    Nothing. I just keep them. It's a pleasure like any other.

    However, I expect to be able to make an exposition some day. Who knows ?

    Thank you Myra

    An exposition would be enjoyable. Have you thought of compiling them into a photo book? Even if it was just for your own pleasure, the profit (after paying for the printing costs) could go to a charity. It just seems like such a shame that they are not being displayed or enjoyed by the subjects.

    At the present moment I am sending them on the web for appreciation and eventual publication.

    However, there are so may - so many - images on the web with quality that mines are just a drop in the ocean.

    I think I do not have enough for a book. I also think that I would not sell the book. I am very pessimist am I not ?

    Charity is what is most needed in this country and also in Europe. I say no more

    Thank you for commenting again

    I would like it better if I could see her hand :chuckle:


    Are you burning the face in this shot or are you using light modifiers when you take these? I like the contrast in this one.

    Nice one, Antonio, as always. Very nice conversion.

    Do you have one where she is not looking into the camera?

    No. The photo was done with ambient light - large area of sky at left - and no flash, no reflector, nothing.
    All the work has been done on processing

    Thank you Ali.
    I am afraid I don't. I made just two or tree pictures and where she is always looking at me.

    These are all Indian portraits Richard, some older than others but all part of a set.
