Hi all,

I'm not too experienced with digital b/w - but I'm enjoying beginning to dabble.

For the image below I've heavily darkened the background surround (with, kind of, a Holga effect vignette). Now, this has made the clipped the blacks well beyond anything I'd ever normally do with colour. Is this acceptable/normal practice with digital BW processing? Will it digitally print ok?

I've already received some feedback from friends on the picture itself - but I'd like a wider concensus:

Please feel free to criticise in any thoughtful way you wish.

Well done, I like it. Add catchlights on the girl at the back, and you got a winner.
