Thanks to Kinglan, I reworked his beautiful portrait.
Fortunately, he sent to me the original capture in RAW format. I tried to give some softness in the B/W tones.
Hope you'll like it :-)

Pierre, thanks for the pointers on this one. You've definitely given it a much softer tone, easier to look at. Feel free to give me any more pointers in the future, I greatly appreciate it!

Very nice rework of Kinglan's poignant portrait. It's great that someone who does these National Geographic "Afghan Girl" type shots. Should edit this one. Pierre, you do these portraits so well. Great work by both of you.

Beautiful portrait...excellent combination of subject and background. The shawl is also good. The only jarring element in the photo is that oddly cabled knitted "sleeve", exposing the bare shoulder. Looks too modern, even trendy, for the photo, ditto the neckline showing below the shawl. (I'd like this photo to take me back to very early America, and I can't imagine the Ananzi using knitting needles, although I could be wrong.) All that said, the overwhelming good elements of this photograph ought to win awards and I hope it is exhibited.

wow, that is really nice. Her eyes are soulful and she is very pretty herself. i have to say, i like this version more than the original(sorry) Merely because it is softer and makes her look not so harsh. Very Nice

Beautiful work Pierre. I like this one a lot.

A fine composition to work with, provided by Ian's eye. So, a split on the kudos. ;o)

Thanks to both of you for sharing this one with us. Love images such as this one.

^5's Ian as well.
