Well I had a very mixed reaction to yesterday's post and to be honest I was disappointed on the whole.
For me this portrait has something. As soon as shot it I liked it from the first look at the screen on the camera and I guess that's all that really matters.
However I wasn't convinced, as I said, that I'd extracted the best from it. So I went back today, took a fresh look and a different approach. This is the result and I have to say I'm happier with it. I'd be very interested in reactions to both and one against the other.
