I quite like the dramatic lookin such examples of available light photography, which often end up as pretty nice B&W conversions!

Below is mysketchy take out of my appreciation for the original. Hope you don't mind..

Thank you bahadir. I don't mind, - have the original in color . But seriously, I agree b&w adds a dramatic effect to the scene.

Hey there,
I like them, available light pictures are my favourites - I never had big success with a flash myself. Although this may sound strange, DSC_8365_m.jpg is my favourite (the laughing half-portrait). It looks very natural and is what I call "capture the moment" - that's the kind of photographs I am after when I want to tell/show a persons personality (strange wording, sorry - I hope you getthe idea).

Regards,
Th.

They are beatiful and you did a great job in catching the moment.

I can only nitpick one of the images (i.e.image 8363 in which you seem to have a bit of BF ). I know it is very tricky to AF particularly in such low light at F2.8. Likely it would have been better to MF to her eyes rather than the hair a couple of inches behind.

As you are using 50mm, it is really difficult to have tack sharp subject with nice bokeh and non-distracting background.

I have been toying with the idea of using long lens at F4 or F4.5 which render the subject sharper but still with blurry dreamy background

Lovely portraits, window light is one of the most beautiful lightsources.
I like the ones where you included the source.

However, take care of the straight line of the window, it's perfect in some and in some it's tilted, I would like to see it straight (but that's personal).

Well done.

Greetings,
Frank

All beautiful....wonderful job of catching the light. 8309 is, I think, my favorite. I like it both in the original color and in bahadir's B&W conversion.

Thank you thkn777, danielchtong, Frank, Trojansoc.
I think I should agree with Frank and include the window where it's possible.
