LG and Foofie #2

You can probably tell that I'm not in a good mood of late. For those of you that are wondering what I mean, well I usually tend to spend a lot of time on my images when I'm a bit stressed or depressed. All is well, just a time when things are running out of control at my end. Gladly things are getting better, however I am suffering from a bit of exhaustion at the moment.

As promised this is another shot from this weekends shoot. What do you think?

this is brilliant!

my only nitpick is the somewhat untidy vignetting
Jide Alakija: Hmph! The vignetting is a function of the lens in this case not photoshop.
er, well thats pretty awesome actually in my book fellasmile
Jide Alakija: Thanks Tim.
Jide, this is absolutely lovely. The composition, lighting, tone. Lovely Lovely. Keep them coming. Glad to hear things are starting to look up for you
