About For Joggie, who suggested the b&w. Hope this pleases.
I'm not sure wheteher I prefer the colour in this series of boredom files or the b&w. They both have different aspects of appeal. I do like the 'glow' feeling to the b&w tho'.

Bellissima la contrapposizione tra il volto etereo ed il nero che tenta di avvolgerlo....
Un eccellente lavoro di gioco di luci e contrasti per un bellissimo il viso. Complimenti Rebecca!

Oh yes I see what you mean about using effect or "cheating";-) A fantastic photo so full of mood and quite spooky as well. Excellent in B/W. I can understand why you got these awards, Bek!
Take care

Dear Bek...the awards are well deserved... And the idea of the capture is really well done.- Although for me there are many problems in this image.- Of course IS NOT A HIGH KEY, like some friends said...for me really is a tone eliminate, the background of the head is with low or any detail, must not be a hard question,.
But in the face we can't see the silhouette of the nose, nothing any detail, and at the end the eyes and the lips are really perfect.- Well my dear Bek I try to be honesty...always ... WARMEST Regards. Congratulations by the awards... are well deserved those are the fair play.- LUIS

Great piece of creative work, haven't seen the colour one yet, but love the tones here, and the clarity of the eyes.

Well Done, Becks.

Bek, is this a self portrait? I'm amazed stunned and speachless... this is fantastic with or without photoshop the results are great, and you have just "this" look that seems to put everything in place... congratulations you make a gorgeous model besides a talented photographer.

Regards,

Rod

Ah Rod, you are too kind. I have been tempted many times to post the original of this self-portrait to show how much of a lucky catch it was and how very, very much I love my Photoshop, but I can't bring myself to do it!! I'm shy... LOL
Thanks so much for your very kind comments and your congrats too, much appreciated,

Pffft!! What nonsense Larry! LOL
Robin would kill me for admitting so, but I am the type of photographer that takes the occaisional 'lucky' shot, and then flogs it with ps to bring something out!! What I lack in skill I try to make up for with my pc and a little imagination, couldn't take a quality straight shot to save my life!!
Thanks tho', for your very kind comment, it is very much appreciated.

Paolo, you reply made me smile! I am only an ammeture but feel that I have learned so much in my short time here on Usefilm.
A lot of comments and constructive criticism have benefitted me greatly, but I still have a lot to learn. We are so lucky to be able to access the wealth of worldwide talent that is here on UF!!!
Hope all goes well with your exhibit and that you gain a sponser soon.
All the best to you for your future endeavors, Bek

hi there Bek
I' m very happy to know my commmetns to you was appreciated.
Despite all I think your portfolio is decisely impressive and I have to learn a lot from your Photo to made portrait so strong like yours with a plays between shadows and light so perfect..and at the end all things works well.
I'm also trying to plan my personal exibition in Sidney at the COASIT still I have not reply from the contact person about my proposal for sponsor at the moment. I hope to receive news ASAP from the staff.
Take care
Paolo

Hi there Paolo, thanks for the great comment, much appreciated.
Joggie's suggestion was actually for a different image from the same shoot, titled 'brazen', that I posted yesterday. I preferred that one in colour, but knew this one was perfect for b&w.
