That's an excellent portrait with perfect black and white treatment that bring out the details with directness and without the distraction of colours. The face of the old lady has a certain kindness and we can only hope that the optimism she expresses will someday come true.
Thanks for adding me as a favourite. I am indeed honoured.

An excellent B&W portrait. Smart choice of tight crop to accentuate the old woman’s face with splendid sharpness. Very nice photo with nice light contrast and very good POV choice.
Very well done.
Wish you a nice Sunday.

Another smart choice of black & white to express the detail of human form. An expressive regard from this lady, you seem to have made a good connection with her eyes firmly placed forward. I like this lower point of view as well, it feels as if she's sharing knowledge to a younger generation, a smaller child perhaps. A strong portrait handled with care and conscious. Well done! Enjoy the new day. All the best.

At first looking at this shot my thoughts were
that it wasa a statue Then I understood
that she was a lady with wrinkles on her face
its a very artistic portrait truly artistic
and perfectly executed showing delicate
details with a photo which has been
converted into black and white
its an impressive capture
have a nice new week

annjackman (21899) 2014-03-30 1:34
Your low viewpoint and tight framing are excellent. There is lovely detailed on her winkled face. The b/w conversion works well.
Best wishes, Ann

You had explained well why a B&W format chosen, farhat, and you might be just right about.
Fine portrait on a very close range to her, show the details mentioned beautifully.
Her look onto the camera, not revealing a surprise she might had when saw you - but neither harsh reaction or an inquisitive look, yet an acceptance of the moment.
Fine taken and well presented.
SnapRJW (31629) 2014-03-30 2:41
Hello Farhat - A creative upwards POV adds an attractive twist to this B&W portrait. Nicely detailed with a good feel for personality, well done.
snunney (100740) 2014-03-30 3:00
A fine portrait of this elderly lady. I like the upwards point of view, which is rather unusual in a portrait. Excellent choice of black and white to concentrate the attention on the subject.
jhm (154548) 2014-03-30 3:26
Notwithstanding a black and white portrait but very well made.
Very nice captured and lovely composition, good presentation too.
Sharpness and clarity be superb.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice day,
delpeoples (58576) 2014-03-30 3:29
This lady probably would not like hearing that you thought she was wrinkled : ) But her face certainly tells a story. I can only imagine the difficult life she has led. I like how close you got in here, and the upward POV. The light was difficult, but it gives it a very certain mood. Excellent B&W.
marabu61 (11061) 2014-03-30 4:01
A strong portrait of this old lady, that thanks to the black and white approach brings her facial impressions perfectly across. The face speaks of a long and hard life lived to the fullest.
have a great sunday
kato (11630) 2014-03-30 4:46
You're capturing well this portrait by a good macro and excellent B/W tone/clarity, so it's impressive to see the middle aged lady who has deep wrinkles in a frame. The dignity of life is felt from her expression. And. it's also impressive in the hood on head and a bracelet.
UlfE (14641) 2014-03-30 6:48
A bit different from what you are normally posting and I certainly enjoy when someone tries something different. This is superb portrait. The low perspective and the lady's arm digonally across the photo make it very special. One of the best photos in your gallery. TFS and have a nice day!
Fis2 (99686) 2014-03-30 7:41
A very interesting woman, face and hands are impressive.
Good frame and light.
The black and white increase this emotions.
holmertz (54293) 2014-03-30 8:56
An interesting and vary naturalistic portrait, totally unflattering. The low POV gives the old woman a dominant position, making her appear as a strong and vigorous person despite her old age and wrinkles.
Schnappilic (9692) 2014-03-30 9:32
Congratulations for this splendid B/W portrait. Very expressive!
imageme (1790) 2014-03-30 9:40
Hi Farhat, She has a simple mind but with great heart. You have successfully captured her nature. Your perspective has shown the best side of hers. Beautiful portrait with good light and B/W tones along with clarity. The winkles have marked her hard life in the past. Best regards
clic (17265) 2014-03-30 13:33
The black treatment suits well to the portrait of this experienced woman who stunningly wears an ornament on her nose as young townies ladies do!
The essence of wisdom is seen here!
RhodieIke (11744) 2014-03-30 22:23
What a fantastic portrait of this old Northern Birbhum lady. She looks like a lady who can tell a few stories of the past.
Splendid in B@W, gives it a super quality.
Well managed and presented, Tfs,

Ciao Farhat, great portrait, intense expression, excellent clarity and splendid light, very well done my friend, ciao Silvio
ourania (47120) 2014-03-31 12:16
you've done a great work here, creating a very interesting, expressive and intimate portrait. I like very much your upward point of view and how you framed the lady's face with dynamic diagonals. Eyes, mouth and hands are very intriguing, the textured skin is fascinating too. The tight framing and the monochrome have enhanced the impact of all the significant parts and the general appeal of the portrait. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,
krzychu30 (15512) 2014-04-02 0:24
this is a perfect portrait,which shows what every picture of that kind should have.
Superb and very strong expression,excellent timing and well chosen close-up make the shot really successful.
Have a nice day
willperrett (11080) 2014-04-02 2:07
I've looked at your more recent posting of the same lady looking at a mobile 'phone, and liked the juxtaposition of the traditional and the modern. But this is the more significant photograph. You did well to choose monochrome here, for the reason you identify yourself; but it's the proximity to the subject and the resultant frame-filling composition which really gives it its quality. I guess you asked her permission, but you've succeeded in capturing her without her posing or looking awkward or embarrassed.
adramad (46496) 2014-04-02 11:18
Wonderful .... this close-up portrait of this lady, I love how you played with shadows and lights, which give magnificent sharpness and texture of her skin.
Well done. I like.
All the best.
Miguel82 (27646) 2014-04-02 18:53
A touching portrait of that old lady Fabbs, time and hard life conditions are visible on her face expression but she tries to smile, regards
halikarnas (7686) 2014-04-04 9:06
Çok başarılı bir siyah-beyaz portre.
Netlik ve ışık harika.
fabianoleite (11763) 2014-04-16 8:12
Excellent work. The wrinkles and lines on the face of the old woman creted nice contrasts for a black and white. The approximation was just right, and the expression was well shown, shoing great timing, as well. Good work, congratulations!

Portrait of a beautiful display. Very well done. I love it.
