Krystal,
She is a beauty! Her arm creates great framing and compostition and intrigue too. very alluring perhaps it the right word, or mysterious beauty perhaps. Nice!

some time ago it would have been 'dynamite', or maybe 'boss' or 'cool', or 'fab', or outta sight'
or 'fine' or 'really bad'... I don't know what to call it, except for
'holy crap what a really nice photo'

You must have known when you clicked the shutter that what you were seeing was one of those magic moments we all hope for. I just spent some time going through your portolios. Two things strike me: one is your gift for using light as part of the story. The other is the feeling that you have made real contact with these people. They are revealing themselves to you, so that you are not just 'taking a picture', but there is a collaboration of mutual interest. Very inspirational Manuel! Congratulations!
