1. You aren't taking advantage of them, but of the situation. If you were making money from the sale of the image, there may be slight qualms, but your first instinct was correct, as far as I'm concerned. Get the shot first, worry about the niceties afterwards.
Not a great deal wrong with it. It doesn't hold my interest for more than a few seconds though.
I'd like to see a version without the two birds on the rail.
As a pose, it would have been better to lift her nearer leg and cross them, keeping her within the frame. You could also have shot looser to include her leg: you have a little space to play with above her head. As it is, it's a pleasant environmental portrait, and even with a crop you could keep some of the background as a neutral, natural setting.
Once again, a manipulated abstract that is entirely unconnected with the words.
It reminds me of a Rorschach ink blot card.
For me, the following stand out:
That depends on the effect you were looking for.
If you see it, great. I'm afraid I'm not a big fan of this kind of image/text combo, nor those "inspirational messages" so often seen on social networks.
Good timing, well composed and well captured. Then over processed.
I would suspect that if it was really taken on an Olympus OM 2, there won't be any exif data (it's a film camera)!!
I find a similar thing with many of these kind of shots....the depth of field. Separating your subject from the background is the difficult thing, whilst it gives context, it also adds clutter to what is effectively a candid portrait.
One thing I think needs to be emphasised, is that there is not necessarily a "correct" exposure, only an exposure you want, that contains enough information for you to do what you want with the image.
