Beautiful, intimate, just enough information.
My 50mm f1.8 is the lens that I use when I'm thinking, taking time. I believe that the Canon is as good. Glad that you've got your own now, it will suit your style very well.

She's probably wondering whether to clock you one with the rolling pin or the frying pan for taking another photo!! The eye is nicely highlighted by the light which is so important. A very effective low key portrait, Hugh.

Good low light capture just enough light where needed, good tones nicely done

Like the atmosphere the light gives this Hugh, have you looked a crop in from the top just into the hair line, might be worth a look

I've come back to look at this, as I just love the light in it, and the contrasts of shadow and light, and now see there is a version 2 as per Richard's suggestion, and I must say that it does make the image more compelling.
