Bracken Hill: Tant Mies

By andreduplessis
Bracken Hill Jan 09: Tant Mies

Please view this image in Large, Thanks Smile

Continuing with my series on the People of Bracken Hill....
This is Tant Mies (Auntie Mies).
Four of my previous eight uploads were composed in front of her house, so it is only fair that she gets to feature as well. Her daughter can be seen in the doorway at the back.

Thanks for visiting,
Andre

Wonderfully shot. Like the POV...such wonderful light on her face to show her expressive face. The contrast in your pictures is amazing. Love them. Also, really enjoy how you add something of great importance to the featured person.

Thank you Sandy - that's nice to hear. Best thing that happened to me (only recently) was to learn to use the selective exposure settings in Camera Raw V5 more actively, and leave the fine tuning to PS. This enabled me to retain the highlights more easily when working up a contrast for effect. Andre

I like your shots with people in the background best. The picture is often about them as much if not more than the main subject.
