Good morning all....
This is a shot of my brother "Budge" I took recently whilst on a family visit. Family are good to practise on just wish they lived nearer.
Thanks for stopping by
Converted and edited inPS
Hope your day goes good
Superb work again Alley, bet your brother is well chuffed with this one!
Not normally a great fan of a dark vignette myself, but it definitely works here and adds considerably to the shot. Cracking detail in here missus and well converted too. Like it.
Funny this as the thumbnail looks flat and lacking in contrast, but the image just gets better the larger it's viewed. Large is a cracker ... plenty of contrast, loads of detail and well processed too. Not the kind of treatment you could get away with on a lady (apart from Dot) but it works well here.
Thanks Paul & Paul....and Dave...much apprecited.
I had no choice but to use a heavy vignette Paul. I had meant to take my black back drop when I went to visit my brother ....but forgot and left it at my sisters from doing "Mr Jacksons" portrait. It was too far away to go back ....and we could not find anything to use as a dark back drop I wanted to use the image as I dont see my brother very often and really liked the overall portrait....so I tweaked into something I thought might look better...back ground wise if you get what I mean.
Thanks again for your comments
Dave I think you like Dot
Lovely detail Alley
Lol .... she's in my age range these days

I think she is still a little too young for you Dave....Dont want to be called a craddle snatcher now do we
Greast portrait Alley.
Love this Alley, he also reminds me of one of the three muskateers, dont know why lol maybe the hair and goatee
What a horrible thing to say Ms Catz
A cracking shot shot Alley and a wonderful conversion too
another fine portrait

You would not stand a chance with her Dave....she likes her men with thier socks on!
Dave you are not old and so young at heart also
(feel better now?)
Thanks for stopping by Les and Ollie
I am suitably placated Ms Catz. But I now have a rather awful mental image of Dot donned in leather garb leering at a naked man with his socks on.
yer big 'un is amazing
What a fantastic portrait.
The processing is superb, detail is amazing with a top notch B&W conversion, very well done.
Wonderful portrait. Great treatment.
Photogenic family Alison, great portrait. Ron.
...wonderful and quality b&w work...like it ...
Great Photograph! Obviously Better Looking Than Yourself.
I have this image of Dot & Dave firmly fixed in my head now thankyou very much ...I need some Paracetomol !
Good tones here Alison & a far away look in his eyes which you have captured well.
Good portrait. Budge has a bit of a Klingon forhead, doesn't he ?
