    Thank you.
    If I am lucky I can include all the elements and emotional content that a viewer would need to construct a story but not be so prescriptive that I am telling the story.

    I really like this one though I'm ambivalent about the arm/shoulder on the right. There's a part of me that sees it as a distraction. I think I'd be tempted to remove it entirely.

    It would be a bit of a chore to create the window, ledge and all but, more important to me, I like the additional options for the 'story' that the man's arm brings to it.
    Without the arm, for me it is just a woman in the window.

    That's why I'm undecided. I also like the added element just wish there was a tad more of the person. Removing it really wouldn't be that difficult.

    The amount of the person is, I think, a personal taste assuming that no more is shown beyond the collar of his shirt.
    He does have a regulation neck and head in place and there is no hint of anything constructive beyond the blue of the shirt.
    I actually really like that a viewer sees only enough to know that he is there.
    Is he less or more important by being hinted at, marginalized as it were?
    A little ambiguity is a tease.
