Hi Bob, An excellent B&W portrait. I think that the lighting suites the sitter and the pose very well, and produces a very characterful overall image. Another very accomplished portrait!

Best wishes for 2017,


Bom dia Robert,
Sometimes I read in your critics that you are not a specialist in portraits.
I see that you get deeper into the subject.
It is a photo that has content and plastic beauty.

Hi Bob :-) a beautiful photo !!!

Hi Robert
I'm not an expert, but I can see sharp details and a perfect exposure on this portrait, as well as a neat backdrop.
