Very cute, and love the capture in B&W makes it seem it was taken a long time ago when one could go out and see the globe and hopefully we able to do quite soon.

Keep up the photo journalism styles of captures.   Posted: 06/11/2020 19:34:09

Interesting and introspective image. The black and white is very effective here, and puts the interest on the face behind the window.   Posted: 06/12/2020 15:49:39

A great spot Paul. I love the partial face and the one eye in almost obscured by the opaque glass. As Barbara says, the B&W treatment works very well here.   Posted: 06/18/2020 05:52:51

Wonderful capture Paul, the image portrays a sense of mystery, what can she see, she looks afraid, B&W works very well and been able to just see the eye behind the glass makes it the focus of the image, great framing with the face in the centre between the bars.   Posted: 06/20/2020 06:21:23

hi paul,

really like this capture. there is not only the success of fulfilling the months topic but also presenting something leaning toward the fine art photo. There is a mystery of what this person is seeing, feeling. What are those bars in front of them you wonder. Love the rendering in black and white.

Great shot.   Posted: 06/22/2020 20:32:02

Thank you. This photo scored very low in my local club competition earlier this year. This comment makes me feel better about it. It was a photo I shot last time I was in India. I was in a bus across from another bus and I liked the bars and the glass separation of the face.   Posted: 06/22/2020 22:26:56
