Correct me if I am wrong John, but is this a portrait of your daughter, the beautiful little girl on the beach? Samantha

John Adamson on November 10, 2008

Hi Samantha, Well done to spot this. She is indeed the same "little girl on the beach", just six years older.

Best wishes, John

I can't stop watching this gorgeous portrait, John. She is a beauty, and you made a great job!

Kindest regards from Chile.

Thank you Erwin. I was donig a bit of experimenting with slow flash to try and balance the lighting and was pleased with the result.

Best wishes from Indonesia, John

She is pretty. It seems your hand are shaking.

Is she a celebrity?

Cheers, Jeff

John Adamson on December 6, 2008

Hi Jeff, This is my daughter Amanda. The shake was due to experimenting with a slow flash setting to try to balance the daylight outside with the flash and still look natural. The camera should have been on a tripod.

Thanks for the description.

Hey John you old @%&@!! , You certainly got the chemistry right. You'd best start cleaning the shot gun because she is a stunning young lady. Keep well, Dereck

John Adamson on December 27, 2008

Hey Dereck, Thanks for your kind comments. I am keeping a good eye on her.

Hope you had a great Christmas.

Greetings from New Zealand, John

Hello John this is the first picture of you I ever see. The beauty here is your daughter Amanda as I understood. Great picture with wonderful soft light and of course a gorgeous model. I'm going to check out some more pictures at your gallery.

Greetings, Erik

John Adamson on December 31, 2008

Hello Erik, Thank you for your visit and all your kind words. Amanda is also happy to hear your comments.

Very best wishes to you for the New Year, John

Amelia Royan on February 14, 2009

She certainly is a beauty John. I need to check on the one of her as a little girl :)

Does she look like you then? ;-)

Greetings, Amelia

John Adamson on February 14, 2009

Hello Amelia, thanks for your kind comments. Amanda will appreciate it. Don't think I can say she looks like me but I really can't tell.

Greetings, John

John Adamson on May 12, 2009

Domi, many thanks for your lovely comments.

Best wishes, John
