A Sucker For Romance

sorry for the cheeseball title, but it fits her well. :P

This is a portrait of my friend Brittini taken at the St George Pizza Hut, where we got free Pizza and Hot wings, it was excellent.
I love this photo because it suits, her, except that shes not talking...

The reason for emotive portraits gallery is because it is taken in attempt to suit her personality, and it dosnt fit well with the other portraiture gallerys. It is not under photomanipulation although alot has been done to it, the main and most important elements came out of the photography side rather then the computer graphics side.

I really want to know what the few of you who are familiar with my work think of these newly stylized images, I need to branch out into some direction. So advanced Crit welcome, and also those who dont know me as well. Because I would never get any comments if I restricted it to that.

I like the checkered "table" addition, it's a really good contrast.
I love that you made this as big as possible because I think I just got lost in her hair.
and then her eyes.

her lips are beautiful, the way they curve around the straw.

maybe you could've done something to make the water red, or some shit, to symbolize "romance", you know what I mean?

i'm not big on photography, so I can't give you advance technical advice.
however, this is really very good. :)

I do think it would be fun to go back and play with this as stock for photomanipulation. thanks so much for your comments!

hey i love it, the lighting spoils it a tad, cause her hair looks a bit green, but the image, pose and composition are awesome...nice work!

the original photo didnt really look so green, I added that. I want it to look intentional though. I was trying to get a slightly surrealistic feel in it.
