    Really quite like this shot, the layering works so well as while the image is quite striking and visually strong it also makes it quite subtle.

    I really like the mood in this shot, but the upper row of windows keeps drawing my eye away from the lovely lady. Since the top of her head is missing already I'd crop the top of the pic off so you can't see the windows. Leaving the ledge is ok, don't want to crowd here eyes too much.

    I know you weren't asking for a critique, but sometimes I just can't help myself. Sorry. :eek:

    well, I really like this shot, has a story to tell, looking at the window as she takes a wine, a cold afternoon, well captured.
    This lens gives a good sharpness.

    I actually like the blurred windows in the background... I think it adds to the mystique as it defines that she's looking afar, as opposed to somewhere closer. Makes me wonder what is she looking at, or is she reminiscing the past or family perhaps. Windows... portals of time and of far away worlds.

    Ahh, I'm such a romantic... :eek:

    Great shot! To me it is such a soothing picture, I like it. Her beauty doesn't hurt the shot :) Reminds me of one of those rainy days that you get the fire going and the temperature just reaches that perfect zone and you can't help but get comfy.

    Great shot. Love the black and whites and even though we can't see her face we can tell she's got that far away look:)

    Raindrops on the window was the first thing I thought of.
