This mask thing is creepy. Erasing the natural beauty of the world. Redo without the muzzle.
Perhaps you need to look for the deeper beauty here....such as caring for others.

And nice shot, Ginos!

Happy Thanksgiving. Hope it was a good one. Hope it was joyous and where surrounded by family and friends and hopefully even sang and danced together as should be.

I understand why you shot with the mask but as another said it is kind of creepy. Maybe it is because like everyone else I am tired of the Covid and don't need reminders. That said you have the eyes spot on.


Stay healthy.

Wow, you are brave. That was me and you can see a few responses it garnered. It was just stating my opinion. I am not getting involved in any more of these slippery slope issues on here. So I'll just slink away again. Going back to commenting on nice bird and flower photos. They don't have masks...yet.

Lovely, topical portrait. You can tell the eyes are smiling.
Works great in mono.

Reality can be beautiful and also scary.
It's not just about photographing beautiful things, sometimes, even if it's hard, you have to look for beauty where it's hardest to find.

Masks are ugly, but underneath is life, almost always...

Life must be beautiful... take care, colleagues, and thank you for your comments.

A close up quite closed, a beautiful model, you can see the smile even when her mouth is covered with the mask.

Good tack to BW and sharpness in the right area.

Her eyes are beautiful, the mask makes it easier to focus on them without distractions.
I like the tight crop, and the BW processing

I've always noticed eyes, whether the person was masked or not. Since COVID, I have seen a few people with incredibly wonderful eyes, I've actually wanted to do a similar series, but haven't made the time.

In Spain it is said that the eyes are the mirror of the soul. Thanks!
