I took this in the same session as the last photo I submitted. I changed it to black and white in the hope of changing the mood.

Hello Bob,
I think it was a good decision to change to B&W and I do not see any detracting or superfluous elements. Technically outstanding. The composition is excellent and everything works together towards a coherent, and very pleasant, whole. I should really like to see what other members say. Very well done indeed.

Hi Bob,
I agree it was a good conversion to black & white. The soft light has revealed the smooth textures of her face and given a good over all balance with clear details. Good management to have prevented any strong contrasts on the model. Interesting and well chosen setting and a relaxed mood presented from the beautiful model. Great image.

Hi Bob,

this is indeed a beautiful portrait. Good choice for b&w, nice location for the modern ML


Hi Bob,
Great B&W tones, well composed and a good setting for the shot.
The sky is a little OE but a difficult photo looking towards the window

  • Great

Hi Robert
Excellent portrait. The conversion to b&w really improves the mood.


Hi Bob,
This portrait is very great.
I like too much the background.
The ligth and the balance of the differents elements is just perfect for me.
