On the Mountain, originally uploaded by LeggNet.

It’s been nearly a month since I’ve posted a B&W capture of one of my daughters, so here’s a new one. I made this capture as we were climbing recently. She was patiently waiting for her turn on the rope and spontaneously looked up toward the camera as I shot this.

In addition to converting to black and white in post-processing, I added a small amount of lens blur everywhere but the face. I did this to further accentuate the sharpness and detail of the eyes. I also darkened the background area to minimize the distraction away from the subject.
