Masked Smile

I've just recently moved address and haven't yet been able to sort out an internet connection there yet. This is a test upload from my laptop. I'm using a T-Mobile Web'n'Walk card to connect to the internet. I don't have a good internet connection with it as the data is throttled via a server to improve the connection speed. Basically the server reduces the image resolutions of all my downloads and maybe uploads so that the connection can be improved.

As I can't see this image properly I'm relying on you to tell me if it's pin sharp at your end. If not then I'll have to upload it again via a proper internet connection somewhere else.

"Words are not enough" - Art Exhibition
Get your tickets now!!!
Tickets on sale here

My very good friend BolanleDinah has been working very hard on an Art exhibition for charity. She approached me to contribute some of my works for auction along with some other artists. The title of the exhibition is "Words are not enough" and you can see more details of it here. I strongly urge you all to come as you'll not only get a chance to see good work in 3D but also a chance to give to charity. Tickets are on sale on the website through the "buy now" link at the top.

yup, pretty sharp...and its pretty damn good too...
Jide Alakija: Oh good. That's very nice to hear. I think I've been in a very good mood havin' taken a big break from photoblogging. I'm looking forward to returning soon with some fresh inspiration. I realised that I wasn't inspired over the last 6 months or so before I took a break, now it's all coming back.

lovely photo Jide
btw...painting is ready
Jide Alakija: Oh fab...post it or send it...take a photo of it...let's see it.
Perfect lighting
I love this shot bro and I've missed ya but this is not to clear on any of my monitors ( I've checked them all and they have come up a little flat ). We have a range of Apple, Lacie and NEC monitors here but the framing and lighting are spot on, hope the class work is going as planned.

Jide Alakija: Hmmm....okay well maybe you've got the same card as I do. grin

Work has slowed down again but will pick up soon. Can't wait to start photoblogging again.
Nice !!!
Cute shot Jide, glad its all coming back!

Dude, will you stop slagging the exposure and comment on my writing?! (writer's tantrum here!) Oh compliment taken and the page will be printed out for posterity to see and marvel at my beauty. smile

Lovely capture Jide! It is indeed pin sharp. Who did the make-up?
Jide Alakija: I must stress that this was taken at a party not in a studio hence the reason I blacked out the rest of the clan, so you'll have to ask Fifi that one.

Re: your writing....madam...you right a lot. Me dyslexic, I hate reading. I'm going to print it off and read it on my next tube journey, JOKE. I'll have a look and comment about it once I'm done...could be done later tonight judging by my reading speed.
It looks sharp to me. Interesting and fun portrait.

It's a lovely picture Jide, and it seems clear and sharp enough on my monitor.
