Not really sure what I'm doing here among such outstanding picutres. People obviously seems to know what they are doing.
I think this is a portrait. Its in B&W. That's a start.

Geez.! I need to get a camera like that.
If it will make my wife look that good, I'll have 2.

This is a nice photo, I like the light and mood in it. What could have made it better is that the woman looked out to the window and to the light, like dreaming of a trip she is planning, or alternatively looked straight at the lens.

For a start you nailed it. There more to B&W than desaturation of color, and everyone here is learning just like you. Keep posting!

Thanks Pekka.
That's my wife there. I would never suggest for her to do anything, let alone disturb her reading. She's from Manchester, you see and without lifting her head one millimeter she would tell me to F off.
I'm inclined never to disturb what catches my eye as well. Who am I to alter coincidence for the sake of a 'better' photo?

Cheers

You need not alter, simply stick around and wait for the subjects to give you better photos themselves.

Exactly. Patience, and the right moment presents itself. You just keep the eyes open and the camera ready.
