    Voted for KellysCayman: Beautiful Bride.

    I really like the contrast between the black and white of her dress.
    To top it off, it's her "little hold back smile" that does the trick for me here.

    Not only a "Beautiful Bride" but also a Beautiful Shot.
    My veil ..... errrr .... vote goes to Kelly this month.

    VERY difficult choice. Keeping the dramatic lighting theme in mind, four entries really struck me. I narrowed it down to three and was stuck. In the end I chose what seemed like the MOST dramatically lit portrait, the one that could give me nightmares... Idlebull's Dramatically Lit Self Portrait.

    Are you really that scary, Idlebull?

    I won't say yet how I placed my vote, but I will say that this month's contest is the toughest yet.

    Considering the title was DRAMATIC Portrait Lighting, I was struck by how many WELL lit portraits are in here? Great images, all, some are beautiful examples of a classic portrait, but the guy in the cap for me is the ONLY one with ANY drama in it...

    YMMV, of course.
    My ears are grey, my knees are knackered, my eyes are old and bent...

    Oly E1 x2 now, both with SHLD-2, 11-22, 14-54, 50-200, EC-14, FL-50, FP-1, various cables, cards etc in a Billingham 335 or Lowe Mini Trekker.

    Oly OM-1 x2, OM fit 24/28/35/50/85/135 plus others.

    Ann,

    My submission, "Shadowplay, Man with Cap" is okay by me.

    All,

    Good luck and I'm as undecided as many of you.

    Hey Sharkey,

    Thanks for your vote and kind words about my shot. This was one of my all time best candid wedding shots.

    I really like the Girls in Scarves and Ian's shot of his daughter. I have a shot of my 3.5 year old daughter that is similar.

    IT was nice to read all the positive response to peoples work.

    Kelly
