I took this photo whilst lurking on the streets of halifax a couple of weeks ago. This young woman was huddled in the door way of a large shop selling beauty products. Her concentration on her customer whilst chewing her fingers was something to behold!

Thanks for looking.

Why do so many young women and girls relentlessly chew their fingernails, even when they're just walking around?????
It's weird, you must've noticed.

I suspect they're nervous about being found wanting!

Maybe a self confidence thing?

It is a wonderfully candid image, and very well spotted and timed. There's just two things that (for me anyway) could make it even better - the fluff of hair on the left hand edge of the image is distracting, it's neither one thing (a definite person attached to the fluff) or the other (no one there at all). And the right hand side of the image has a band of light running down it, which I think is the edge of a corner building behind her? Other than those two very minor points, I thinks it's a cracking image. At first, I thought she was an artist with a paintbrush in her hand, it was only once I'd read your description that realised she was a make-up artist! So again, the hair on the left is put into context by that knowledge, although a whole face could tell more of the story. Superb expression on the girl's face, and the handling of extreme highlights on her face and the darkness of both her hair and coat are well balanced.

Thank you Tanya for that feedback. I thought i had cropped that tuft of hair on the left out of the image because i too saw it as a distraction. I'm pleased you like the balance of light and dark, I wasn't sure if the highlight on her cheek was a bit too much.

Tanya has mentioned the one fault here - that tuft of hair has to go. But I'm glad you left so much space for her to gaze into, we imagine the customer. It's a strange expression with those wide-open eyes. I wonder how much she is actually concentrating, how much she is trying to look as though she is while the customer drones on and she's way past clocking-off time...
