The quiet contemplate

Yet another portrait.

Thanks to everybody for their comments on my portraits this week, I really appreciate it when people take time out of their busy schedules to write me something. As always ALL comments are welcome. What do you think about the portraits so far?

On to todays shot. All my portraits have been slightly different and todays is no exception.               What do we think of in our times of loneliness? What plagues ur mind in those reflective instances? Thats the mood of this shot. However it might mean something different to you, as we all have different thought patterns. Your thoughts my people.

Another different portrait 2moro, so please come back.

Love the capture, Yes I know I am a sucker for portrait shots. Love the grainy sepia effects. Just makes the imqge stand out more. Different from the ordinary. More portraits please smile

Ade, when did you do this? You complained that you didn't have anything to put up. To tell you the truth I think this is the best you've come up with in a while. Well done.
I feel like this picture has too much grain/noise. But otherwise I like it.
Woah... fits the title very well. The noise grain seems to go well here too. Very arty farty har har (try to say that in a posh way).
A very moody picture! Love the soft sepia tone!

NICE. The grain sepia effects (thanks for the education Suby) sort of makes her look like she's a different world (The quiet contemplation is apt). Her upper body and head make up over 65% of the picture and I'm drawn more into imagining what she's thinking rather than how she looks etc.

I can't fault this one mate. Well done.

i like the fact that you are giving varying potraits rather than trying to beat the previous ones you'd put up. This just really shows how versatile you are in your expressions. Well done mate. Another job well done

I didn't see lonliness here, but maybe because that is not an emotion I feel often. I just see someone enjoying her alone time (something as a homeschooling mom of five I don't get a lot of.) ;o) Fabulous photo. The grain/noise worked so well. Perfect lighting.
oh yeah! i love the grain. very photodocumentaryreallifegetintothesubject kinda thing. lovely. i'm now smiling.
What a fine grain! Very nice sweet portrait.

Like what I have seen looking back a few days! The portraits are great. This one evokes a great sense of deep thought.

i love the grainy realism on this!
When we think of the typical portrait, we think of the subject looking at the camera attempting to project happiness through a forced smile. I like how the subject projects the feeling of being alone in a private moment. It is almost voyeuristic.

I really like it. She is very pretty here, and possibly a little sad. The grain and tone really adds.

Great reflective portrait. I love the portraits that show emotion, rather than smiling for the camera.
This is nice! The grains really add value to this one.. I love the titles of your potraits too.. it is just right..
i thought she was sleeping initially. perhaps u could try to place the camera slightly lower and shoot up to show the expression on the eyes? smile

Yeah! This is what I like to see. Nice black and white.. nice window lighting. Excellent expression and composition. It's so rare to see grain well done these days.
