Every wrinkle and furrow on that beautiful face is a milestone lived or witnessed in her lifetime. Awesome picture, but then again, most of yours are.

Excellent capture and expression I see they are allowing Topaz Adjust as basic editing Basic Editing changes and used very well.

Tremendous shot - what a trooper your gran must be!
My mother would have fainted if she saw this and it was her portrait - she is more the heavy smoothing sort.

I much admire the amazing texture of skin you have produced, and this with the soft box. I have to try this myself.

Well deserved ribbon!

I have sat and stared at this image, all I can say is that you have captured such a remarkable image that reflects such wisdom and grace. Outstanding!

I really like the sharpness and clarity in this shot. The way it's framed leaving out the hair and even the rest of the hand is nice too - forces the viewer to focus on the features. This shot deserves to do well.

Just magnificent. All I can fault is the lack of depth, highlight in her eyes.
