I was walking with my boyfriend towards the Notting Hill market in London when we both noticed this woman posing for her friend next to a car at the traffic light.
We both had our cameras ready so we took similar shots of the scene.

Thank you all for your comments, they really help a lot!

@choltmeiher and Melethia: I only had time for this shot because the traffic started moving the second I shot this. My boyfriend was a couple of meters behind me and he had a different angle but I like his better :)

@crabappl3: yes, you are right. it looked a lot lighter on my notebook when I was working on it. Now at my office it does look much darker :(

Interesting shot. I wish her eyes were open. I think you could also have cropped out the shooter on the left (although that may be part of what you wanted to capture).

I think I like both perspectives (this one and the other similar shot) - gives two views of the same thing. Can't tell for sure but it looks as if they young lady posing has her eyes closed? Nice car, by the way!

Hmmm, I feel I've seen this before. Unlike the other angle of this shot, I like that you've included more of the shooter in the image. I also like that it's in landscape mode. The b/w treatment is just a bit on the dark side, but overall a good image.
