Nice candid capture.
She looks a little worried.
The soft rendition of the B&W is good - perhaps a little extra contrast may make it appear snappier.
Well done.

I unfortunately saved this for flickr at a very low res, hence the lack of contrast
it seems a lot more satisfying when looking at my original for print copy
Candid this is not, tray was well aware I was taking her shot, i think she is getting better at ignoring my camera

thanks ash

A very nice portrait - I would not say that is worry on her face - the expression is hard to nail down to a signle word or emotion but it is one of things I like about the shot, makes me wonder more.

The softness just pulls me into the quiet moment... I too love her expression. This is one of your best of tray IMO...

But pay close attention... Once they start ignoring your camera, you may not be far behind

Great shot. I agree with Deacon. She looks like more concentrated (the open mouth) than worried. The softness works well with this kind of "candid" expression.

Nice portrait, Taff.
I think it would have more impact with a crop on the right side.

Thank you
