    Hi Lorey,

    I like the mood you have created with the this photo. The soft, de-saturated processing suits it. I normally like to see faces in portraits, but in this case having her head turned away adds the feel of quiet reflection.

    Nice one
    I welcome all critique and comments on any of my photos

    Although I do like the processing, Given that there's no important 'gesturing' of any kind, we need to see a face here....There's just not enough going on imo.

    Thank you RM,

    I remember taking this in 2014 and came across it the other day and decided to try processing it to show the mood I wanted to capture. I was pleased with the results. I couldn’t think of a good title that would go with the image, as you can see. But if I had thought of the perfect title it would be Quiet Reflection. You nailed it. I appreciate you taking the time to look and comment.

    Thank you Marko, for looking and commenting. IMO I think if a face was showing, that's where most of the attention would be drawn to. The way it is, one can focus on the mood and sense the feeling of a moment of quiet reflection. Always appreciate your comments.
