Here's a shot taken at a camera club evening a few weeks back.
This is the fiddle player of a local folk trio who were happy to pose for us in return for a few 'promo' shots.
Messed about with this a bit to give it a different feel. A touch of softness and a duotone finish being the main changes.
There are a few things I'm not happy with so comments please and I'll tell you mine later.

Like the toning and the graphic qualities of the compostion, but not sure the point of focus on the hand works for me.

Now this is the really strange part here. The point of focus is actually her face, though the hand is also within the depth of field, given the lens and aperture combination, but when I did the processing on this it was the face that went soft while the hand stayed relatively sharp. Maybe I should have added some gaussian blur to the surroundings to focus the attention a touch more. I'd also like to get rid of that damned watch!

Thanks for looking guys.

I really like this but for me it would be improved with half an inch cropped from the bottom. The watch doesn't bother me, it's such an 'ordinary' item that I didn't really register that it was even there.
