Thanks to everyone for their comments and feedback on my last image, and to Pete and Sherlob and franfoto for the awards very much appreciated.
Going with a mono headshot of Fredau, with this upload, just like the reflective nature of the pose and her eyes too.
Balance of off camera flash and ambient light.
Thanks for looking
Beautiful classic portrait.
I like this very much, it has an almost dreamlike quality to it, the eyes are very emotive and the pose very natural and reflective
Thanks Paul, Carsten and Prabh, for your comments.
super mono portrait rich.
Congrats on the EC Richard Beautiful image as always.
a very thoughtful look on the ladies face but a well taken shot
Many thanks for the EC Pete very much appreciated.
Very nice indeed. This really is a classic pose, reminds me of the great film star images of the 1940s. Excellent work.

I really like this one Richard. A classical look beautifully photographed and presented.
Everything about this is excellent, congrats on the EC Richard
Excellent pose and shot great lighting Richard well suited to the black and white, The pose and shot is Hollywood perfect for sure click
I've seen this model mamy times and even considered booking her myself, (shame she lives so far away from Dorset) but this is completely different to her usual look and I really like it.
Thanks Scott, she is well worth working with if she is in your area.
This is a stunning mono portrait Rich, very 1940s to my mind.
This it a bit of timeless photography and could easily have been taken 50/60years ago. Outstanding work.
absolutly beautiful Richard!
Another beauty from you ...

I agree - and such a beautifully captured image, Richard, think it has to be one of the best portraits I've seen on here. Well deserving of the Awards
Really well deserved, Richard. As has been said this has a timeless quality. There is a serenity reminiscent of renaissance portraiture in your image. Superb portrait.

Beautiful portrait. One of your very best IMHO.
Really lovely portrait Richard. Has an old feeling to it. Love it.......Sandy
Thanks again forvall your comments and feedback on this very much appreciated.
A classy shot which I love. I notice many have said it has a timeless feel but i think it looks like one of the early mono images ; possibly her pose and thoughtful expression takes me to the early 19th century .Love the skin tones and the way you have caught the gentle curves of her bone structure.
A great pose so perfect in mono
Stunning portrait work Richard and congrats on all the awards, tis well deserved. Think all the things have been said above and I would agree with Mary the model has fantastic bone structure and you have capturd it so well.
Thoughtful mood Richard, deep in thought. Congratulations on all the awards, mono...... Ron.

This has class Richard. Pleased to make it 100.
A beautiful lady and portrait, I love the softness of this, it works so well especially in B&W.
I am just catching up Richard but no surprise to see the awards and comments on this one. A truly fabulous portrait with a truly classic feel. The quality stands out a mile even as a thumbnail.
PS Would love to see you do some headshots in a Film Noir style. I know you would do a great job and a model with this look would be perfect.
A lovely sultry look here and so sharp.
Portrait photography of the finest order. Works a real treat in mono.
No hesitation leaving my weekly award here.
