First shot at doing a portrait. Focussing was the hardest part and I'm not sure I got it spot on but I was quite pleased with my experiment with long exposures. All done in camera. If I feel brave I might put some others up. The only sharpening is to her eyes as I liked the soft look on the face.
I know I should have left a bit more room at the top, and I'm not sure about leaving the slats in the chair at the bottom in the picture, but that's what you folks are for - to let me know.
Thanks for looking.
