Comment from Pamela Ruggiero

Hi, GaliaG. Now is a good time to ask why you always say nice words and then deduct half a point. Would be nice to know why. On this, I read the other reviews since I am not a photography buff. I see what Life is but a Dream means in her comment. Somehow that light on the pole does draw my eyes away from the woman. You captured her stern look well. Thank you for sharing and best of luck with this image

Comment from nikman

Quite a stern looking portrait presented here. Was there a particular reason why she looks so serious? Exposure and sharpness are good. Nicely done!

Comment from Life is but a dream.

Galia, this woman has rather a wooden look to her and your bias is towards gray. Black and white photography needs to show black and white, here you do have a multitude of gray primarily.

See that harsh white pole digging into the frame at the right side? It draws out attention to it and away from this person.

Would you consider doing a closer crop and woking the gray scale more accurately?

Comment from Dick Lee Shia

Candid portrait.
Fine facial features & smooth textures.
Subtle illumination.
Ideal framing.
But quite obscure to illuminate details.

Nice perspective & narrow DOF.
Thanks for sharing...
