une magnifique photo en N&B, la lumière et les contrastes sont bien gérés.
J'aime bien ce gros plan et le découpage des silhouettes.

sepia is a lovely choice for this image making it feel timeless and elegant. A finely timed moment that you captured here and I really like your framing too

this is an interesting upload with good use being made of the silhouettes to provide interest.
The choice of slight toning works very well.

Wonderful study in silhouette almost, making good use of the outside light, like the artistic result achieved. Thanks for sharing a nice photo.

I like this very much Dwaipan. The composition is very well considered and your semi-silhouetted elements have sufficient detail in them to allow the shot to be understood and the narrative enjoyed. Super! Warm regards Rosemary

great choice of monochrome medium to give the scene its expressiveness!
But there is much more about this work I enjoy-like for example perfect framing and timing,whcih make the scene takes on a new,unique character.

Hi NAMASTE dear Dwaipayan, how are you?
Sorry for my no contact as so busy recently
Very well and deeply considered sjhot, right? Th contarst of light and shades are so attractive and some mysterious. Boy's back look is very very good accent.
All the best and have a good new week! TAKERO

This is a lovely shot, the use of shapes, dark silhouettes and light give this a delicate balance, especially as the subject is not in the foreground. It is a creative portrait.
