In the Mod section I put up another - uncropped - version. Not sure which one works best. Let me know what you think and thank you for your views, comments, critique

I think the cropped version is the right one to have gone for. The column on the right in the full version is distracting.

Excellent tones and detail in the large version.

Blue train, blue uniform, blue bin, blue floor. Well spotted. She looks a bit wary of you!

Nice colourful shot, she does look wary of you!
The other crop is better in my OP it balances the shot.

What an eye you have - all that blue, with the vivid splash of yellow. And I just love that expression on her face! Smile I prefer your cropped version BTW.

I prefer cropped too as there are a few to many distractions from the two main attractions which I see as the very camera wary woman, and the fantastic shape of the bench she is sitting on, I have made mod to show how I would like it to look, but its only my opinion, and its a nice picture anyway which deserves a place in your portfolio, and it adds a nice splash of colour to your work.

I think that the crop you chose is just about right. Including the whole bin makes her smaller and less important. But here you still see the bin and the lady is bigger. The best of both worlds. I did see the other one by Pooch and that is another good idea, just to focus on her. But I like the context here.

Thanks for that mod Paul. I needed something to make me smile :o)

your crop is another good possibility. had tried more or less the same crop at home before, but wasn't convinced (it's more a portrait than an environmental portrait). Together with the blur it could do the trick though.

Thank you all

Lol Koen was not my crop. Just upload another, a little more sensible now. Would look great in B&W. In colour there`s an aweful lot of blue. Find the train windows do nothing for the picture in Colour.

Seems this is one of those photos where a lot of different crops are possible, all with good result.

thanks. I took this using the swivelscreen, and wasn't turned towards her, but she clearly was very wary of what was going on in front of her. Luckily for me that look turned out to be good for the photo.
