A final portrait in this series.

I am off on Tuesday for Costa Rica for 8 days. Its time for Spring Break and I really need the time off! I will queue up a new series and hopefully when I get back I will have some shots of a new place :)

Good portrait good colours enjoy your break
A good colourful portrait Charles..Enjoy your break.
Wonderful and colourful portrait!
Its a good final portrait, enjoy your trip. smile
here the skin is too red Charles. A good portrait also involves the right skin tones. If I couldn't fix the strong colours in an image I would try to work in in B&W.
Excellent candid portrait, Charles.
great portrait Charles, have a wonderful time in Costa Rica
This is brilliant in both hue and composition. You were clearly inspired in India . . .
