That's a really good shot, Hugh - the lighting is just right and the idea to convert to b/w spot on!

Very nicely lit and I do like the grittiness from that high ISO: seems to work well with the low lighting, Hugh.

I can imagine the reaction if I posted a shot under similar circumstances... So you have my sympathy and admiration...

And it's a great shot, too!

Great portrait. I like the gritty grainy look ( though not sure your wife would see it as flattering ! ). You must have a really tolerant family Hugh ! Grin

The noise / grain I like it gives the shot some age as in the B+W prints of the past however I see some vertical lines in the dark areas and this could be a sign of the processor working just too hard. For this shot I'd have said exposure of 1/500th would have worked as well allowing you to drop the ISO to 3200 or 6400 so keeping the grain effect but loosing the banding noise.
