An expressive portrait with perfect tonality. Best regards.

Landrum Kelly

Thank you, Aungshita.

The image and the woman are simply lovely.



Les Berkley

That is NOT proof of the existence of God, unless He wishes only His image to be perfect, and others to have green skin tone and lack sharp focus.

This image, OTOH, is certain proof that the Designer is at work...

Landrum Kelly

Thank you, Rashed.

This was shot at an African-American college, Les.  Not everyone is a Caucasian melanin-deprived mutant who is going to show up on the print/web in some shade of pink. 

There is no inductive proof, in any case, Les.  No seriously philosophizing here. . . .

Mark, it was a candid shot made on a walk-through of a crowded room.  I was happy to get it as it is. 

I don't agree with all of your compositional rules, and I refuse to submit to Olan Mills criteria of greatness.


Landrum Kelly

Thanks, Allen.  The focal plane seems to have been about five to six inches behind her eyes, so that at this aperture they are not quite within the "circle of confusion" that we call "in focus."

Lannie: Nicely done, candids are tough to get perfect!  Sometimes the purists just don't see the real story in a photo. Tom

The focus may not be perfect but this is a very nice portrait just as it is. Regards.
