    Default Diva-Miss Singapore Universe 2010 finalists

    you can check out the finalists here:
    http://divaasia.com/media_photo/9191#photoDisplayDiv




    Here are the finalists...hmmm...I am sharing this because personally I feel the pose of models and the lighting for the shots are really.... bad! If this is some kind of "new technique", I hope some1 can point out to me...if not, I think the "shadow on the face" for most shots really don't and never work for me...

    Personally, I think many bros in the "Portraits and Poses" section do a better job than this...
    what do you guys think?
    *PS: I don't know who the PG is and I don't intend to name him/her...just commenting on the photos solely

    my first reaction is - she is one of the finalists???

    the photo says it all - the spotlight has missed her completely.

    Truth be told, sometimes, the photographer only follows orders and has little or no say in these affairs.

    judging from the shots, there's only the spot light in middle...seems like no reflector was used...coz if the model missed the circumference where the light spot is, she will be underexposed... and many shots are like that...and the one that I posted particularly "enhanced" the finalist's eyebag/eyeshadow...quite power sia...

    maybe tt's the prob...but if the organizer who instructed the pg really thot these shots were fine...then he is super blind...look at these:

    look at the icy rock-like hands....


    sexy gone bad...constipation more like it...


    shadow on her leg made me mistook her leg as hairy when without my glasses



    to me, she looks one of the prettiest...but the shadow! spoils big time! This kind really disappoint the viewer...aiyo....brought her potential down so much!

    They are pro photographer making $$ out of this shoot. but come back again, even if its not very well execute. They still get paid. So LL lor. Anyway , the organizer should reflect on the standard of the model. Seem like its going down. Maybe we should import "foreign talent" ....

    Sorry to hi-jack. The setting of using grilled background looked so familiar with one of the shoots I attended with a local photoshoot organizer. Maybe the organizer of the above Ms Universe shoot draw inspiration from the same photoshoot But the texture of the grilled design used is very distracting with the reflection and the uneven lines.

    OT, Miss USA is won by someone with Arab origins. Maybe it's time to open doors to Egypt, Palestine, Agfanistan, Lebanon, Kazakstan, Uzbekistan babes. Hopefully sometime in future, someone in Singapore will start looking like a beauty queen. The men in Sin need to spread their seeds beyond the Asian shores.

    her feet and hand got clipped off. Checkout the beehive on her head. Also checkout the expression

    I got nothing much to add on to this one except that the lighting does enhance the 33" bustline. But the photo just look weird with uneven exposure. Maybe a black and white might do for this one.

    ------------------
    I just have to say the background sucks. So does the wardrobe and the hair stylist. What does brown, earthy and flora tones have anything to do with cold hard metallic grills? These girls are also quite tall. How come I don't get that feeling with these photos? Also, they seemed to be sharing clothes. Must be a really low budget Ms Universe photoshoot.

    ManWearPants! Bro, i really nv noticed until you pointed out that they shared clothes.. My, tt really tells the budget the organizer hv after being taken off mainstream tv... No one wants to watch standard like this! Anyway, my vote goes to tt 33'' bust babe for sure!

    Not so wizardly after all. It doesn't take a photographer to see that the photos...to say it nicely...strangely taken.
