THE POWER OF A SMILE

"All the statistics in the world can't measure the warmth of a smile." Chris Hart

A beautiful smile. Not just a smirk that barely hangs on the lips, like a nuisance outcast, but a hearty smile that reaches and touches the eyes. A genuine smile that has the power to bring joy and cheer into your otherwise ordinary or even drab day. A bright smile that reaches out, touches the depths of your soul, warms you up inside and out. A lovely smile that tells the one being addressed that they genuinely matter. A contagious smile that makes your heart flutter, your soul to dance, you lips to have a life of their own, breaking into a reciprocal smile.

Face today with a smile.

"Wear a smile - one size fits all." Anon.

Some of you may wonder who this lady is or how she came to smile so....

Smile, you may just find that out soon.

You impress me daily. You've clearly got a knack for using the tools at your disposal to best advantage. Composition is tight and focus and exposure are perfect. Do NOT give that camera back to Suby.

This could only be improved if we could see the sparkle in the lady's eyes. I wish she had just turned this way a bit.

And yes - smile! It takes less effort to smile than it does to frown. This lady clearly smiles often.

With such a smile you should change your ShMood ! smile
That looks like a "conversation smile," i.e. a smile offered while speaking with someone. I'm not to fond of her coat.

As always a lovely shot. Soo proud of you and lovely to see you sharing yet another talent of yours with the world. This is a lovely street shot. A Suby type of shot I would call it. Taken just minutes after handling a new lens for the 1st time, double impressive, and I know it was not a fluke cause you got more lovely pics than I did smile

Really looking like it's time for Suby to buy that 5D or the dreamy Mark II.

Keep up the wonderful work babes.

Love U

Subomi.

P.s
I know there is more when it comes to the writer side of you, so give us more. WE WANT MORE WORDS smile
She reminds me of Princess Diana. Great potrait shot, lovely smile.

Nice, curious though...
1. Can you provide some insight into what processing was done etc?
2. did you use photoshop at all to "touch up the subject?

The quotes/words you post per each pic, sometimes takes away from the "creative effect" that goes into the photograph. So you should try and balance both of them out properly.
P.S: Good job!
