She is very pretty - does not look asain at all.

I agree. I assumed she was Eastern European before I started reading. Either she has had plastic surgery, or she is partly Caucasian. The deep set eyes and large nose are very western.

Xinjiangese are genetically related to the north-western Europeans, as DNA tests have proven on ancient mummies dug up in Xinjiang. Perhaps her ancestors are from there.

As for the "white trash" comments below, I note this forum is as racist as it has always been. Is there no moderation here? Or is racism only something that white people perpetrate?

When people ask if Chinese people are racist, I just direct them to this forum and let them decide for themselves.

One of my old photographer friends just told us on facebook: "When you photograph someone in color, you're photographing their clothes. When you photograph them in B&W, you're photographing the person."

I couldn't agree more.

I would disagree (talking about portraits). At list not as a general rule.


About thread itself - heavy makeup, a lot of post-work, but still beautiful Asian

Asian girls want to look more like Caucasian, while Caucasian poses for a Asians... :)

It looks like 3 of the 5 were not in black and white. Maybe no full blown color but not black and white.
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?
