The Doyen of our U3A photography group during our last outing to Beamish Museum.
Edit: I have just looked at the exif.: can't believe I deliberately chose that approach!
Fantastic and great image,
A dark and gritty finish that befits the venerable gentleman. Wouldn't you be tempted to put an SLR in the hands of the portrait painting gent!
That dosent half look like my Dad
This works, great image.
The seated gentleman looking on benevolently
Rather like a gentleman's club Bill.
A great mono Bill, I like the way the bottom of the image mysteriously fades in to shadow. - gary
Really striking candid Bill, with those two ways of making images portrayed and the "doyen" as a kind of link between them.
Thank you all.
I forgot to mention that this was inside the (reconstructed) 19th-century Masonic Hall, very dimly lit and frankly spooky. I admit to having encouraged the gloom somewhat in processing, though it has ended up much as my eyes saw it initially.
The paneling and bench puts me in mind of an old pub, Bill. Very irreverent of me, I know!
Makes mine a half.
The darkness certainly matches the mood of the paintings.
Yes, Bill, you could have opened up more and not had to steel yourself to shoot at 1/8, with btw is rather impressive at our age
Another excellent candid. I do like these kinds of images - as you probably know from my PF.
This really appeals to me Bill, very well taken and presened.
Wonderful candid Bill.
Great candid, Bill, and the processing really suits the setting
Well processed Bill dark yes effective O yes very much so, good comp and so well spotted well done sir lol
The processing has worked a treat Bill - super composition with those portraits looming over Marcus.
Glad to be your 30th vote on an excellent image.
Ha ha, a good opportunity not missed here Bill. Very app't with the processing.
The pictures and reflected pictures all make for an interesting setting of this photographer.
Nice processing here as well, Bill.
Great mono work.
'Doyen' a wonderful and somewhat archaic word which suits this prominent character so very well.
Looks like Marcus is also having trouble with his camera settings!
Masonic lodge? A strange and somewhat creepy place.
Very nicely composed and well taken image in mono, I especially like the vignetting, Bill.
Nice shot, I like this one.
