LOL. Yea, that would have been nice! Next time I'll tell the people in the crowd where to go. ;) I took about 100 pics that evening and this is about the only where the person was looking into the camera.

i like the shot. i just think you coulda used a larger aperature to get more isolation of your subject. Give that 'alone' feel. Also maybe crop her a lil over. Nice over all pic tho 5

really good, too bad for the red tee shirt. It is somehow too visible

The eye contact with your subject really makes this shot.
