It is not difficult to see that this Marilyn Monroe, and she even looks great with red hair. LOL In fact this mural would not have been the same with blond hair. It is obvious that this artist goes for simplicity, but it is still very expressive.

You have done a great job picturing this mural, and the photo is pin sharp with clear details. The exposure is perfect.

The square format looks great and Marilyn is well placed within the frame. A great looking and well taken photo Sunshine.

Beautifully presented and composed photography of the famous Marilyn Monroe.
You have achieved a wonderful perspective and brought this mural to life with your night photography. Very well photographed in good lighting, sharp focus, and outstanding details and clarity in your image. The hair seems to be aglow. Beautiful work and thanks for sharing.

Comment from Kevin Williams

This is an excellent portrait painting of Marilyn Monroe. I like this style of art painting outside. I never was good at using airbrushes or spray paint. These artists make it look so easy. There were a couple of artists here in my city that just finished up completing this type of work a couple of years ago They painted at least 10-12 prominent local and national African American leaders on the outside wall of this building in the inner city. It still looks good to this day. Thanks for sharing Sange

This looks so well like an original painting due to your excellent camera settings - you found the perfect angle and distance - excellent portrait shot from this poster - perfect and very striking at first look, well done, Sange

I suspect this is a pretty big piece of art, and I know how difficult those are to paint. I love the story and you captured it beautifully. For graffiti, it's excellent! The juxtaposition of collies are interesting too!

    It's a movement they started yrs ago to give run down buildings a makeover while boosting careers of new Up and coming artists that don't have work in galleries be able to show their talents outside.
    Plus they wanted to boost tourism in the parts if town no one goes to by making a map of Wall art.
    Since we live in a Selfie photo society. It worked! The business owners get a free makeover plus customers.
    It's a win win for everyone.
    Marilyn was on the side of the wall with the joker next to her and JFK next to the joker.
    So this is the size, I only cropped at the building corner edge.

    Thanks Doreen ;)

Comment from Lorafina

Interesting take on Marilyn Monroe. She's known for her platinum blonde hair but the artist here decided to make it red and thanks for multi match! Masculine features make it look like it maybe someone in drag imitating Marilyn! did a fabulous job of photographing it. I know it is not easy and you make it look like it is!

You have captured street art/graffiti of a fine quality. Your photograph actually is so good it looks like the real thing. Would frame and be a portrait of great impact and be a wall art feature in a home or office etc. The light you used has added a sheen and brilliance to the whole and it's a real pleasure to view.
