hi sundew!

this is, without doubt, one of the best blak and white photos i have seen here on TL recently :)

the tones are strong and look great, and so is the composition, one girl in focus, other not :)

then there's a slight hint of 'grain' which i think is crucial to blakc and white photography :) it adds more depth and mood :)

wonderful :) thanks for sharing :)

hi gundega
great shot. the look of the two girls is interesting and you captured it very well. great compo and perspective.
have a nice time

Hi Gundega,
the composition is fantastic with the wall in the foreground
and the positioning of the characters.Incredible focus and
great eyes here.Marvelous job.

The expression says it all. This is a kind of Portrait where the Old Master Painters of yester years would love to paint. Composition is greatly helped by the strong contrast "Chiarascuro" effect and the figure behind balances but does not detract from the main subject. The rough texture of the wall on the left of the subject also balances the smooth texture of the skin on the girl face. Bravo for a great work.

Hello Gundega! Your shot is simply amazing, like the rest of your work! The image is very powerful, and the children's faces are so expressive! It's almost like they're saying "Go away, we don't want you here, you're invading our personal space!" The image processing is also masterful, no negative comments there. Congratulations!

in fact, there is nothing to add. Found the BW excellent, the composition excellent, the models excellent, what else?

Best regards

Poignant B&W portrait. Love it.

Magnifique B&w bravo.
