I get the impression the woman is making a quick exit before he spots her, I like the inclusion of the chap in the mirror. - gary

So well balanced placement of all 3 figures and rather nice, almost sepia tones too. Looks like a story in the making!

An excellent composition, Sandy, the inclusion of the figure in the mirror is an added bonus. Carol

Two excellent photographic images rendered in color & monochrome. I slightly favor the color, v1, today. Nice work.

I like the tones in V1 but its a pity its slightly out of focus, probably because the shutter speed was so slow. I'm guessing it was quite gloomy in there with you having the iso at 2500 and still only getting 1/4 of a sec shutter speed @f4.

Vote for content,framing and tones though
