Portraiture is a genre at which I am no use and therefore feel incompetent to comment in any meaningful way, Trev, so I all I can say is that to me you have three very fine images here with V 1 the most appealing to me, mainly b/o the pose and the lighting. You seem to have managed to capture the character of these gents so well.

I think Ronnie hit the spot there, I like all three and mono is very suitable to these portraits, if I could do as well Trev, I would be over the moon!, regards Leon.GrinGrinGrinGrinGrin

Only done a little portraiture but haven't learned
about lighting for high and low key images yet.
I wondered if the shadows on the left of face in V1
were too dark?
V3 doesn't have much shadow at all,
so I think V2 is the best balance.
what did club members think?
