this is again my dog
Lovely image. Well done.
OK, so anything with a dog in is likely to attract me.
Well done; Lara looks lovely.
I often advocate monochrome (greyscale). However, in this case, I am not sure it works...
There is no gravitas, as the shot is so close, so I would be tempted to use colour to restore the richness.
Anyway, all the best to Lara - and to you, of course.
I must admit, I do prefer the colour version you uploaded yesterday. But saying that Lara is gorgeous and b&w or colour nothing changes that!
Quote: There is no gravitas, as the shot is so close, so I would be tempted to use colour to restore the richness.
I also admit, I had no idea what "gravitas" meant, so I went into google to find out:-
•dignity: formality in bearing and appearance; "he behaved with great dignity"
I'm afraid I disagree with you 'Kapulco' - I think Lara shows great dignity!

fine close up, works well in mono
Thanks for your re-joiner. And thanks for looking up a word of which you were ignorant; 'tis a pity we don't all do that more often. I also write, so I'm especially chuffed you bothered.
You are absolutely right - Lara appears very dignified (and retrievers can look very loopy )
So, to explain further: I was referring to the photograph, not the model. Sorry not to have been clearer.
Close-ups which, for example, stare deep into a model's eyes, can have gravitas. But, to me, this portrait is more about alertness, fun and joy. That should not be taken to undermine the image at all - is is simply a different perspective - equally valid.
To my mind, this shot is too "in her face" to have the perspective of gravitas - but it does have both joyous and alert perspectives. I think those would be better-served by colour.
Anyway, thanks muchly, for highlighting the ambiguity in my crit - I am very pleased to have the opportunity to further explain.
All the best,
I like this portrait. The dog's face is beautiful + is captivated by something which gives the photo interest. JNC
lara is really cute great image
