Another portrait of my wife while we were at dinner with my son and daughter inlaw some time ago, this time she has a drink in hand Smile (unlike last time ) and still contemplating, what I have no idea, probably whether to have another drink or not Smile Again taken with my son's EF50mm f/1.8 II, I now have one of my won Smile so don't have to borrow his Smile

Thank you all so much for all your C&C's very much appreciated

Thank for taking the time to look

Beautiful, intimate, just enough information.
My 50mm f1.8 is the lens that I use when I'm thinking, taking time. I believe that the Canon is as good. Glad that you've got your own now, it will suit your style very well.

She's probably wondering whether to clock you one with the rolling pin or the frying pan for taking another photo!! The eye is nicely highlighted by the light which is so important. A very effective low key portrait, Hugh.

Like the atmosphere the light gives this Hugh, have you looked a crop in from the top just into the hair line, might be worth a look

I've come back to look at this, as I just love the light in it, and the contrasts of shadow and light, and now see there is a version 2 as per Richard's suggestion, and I must say that it does make the image more compelling.
