I think that Andy might just have squeaked through to a win on this one . . .
Well done Andy!
Thank you to all who voted for my effort
Squeaked through is exactly right Howard, I knew the shot I was after and this one came close to what I wanted to achieve. I did however make a fatal error in not double checking the ISO level settings
before requesting the pose and accordingly had a fight on my hands to pull the image into shape post processing.
It would have been a better shot if I had set up a reflector to bounce the light back from the right, but in capturing the moment her ladyship dictates and would not have put up with preliminary staging and adjustments to get it spot on.
