(one of my personal top 10, definitely)
Thank you,all !
It's my most interesting picture (2010),according to Flickr , my favourite ,forever, according to me :)))
and my most honoured one / FP by Admins' choice or winner in several portrait-contests here and out of the Internet in a French Photo magazine Réponses Photo / ethnic portraits contest , only printed on paper , only monochrome - Thanks!
Analog picture-Tri-X (it was my favourite film because of its grain)
Nikon F801.Nikkor 85/1,8 AF
January / February 2006 . Burma .Mandalay area
in fact this is the scan of the printed image , not of the negative , so I did not have to do post-processing, or almost ; just had to crop from horizontal to square ,and I applied a sepia toning to the reflection on the left side
And the grain isn't made with a software !!!
