It's obvious SJ hasn't lost his touch, Susana ~ it's a lovely, luminous portrait. And your PS work is the frosting on the cake! Gorgeous! #3100437

Stanley J. Contrades 7/30/2006 12:12:53 AM

With those features you could easily pass for one of the hula dancers on any of the troupes here, Susan :-)! Excellent skin tones and composition to go along with the outstanding lighting! Come to Hawaii and learn how to weave a "haku" lei for your head!!
Great job, Sanjay!!
Much Aloha,
Stan #3100439

Rajesh Arora 7/30/2006 1:03:38 AM

My theory is different, beautiful word is open to all.

I've observed that many people are attractive but why they are attractive is difficult to define!!! They are not necessarily beautiful!!!

You are attractive with touch of beauty, this is a rare combination and you enhanced this feature by applying appropriate effects and tone in this portrait.

Your efforts are reflecting in this job.

Well Done!!!

This is my most recent picture taken by SJ. I played with it in PSE, converted into sepia, adjusted background and then struggled with the title. Then I remembered a character that I saw in a movie and came up with this title. Pls. let me have your thoughts on this.
