This has to be a contender for Photo of the week, this is portraiture at its most outstanding.

Subject - very photogenic
Lighting - perfect,
The smoke - award winning!

A superb effort. Portraiture doesn't get much better than this!

5 Awards so far, very well deserved and hopefully many more to come. You really should put this into a few competitions, I feel a few richly deserved prizes coming your way, this has clicked with quite a few people!

Thanks Andrew again for your encouraging words, i will obviously do it if i get any opportunity to put it on a certain theme in any competition, today one of my images has become a finalist in an international competition called "Generation United", and i have got a mail from them today, but the result has still not been declared and hopefully according to them in this month the result will be published...

It doesn't come as a surprise at all that you are enjoying international sucess with your standard and images like this one. The very best of luck, I'm sure you'll do well, just enter everything and anything you can and you'll strike gold one day (if you haven't done so already that is!)

i may not be lucky enough to get even an HC, and usually even the standard of HC has become so high that this image can not even reach there...
