Yes, got that one quickly didn't I? The tones are superb, I'm not sure about the excessive space to the left though! A tighter upright crop would make it even better in my eyes.

Nice one Warb. Congrats on the EC.

Just a quick question, to get the highlight on the face and everything else in shadow, did you spot meter of a highlight? I'd like to get soem of these find of portraits and this is how I am thinking of doing it.

Cheers,

Niiiiiiiiiiiice. Dude you need to get your minolta - it has spot metering which works well in these types of shots. I think the bright side of the photo is teetering on being a little burned out, but you've managed the tone well.

another cd will be on its way soon :o)

andy, in photoshop i did a little work burning, but mainly i played around with the blacks, greys and whites in selective colour to take out the background and shadows to bring out her face. not sure why but i prefered this crop with her to the right as if the edge of the photo was the window.
