This is Mother, she is 75 years young and the camera STILL loves her. there are many old shots of my Mum when she was in her 20's she was stunningly beautiful as she is today. Thanks for votes/comments

Simple editing really, converted from RAW, curves adjust layer set black level, another curves adjust layer set for whites, set opacity, USM, noise ninja resized, border submit.

I think it should hold it's own quite well, people here love emotive portraits so i'll aim high

est score - 6.2
dream score - 7+

Great team, MAK family :)
Her eyes are the center of attention and rightfully so. She has a wonderful gaze. Still a young lady at heart is she?

There is so much character on the faces of the elderly. Mother has a long life to tell about and this shot expresses that very well.

Interesting capture of a beautyfully textured subject. I just wonder why some parts are blurred and others at same distance from camera are not. I hope it is not an artificially created dof
