Great portrait.

I really like how you have used the light to get this 'dark' effect.


Welcome Brugmans!
I think you've outdone yourself for a first shot here on treklens, and I hope to see more of your work in the future!

I like the contrast of light and shadow, the way the face seems to melt into the dark background!
very cool

Wonderfull work. Good portrait. The picture is really dramatic.

Welcome to TL.

Hi Burgmans. Welcome! Very cold (menacing) shot you got here. Good framing and use of light.

Un regard profond et impressionnant.
Superbe résultat en noir et blanc.
