Taken at the same time as my last shot only with more water added to the face! I wanted quite a dramatic feel for this shot so I've cropped quite heavily into the face.
Converted to B&W using gradient map in PS then adjusted tones and included mottled BG. Again shot with window light and a black reflector placed to the left of the model/husband.
Thanks for taking a look. Lyns x
Please take a look a the larger version if you have time
Great mysterious feel. And great lighting.
Holding my breath for this one. Superb Lyns K.x
HIGHEST QUALITY, Lyns!
Another wonderful image,very dramatic the water added on the face works very well great work.
Its a cracker, .
Great work Lyns!!
Another fantastic image,Stunning lighting
totally stunning portrait , love the shadows given with the black reflector
Works for me - top marks
LOts of detail in the large version, - like the off-centre placement also.
Where to begin? Just stunning Lyns, great shot and beautifully produced.
Excellent B&W conversion Lyn's and your husband makes a great model for this type of work.
I'm clicking on this because it's a great piece of work, but also because my Wife thinks he's a hunk, and will be giving me evil looks all night if I don't.
John X ( Oh, and Julie ) (-:
Stunning Lyns..the light is spot on.
Has religious overtones...
Thanks eveyone for the clicks and comments, much appreciated.
Thanks John & Julie - you've made my 6ft2" softie's night!
Your fella is no Drip!!! LOL
He makes a good model too Lyns...
Just as good if not better! than the previous one.
I really do like the way you use light!!Very effective and the images cannot fail to grab attention.
This is amazing! It jumped out of the gallery at me. How handy to have such a tolerant husband too!
A really excellent portrait. You are lucky that your partner lets you take his picture. My wife won't unfortunately.
This is a wonderful study of light and dark and the textures of the male face. The water, well it looks superb too.
Very eye catching, great lighting and texture too.
Thanks to Dave, Lynn, Jon & Rob for your lovely comments. Always a pleasure to read! Lyns x
Great look and pose, and an excellent crop!

Top drawer work in every aspect, great to see.

Another belter Lyns. This has a lot more emotion than the previous upload. Really well done. Dave.
Great bg replacement. Toning, crop, and expression are all spot on! Great work!

Unusual and very well framed. Superb toning.

Can I ask what you mean by 'converted to B&W using gradient map'? I've been experimenting with different conversion and toning techniques, and I really like the effect you have achieved here.
Thanks Steve. If you go to Image > Adjustments > Gradient Map and then choose which gradient you want. I always convert it to the B&W gradient then do any colour adjustments in Hue/Saturation afterwards. It's great to use gradient map if you want quite a contrasty image and it works as a separate layer so you can keep going back to the colour original if you want to. Lyns x
Thanks for the quick reply - very helpful. And thanks for the comment on 'Vicenza'
A great image with loads of drama, superb lighting
This is beautiful Lyns , superb . best wishes , Sean
Very emotional! Superb work, love it!
