Portrait in Black and White

By Sus  
Portrait in natural light, converted to black and white. Left it slightly on the soft side, without sharpening, as I had the idea this was sometimes better for portraits, but perhaps B&W needs sharpening?

The lighting is good, maybe a little sharpening?

Hi sus,
it is a nice character portrait. and black and white does not necessarily need sharpening!!

the one thing i think this needs is possibly eye impact. the eyes are in shadow, and if they had catchlights in them then i think it would provide a focal point for the viewer and harden the whole image.

Just my opinion and only trying to help!!
