Pleased to report my print of this won the ADAPS Annual Print competition, Portraits section, and also the best overall print award. It was shot on a Pentax MX-1 in the chapel at Arley Hall and shows my Mum in reflective mood.
Best regards, John

Very high contrast makes a striking result. There's just enough faint toning coming through in the surrounds to give a sense of a bigger space. It certainly looks tailor made for printing. Congrats on the win!

Great result John - what a good portrait. As Nigel says, just enough toning in the dark areas to show the bigger space

Congratulations John it is very special, I can't think of anything to say that could do it justice - an example of how our art can be.

Best Regards to you and your wonderful subject

I recall you first posting this one. Lovely tribute to one's mum (who must be more pleased than you are!)

Mum was "tickled pink" to be a winner. Thanks for all the comments!

It was printed to A3.
Best regards, John
