    I was at a wedding show this weekend, but there were very few brides there. Most people were there to see their uncle sister cousin friend mother brother in the fasion show. or they were there for the free samples. since there weren't many brides to talk to i took the opportunity (cause i was bored sitting there in the booth staring at the crowds eating there cheese on a toothpick and sitting infront of the runway totally disinterested in the fact that people were paying for advertising, trying to generate business...sigh) to take some shots of the live mannequins. They stood on stage for about 20 mins. kept me interested anyhow. i did ask the one girl to look down briefly, but mostly i just shot mannequin style. Fortunately i had the old camera and a flash on hand.

    I just jumped every single 0 comment post in this gallery so i feel no shame in bumping this one now. comments seem scarce these days, especially on a post like myalover's with 133 views and 0 comments. holy moly.

    well im still pretty much a beginner so i dont really have much to say from a technical standpoint, however, they do look good

    what caught me was there eyes. in every picture their eyes look beautiful and stand out. maybe its the lack of colors in the rest of the picture.

    i like them a lot. nice pictures

    alll good quality pictures but i think that 3 and 7 stand out from the group as being approaching a more excellent level, beyond technique there is an more artistic edge to those two.

    Before I read pattavina's post I was going to comment that 3 and 7 grab me most, particularly 3. Nice shots.

    interesting. 3 and 7 aren't the ones that grab me. 4 is mine, with 1,3, and 6 following (no particular order). what is it about 7?

    Gee, don't ask us to be ARTICULATE about our tastes.

    Number 7 looks innocent and seems to be gazing confidently into the future. Number 7 has depth and seems touched with sadness.

    I like them, but not sure about the PP... did u do something to the skin? It looks a little uneven, kinda blotchy. What technique did you use?

    Great work on the eyes though :) send me your technique for that ;)

    Poses and exposure are great, but the skin treatment, especially the bright, almost white facial skin in 5, 6, and 7 really don't work for me.
