A very nice image in all respects except he name on the front - why put that there. Even in grey it pulls my eyes from the main image.

A beautiful shot Patrick, lovely monotone with a wide range of tones.

I would only suggest [perhaps a less central composition for the lady, and have loaded a mod with this change using cropping and a quick canvas extension and clone. I have lifted the shadows just slightly, especially on her face and dress, with a final sharpening. Remember to sharpen after you re size for the web, - as you will lose sharpness due to compression.


Hope this is helpful


Regards


Willie

nicely composed but feels a little dark to me.

Love the tones and innocense here. The one part that draws my eye is the half chair bottom right. Would have removed it it just throws the balance out and clutters
Congrats on the EC

A really nice image and moment captured - Personally I would have at least cropped off the top small windows as the verandah roof outside tends to close down the space she is in - take that a way and she seems to be looking in to a lot more endless space and for me this would add to the tention of the moment. I would play quite a bit with the crop to reduce clutter - the sharpen on resize mentioned is a good tip as it certainly has got a little soft. - Cheers Andy

Personally I wouldn't change a thing. I think from crop to tonal range its a beauty. Paul

Great catch. The image has a very peaceful atmosphere and I'm actually wondering what she's waiting for Wink

I took the liberty to upload a - not at all perfect - modification, with a slightly different crop and tone as I think her half-visible reflection in the ground is worth emphasizing. Also I think she looks more waiting and in more solitude when I take off a bit of room at the top and the bit of the chair bottom right. I think this way she's 'free to go' and gets a bit of lightness and a stronger contemplation.

I think the lady, seeing this image, will remember this moment for ever...
