    I don't like sepia, but that is me.
    I also do not like the distractions from the reflections in the windows.

    I like this moment, I think you did a good job here, maybe just the bottom righthand corner... I do not mind the reflections in the window on this shot.

    Do you have a photo of him and the painting?

    I used to do the fiddling with the camera thing, but I gave up on it, cause it just makes you look creepy and suspicious.
    Check out the original thread I reference in the 1st post. Cloudwalker and Bigtwinky give some great advice on working to get over the comfort thing if that's your concern.

    Glad you like it.

    The face is great.

    Do you not like sepia in general, or just not on this image? I debated whether to convert or or not. The b&w just seemed to cold to me.

    About the reflections... I like the shot because of the reflections. They give some kind of context of the street she's looking out onto... and I really really wanted that woman's face reflecting in the glass panel. Then all I had to do was wait till the real woman looked out at me.

    About the painting... I tried to get something with the painting, but I couldn't compose anything I liked, so I let it go. It could have been interesting though.

    Thanks. Having a good subject with various textures helps... leathery pants, patterned shirt, brick wall, reflective glass, and of course skin.

    Thanks. I'm trying to make it a point to look out for naturally occurring frames.
