A very interesting and effective portrait from a street artist!
I like the expressions on her face, emerging out as a 3-D against the well chosen black BG. The sharpness and POV are simply perfect.

Very well seen, my friend!

Hello Francis,

It was my first impression that this is a sculptured woman. How wrong I was. Lovely lighting across her face. The side profile shows her curly hair and bonnet well. Best regards.

Hello Francis

The silver treatment in photoshop makes her look much older than she really is. A superb profiled portrait of the street actress with good tonal range, dof & sharpness. Tfs!

Hi Francis,
This superb portrait seems coming rightly from the past! Very good PP work enhancing the silver tones and the gorgeous light falling on her face. Excellent angle, her profil and glance show an interesting expression.
Creative and original work! Annie

The real one without an effect added to it , wow she was all.... well silvery that is ! I have to say that your work Francis is not dull or predictable if i may say , you have the ability to go from one style today to another one tomorrow and keep your viewers all the while on the nerves shall i say , your motifs are as different as they should be , you are like a chameleon and that is what i like about you , keep them coming oh i only wish i could keep up with you , hi hi, you are highly productive!

HI Francis..nice shot..I like the angle and perspective as well as the light...

dear Francis Xavier,
your nice expression of the impressive street actress,
almost silver figure with partial pale blue and red shows me her unusual face in usual performance,
strange smile on eye and mouth is shining on silver reflection,
thank you for your wonderful shot,

Hello Francis Xavier! Very sophisticated idea and work. Superb silver portrait. Good low POV and capture. Fantastic effect. Well done!

Hello dear Francis!

Best Regards,
