysteries that it holds .. with the inevitable passage through Disneyland on the way .. :-)
