Have you noticed all the comments are made by the men !!Typical !! Enjoy boys !!!

Comment by: Big John on 26th August 2011 at 23:46

A real rose in a rose garden. A blue eyed blonde. A lot better to look at than the depressing derelict buildings we have had on photo of the day as of late. visitors will want to come to Wigan now to see our natural beauty.

Comment by: sandra webster on 27th August 2011 at 10:31

Comment by: John H on 27th August 2011 at 18:30

I saw this beautiful woman, in a beautiful location so I took what I thought was a beautiful shot. I photograph horses dogs cats, trees flowers, what is so wrong with photographing such a beautiful woman? & a very nice woman she was to. Thanks Natalie for the privilege

Comment by: Big John on 27th August 2011 at 19:05

Don't worry Natalie we can tell a beautiful woman when we see one. Sandra put your claws back in. Good photo John and well spotted.

Comment by: Jack on 27th August 2011 at 19:39

Now now Sandra, jealousy will get you knowhere..Natalie let your looks do the talking!

Comment by: Kenee on 27th August 2011 at 20:03


Those soles are a bit worn - time for a trip to Jimmy Choo's.

Comment by: Natalie on 27th August 2011 at 21:05

Wow .. Oh gosh I really didn't relise that there would be so many judgemental people !! ..

Comment by: Shirl on 27th August 2011 at 22:35

You look very pretty sweetheart ... much prettier than I was at your age ;)

Comment by: mike from leigh on 27th August 2011 at 22:37

For all the ladies who wanted photos of men look back at the 25th August photo, Ironman at Leigh. enough for you ladies. stop complaining when you see a pretty face.

Comment by: sandra webster on 28th August 2011 at 12:01

Sincere apologies to have upset you Natalie but if you read my comments you will see that I said that you were a pretty girl !!!!!! and as for me being nothing special perhaps your right who knows but it is a public forum where people do make judgements on the photo's presented and we are all entitled to an opinion be it right or wrong ... again I apologise for any upset that this has caused you ...

Comment by: Natalie on 28th August 2011 at 17:25

If you have not got anything nice to say you should not say it!!! Yes for the pupil .. but it clearly is not here to insult people, So before you open your mouth. DONT ok!!! you clearly dont know what your talking about saying my hair is fake how do you know .

Comment by: Sue on 28th August 2011 at 19:57

Sorry but it looks like Natalie's got a chip on her shoulger or maybe both.

Comment by: Natalie on 29th August 2011 at 12:55

Excuse me Sue but does these involve you ? Did I say what do you think sue . No I never so keep out of it

Comment by: Big John on 29th August 2011 at 17:22

There is nothing like a bit of controversy to get people talking.

Comment by: wigan lad on 30th August 2011 at 12:50

An excellent photograph of a beautiful lady, nuff said!

Comment by: Jimmy Collins on 30th August 2011 at 22:34

You look stunning Natalie, but the Parkie wouldn't have let you on the grass in my day !!

Comment by: Angela on 31st August 2011 at 09:12

Why do blonds think they are the lovliest women and men prefer them to other ladies, how wrong they are. But I think it's true blonds have no brains.

Comment by: Margaret on 31st August 2011 at 12:29

What a daft thing to say Angela, what's the colour of hair got to do with brains.
Leave the girl alone she's lovely

Comment by: natalie on 31st August 2011 at 13:00

Excuse me , when did I say that I thought I was the best your so jealous its unbelieve and to say that al blonde ares dumb is a really dumb thing to say maybe you should look at your self . Your all a bunch of bullies trying to insult an 18 year old girl get a life and leave me alone .

Comment by: Joanna on 31st August 2011 at 17:04

I am Natalie's mum and really found it quite funny that in this day and age women are looking down on an young girl for being pretty. I was not aware that the criteria for being clever was down to the colour of your hair, this indicates to me it is a lack of brains on your parts that actually thinks it is linked to the colour of your hair ?? This is not a debate regarding how clever a person is this is purely down to one thing good old fashioned jealously nothing more and nothing less, Natalie does not have a chip on her shoulder because she decides to defend herself against jealous bitches what I would ask is for you to be so bold and place your lovely pictures on here, and lets get the debate started

Comment by: John Morris on 31st August 2011 at 18:17

I find it incredible that anyone should be having a go at Natalie. She has not claimed to be anything, it is the photographer who thought she was pretty and worth a photograph. A sentiment I fully agree with!! When photographers put up photographs maybe they are fair game for comments, but anyone who appears in the photos ISN'T.
If anyone wants a particular subject in a photo, ie men, can I suggest that they get out there and take one and submit it.

Comment by: Rob on 1st September 2011 at 08:25

All the women (not ladies) who insult this beautiful 18 year old must take a look at themselves, jealous is bleeding out of their bodies with anger. You can bet their sell-by-date has expired and are passed it with age, or they've never had it in the first place(good looks) I mean. Natalie is beautiful and natural and it's real. to use that phrase blondes have no brains, well I don't think you have any with that comment Angela. One things for sure some women have the devil inside them. All credit to John Harrison who took the photo.

Comment by: Bg John on 1st September 2011 at 10:33

You can't judge a book by it's cover. I bet John did not know the can of worms he was opening when he pressed the shutter.

Comment by: Bex on 1st September 2011 at 23:19

Ha ha Natalie u clearly love ur self at 16 I wernt as rude as u girl sort it out, don't care how 'young you are are!' Sandra was not bein' rude an if u can't take it don't get ur fake hair all over de internet lol, bad one! PS Sort yer shoes out! And lern to type!! Also If you wanna be in the spot light kid you need 2 learn how to carry yourself! :| an havin a go at people isn't the way!!! Take it from someone who knows! Best of luck :D

Comment by: Bex on 1st September 2011 at 23:24

Your all sad seriously grow up im not talking anymore because your all clearly insane why is everyone saying I love myself you dont know me personally do you so how can you judge me by putting this picture I was not thinking that so many people would insult me when I have not anything to any of you .. Put your picture on bex and we wil see how you react to a bunch of of people you dont know insulting you !! Bullies all I can say

Comment by: bex on 1st September 2011 at 23:38

Comment by: josie on 2nd September 2011 at 02:06

ur right joanne,when i was a teen in the 60s i dyed my hair blonde i loved it,but i got ridiculed for it , WHY . my boyfriend liked it , now hubby and ime still blonde cause i only suit blonde hair some people used to say well what will you do when your older you cant have it that colour ? it was pure jelousy and look at it these days lots of girls and women want to be blonde and why not you can go to the hairdressers now and its normal to have highlights n stuff, so my fairweather friends from the 60s/70s all you who didnt dare are now clammering to be blonde !!!!!!!!!!! , your daughter is beautiful blonde or not x

Comment by: Fred Cunliffe on 2nd September 2011 at 05:32

The face that launched a thousand...........Natalie you're gorgeous,thanks John.

Comment by: Rob on 2nd September 2011 at 08:43

Well it's clear Bex can't face people with his or her real name and is not really good at writing a comment or two that makes any sence. I would guess your an ugly and passed it woman all alone with no friends, and bored stiff. One things for sure, the women or dragons who pulls Natalie down are infatuated with jealously full stop, you should all be ashamed.

Comment by: Colin Harlow on 2nd September 2011 at 09:01

If a picture paints a thousand words, if I were you Natalie I wouldn't take the bait, just let you're looks do the talking.

Comment by: natalie power on 2nd September 2011 at 09:03

What you talkin about bex I wouldnt girl ? Lol you shouldnt seriously . And if you look at your first comment you was very rude and insulting so dont act like your tryner be nice now . I do not have an attitude im a very nice person but I dont take lightly to getting insulted and I dont think anyone does .I dont care what you think, and I do have natural blonde

Comment by: lpower on 2nd September 2011 at 12:01

Bex I think it is your typing skills that should be looked at here. Don’t comment on typing skills because you clearly have none yourself. It was not Natalie’s decision to put this picture on this site. This is nothing more than bullying a young girl. Yes everyone is entitled to opinions, but there is a fine line between stating an opinion and being dam right rude. The comment which called Nat dumb and fake is actually an insult. How sad that the majority of women today feel it is acceptable to bully a young girl behind a computer screen. Yes Natalie got annoyed but wouldn’t you if you was called the same names?? I would really like to see what you women look like behind your computer screens, jealousy is not pretty. To base a person’s intelligence on hair colour, is so cliché. How sad....
If you can rage with jealousy from just one picture I would like to see your reactions if you saw Nat in person. One day you may just see her in Wigan, you can’t miss her she’s absolutely stunning .

Comment by: lpower on 2nd September 2011 at 12:02

"Why do blonds think they are the lovliest women and men prefer them to other ladies, how wrong they are. But I think it's true blonds have no brains."
Just seen this hahaha, unbelievable did Natalie say that she thinks men prefer her to other hair colours?? So this comment is completely irrelevant to this photograph. It does not matter what hair colour you have got, you have to have the looks to begin with. I am just guessing you have none yourself, because if you did you wouldn’t be jealous of 18 year olds.

Comment by: sandra webster on 2nd September 2011 at 12:29

Oh dear me people !!! I was not going to make another comment on this subject but I think it has got way out of hand with all the insults that have been given .It was never my intention to insult anyone and my apology to Natalie seems to have been lost in all the mudslinging that has ensued. I do not have any problems with people colouring their hair [ you would be hard pressed to find a women who dosn't I being one of them ]It was only that in my opinion the picture did not look NATURAL that is all that I was trying to say nothing else..... not that she didn't look pretty she did and after all IT WAS ONLY MY OPINION which in the scheme of things is not really that important.I would also like to say that I am a mature lady Yes but jealous No I have had my time in the sunlight and do not begrudge the young their time .....

Comment by: bex on 2nd September 2011 at 23:32

Ipower wen did I called her dumb???? hmmm maybe u need to learn to read better and who dosn't wanna use their real name ipower??? wow also to my friend Rob 'I would guess your an ugly and passed it woman all alone with no friends, and bored stiff.??' lol I wouldn't even like to say wat I'd guess about u....men so easy to predict! :D

Comment by: Bri on 5th September 2011 at 14:15

Nice picture, lovely girl! ;-)

Comment by: joan on 5th September 2011 at 20:42

Comment by: DJB on 13th October 2011 at 21:56

Yes dave, she is pretty, and its a well taken photo. Good luck Natalie, sadly you'll need it with so many shallow minded people about. Whats with the comments about the shoes, it's a natural photo, not a staged modelling shoot.
