Jules, here's a link to a previous, similar shoot

I haven't been on these forums for a while, but it's great to come on here today and see this fantastic portrait. I love the processing on it as well, a truly terrific photograph.

Thanks.  Much appreciated.

Would love to see some more of your shots from this shoot.

I will definitely show more (here or on Zenfolio), but I need to finish the shooting (I will return to the circus today or Tuesday) and then make a good selection, etc.

Shooting with the Voigtlander was fun, but I need to improve my focusing routine.  There were some shots I missed (but I think AF might have missed them too...)

However, if you liked this image and its desaturated processing, I can point you in the direction of a previous backstage shoot I did in another circus two years ago.  That series is finished:

The processing is not identical but similar.

My processing skills have evolved over the years, but I still feel that style works well for this subject: a bit nostalgic.

I hope you enjoy it (that series was obviously not with the Voigtlander, but with fast Olympus lenses (35-100 & 150) and the Panaleica 25mm).

Thanks for your enthusiasm and encouragement.
