You know, my aesthetical sense feels a rebellion when watching this.
For lenses it doesnt really matter (I mean, it's easy to reference them elsewhere), but ruining your daughter's face with the logo is really a crime against the sense of elegance and beauty and the arts!! if Raffaello saw something like that done to one of his portraits, it would have dropped the easels and become a fisherman! Laughing
Can't you for once just place a normal, small and cornered logo like (for instance) I do?

Smile Done.

AH, finally!!!
It's like breathing fresh air, not to have that huge thing printed on your face (actually, on HER face)

Athena, the Goddess of the Arts, thanks you for that. Laughing

Attila, this is a beautiful picture and I don't say that very often. The lighting is superb and for me you've found just the right amount of softness. She looks possibly a little flushed - is that make-up?

I agree with Orio about the logo - much better now !

I can't make a reasonable contribution - but I have to say that this portrait is very very beautiful. Orio told everything that has to been said, I agree fully with him. Wonderful!

You have really a talent for portraiture, Attila. Sure you can use beautiful models and that is an advantage to start from, but it's only half of the way. The rest you have to walk with your legs and you do it really well. You make appropriate composition, great posing direction, and very tasteful light and exposure choices.
And you often make the final result to appear natural, which is the most difficult thing of all.

So kudos here.

Thanks God (and you) for that. I HATE make up in portrait photos, unless it's glamour/fashion, which of course is all about camouflage and it's a genre of its own kind.
I can not understand why people needs to hide their face behind makeup. It hides all the natural translucency of the skin.
If you are beautiful, you don't need to make up.
If you are not beautiful, the make up will make you look uglier on photograph in 99% of the cases.

That's right and most obviously, this pretty girl does not need any make-up!

This is your daughter, Attila?
I never would have guessed that you can produce such a beautiful offspring! Wink
Oh wait, maybe her mother is the pretty one. Wink

No, just kidding... I do not even know if you're a handsome guy or not!

But this portrait shows a charming young lady! That's for sure!

Of course, the only plausible explanation is she's adopted! Somebody

Yes I am so lucky with my kids, no teenager problems at all. We have true friendship instead conventional father-daughter relation.
