Awesome...love the colours and processing. Would perhaps have been even better without the blue basket, but that's not in your control. A charming moment..
Love it!

I'll get my niggles out of the way first .... looks like it could do with a touch of CCW rotation, and I'd maybe crop a tad off the left edge and increase the contrast with a subtle "S" curve set to "luminosity" blend mode to give a lift without further saturating the colours

Ah that's better Smile

Love this though ..... a beautiful shot.

I love the composition and the candid portrait. My niggle is that I find the background tones, particularly bottom right a bit overpowering and distracting - I'm not sure if this is a picture of the ladies or of the door and the two seem to compete rather than complement each other. But that's my eye, this is your picture.

Super picture, I think the unusual colour adds to the mystery of the place and people.

If I could click again for V2 then I would. That suggestion of Moira's about the door colour has certainly worked well too.

It's amazing how you can look at a photo and go wow I love that. Then you read the comments of others and go oh yes I hadn't noticed that! I still love it though. Nice work. Cheers, Raife

Magical image. You have treated this with great empathy for your subjects. Award winning image please submit it in competitions. If I had to choose, I like V1 with it being that step back, not so intrusive on them. Sylv.
