One moment in the queue for tickets!
The Jeita Grotto is a system of two separate, but interconnected, karstic limestone caves spanning an overall length of nearly 9 kilometres. The caves are situated in the Nahr al-Kalb valley within the locality of Jeita, 18 kilometres north of the Lebanese capital Beirut. Though inhabited in prehistoric times, the lower cave was not rediscovered until 1836 by Reverend William Thomson; it can only be visited by boat since it channels an underground river that provides fresh drinking water to more than a million Lebanese.

Thanks Leo. Backround should be overexposed (at least how I saw!) - to make as large as possible contrast to this wonderful eyes! Actually, the background is something that is to be removed from these pictures!

I love the eye contact with your camera here but the background is a bit overexposed and I`m missing some sharpness.
But, nice shot and an interestung note.

Interesting moment very well captured. I don't know how long that lady was looking at your lens but I assume she wasn't posing so well done on timing.
I don't agree with Leo - I think it was a good choice to overexpose the background and expose the main subject correctly.
Have a nice evening
