Hey Arvin, una ako dito...:> I like the composition and the colors and how the old woman somehow blending with your rough background of the monument. Somehow she's showing some kind of a very strong feeling as you took this...a very strong shot which evokes feeling to the viewer...TFS, ALex

This photo seems to have some statement to make and can create its own story to tell, very Impressive shot.

A nice candid shot of this lady with a fatigue expression!
Nice wall texture as a background adorned with subtle lighting!
Bautiful composition and presentation.

A wonderful idea to find this old lady standing by this old wall.
Ilike the symbolism of the shot, though, you may have had a totally different idea.:)

Rough background conveys the condition the woman might be going through. The texture of hairs and wrinkles on the face tells the same story. Great composition and well thought and well executed shot.

a timely capture. it shows the true facial expression (and emotion) of hardships that she endures. the compo is perfect as you have placed her to the far right of the frame.

I like her hair style and her clean blouse, nice portrait of old women in good color and lighting, clear to show her face, distinct photo, good shoot.

To me, this is by far the best photo in your posts. The character and strength of this woman is shown through the angle and lighting you have selected for this image. Your fishermen photos are excellent also, but I believe this "macro" of this old woman's life standing before us tells of her trials in life.
An exceptional image...

Hi Arvin! Ang ganda! There's something about the concrete behind her, the lines on her face and her salt and pepper hair that blends the whole scene together. Wonderful slice of real life. Mabuhay!
PS Thanks for your comment also.:)

A beautiful portrait! This old woman has a very 'speaking' face and you captured her in a very good way, semi-profile.
I wonder wether the focus is on her or on the wall, she is not perfectly sharp. Or perhaps it is due to the reduction of your photo?
Anyway, I like it a lot.
