another one for my “after dark” challenge. flying completely manual for this one, i tried to take it as dark as i could while keeping it clear and reasonably balanced. it prolly would have helped to have a few brighter highlights somewhere, but i wasn’t in any position to adjust the available light. i totally forgot to increase the film speed, but i think if i had i may have lost some of the crispness of the hair highlights, although i guess it may have gained me additional sharpness due to a faster shutter speed or i could have stopped down and gained some dof. ah well live and learn, i still like this but that’s prolly cos she’s my baby.
edit: i had a play at making a b&w version and i prefer it. i still like the subtlety of the original but i think the b&w makes a better image.
