A very good portrait which is full of character and very natural. Black and white works so well with some portraits and this is one. Well caught and produced.

Soft, gentle and a really lovely capture - I would be tempted to soften , get rid of or maybe blur the lines of the wood behind her head, so all you do is focus on her face, but that is only a suggestion - it doesn't really detract from the sweetness of the picture, and the lovely grey tones of the conversion...

I would suggest lightening the dark areas on the left side if her face a tad
What a lovely shot! Smile

Lovely light in this portrait. I really like the way the eyes are looking elsewhere. Maybe a slight softening of the bg may have enhanced your wife's face a little - but it works very well anyway.
