    This is a beautiful soulful black & white image Trish, you have got the tonal range just right, with the blacks, whites,highlights and contrast, which has morphed the mood of this image into a great visual story teller, nice work

  • Thanks so much Michael, what a lovely and thoughtful comment :)

    You’ve got some great tones in this one, Trish. Michael’s right. I absolutely love the depth of black in her clothing- also the railing. I was telling somebody earlier, it’s funny, but B&W’s are merely “white and black” to some people, but to us B&W-junkies, it’s a whole world of “colour”. :) I like the somewhat pushed exposure here too. This is really good. :)

    Great capture Trish. I love the tones and the blurred image in front of the subject. My first reaction was to reject this from the Canid Photography group because the subject is a performer. However, I think you have captured a candid moment within a performance. Great shot.
