What a wonderful portrait where (as you already mentioned) light plays a superb role in giving this picture an extraordinary look, Roger!
Great details and well shown skin tones with nice management of exposure.
The POV is excellent, and the black BG gives well contrast to the strong facial features of your model.
Another finely executed work from you!
Have a nice weekend.

Yes central placing and strong side lighting, plus dark colours creates an authoratative portrait which resembles a painting. Nice job

Beautiful. Just wonder what if reduce the empty space a bit more. Perhaps it will stronger ?:)

I like your portrait of Molly and you have certainly achieved the effect of an oil painting. The subdued colours work very well. I note what you say about the negative space but can't help feeling a square crop may have worked well.

A superb head and shoulders portrait of this charming woman and the negative space adds to the composition imho. Another fine entry in this series. Good sharpness & diffused lighting with good color & saturation. Tfs!

Hello Roger, I have just discovered this lovely shot of yours!
The lighting is very 'Wyeth', even your model has a look of one of Wyeth's models, or is it just the lighting that makes me think that?
I do like the way that you are experimenting all the time with your portraits, you have some fantastic shots.
Excellent work.I would like to be able to sit in on one of your 'shoots' and hear what you say to your models; the shots are always so natural.
Tfs, regards Jean.
