Power had gone out, so I took advantage of the window light, but it was still very dark.

I updated the picture recently to lighten the eyes, but I don't have access to it from work.

Andrew, your portrait has good potential, I think !
It deserves some post processing to add some local contrast, sharpen just a little the eyes, maybe some vignetting to concentrate our eyes on the model's face.
Not an easy task but it should be worth while.

Attila,

I'm always wondering why your wife has a face skin so perfect - don't destroy my (presumed good) perception saying to me that's just photoshop...

Great high key portrait,

Cheers,

Renato

Attila,

Say her that without retouching is as perfect as my son 10 months old!

I'll jet an eye on the book when the opportunity comes, thanks,

Renato

I went to the Seahawks' Super Bowl parade in downtown Seattle on Wednesday -- what a great event for Seattle! 700,000 well-behaved fans turned out to cheer on the players, most of whom looked like they were having a good time, although by the time they passed our offices some of them looked a little cold! These two guys were a microcosm of the parade, fan and hero.





These were shot with a Nikkor 50-300mm f4.5 ED on a D600 at 1/1000th and f5.6 or 8.

I took this photo of Bob Drewel, former Snohomish County executive, creator of Sound Transit and retired leader of the Puget Sound Regional Council, while interviewing him for a couple of stories about the landslide in Oso, Wash. It was shot at the kitchen table at his home overlooking the Stillaguamish River. Nikkor 50mm f1.2 at about f4 and I think about ISO 1600.
