An old slide taken in Namibia, I scanned the slide and cleaned up a bit. The beautiful model being a good friend of mine and always willing to improve my camera skills. How time flies by.

Hello Erwin,
You must be privileged to still have her as a friend. The image conveys the severity of the Namibian sun very well. She is beautiful whatever the circumstances. I dared doing a WS but very good as is. Hope you are OK with it.

Hi Erwin

Please understand this is my opinion only and not meant to offend or annoy. Many will disagree with me anyway.
Personally, I can't see the point of posting photos that are nearly 40 years old on a site such as this.
I think the lighting is much too harsh and has resulted in deep shadow on her face. This has resulted in an almost lack of detail in this area. It has also caused an unattractive dash of light just to the left of her mouth. There is a branch growing out of the top of her head, the branches to the right of her face are distracting as is the tiny white spot just below her eye. I do like the way the branch and trunk frame the subject though.

I hope you don't mind, but I've done a workshop for my own amusement.
