    Hmmm. Weeeeeellll.
    If she were in focus ... and not the window and flowers behind her :scratch: ... and if there wasn't such a strongly competing bright part (larger than the "subject-part") in your photo ... :scratch:

    Actually, I see two pictures here, the woman (unfortunately not in focus, but in nice light) at the bottom, and the opposite window in th sunshine (second photo).

    I like the shutters and the reflections in the window and the blue and cream colours, but I am not sure the woman adds much to the picture.

    :scratch:I'm not quite sure what I'm supposed to be focusing on? the window or the woman? I don't really agree with having the top half of the photo so bright and bottom so dark... Not overly impressed

    I think you should get her to quit smoking........

    Then shoot it again with the shudders open, and her body not cut out, and she in focus....

    I quite like it. Although as some have said it's a bit confusing as to what the main focal point is, I like the shot. The woman seems lost in her own little world, smoking her cigarette and seemingly oblivious to the outside world, which is sitting there right outside the window. I see a nice contrast to the shady light inside and the obviously sunny day outside, the flowers and the bright colours of the building just emphasis that contrast.
    I don't have any issues with the so called "out of focus", she looks just right in the picture to me, I believe "soft focus" would be a better term and in some photos that adds a lot to the way I view an image.
