Lovely character study, obviously taken quickly. Highlights vivid though Derek, I'd maybe burn in a little - might be my pc screen rendering them very bright though. Nice shot.

I did use split grade printing to try and get the highlights down Graeme, but I agree a bit more burning in would probably help.

My screen shows the same burned out highlights. It is such a good character shot that it is certainly worth trying to get detail back into the highlights for no other reason than, as they are on my screen, they in fact distract my attention from the centrepiece which is the old lady's stance and expression


I wonder how successful a pre-flash or even a post fogging flash as I think Les McLean calls it, would be?


No experience at it myself but I think that even a slight fogging effect i.e. beyond the inertia point, might be worth the risk.

I agree with all the comments above.


It's a great catch and it's a shame about the overexposed highlights. Sad


I'd love to see an updated version when you're ready with it Derek.
