Fantastic Portrait Orio Very Happy
You have really captured her nubile beauty.
B+W adds some innocents and mystery to this subject in my view.
Nice choice

Thanks Andy
I agree completely on the BW - it has magic for portraits, even if this is "just" a digital BW
Anna has gorgeous hair so for this conversion I worked for it, I mean the hair, to bring them out.
It was a bit painful work because Capture one is not as friendly as Lightroom
buy IMO it handles colour better.
I selected each of the ranges and tweaked luminosity/saturation to obtain the balance that would convert best to fit the subject in BW
Not something I would do everyday but for pictures you care about it's worth.
My only regret on this shot, I would have liked her to use a less "busy" dress - I'm for simplicity. But I had to take what was given.
I love the Planar 85 Very Happy

Great skin tone, and you achieved what you wanted with the hair. Superb!

I am convinced it is Smile
It is not "perfect" and flawless as the contemporary apo lenses - but gawd what personality. In certain situations, it takes you to the heavens.
