Absolutely stunning! I just have to start with this, its an absolutely outstanding photograph, and stands out from the usual portraits I see on here.
The textures of this piece are really prominent due to the black and white of this photograph, and makes the light and shadows stand out so much more.
The woman's nose stud adds a very interesting texture, as does the different materials used in her dress and headscarf.
The slightly blurred background makes the woman stand out so much, and makes her seem more in focus and more detailed, and makes the impact so much larger!
All in all, this is a fabulous, outstanding, beautiful piece. Well done!
