Lots of vibrant red tones
White bench good because it adds an accent and sense of place
Or would it have been better to take the bench out and just have total red tones

Faraway look in her eyes
What has she seen
Love beautiful red hair and bright red uniform

I kept the original lighting as it gave a sense that the composition was on the cusp of outdoor and indoor
I like the heavy shadow on the face and the low-key highlights on parts of the face
I also like the sense that somebody is standing next to her (you can see part of a coat) but her complete absorption in what she is viewing has made her totally oblivious of this person
I also like the large expanse of brick wall above her head as it gives a sense of scale and distance to the object/s she is looking at

Lady and Tree 2
So is this image better than a close up in B&W?
More of a story.
Is the image too flat and lacking interest?

Lady and Tree
I know what she was doing but can you tell?
The original image has great tonal quality because of the lady’s clothing and the grey tree trunks and weather.

The Rain Room -Barbican 2012
An oldie but goody
Obviously great woman has arms outstretched
Small flash of red in bottom rh corner
Couldn’t go wrong really with fabulous situation.
Still nice to see image after all this time.

Further studies of lady on bench
In brick courtyard
Colours of coat and tones of hat and sweatshirt flow nicely with old brickwork
Portrait of concentration
