Hi All:

Wanted to post an image of a friend of mine. I have a color version which she likes. She has very bright red hair and a very green sweater on but I consider myself a BW photographer and usually just show BW. Would be interested in your thoughts.

**UPDATED WITH COLOR IMAGE**

It's a nice image. But being pretty much a color photographer, I would have liked to see that, too.

The tones in the hair are wonderful. When you say she has brilliant red hair and a strong green sweater, i'm even more drawn to see her in full color.

I'd only address a few of the flyaways but other than that it's a very nice photo of your friend.

Thank you Photoguy, longbeachgary, CanonCameraFan, goodink and BrickR.

I love bw. Its becoming a favorite image of mine.

goodink, I do thank you for pointing out the flyaway. They don't bother me and I think they add to the character and tone of the image.

I'm photographing other clergy so I hope to post some more.

She reminds me of Lorina McKinnett. Would even more so if it was color . . .

Oh yes! That is what color is for!


My wife is not a redhead, but knows how I love red hair. She still loves me. :)
