Excellent portrait, the wrinkles on the face are fascinating! The details are wonderful and looks good in b&w.
I don't like it.
I think the subject is brilliant and black and white can be powerful to show the character and the features, but the high contrast processing on the skin and square-on approach makes it seem like nothing more than a mask. The version with the tint in the clothing is more sympathetic as the contrast seems to have been toned down a bit.
Hi Mike... thats a fair comment
On looking at it agin, I'm guessing that you had on-camera flash and had to boost contrast to get some texture into the wrinkles but some of the skin 'peaks' are close to burnt out - in which case you did not have a lot of options available to you. My guess is that if you create a grey mask with about 20% opacity you could 'paint out' the highlights and maintain the texture - the image could be worth the effort because she certainly has character.
