While doing my shopping in Boracay, I came across this novelty shop selling artworks of a Manila-based artist. What caught my attention though was the beautiful mother and daughter who were watching the shop. Unfortunately, the little girl just woke up so she was not in a good mood. The mother though didn’t mind my camera. This was my only shot of them because the little girl even bowed her head even more after this shot. Well, in a way, this shot embodies the demure, playful and shy character of a real Filipina.

Again a fine "daily life" portrait. You come well out with the good light setting.

J'aime vos photos Manuel, elles sont naturelles. Les personnages oublient le photographe et c'est ce qui donne cette sincérité.
I like your photos Manuel, they are natural. The persons forget the photographer and it is what what gives this sincerity.

Nice shot again. This time I have to say that the black frame adds a lot to it. I wouls have liked the kid to look up... but it doesn't work out like we want all the time. It's still a super picture.

Nice photo! Good composition, I like the fact that the mother and child are looking in different directions. I also like the space on the right. Great, warm colors. Well done!

Although this not being your best portrait you still can keep a fabulous light and feeling on it. Very nice.

A very good shot. I like the mother's eyes. I made a WS.

The light is the most important element here, and you used it perfectly Manuel!
Nicely tightly framed portrait. Lovely work...

The difuse background enhances so well the magic light of the foreground mother and daughter main subject.
