an excellent portrait in a perfect light. How did you get this dark and smooth background ? Great !

This is a tremendous image. Very dramatic and still understated. Did you edit that background, or was it really that uniformly dark?

This is an excellent portrait image with wonderful, soft lighting. I really like the choice of B&W format as it has created even more emphasis onto the characterful face. Tones and clarity are superb.

Superbe portrait, d'une grande qualité technique, et très expressif. J'aime l'idée du cadrage décalé qui laisse cet espace libre où se perd le regard triste et amer de cet homme.

This portrait in black and white is pure poetry! It's different and extremely dramatic with a black background. Set off to one side and with the face turned inward, the composition simple, but superlative. The subject has a visage that would well be captured on a canvas with oil paints. Do you paint?

Hi Veronica, A magnificent profile of this very interesting man, B/W is always a great pick of any type of portrait, to me it brings out the detail, here is no exception, the wire hair & the overall lighting stands-out brilliantly against the dark gray background, TFS, kind regards Wilson.

a perfect work in the framing and the management of the lumiére this neutral bottom and the shift of the character are excellent, a purity in the clearness of the lines of the face, a portrait carried out perfectly

Veronica It impresses the quality of your pictures. This taking is a beautiful example, framed very well within the picture, with a special texture. The B& W is perfect for this shot
