*Hello from Sid and the Critique Club*

A natural portrait, assumed to meet the challenge.

Your portrait has a lot of appeal, in particular for the natural moment you have captured of the girl looking longly at the tempting goods on display. It also conveys a desire to be out of the cold environment and in the warmth of the shop. Her clenched hands add to this feeling too.

Your exposure is on the plus side which also helps convey the whites and therefore the coldness of the scene and the falling snowflakes are the final essential ingredient that makes it all work well together. I like that we are able to see the girls reflection in the glass together with detail inside.

The top right feels as though you have added a white gradient to the upper part of the image, you may well not have done but it does feel a little unnatural in comparison with the rest of the image, perhaps it is just the snowfall.

Anyway, well done for such a high placing in this tough challenge a well deserved result, Sid

Wonderful moment in time. So hard to have falling snow add to a photo, but here it sets a great mood.
