    Took this in Lothbury, an arched passage behind the Bank of England.

    Well I can't take credit for that! :p

    That's very cool!

    Thanks buddy! Likewise with your photos. You get superb detail, can see every pore in her skin. And I like your use of crushing the blacks slightly with the tone curve for that faded look, it's something I've enjoyed adding a little of to some of my photos. And yes, she's beautiful. :)

    Black and white is my thing now, if I could produce a wedding shoot with only black and white, I would, actually I think I will for the next shoot!

    Thanks. :) The only thing I've since noticed on the B&W that I should probably try and correct is that my processing and added vignette has made her arms and legs look a little blotchy. I don't know if that's particularly noticeable to others though.

    Very nice. #2 & #5 for me all day long. #2 has an amazing face. #5 has excellent DOF and an almost candid street look.

    Cheers!

    #2 is a new barber that started at my friend's barbershop this month, only met her once but she needed some headshots for social. She was self conscious at first but after seeing the results has opened up! #5 is my friend's wife going way back who helps me out with portrait experiments on location. For that one I wanted to go for a Marvel's Jessica Jones vibe which I think worked out :D

    Seeing all the street photos earlier though makes me want to go back out and shoot street again properly as it's been too long. Soon!
