This is a lovely casual portrait. Lovely greyscale. Nice composition and DOF. Perhaps there could be even a little bit more DOF to have your friend stand out even a bit more. But that is only nitpicking. I say very well done. And how lovely to have such a lovely photo of your friend. I am sorry for you loss.

Its an OK shot. Good focus on the eyes. I would have liked to see him/her extracted a bit more from the background. A narrower DOF would have been good. Composition wise I would have liked to see the baboon more to the right-hand side of the frame, to make it look into the picture. Unfortunately, the grasses in the foreground are distracting, especially the upper one which cutes his face into 2 parts. I notice how I first see the eyes and then stop to 'jump over the grass' to get to the rest of the picture. A narrower DOF might have sorted that as well as the straws would then not be equally prominent in the picture.

This is better. We see the face. But I can also see she is not 'in' the picture. Next time. Walk up, talk to her. Tell her what story you want to tell. It is about here. She is in the picture but she is still not there. It is not her story. What is her story? Again there are distractions. The lady on the phone. It would have been better to isolate your subject from the surrounding. Do you want to picture things as you see them or do you want to tell a story?

Kind of interesting with her long hair and the baby. I wish there was more space for her to 'walk into'. A lot of distracting elements, like the lamp, the person right in front, sort of by her nose (red jacket), the man by her elbow (blue shirt). The guy in the cap might have worked but with all three of them, and the vent just by her head. It is more of a family album type of shot. When taking a picture, always look for distracting elements and eliminate them. You also take a lot, all, pictures from behind. Perhaps it is time to challenge yourself and try and show us their faces. You wanted to illustrate the hair. You did that right. But it does not grab. Don't be shy. Next time, ask if you can take the picture and focus on what it is you want to show. it could have been a close-up or even a panorama where the hair played a central role. Now, it is a woman with a baby that has long hair.

I will follow up on my previous comment. Apart from the color, there is no difference between the two pictures. Try to think...what makes THIS rose special. How can I capture the SOUL of THIS rose. The flower has beautiful colors and patterns. How can you use that to make a stunning picture?

You should try different angles. From below, from the side, etc. At the moment, it is just a picture of a rose but there is no emotion or story behind it. The DOF and focus are good, but in the end, it's just a rose. Sorry, it may sound hard but I think you can do better and we are here to learn...right... I think you have the opportunity to do better. You have the technique. Now try to work on composition and emotion.

Bonjour Michel,
Aussitôt que j'ai vu l'image dans la gallerie, j'étais certain que c'était un pissenlit.
Quelle belle surprise de voir des pâtes....
Toujours agréable à découvrir tes essais culinaires !!

Savoir voir la beauté, la fragilité, c'est ce que l'on appelle "avoir l'oeil ouvert" mais aussi l'esprit !!!
Touchante photographie que je trouve très belle.
