Weirdly, this looks like the Long Bar in Raffles in Singapore! I guess I am nowhere near though.....lol! But love the photo....sometimes, the constraints bring the best out of you, so guess this was the case as this is lovely....good work!

A big wow on this shot if you were both under time pressures and other appointments. She looks so relaxed and the lighting on her is spot on.

Thanks a lot for the comments guys, the cafe was pretty full and Erica was not keen on posing for the shot so all in all I'm pretty happy with the result. Everyone was great about it too as they couldn't get to the counter to place their order with my light stand (and Erica) in the way.

Johnny, as much as I'd like to visit I can safely say I've never been to Singapore. This place is a mile or two from the Long Bar I guess, the clue is in the title and sign in the background.

Cheers all.

Darren.

Thanks guys, appreciate your comments. I'll certainly keep it in mind Les but I don't think the lady behind the counter was too keen on my light stand, mind you I left her a tip which seemed to make her happy Smile

I know you know where it is Roy, thanks for the comment.

Sorry John I missed your guess of Langwathby but sadly it's not right. The location featured in a film???

Thanks Sarah, I think her expression had more to do with the fact that everyone in the cafe was watching her Wink

Great atmospheric shot.
It looks like the railway station bar not a million miles away from the Lotus factory in Hethel.
Great coffee & cakes there!

Debbie, you're spot on with the Brief Encounter film and the location is the tea room on Carnforth Station.

LOVE the processing on his shot. Have tried to process my portraits like this a few times but never quite pull it off. You've nailed it. Cracking composition too.
17 Aug 2011 7:58AM
Love the lighting here Darren - great period image.
18 Aug 2011 7:37AM
I love this ,really good work.
David Lean (director of 'Brief Encounter' would have been impressed with your set up and atmosphere.
In the background, I almost expect to see Trevor Howard removing that important bit of grit from Celia Johnson's eye.
