    [​IMG]What do you think? a portrait I made a couple of months ago with my beloved 1959 Rolleiflex T.
    The Tessar is amazing even at 5.6! I used Reala.
    The model (my German teacher) declared it was "scary but accute"!
    Your opinion...?:alien::alien::wav:

    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos NOT OK to edit
    It's a nice image. The crop of the hands bothers me a bit though.

    agree with matt about the hands, it was the first thing i noticed.

    Apart from that i think it is a nice picture, the light is appealing and she has the character to make a good photograph.

    I'm tempted to wonder what it would look like in a nice, rich black and white :)

    I too think the hands are a bit of a problem, but because they're just TOO soft.

    I do like the symmetry... a good choice for this portrait.
