Best photos of Maria's face...
I don't care when, or where, just looking for photos of Maria to combat this attitude, and this is not the first time I have read it from someone. No disparaging remarks, please. Just the proverbial picture worth a thousand words....
The problem with Maria is her face. Yes, her face is kind of OK, I would say, but it's very, very plain and simple. She has no fashion model face. There is no magnet in that face. There are no unique features. No magnetic eyes, everything is very generic and overly simple to the point of boring. I would have a big problem trying to capture something magnetic in her portraits. I can't see an angle where I would be able to find something interesting. Another thing with her face is that it doesn't look developed or matured.
The eyes are fundamental in photography. Absolutely fundamental. And Maria's eyes are blank. They say nothing, they don't draw any attention.
Everyone is entitled to their opinion....hopefully, some of you will disagree with these.
