Lovely portrait. She is framing her face so naturally, with great eye contact. Again, the leathers suit the B&W treatment.

Very fine portrait. I'd be inclined to crop the bottom a little below the elbows.

Thanks Colin, Skoffs, and Shaks, for leaving a comment - much appreciated. Thanks also to the people who gave it a click.

I couldnít agree with you more Steve about the need to cut this picture off just below the elbows. I sat here flicking a coin for about five minutes - thinking should I - or shouldnít I - cut that bottom bit off just before I uploaded it. I wanted her to be shown with the bike - but the distracting bright seat really worried me. Thanks for that Steve - I cut the bottom bit off and itís a good improvement.

great shot she's a natural model very relaxed in front of the camera great eye contact as well

It works really well in b?w but i might have tweaked the exposure a little as i think the skin tones are a little blown but thats just me

Thanks Alex for your spot on comments, thatís exactly how I feel about this shot. I was trying to conceal the normal - not 100% totally free from girls growing up spots on their faces in this portrait. Thanks a bundle to you and all the other lovely people who have also taken the time to comment on this shot.

Best regards
