    Yet another very strong portrait from your ever growing portfolio.....I see evidence of hard work and a questioning nature here.

    I knew that this was yours as soon as I saw the thumbnail version Leo.....it had you stamped all over it.

    Sentimental Simplicity beautifully observed and presented.

  • Now THIS ....is a Dog

    Thank you both...

    Re the Sharpness....

    I always shoot in RAW, so work needs to be done to achieve the end result, my regular workflow is to...

    Always focus as intended when shooting, then later I use Photoshop CS6 to adjust curves via ..a series of Contrast Grading layers...these are flattened as I go,

    The final touch is to use targeted sharpening, again, on layers to add depth and clarity.

  • Farmer Shangri La

    I love portraits that are ...True....to the character ...here it absolutely shines through....sans make-up, sans almost everything bar that genuine smile and the glint of mischief in her eyes.

    Hence my Award.

    A witty and clever juxtaposition of items brought into sharp focus to give the viewer a bit of a smile together with a slight hint of suggested pain.

  • the shadow of your forks

    This must be a clear sign that the Moscow weather has turned to its winter worst and that our Leo has been forced to play with cutlery and shadows?

    It works really well too, nicely composed and taken, .....an excellent example of what can be achieved photographically indoors with minimum fuss.

    Top marks from me Leo
