Shot of my wife concentrating on her knitting that she had made a mistake on and was trying desperately to sort out. Taken with a single tungsten light (hence the high iso) then converted to B&W

Thank you all so much for all your C&C's very much appreciated, a huge thank you to Gareth for his UA on my image of yesterday

Thanks for taking the time to look

Hugh

That's a really good shot, Hugh - the lighting is just right and the idea to convert to b/w spot on!

Very nicely lit and I do like the grittiness from that high ISO: seems to work well with the low lighting, Hugh.

I can imagine the reaction if I posted a shot under similar circumstances... So you have my sympathy and admiration...

And it's a great shot, too!

Great portrait. I like the gritty grainy look ( though not sure your wife would see it as flattering ! ). You must have a really tolerant family Hugh ! Grin

The noise / grain I like it gives the shot some age as in the B+W prints of the past however I see some vertical lines in the dark areas and this could be a sign of the processor working just too hard. For this shot I'd have said exposure of 1/500th would have worked as well allowing you to drop the ISO to 3200 or 6400 so keeping the grain effect but loosing the banding noise.

Nicely lit grainy portrait, it works so well in mono. I think it will look even better if printed.
