A very late one for me......continual thanks for all that have stopped by my recent work, still very elated for the HC............

Tonite, a cropped conversion of a portrait of Toni-Marie, darkened using filters to excentuate her face and wonderfully compelling eyes.......

Thanks for looking....jools Smile

this is beautiful, clear, captivating and intriguing as you try to figure out if she is wearing a hood, shrouded in hair, a veil, etc. Love it.

Good morning Jools, what a beautiful alluring almost haunting portrait, beautifully captured and presented. Quite stunning, one of the best if not the best B&W portrait I have seen.

Superb portrait — wonderful detail in the eyes and a really good black and white conversion. My only reservation, and it's a very small one, is that I'm not sure that the slightly off-centre composition brings any advantage.
