Wow! My only surprise is that so far you have only won one ribbon. You have so many fabulous photos in your collection! This is one of the coolest environmental portraits I've seen. I love the edgy urban setting, and the beautiful way you have processed it.

Perfect. The monochrome tones are excellent, and the lighting and focus are dead on.

Lovely. The angles work well here, but it's her expression that really makes the shot. I very much like the textures as well.

I've given low scores to several in this challenge that have blurred surroundings (the environmental part of the challenge), but this portrait doesn't need it. you could have cut the title to "fiddler" and it still would have worked. Very well done.
