    I was taking some people shots on my way home from work and shot the two Arabian girls outside Starbucks because the one on the left had a really bright blue coat. Its only when I got home I spotted the girl on the phone and used selective colouring to highlight her. Notice anything?

    Most Muslim women in Ireland are either students nurses or doctors, and they always dress well, so it was strange to see one wearing combats and with her veil up covering her face as nearly all of the woman I saw dont wear their veil.....

    There seem to be a contrast in mood between the girls talking and the one on her cell phone. However, looking more closely, I think, what strike me as weird the girl wearing the veil is also wearing camourflage pant, that just does match with the veil, I think that what make the picture look weird more than anything else.

    I also notice that alot of people are staring at the two Arabian girls talking, that's weird right? And i did not notice girl on the phone at first either until you mentioned it, maybe a bit more space for her would be helpful.

    Well spotted Schumionbike, thats what I thought, the combats just dont fit in with the whole image of the girl! Also I wish I spotted her when taking the shot as she would have been my main target!

    Hey Stefano, yeah www.themidwesternphotographer.com is my old site. I have room for 400 images and only have 68 on it so I let people who dont have their own site display up to 20 images on the website also. Mmmmm... Guinness!

    The camo pants and veil is the juxtaposition that grabbed me most.

    It's a nice photo, but it's bothering me that the top 1/4 of the veiled girl's head is not in color like the rest of her body.
