Manipulated image

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

Constantly Watching

Constantly Watching

Faraway look in her eyes

What has she seen

Love beautiful red hair and bright red uniform

Awe

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?

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.

Random International

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

Low light

In brick courtyard

Colours of coat and tones of hat and sweatshirt flow nicely with old brickwork

Portrait of concentration
