Very very nice both of these portraits each for it's own merrits. I especially like the bottom picture though.
Q, you really have a nice way of presenting your subjects in portraits. A special talent for sure.
Both are nice shots but I'm partial to the top shot. I like the way you lit it from the side instead of the front. I also think the black and white makes for a good presentation.
Thank you for taking the time to look at our blog, we appreciate your comments!
