I was sifting through my files yesterday for something suitable for the days photo month comp and I came up with this one.

The mono version did very well in the gallery and this was uploaded as a version in the past so here it is on its own.

I like the photo month competitions as you get a challenge everyday.

I think I might prefer the mono slightly, but this works well - mainly because she's not wearing distracting colours and her bag matches the bench. And colour does look sunnier...

Very nice indeed. She's perfectly placed in the frame and is linked to the other components in the picture by the colour of her bag and the bench. Excellent.

A great candid Ken, the totally oblivious model making for a well balanced composition.

Linked by the hand/eye concentration. The earthy colours are not distracting at all.

Agree that colour is not a distraction here.
The composition is made even more satisfying in that the ratio of the spaces between the three heads is almost exactly 2:1, effectively speeding up our scanning of the image as we move from left to right.

A first-rate candid.

Bill

Hadn't seen the mono version, but am absolutely enchanted by the colour version. The green background is stunning as is your subject placed as it is. So deserving of all the compliments, Bravo. Smile
