50 mono portraits at 50mm : No. 45 : Nottingham Pride 2

Another monochrome portrait from Nottingham Pride takes me into the mid 40's on my portrait series.

I probably have another one or possibly two monochrome transvestite pictures to post in the series as I edge my way towards the end of my project.

I used the same processing parameters in Rawtherapee as I did for my previous mono shot.

There is not too much tonal difference between the dark hair and the background, giving the image quite a darkroom style mono feel
Makes for a striking mono, nicely done.

@alinz thanks Ali

@tracie8266 thank you very much Tracie

@dulciknit thanks Alison I don't know if my tones are too dark on this, maybe I needed to take the co yeast down a little

An exceptional capture in mono, Phil. I wouldn't have dared taking the person's photo for sure.

@gamelee interesting indeed Lee, it was a good event to photo , you would have liked it. I doubt Bolton has a pride event, but Manchester does (although I think it has been and gone, saw something on Sky news a couple of weeks ago)

@busylady thanks judith, it was too good an opportunity to miss a few portraits

@annied they are indeed annie.

@happypat thanks Pat, the parade was over in 30 minutes, but I got some intersting shots

@sangwann thanks dione , everybody at the event was really happy to be photographed
