I am no expert either Neil but it looks good to me. - gary
Great details and wonderful light.
B&w often shows more detail than colour at times lovely shot
Havent you captured that expression so very well
Superb portrait, dont think you need much advice when you shoot stuff like this.
A very good portrait.
Barbara, i,ve known that look for forty odd years ,can,t get away with anything.
Grand shot !
Excellent mono portrait, great light and textures Neil.
You have made an excellent start Neil. Lovely portrait.
Lovely portrait in B & W
Great light and catchlight Neil. Mono works very well
A very good portrait which is full of character and very natural. Black and white works so well with some portraits and this is one. Well caught and produced.
A beautiful capture Neil being a Grandmother I understand and thanks 4 your kind n encouraging comment as I am totally self taught in photography and PS. I just have fun and so can u. Give it a shot you will be amazed how easy it is.
Soft, gentle and a really lovely capture - I would be tempted to soften , get rid of or maybe blur the lines of the wood behind her head, so all you do is focus on her face, but that is only a suggestion - it doesn't really detract from the sweetness of the picture, and the lovely grey tones of the conversion...
I would suggest lightening the dark areas on the left side if her face a tad
What a lovely shot!
Very nice monochrome full portrait capture & image rendering, Neil. Regards...Peter
Lovely light in this portrait. I really like the way the eyes are looking elsewhere. Maybe a slight softening of the bg may have enhanced your wife's face a little - but it works very well anyway.
A very nicely lit and charming portrait of your wife, Neil.
You should practice this more often . A fine mono Portrait . Nice soft lighting .
