This 87 year old grandma is my neighbor. I'm glad she allowed me to take her portraits including this faceless one.

Going to my favorites.

I never expected I would earn my very first ribbon. This photo was taken in my home studio using a single softbox and a black background to achieve a dramatic low key effect. Now that this image won a ribbon, I am going to print a copy, frame it and give it to her as birthday present.

Many thanks to all for your kind comments.

Lovely. Very emotive. Lighting is perfect.

Excellent tones for a very dramatic photo that fits the challenge theme well.

I worry your black background was added in PP and will get you DQ'd as happened to a ribbon winner in the most recent Free Study. But I will vote as if it has been validated! :-)

Beautifully done!

A really excellent shot - the lighting is excellent.

Fabulous photo! From the lighting, to the detailed textures on the subject's hand, the composition, and (critically) the story. This really is excellent.
06/08/2007 07:08:55 PM
Great texture and lighting. I would have liked to see more of her face though.
06/08/2007 09:21:43 AM
Great light and shadow. Great model. I really like it. Oh, and I feel like she is screaming "WHY" in her head. 10

I am not a good photographer, I do not claim to be better than anyone, any criticism is meant to be constructive criticism......
