excellent, GS, wonderful "open" shadows in the background, since this is not a portrait I will not quibble about the dark side of her face. If it were a portrait a little fill light would be in order. I think this is really a B&W image, color wouldn't improve it.

... it occurred to me I probably misunderstood your comment. This is a color image ...

colors would have made this a Vermeer but with that window contrast, mono works quite well ...all that chroma noise perhaps wouldn't look so good in colors ?

Sorry Clayton, this is a mono version.

I was assuming people would prefer the "old master" effect that Dee alludes to with his "Vermeer" reference. But I dabbled with a mono anyway and while I was twiddling with the tint I suddenly had some sort of memory flashback which had something to do with "Be-Ro" flour. So I warmed to the version without really understanding why.

A quick search of the 'net revealed the flashback was probably to do with the recipe books that the company that owned the brand "Be-Ro" used to publish and distribute for free.

Thanks for your comments, they are much appreciated.

Personally, I looked at this and thought "Chekov".

You're getting something right and I'll bet the cloud one doesn't come close to triggering the variety you've managed to engender with the mono version.

Thanks Mike, but being the poorly read philistine that I am, I don't understand the reference to "Chekov".

Great light... enough to tell the story.

Thanks Rob. I've recently been back there and managed to catch some different characters doing different chores, so I hope to share some of the results soon.
