    I like the picture you posted here, great contrast and balance but maybe if you had moved closer you could have captured a more intimate picture.

    Excellent shot. I think I would have to disagree with Royster a bit. I think the very fact that you framed the photo looking through the doorway adds to the intimacy of the photo.

    thanks for taking the time to share your comments, gents.

    from a closer vantage point, the image indeed would have
    taken on a different flavor, Royster. unfortunately it wouldn't
    have been the image i was after. :)

    I disagree with you as well, Royster, although everyone's entitled to their own opinion. I like the fact that your vantage point is looking through a doorway, but I think it might be even more appealing if just the doorway was in focus, and the actual hair-citting scene was slightly blurred. That might really give the effect of how you're looking in on the scene.

    But anyways, it's a very nice photo as it is, and I like your black and white conversion work. I just think it's a little bit busy and focusing on the door might help that. :)

    had the focus been shifted away from
    the hairdresser/stylist her expression
    would not have been captured.
    (... which is what i was looking for.)

    an interesting point, nonetheless, on
    the point of focus, Emma.
