My love, in in Tyler Park; Newtown, PA.

Your love has very pretty eyes, Gene. Nice portrait shot in landscape aspect. I like the red scarf and muted snowy background. #23517

Thank you very much Lem. It is a nice comment like yours that drives me to learn more about photography. #56815

This is a lovely portrait shot, Gene. You've broken several "rules" and taken lots of risks with this shot (landscape instead of portrait orientation; model is centred in the frame; model is facing straight forward, etc.), but each rule you've broken and each risk you've taken has paid off beautifully! The full front pose, for instance, helps to emphasize your "model's" wonderful eyes and also helps to create a mood that fits with everything else in the image. Very nice work! #56834

I think it's super, Gene. The scarf really makes the shot.

Face wonderfully framed in the vibrant red, against the winter background. Well cropped in landscape orientation, makes this a terrific shot. Congrats! #63479
