''Lady in Red''

By Edcat55
TAKEN WHILST ON A NIGHT PHOTOGRAPHY-TRIP WITH TRIPODS TO VALLETTA WITH MY PHOTO-BUDDIES ALEX, ANDRE, MY BROTHER JOSEPH, MARK AND RAY.
----- THIS IS A CANDID SHOT (WHILST SHOOTING LANDSCAPE SCENERY FROM THE UPPER BARRAKKA) ----THIS LADY CAUGHT MY EYE; I FLIPPED THE CAMERA ON THE TRIPOD TO A 90 DEGREE AND LET THE SHUTTER GO FOR CIRCA ONE SECOND----THE APERTURE OF F7.1 WAS JUST ENOUGH TO LET ME ADEQUATELY EXPOSE FOREGROUND AND BACKGROUND DETAIL CORRECTLY AT THE SAME TIME LET ENOUGH LIGHT IN.

THE UPPER POSITIONED RAYS OF LIGHT FROM THE STREET BULBS ON THE PREVAILING ARCHWAYS ADDED TO THE DRAMA OF THE NIGHT!

I like this a lot. So much to see, from the lady in the red dress, her expression. The shadow of the statue. What a great image with a story to think on.

I really like this Edwin.
Great light/shade with well controlled colours.
The statue to the right gives a POI to the right while she is perhaps looking for someone approaching.
The only this I might have done is a little leveling, it's a little right wing down but the verticals do exaggerate this.

1st UA of the day without a doubt.

This is just perfection, everything about it is perfectly balanced. Wonderful

Great capture love the fact that the lady sat still long enough to avoid blurring.
Well exposed and lot's of detail in the high and low lights

Oh wow ..... this is a real winner Ed!

All the ingredients of this capture fall into place superbly - the framing, the pose, the lighting, the timing and the mood you created. More so being a long exposure shot, not easy at all to come up with this cracker. Definitely one of your very best Ed, prosit 👌

Excellent photography ..... award winning hands down

Super shot Edwin, great lighting and composition with a story for us to think about. However I do find the bright window on the right a little distracting perhaps it could be darkened a little? Nevertheless an excellent photo taken under difficult conditions.

For me it is all about the lady in red and then the light from window captures the attention and leads you into the background. The architecture and fence are so well caught.

Superb work Edwin!

Superb composition and great light, beautiful feel to this photograph
It makes me think of a theater scene with the spotlight highlighting the main character. You really were lucky she didn't move.. The result is absolutely lovely and full of atmosphere..
