Hidden Beauty

My little sister. Only she isn't so little anymore. Very often, i find myself staring at her and thinking how she's fast becoming the beautiful woman i always thought she'd be (you should see me stare down guys checking her out - i go "she's not even 18 yet!"). However, although Yewande's quite the stunnah, it's more of what i think of as "the incorruptibe beauty of a quiet and gentle spirit" which is priceless and cannot be bought over a counter. She's one of those people that make whose inner beauty shines through to what's outside.

That's what i tried to convey with the PP. She sort of fades into the background so only the bit of her face that's exposed to the light comes through - unfortunately i misjudged the light - it's a bit harsh on her face and shoulder. I put this picture up because there's something i reallly like about  it as it reveals so many parts of who my sister is.

Morenike Olagbaju: Really? i wasn't go to post it because of the overblown patch on her shoulder. i'm really happy you like it. Sheesh! now i have to do better...
I can really see you getting better at this smile
Hey, I would say you ran into a little pixel trouble. Nice shot though, your sissy is cute though a piece of her sort of melts away. I think that also gives it a ittle tinge of mystery. We could dream up the part of her we cant see. You learning swiftly.
Morenike Olagbaju: Thanks Manuel. You're right - i was going for some mystery here. However, under no circumstances should there be dreaming up parts of my LITTLE sis' that you can't see smile.
Morenike, Yeah I got stuff for you guys will soon be posting ok..Then you can slaughter me. LOL. have a nice day aight.

You know now I am scared, if you are coming up with shots with such good compositions, whats going to happen when you indeed get a "proper" camera? Run Suby out of town? Nooooo I am the DADDY!!! tongue tongue tongue

Suby.

Your sister is cute
Morenike Olagbaju: You, run out of town? Well, maybe when pigs fly...

An intelligent composition. A lovely play of chiaroscuro. Hey you have an eye for this thing...my thoughts...i think you should get a manual camera and learn how to set timing and lighting controls so that you can develop your skills. it'll be worth it.
Morenike Olagbaju: Thanks. I'm working on getting a camera.

p.s. You know about chiaroscuro? Perhaps you and Mr. Skee should have a chat.
