Post Challenge: Wow! I had no idea this image would do this well. I didn't go out to take a specific photo. I was just visiting the lighthouse with my boyfriend and saw the composition and the lighting with the window. I asked his mom to sit down and pose while I waited for countless stair climbers to get out of my shot. She was already wearing the red hat, and I think it turned out well.

Thank you everyone! This is my third entry since I rejoined the site and it feels really great :)

Good one!. I would have liked the model looking out the window, placing a hand in one of the bars, or otherwise a different action like reading a book.

Changing my comment, at the last dying minutes, pretty sure this is the blue, great comp, love the spiral staircase and the red hat and striped shirt compliment her outfit perfectly, this is the one to beat, well done!

That red hat is perfect amongst the winding geometry. Wonderful light and processing.

Back to comment - Nice scene and colors. IMO, having the person taking a step would give this a more candid look rather than staged.

Great space will composed and captured.

This is a super image! The leg is perhaps overexposed but it doesn't change the wonderful mood of this photo. I predict a ribbon.

Lovely composition, spiral does a great job leading the eye to the subject with the red hat! Top 5 for me!

In terms of interest I find this by far the best of the bunch. As is often the case, a splash of red does the trick.
