Leonardo

I was taking photographs of the window and shadow when the painter stood in front. Mind you it was his house and he is my father in law so i willcut him a bit of slack. Really just a change in levels and a mono conversion.

I think that this is a great capture
nev: great comment thanks aussie kate
Isn't it funny how great shots happen when you don't plan them? Did you show your father-in-law this picture?
nev: i think my window shot was looking pretty good without the subject smile i think he has now checked it out Kay thanks for that.

excellent photo. True professional.
nev: truely professional comment thanks Neil. thanks for dropping by mate
its one of those pictures where i don't know why i like it but i do.

the b+w is lovely and your dad-in-law looks likes he is dancing some devised piece of contemporary self expression against a stark modernist backdrop.
nev: thanks russell for your take on things. I am getting all sorts of images of him doing improv dance now.
Just enough detail, just enough mystery. Beautiful lighting on your subject and what makes it for me are those glasses hooked onto his t-shirt, adding a little touch of personality. Love it.
nev: thanks Jose you are right about the personality thing. He always seems to have a pair latched on his shirt.

Yup. Like Kay said, those moments you aren't planning...and like PP said, the glasses hanging on the T-shirt! And perfect in mono.
nev: thanks ginnie sometimes we get lucky with these things

Fathers always get slack cut for them, if they are rich, stronger than you or just a plain nice guy. So which is he?

I must say that at least he improved you picture smile

Great capture and as they say 'with atmosphere', enhanced by the b&w.
nev: If we had a bill of rights i would plead the fifth or whatever there Louis. Looks lke you say that in hope that you kids will cur you a little. I did take some shots of the window by itself and it is a close call.

This is a great shot, Neal! The light on the person is perfect and the regular background keeps the viewer focused on that. You should take the inlaws on all your photo shoots grin
nev: might get a little strange with the inlaws in all the photos. up stairs for thinking though martin.
good light work...any idea how it looks without the white border?
nev: i think it looks better sam. i just went with the defaults when i posted it. thanks

all about light and atmosphere! beautiful. mal
nev: i don't think the painter knew i was trying to create art whilst he was working that ceiling. thanks Mal
A touch of mystery with the arm position, nice one Neal
nev: i had one with his face in full view. there was something about the mystery as you say which made me want to post this one.
