Black-And-White Photo Competition 4 2014 : Entry Number 708

A beautiful and strange, even mysterious, portrait. It draws our attention and the daring composition makes it work and keep us interested.

Photographers Comment

Thank you so much to all the judges for selecting and awarding this with the mark of excellence. Really humbled and honored to be considered amongst all the other selected awardees. The setting is set against a restaurant entrance before the opening hours and using a shallow depth of field coupled with the lighting of the passageway behind the model helps to overall bring the focus back to the model. Leica Monochrom + Noctilux 0.95 ASPH shot wide opened.
