I've worked a bit on this one as when it came out of the camera I could barely see the lady as she was so much in the shadow, so with a little help from Lightroom, I've got some detail - I hope! Cienfuegos, Cuba, again, and very much a grab shot.
Thank you all so much for your time, comments, suggestions and mods yesterday on Fishing with grandad! Your suggestions and mods were all very helpful and the comments provided me with lots of smiles!
Thanks for looking and for any comments today! I hope you all have a good week.
Ann

Like it... she has an almost resigned look on her face... almost as if they were prison bars... Nice work Ann.

No wonder she can smile, with a stout wooden door and an iron gate to protect her from marauding photographers!
Well worked and rather attractively composed.

I've looked at this a few times. There's a relationship between the lines and the smile, can't put it into words but it's beautiful.

She's smiling with delight at being in the cool of the house, while you are in the boiling heat of a Cuban street. You've managed yet another fine image from your island trip Ann, well done.

Very well shot to begin with, Ann, and you've brought out the light so well on the lady's face! I like how she doesn't look unhappy or suspicious about you taking her pic. Rather, she's calmly studying you as study her.

Brilliant candid portraiture Smile
