I went out and looked for a stranger's portraiture. I saw this lady in the crowd then I took a snap and she looked at me... very interesting! I'm less than 2 meters in front of her.

Critique Club Review:

Color Saturation and Hue: N/A image is monochrome. However, the choice here made a stronger image. As others have noted, there does seem to be a pink cast to the whites of her eyes on my monitor as well. If I separate the image from the rest of the page, and make it larger, there seems to be a slight pink cast to the image overall.

Brightness and contrast: Brightness is well done, as is contrast. I would not have wanted the image any brighter, or with any more contrast.

Focus and depth of field: Focus is very nicely done. Depth of field is nice and shallow, separating her from the rest of the crowd. The right shoulder tends to blend into the background a little bit too much for me.

Subjective: I like this image. The wary look on her face, as she notices the photographer, really makes the image. I might have cloned out the stray hair between her ear and mouth. I'd also recommend not cutting off the top of her head. But then again, in these street shots, it is not always possible to get a perfect composition.

Aside from the frown and evil eye :-), why are her eyes pinkish? It is very disturbing to me.

It is indeed a great stare. The grain really add to the pic here and draw to her eyes.
If she was facing the other way it would have been almost perfect.

Nice glare. Getting a strange pink hue in her eyes. Could be my monitor.
