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
wonderful light and tones hugh a belter nice one
I must say I do like this shot Hugh, very nicely cropped, the tones are very very appealing, light is spot on, nice one regards Leon.
That's a really good shot, Hugh - the lighting is just right and the idea to convert to b/w spot on!
Love the concentration you captured
Wonderful light and tones. Lovely mono portrait
The lighting and crop suits the expression very well, Hugh.
Very nicely lit and I do like the grittiness from that high ISO: seems to work well with the low lighting, Hugh.
She's a much more patient women than I am, in various respects...
Beautiful intimacy, beautiful grain.
I can relate to that look!!!!!!!
I sometimes do a lot of "unsewing" on my quilts
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!
Excellent play of light here Hugh !! I must say your mono portaits are stunning !
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 !
Moody, grainy and altogether brilliant. great portrait Hugh.
Works so well. Gives a real sense of her concentration and makes a great portrait.
Super close up Hugh,
Very nice mono.
Great light Hugh, nice mono too
The natural grain achieved is very fine -- this works well me thinks!
It's the words...Shot my wife...that has me smiling Hugh, and no one has commented
but overall this is a image of deep concentration well captured
This is a great portrait Hugh. Excellent lighting
A beautiful image Hugh.
Nice portrait, witn good lighting Hugh, but a bit grainy for a lady.
love that grain
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.
Excellent and fantastic image,Hugh,very well done,
Nicely lit grainy portrait, it works so well in mono. I think it will look even better if printed.
