Award Shortlist   


By SteveMoulding    
I've been away for quite some time now, but hopefully I will get more time to join you all again. I have missed being a part of the EPZ gang but due to ill health losing my job twice in one year, due to economic cutbacks they say and even possibly a third time to come, I have had a bad number of months to a year. I have, however managed to take a few photos in that time and even been paid for a few.
This is a photograph of a beautiful young lady shortly before her wedding. I have experimented with a couple of techniques and would value your opinions.
ps. she loved them all.

I hope you are all well and I'm sure have been taking thousands of superb photographs.

This is a tough angle to make the model look good. You certainly nailed this one. The portrait is beautiful.

It is something of a departure for your previous work and I find it an unusual but very attractive image.

I really like them all Steve, you show well 3 very nice styles.
The first is slightly pipping it for me but then so is v2 for the softness, which is something well used in portraits to give a nice dreamy affect especially on high key images.
Lovely model too Steve.
