Thanks for all the kind comments.
Strange thing is, I did the close-up crop as a last minute thing, and loaded it first as it was filed as shot#1 instead of shot#2 as originally intended.

Prefer V1: A perfectly focused & detailed close up, Andrew. The crop is spot on, too.

Sometimes with common subjects, a little thinking 'out of the box' can transform an image from the ordinary to some a lot less ordinary Smile

The composition on this has been very thoughtful and extremely well executed. The sharpness and exposure are perfect Smile

Very nice capture and good framing leaving the space in front but when you look large it shows so much that you have sharpened the image too much. Noise is aparant

Thanks Richard for your comments - I agree about the sharpness and noise, and wish now that I had taken more care with this image, as I might now have a PA for that extra effort.
That said, I am very happy to receive my first HC for this image - it has made me very happy, and made me realise how far I have progressed within a year, studying a particular area of photography.
So much more to learn...

Surprised more people didn't comment on the over sharpening, though it is far more evident once you open the large version. Irrespective of that its a charming portrait, well taken and well composed. Keep up the good work, just be a bit more careful with the processing.
