Malaika #2, A portrait

By huge demand I've been asked to put this shot up. This was one the of the photos that we took during the session. What do you think about it? It's a bit different from what I would normally put up.

it's a brilliant image

something about the transition between from light to dark on her face is a little untidy or artificial...can't place my finger on it
Jide Alakija: You are so right, yeah there is a problem with the transition...infact I don't think the image is right in the first place. Thanks.
Interesting portrait. It's a lot different than your other shots. I see a weird smudge pretty close to her nose though. Wonder what it is.

Other than that...different but the ALAKIJA style is still there.
Jide Alakija: Hmmmm....it's the stuff you don't see, yeah it's not my normal shot...it's always good sometimes to put something different to see the response.
