This is the second shot of Maurice that I mentioned yesterday, and while it's clearly not as lively as yesterday's, I like this one too. That said, I doubt it will be to everyone's taste, so feel free to tell me what you think.

Love 'em both, not sure which I like best but I do love the shadow on yesterday's.

I really like the look of this one to, it gives me a new dimension. I love your work!

Your a star!

Prefer yesterday's shot. It's fun vibrant and like Jennifer, I love the shadows. Nice processing in this one too but yesterday's shot seems to bring out Maurice's character, even though I haven't met him yet ;-)

I like the composition a lot. The diagonal lines work just perfectly.
I prefer this one in other words.

Thanks all.

Maurice: I'm glad you like this one too :-)

The texture of the dress comes out very nice! I in total like that old fashioned retouch. You didn't overdo it. It's just at the right amount!

This one is great! :)

I love the old time feel of this. The crispness of hm against the muted background. The angle is an interesting choice too, but it works. I prefer this to the other photo.
