Congratulations to rongwam for winning Feature Thread of the Week with 3 votes - View Previous Winners


This image is from a series of recent beauty shots, but I decide to convert it to B&W. Taken with Sony A7rii + Batis 85mm. Comments are welcome and appreciated. Thanks.

Henry

Wow, Henry. Tonality, contrast between her lovely skin and her hood, composition, processing -- all off-scale good. I can't unlock the grip she has on me with her beautiful eyes. Very engaging.

Beautiful shot and processing. I love B&W. The amount of skin texture/softening is perfect to my eyes. Wish I could do skin so well.

Agree with GoodEgg... the eyes are amazing.

Most of the people I know don't look like porcelain dolls.

Thank you all for your comments.
@ GoodEgg and Doug: Agreed that it is hard to not looking at her beautiful eyes!
@ Vickie: Your definition of porcelain might be different from others, but I appreciate your opinion. Thanks!

Really nice.
Her face is perfect and the texture of the fabric is well rendered.

I'm sure we'd all love to hear the lighting details if you care to share. I'm normally pretty good at reading lighting but am unsure of this setup.

Wonderful portrait !!

The lighting on her face and hood is just exquisite. Great tonality as well.

Thanks for sharing.

Wonderful photo, BW really works here. But I notice the double catch lights in her eyes.

To me, her face looks way overprocessed, or maybe she has perfect skin without much detail, but either way, it doesn't look real to me and pulls me out of the moment. The dark skin right around her eyelashes with a sharp transition to her face is a dead giveaway.

Thank you Ed, Charles, and Elliot for your opinions.
@ Elliot: The dark skin around her eyelashes was selectively burned to create a more contrast look.
@ Charles: Yes, I used 2 lights in front of the model, that is why there are two catch lights in her eyes.

That was my first thought too, skin too over processed and lacking detail, but otherwise an exquisite image.

Sometimes words are a waste. Just wonderful imagery.
To me it's ok it she doesn't look perfectly 'real' whatever that is, maybe she's not! Maybe she's an angel
