"Her Eyes are with Her Thoughts, and They are Far Away" - this is the name of one of the paintings created by Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema, and this is the only title for this photo that immediately came to my mind.
Look at the painting and compare - and see if I was wrong or right to choose this title for this simple snapshot :)
... somewhere on the Seine..

Maybe you would call this a simple snapshot, but you certainly know how to compose a picture even when you have little time. There is good balance in every part of this photo, and the woman may very well be a distant relative to the one in the painting.

She is cool. While the painting has quite different setting, the title fits. I'm almost sure she is in her thoughts, rather than enjoying the view.
Lovely background with a walkbridge and old river boats.

i would like to say it is an excellent title for this
"snapshot"! Did you have the painting in mind when you saw this young woman in Paris? Good observation! The picture have an overall high quality, both technically and artistic, like many of your pictures. I hope you have more time to continue at TE in the future:)

Hello Elena - I'll echo the others: for a 'snapshot, this is thoughtful and wonderfully composed. A great thematic link with the painting, but a strong photo in its own right, showing a separation both physical and emotional between the woman in FG and the rest of society, crossing the bridge behind. An image with a lot behind it - thanks.

hello Elena, How amusing is the comparing of the two pictures. But the title fits very well indeed. I wonder what is she dreaming about in this city of love. Nice shot from Paris in contemplating mood.
have a nice day

Excellent photo superb high angle viewpoint. The lady is in superb light, and the excellent vertical asymmetrical arrangement creates a very good balance and harmony of this nice photo.
Very well done.
