  1. bet some pictures are really good, as the work of the photographer, such as a photo with Shariz Theron. I liked the legs of skier)))

  2. Yes, that’s when the photo ordinary girl – a masterpiece, it is more impressive than the photo Clooney in his typical manner.

  3. Theron in the picture looks hunched, style of dress and posture make it the top (shoulder) more massive than the bottom
    I sat for a long time looking at the photos .. gorgeous colors, the same dress, Theron is stunning in itself

    But she found the camera angle, leveling all her charm and beauty of posture.

  4. Support … all photos liked what it is less what it anymore and only Shariz not at all. Looks like a session rich aunt clumsy, which really want to have a professional staff of the famous photographer, but the photographer was being abused
