i have already posted a photogrpah of this sweet old lady with her grandson.this is her shop where she sells these nice hats. it is also her bedroom, livingroom, dining room basically her entire home behind her. she shares this entire place with her family. i took quite a few shots of hers, there are a few that i prefer to this one, but in a hurry i got this scanned. i love the look on her face.this is her only expression and i love it. she seems really really sweet.

This is fantastic. I love the dark background and how the hats just "pop" out of the photo. It's eye-catching to me because of that, the diagonal line of hats leading to the lady, and the blue of her dress. Wonderful shot.

I especially like the way the light is reflected by the hats. Just a bit of a pity there was no more light on her face, her expression is priceless indeed...

Very good photograph! good POV. I like much the composition with the lines of the hats and behind the woman, the perspective continues.

Love the intensity of the expression, colours and shapes. The composition is interesting too. Thumbs up!

I like this one a lot, Sorhab, especially the colors. She's got a great look on her face and I like that we can just barely see her eyes under the hat. It makes me want to look at her even more closely. To be honest, I like this one better than some of the others that are even darker. Here, the darkness is there, but there's enough light to really be able to see what's going on.

This is an excellent shot! The thumnail didn't look to special, but wow I am happy I looked at the large version :)
Excellent composition, her placement in the picture is great and the angle aswell.
The face expression is priceless.
Great colours and light.

hi Sohrab..I hope all the exams are going good :)
she is great, her stubborn face is lovely :)..composition is beautiful..I admit I would feel more easy without the straws covering her apron/skirt..if this is a bad comment please tell me..(maybe it is important and I don't understand why)..

Quite nice picture. I like the mix of colors also and the cups on the table that fill the empty space. really very good.

hi Sohrab, I like this one , the expression of the woman, she seems like she does not know why she is here in front of your camera, she is very straight, very serious, no smile, just a question: what am I doing here ? or what do you want? however she is probably like you write a really sweet woman!

I recognize an expert in B&W photography here, Sohrab, with the hard contrasts in light you chose to hihglight in your shot.
A simple hat shop with its seller, but you made it very powerful thru light and composition plans.
