    I think she likes you

    I think pensive suits her best. She looks better in her pensive take.

    I like sungai gabai. Its the nearest decent waterfall around my area (Cheras). Usually hang out near the top(ranch area), where there is a rock that can be used as a slide

    Paul Tan: Cool, it’s a good natural look for Joey I think.

    kris: Wide angle portraiture!

    James: Who could resist…

    Jonathan: Yah I agree, the light is also nice in that shot and she looks relaxed. Yah Sungai Gabai isn’t too far from your place and the water slide part at the top is fun!

    🙂 🙂 🙂 Sungai Gabai is a great place, but it is so jinxed. Ive been there ..3 times maybe? And all 3 times my friends and I would have something float away (lost). From specs, to underwears, to slippers. Yikes…jinx

    Joey’s got the very nice chinese features. I bet she’s real fine face to face

    She’s Hot!!!!! Don’t know much about photograph, but do know more about girls. HOT

    Ah… this set of photos is better than the previous one 🙂 She looks more comfortable here.

    Now for some hopefully-constructive suggestions.

    Have you tried extreme angles? Maybe closeups with an 18mm lens or wider from a much higher or lower angle? While not classically perfect, such compositions are usually more dramatic – just like your wide-angled shot (“Slipping”) but maybe with the camera a lot closer?

    Also, I don’t suppose slow-shutter photography was possible (too much light and no ND filters)? Since it was at a river, I think it would be great to snap a shot of her with a nicely blurred out river running under her.

    Just my 2 cents

    Jonathan: Yah most of us fell on our ass at 1 time or another. A couple of cameras went in and one handphone was completely destroyed.

    Myst3: I agree, wouldn’t point my camera at her otherwise 😛

    Chris Chong: Yeah we’d gotten her to relax a bit, let her have a rest and get out of the sun a bit. I tried a few different shots, but the problem was it was super busy, and anything a little bit wide got a bunch of people or some pink slippers or similar in the background..I tried some slow shutter too, but Joey didn’t hold her poses long enough so she always came out blurred. Stopping down to f/16 or so got slow enough shutter to smooth out the water a bit without having loss of sharpness from diffraction.
