About the Image(s)

On our trip to the Black Country Museum last year, we were there whilst they had folk dressed up for a recreation of a TV series in the UK - "Peaky Blinders". I took this image of two ladies, in character. Olympus OMD EM1 Mk2, Lens - 12-40mm at 25mm (equivalent to 50mm). Processed in Topaz Impressions- Muddy River with opacity reduced to 35%.

Very well done. I really like the expressions on their faces, in character...only thing that bothers me a tad, is the grey triangle of wood at the upper right can easily be removed...   Posted: 05/03/2020 15:40:20

Yes, much better, don't you think? The other pieces in the background are OK, but the grey had to go...   Posted: 05/03/2020 16:12:00

I agree with Shirley on the piece of wood, but I had not noticed it, truth to be told.
Love the mood in the picture. Not sure the handbags reflect the time. Great Portrait.

You captured two separate lasses. The lady on the left is keeping as still as possible for the photographer will the lady on the right would rather be somewhere else. The browns, black, and touch of off-white/silver work nicely together.   Posted: 05/06/2020 14:38:45

Well seen. The expressions on the two women faces make the photo. I agree that the handbags are dated. The colors work out well as Dave mentioned.   Posted: 05/08/2020 19:59:08

The TV series "Peaky Blinders" is set just after the First World War. As a bloke, I have no knowledge of handbag styles in the early 20th century. If there are any handbag aficionados/historians out there, perhaps you can advise me!   Posted: 05/09/2020 13:06:08

very nice photo of women in character dress. their deadpan expressions help sent a mood. The shading in of the board at top works well. And I would not have noticed the purses very much and they do a good job of clutching them closely.
fun shot.   Posted: 05/18/2020 14:04:21
