I'm trying to do street photography and I saw this lady coming my way. She looks tough so I decided to talk to her. She ask a lot of question which I'm not prepared. She allowed me after convincing her and she gloom and posed this way.

What ever I said to her is a secret...! She is my stranger number 4.

- shoot in ambient light.. sunlight in her left side which make it dramatic..

I like this, not exactly sure why I like it but it's an attractive picture, she's got a mysterious look to her and I like the pose with the cigarette. Looks like it could have been from decades past.

I absolutely love her pose and expression. I really hope she actually was a stranger because that would make the intimate, adoring glace even more strange and awesome. Nice choice of color. One of my top picks in the challenge.

Good for you, getting out and doing this. Not crazy about the processing (the vignette look blue), but a wonderful pose from your subject.

Beautiful and timeles portrait. I really love the way her hair shines in the light and I don't even mind the fact that her elbow is cropped off. Gorgeous!

Nice portrait, although the vignetting would have worked better in the same tones as the image

Nice work, looks like the image has been squashed horizontally or is that the lens giving the effect?
