Award Shortlist   

Botox, Busses, Frame & Train.

By lifesnapper  
Hi all and many thanks for your much appreciated response to my previous image. Smile

Today; something new from Rochester High Street. This young lady looked as if she had come straight from the gym. She said that she didn't look good enough for photo's at the time but kindly agreed to let me photograph her anyway.
I'm not a big fan of Botox because nine times out of ten it's over done and the ratio between top and bottom lip is rarely correct in my opinion. I guess it's one of those Marmite things. Smile
(The busses and train our in the reflection, by the way.)

More from my latest Rochester visit to come later.

All the best to all,

John Smile

Love the opener, so beautifully balanced between poser and poster.

Botox or not Botox, that's a great photogenic face

Yes she does look like she's come from the gym, but she still looks great. A natural.

An opportunity well taken. A photo well taken. Composition spot on.

Award winning stuff!

Great shot John. You’re not tempted with Botox then! 😉

Lovely girl and she would be beautiful without that additional lip fill but it is good to live in a country where personal choice is still an option.
If it gives her more confidence then what the heck?

Lovely lead in this set John.

Have a good day.

If this is botox, she already has the odd negative and unreal appearance of botox either done poorly or overdone.n Here eyes dont smile.

Botox get a bad rap in cosmetics, however its a fantastic pain reliever used to deaden muscles and nerves in chronic pain conditions and has been for many years before it appeared in the cosmetic industry.

I must agree with Tony here, the relationship of the lass to the poster is excellent.

Costa Rica is famous for its cheap plastic surgery - should those words ever go together? I stayed in a backstreet B&B where many recovered from the surgeries. That alone was enough to turn me off. Then there was the guy who had botox treatments and his teeth whitened to where they glowed in the dark. When he smiled nothing moved but his lips. It was hideous.
