I dont do portraits, but . . .
3.8.09 Chris Spracklen

I don't do portraits, but . . .

. . . when the chance comes along ~ take it!

And so it did when one of my daughter-in-laws decided to try on the maid's outfit at a stately home we were visiting!

(Naomi, my dear, you looked lovely!)

Nikon D300 ,Nikkor 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6g IF-ED AF-S DX VR
Used AutoFX 'Tone and Tint' to get the slightly 'distressed' look and PhotoFrame 4 Pro to put the mount on! full exif

other sizes: small medium large original

This is an awesome looking shot. The maid's outfit is perfect. It really looks like an old, antique photo! Thanks for sharing.

This a wonderful portrait, Naomi is a beautiful woman and you saw her perfectly.
A most excellent monochrome work and light from the window was flattering to her beauty.
Very nice snap shot album frame.
I love this portrait .

This is a lovely pose Chris. The soft tones are excellent and a good choice to use black and white. I also like the framing as its very fitting to the period. Naomi have a sweet expression and a delicate charm.BV!!!
