A poweful image and great character study. The image is haunting because it paints a slice of time almost in deep comtemplation of time gone by and that before it. Something deeply penetrating and at the same time disturbing. The tonal values weave their magic in b/w to capture the viewer.

Congratulations on your well earned blue with this human drama study.

great portrait and texture
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Great character study with the strength of b/w to render a stunning study.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/26/2005 07:49:51 AM
this is what i've been looking for... character lines and facial texture which will show well in b/w... suggest reduce the empty space which is kinda distracting. don't get me wrong, i like empty negative spaces but i think this time it sort of drew my attention away from the subject.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/25/2005 08:04:38 PM
Great image of a classic textured profile. I very much like the composition and of course the lighting. The exposure is very good, and the processing is terrific. 9

Amazing lines, makes you really stop and think how her life has been..wish you hadn't darkened this so much though..
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/20/2005 01:13:11 AM
This is an excellent picture. Meets the challenge perfectly. Execution is pretty much flawless. Composition is original, especially cropping the face at the forehead. Maybe you've pushed the contrast a little bit too far, though. Some areas are darker than they should be. But overall, a great pic.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/20/2005 12:42:12 AM
excellent. i really like the strong contrast. there are waaaay too many bland b&w shots on this site.
