Nice detail shot

Good choice of shot, I think I'd prefer just a tiny more contrast though, there are a lot of mid tones in this shot.

@Curly: Thanks Curly, I'm inclined to agree it could do with a little more contrast, I spent a bit of time deliberating over the processing when I desaturated and now I look at it again that's what it needs
Excellent monochrome, Doug - I really like the way you composed this. Well done!

A beautiful detail of this old profession. The b & b clearly illustrate the work of hands. A very beautiful picture.

TRès beau ton monochrome!!!! et j'aime ce détail!!!!!

A very good close up view in mono. I have large respect for this kind of craftsmanship.
nicely captured & great in b&w.

A super craft that will never go out of style.... I use baskets for my yarns. A lovely composition focusing on her hands and the materials needed to weave. A good choice for mono Doug, I like!
2 Aug 2012 1:06pm
Such an effective image of isolation and detail and well suited to the mono.
2 Aug 2012 1:51pm
Beautiful capture. Love the positioning of her hands. Also good B and W choice.
2 Aug 2012 2:15pm
An interesting close up of this creative activity. It's good that a few craftsmen are still carrying on this specialty.
2 Aug 2012 2:43pm
Nice one. Well cropped back to focus attention to the basket.
2 Aug 2012 3:25pm
Interesting image Doug, and lovely mono.

so much work for so little reward. I appreciate talent like hers.

I like that you feature her working hands and craft in you image. Nice in monochrome.
2 Aug 2012 5:48pm
How interesting !
2 Aug 2012 5:57pm
I love how you have composed this shot Doug! Well done! ;-)
2 Aug 2012 5:59pm
Beautiful image and lovely in monochrome. I think basket weaving is so interesting and intricate but it looks like it would be hard on the hands.
2 Aug 2012 6:18pm
I respect people who have held the old working methods! A great picture.:-))Haleja

Lovely mono image that brings her work over well.
Lots of grays; it takes a bit to focus on the elements ... but I like the activity you captured!
