Hi
This was taken on our travels round Uganda, our truck had stopped for a break and to give us a chance to stretch our legs, I turned round to see this old lady walking down the hillside, as hard as I tried, I couldn't get her to look so didn't manage to capture her face.

I would really like your opinion of this image and to see any modifications you may suggest.

Thank you for taking the time to look.

Best Wishes

Tracey

The composition and tonal quality are superb. Not seeing the face is a mpity, but it has a charm of its own regardless of that. Where I do feel it could be improved is in its translation into a web image - I feel it's over-sharpened and the detail has suffered a little in the compression.

Not seeing the face doesn't detract to much from the image, the lady is more concerned with coming safely down the steps carrying a heavy load and that is what you have captured very well in this image, I like everything about the image and would not change anything,
Well done Tracey.
