Lets see what you think to something a bit old after some digital treatment. Shot on a Mamiya 645 1000s with 150mm lens and XP1. Tripod and just window light at about 1/60 @ f8. 645 negative scanned at 2400dpi with Epson 4990 flatbed. Converted to positive and window burnt in a lot. Highlights burnt in. Dark sepia toned with channel mixer in CS3 and smart sharpen.

I have thousands of old negatives and slides - some I've scanned, some not. Don't think I'll live long enough.

Love the whole concept and idea of the shot. Really good! Is there any way you could make the women completely a silhouette. I personally think it would look better that way. Also i would clone out the stray strand of hair around her head that are highlighted.

Hi Paul,

I love image of a lady in the 60's/70's (I guess) wearing a cotton dress and playing the piano with sun light coming through the window, a good composition. I think I would go the other way to Andy and selectivly lighten the image to try and emphasize the warm day with the sun on parts of the dress and skin. Also slightly straightened using the candle on top of the piano as a guide.

Take care
Martin

Beautiful shot !!!....glad you didn't use fill-in-flash, or reflectors, 'cos it's perfect as it is....lovely 'aura' to this beauty !!!!!

There's a strange sort of 'highlight' on her RH fingers ?, though easy enough to 'burn-in'....other than that it's gorgeous !!!!

An excellent shot, Paul. You just need to sort out her little and ring fingers, which have acquired a strangely translucent yellow glow.

I like that last mod. Gives things a bit more impact and seems smoother.
