A smashing portrait, John, lovely!

the blending of the greys is excellent - the light, hair, clothes and background all work together to make the image intimate and comfortable but still enigmatic.

Totally agree. Well thought out shot.

Lovely portrait John.
I have something similar with our grandsons looking at a tablet in a darkish room.
Mine was however by luck rather than managed.

Nice portrait John, though I see Leo removed the nose piercing, which to my eyes looks slightly odd in the image, but obviously true to life!

Lovely portrait John!
Also like Leo's a bit softer version.
Both work very well.

Lovely ,natural portrait John. Good choice of lighting.
I do also like Leos mod which makes this image seem much more intimate.

John, for me that is one of my favorite photos you have done. There is a real intimacy about it.
Just absolutely beautiful.

This is beautifully lit, and I commend you on your project with older models. I think there is a beauty in each stage of life, and you have certainly demonstrated this here. I do like the softening effect of Leo's mod. It may not be quite true to life, but it shows the essence of her beauty.
The soft grey's are indeed nicely blended.
I wonder does this make Joely an undercover model?

Truly splendid - a portrait that captures a real sense of her character. Well set up too with the mix of greys and the lighting works really well.

The predominance of grey in your image, only relieved by her skin tones, makes for a striking portrait. I do like the reflective expression from the model, looking into a mirror.

A lovely natural portrait John. I like Leo's mod too. But then that's removing part of her natural state.

This is a beautiful portrait - and the camera settings that you used seem to offer a great teaching opportunity- maybe on your blog? Why did you choose high shutter speed and high iso (on a camera that has little noise) rather than lower shutter speed and lower iso which traditionally give a better image quality?

Love the soft greys of sweater, eyeshadow and hair.
Beautifully lit and hey 40 is still young!

She is beautiful, and your portrait captures her sense of elegance.
