Odd window.

I really like the bitter-sweet feel here, with the nearly horizantal sun light making abstract patterns and that hot paint. All seems odd including the window weather it's technical or just the atmosphere and the humor.

Ah, the contact lens lady?

Looks good to me, Andy. Lovely warm tones that set the mood. It is posted quite small and soft looking, perhaps your intent. I feel however that some sharpening of the woman while leaving the rest as is would be an improvement. Regards.

I like the lighting - both direction and colour. It really goves the mood as you have reflected in the title.

If there's one thing I would change it would be to straighten the window so that at least the horizontals are horizontal. But otherwise this is well done.

Great light, strong mood, good colours...not much to dislike about this at all. The non-vertical window doesn't bother me at all and its inclusion add to the sense of mystery...why is she outside? There is also a rather neat ovoid symmetry happening I think (usually Rob's id is more fertile than mine in this suprised he didn't mention it).

My only crit is that it lacks some though closer inspection will not be rewarded with the detail hinted at here. A shame, because otherwise I really like it. Very well seen and nice composition I think.

Best wishes- ANDY

I agree, wonderful light, colors and mood. She looks like she is ready to step out for an evening of fun.
