A most uncommon, rather splendid looking woman in my opinion.

Is that a Rollieflex TLR she's using?

2.8 FX 80...brings back the glory days...It's the first thing I saw looking back ...the shot edited the 5D11 out and chose to run for the TLR...serendipitous gentle prodding by the Gods not to leave that 6x6 yet...I keep a file of self portraits from their random appearances on the scene...swung by this one in the files yesterday while looking for something else and it started to beg some tone mapping...now that it is in the bw I'm looking forward to some gradient mapping.

I  also am not ready to forfeit the beautiful fold from tripod head through left knee...Thought you might like the basic original...I kept seeing the black crease at the top that day , seeing seabird and then seeing the cold wind swept sea...I think my eyes are happier with dog cone vision...but gotta grap the color to be able to play with the sensitivities...

I love being alive...PS I was actually given my uncle's old tlr when I graduated eons ago...

Original (color) is very nice, but the BW is super!

I don't like the color at all...I was after those tonalities to work with in the overlapping cast shadow and rock shadow...the part of the color that I want to work into the bw is that beautiful crease in the granite across my torso and left leg...that area in the bw is not informed of that architecture...I'm going to enjoy working that back into the file..

Reminds me of a Nazca line drawing.

This one is going to taunt me for awhile...I've managed to reveal the "bones" but with trade-offs from the original...
