I really like this image. The composition in which the old doorway is framing the lady, and she is well placed off centre is well done. I like that you have included her completely in the frame instead of a close up portrait, so that we can see her entire dress and surroundings. Although she has a beautiful and interesting face, so a portrait in addition to this one could also have been nice. I also like that she is not looking directly at the camera, and your toned down colours add a nice feel to the shot. Great!

Nice natural portrait in situation, well enhanced by the perfect framing and the soft light.

A superbly taken picture with a highly interesting motive. This is a very valuable TE contribution!

Lovely shot of this old dear, in all her finery set against the neutral tones of the wall. It looks like she's had a hard life since that marriage. I wonderful what she's thinking...
