On my last visit to Malaga, Spain, this woman captured my attention. Her posture and expression was one of someone who seemed to be desperate.

Agree entirely with all previous comments....A really good candid (( Although on a personal level I'm not sure about the intrusion into someone elses life at this level ))....Sad

I'm not knocking it.......Lets just say I have issues with the principal......Sad

However It's pretty powerfull stuff.....There is just one thing that seems to bother my eye though......The Orange peel under this womans leg.........Needs to be removed.....It's colour & presence are at odds with the image......Sad

Overall a click for composition & capture...Smile

great candid, of course- she could be doing anything here, maybe cat-napping after a hectic night before even.
she is very well coloured keyed too!
