    WOW

    I wouldnt know where to begin in a studio, which is funny as ive lost count of the studio kits ive sold.

    What I love about this shot is that fact that it doesnt looked 'staged' the smile is sooo natural. which makes the shot for me

    Well done Mansi ANOTHER masterpiece

    I really like this shot, you did a great job... handled the glasses perfectly, and it is a very natural sweet smile.

    My only CC is to color correct a bit... warm her up. Here's an example... I'll take it down if you want... I really love this shot... it is *very* nice.

    My only comment is the bright part in her mouth and a little reflection from her nose ring (god I hope thats a nose ring). They seem to distract me a little. Maybe photoshop them out?

    Other than that and the adjustments in the post above, I reckon you have a cracker there.

    Excellent. I am a bit dissapointed to notice that the photo you uploaded had been removed. But thanks to Sylph and Smith.
    You got such good portrait casually. What lens do you use for portraits? As per your camera, I was informed that it's 350D. Would like to know about your lens too.
