Hi all, It's been awhile since visiting.

I've chatted with Tina several times and the other day I asked if I could take a few portraits. She's a street person here in my town, not homeless though and she always tires to dress well. She's seen a hard life and yet she's a survivor.

Best to ya'all, Ernst

To me, a interesting and nicely presentated subject. Congratulations

Really, really like the pose and comp here Ernst - well made.
If I may, and since you are okay w/critique, I know you like your portraits a bit on the darker toned side. But this one in particular feels a wee bit too dark to my eye given the lighter coloured dress in the foreground where my eye keeps going. For me, the woman is a far more interesting than the dress so I might burn in that dress to take attention away from it, or dodge the woman a bit more which is probably more my style...but might well not be yours. Hope that may help

Thanks for the reply Marko. I do have to agree with you. Putting this one into my competition folder after I rework it some.
