I think I've got this all wrong. Most entries are falling into (a) hide or (b) beautification. In a misguided fit I decided to post up a first entry that showed my bad complexion.

I'm going to do glamourous poses for the final 2 entries :)
I thought yours was really good - a classic portrait shot, really well executed :cool:

No, you haven't got anything wrong. It's about great photography. Simple as that.

Thanks sir :) I wasn't fishing btw, I was just curious that there were 2 predominant styles emerging

I've got to say, the portraits from the ladies our outstanding, Aurora, Skim, Nina and Vintage are sticking out like sore thumbs for me....gonna be tough this month

Actually, I really wish I'd chosen children as my theme, (seeing as they're what I spend my whole time photographing these days, it was a silly move on my part)

That's a nice idea for a theme, although it might have proved a bit difficult for some. It's very difficult to point your camera at a kid, unless it's your own or you're around kids all the time and can take shots. If you don't have kids, it's a bit difficult taking photos of them. Even as a woman, I don't feel comfortable taking photos of other people's kids when I'm out with the camera – it could be even more of an issue for men and taken the wrong way, sadly.

well, you only have to click to see my opinion! :)

looking forward to the third...

(I still haven't made my mind up)
Thanks Nina, and thanks for your advice - which I may have to call upon again before the end of the month!

Great Nina, glad you went for this one, one of my favorites for sure. Sad it brings to an end your entries though - must have been a hard month choosing for you.

Yeah, was torn on 'Thirty', because I love the colours. But decided the composition was nothing special.

Have you seen our B&W's on the thumbnails? we look like Mr n Mrs mean and moody. LOL.

Where's your third? (no pressure like :p )

thanks again for your input.

Yeah I prefer the black and white, with the shadows it looks great. Your right it does look like we are sick of looking across photos at each other, you look like you want to kill me.

My third I haven't really got round to yet, taken a couple more you could look at but I still reckon I'll try taking some others.
