I love the depth and the light on her hands. I had been wanting to use this big, brown leather chair as a prop for the last year, at least. It really presented the perfect space for this scene.

4x5 B&W negative film, dr5-processed as a transparency to achieve increased contrast range, as well as sepia toning.

In the Féinmharú photo essay.

    good tone overall.
    If I could critique one thing that would make this a very powerful image.. crop the bottom away, right at the top of the base of the pill bottle (so get rid of it all together). That will balance the image, and draw the focus to her hands.. that are the telling beat of the image. The second pill bottle at the bottom is too forced. The mystery of the one in her hand makes you wonder how far she 'did' go.
    great image overall.
