Plastic looking skin tone.
Distracting white hair on left side of forehead.
Lighting is poor with distracting hot spots.
Better make up could have masked some of the aforementioned shortages.

Renzokuken: I'm from Asia and i live in Asia.

The DP team said they "garnered some surprisingly open admissions"

but if you really take time and read what he said, it's basically all sarcasm and arrogance.

"If another company made a sensor that we believed to be truly the best quality, we would not hesitate to use it."

He's implying that Canon sensors are superior in every way and no one can compete with them. Did the DP team really failed to pick up his sarcasm while interviewing him?

You nailed it, most people here don't.

In reply to:

backayonder: As Photographers do you ever wonder what will happen to your images when you go to that great F stop in the sky? Do you worry that all those images laying dormant on obsolete hard drives will be thrown away okay perhaps it is just me then but I do wish that there was some sort of archive available for ordinary folk.

Now, that thought almost made me shed a tear.

A good thing would be an appendix to the will in terms of a list with all accounts and passwords to storage devices (i.e. google drive) and local pc/media servers. An unencrypted hard drive can easily be installed in a new PC.

Every time I go through old unprocessed pics I find new ones, interesting expressions, moments, etc. To print all that would be impractical at the time the picture was taken.

I went digital in 2001 so soon I will have roughly 1TB of data. It doesn't cost that much to store that (compare cost to all gear we buy) in a proper place and hand it over to the love ones when the time comes.

I had to turn the image to be sure. She is indeed very sexy and beautiful creature. I cannot see the full body but I have a feeling she's overall stunning :)
