    I shoot wide open most of the time hence the sparkle in the eyes is extremely important in my images. Thanks for taking the time to comment. Always appreciate it.


    Thanks so much Woody! Glad you like this one. :wink:

    I think Woody said it best above...

    Your processing is intriguing, I've tried to play with masks, layers, etc but I can't figure it out. Very amazing work as usual!
     
  9. Banhup, looking at this photograph........... you can almost see a whole lifetime in her face and her eyes.

    Exceptional imagery my friend.......... truly exceptional.......... :eek:

    Thank you all for taking the time to look at this pix and sharing your nice comments! Like many of the occupants of this retirement home she has lost a bit of her memory and still have the same stories to share each time I visited her. I have given her a copy of this image and she was so grateful that she has kept this next to her bed. I am glad she likes it too.:smile:

    Banhup I agree with Roy, there are so many stories in this portrait, I would love to be able to do a study on this fine young lady.
     
  15. What Woody said, I like the image a lot.

    Why do I click and open your threads? Why do I do it? Every time, I see an amazing image that just makes me realize how far I have to go. Its very humbling. Yet, I feel compelled every time....to click and look at some of the finest portraiture I've ever seen. Excellent work sir.
     
  17. All I can say is WOW... The photography is awesome, and the subject is stunning. What grace, what wisdom, what compassion in her face... knowledge personified.
     
  18. Wow, this one blew me away. Stunning portrait Banhup!
     
  19. I love your portraits Banhup, I second Woody's words :smile:
