The lady who took me for a 'cruise' to see Hoi An from the river. She was smiling most of the time, but I guess she got a little fed with me taking her photograph. A great lived in face, made for black and white. Increased the contrast to highlight her wrinkles.

Wow this face tells a story. Powerful portrait you show us here. B&W is a good choice.

Wow, what a powerful portrait.Incredible how crisp her eyes are; you can almost make out the reflections of the ferry. Cudos to you!

What an excellent close crop Neil and just so beautifully detailed. I wish I could see this much bigger, there are some interesting reflections in the lady's eyes which I cannot quite make out at this scale. Fabulous. Warm regards Rosemary

This is one of the more powerful portraits I've seen in a while. This face is a work of art, and your B/W presentation is perfect. I can look at this face for a while and find more details every time. A really strong photo...

such a good b&w portrait, so much detail. Like how we can see you reflected in her eyes, in the boat looking back at us :)
