I want to show to you few portraits on the NewYorkers.
Today it is a young black woman with blond hairs.
I took this photo on the 5th avenue. Usual daily life scene. And I also like a yellow-orange-red combination.

Nice shot! You picked an interesting subject, and captured her perfectly. I also like the blurred background, especially the man on his bicycle. The branches and leaves on the top part of the frame are also very nice. You have a good eye for choosing interesting scenes that others might miss. :-)

A nice snap-shot from a New York street. The colours are nice, as you point out, and the slightly blurred street creates a very good background to the woman talking on her phone.

Good portrait of people of NY, like also the inclusion of the bike, NY as Paris are becoming more ecologists
But what attract my attention is the very big Fendi Bag, obviously a fake one, as all women from NY wear

I can see why this would be difficult to pass by when reviewing your photos...it certainly does have an impact! I love the local appeal, a real New Yorker simply going about a routine phone call...but your execution has rendered a very strong visual.
The depth of field is key, keeping the focus on this individual with separation from the other elements, but still having enough detail and color in the background for effect. Another smart observation and quick reflexes and intuition to catch this daily life moment on the busy streets. Well done my friend. Keep 'em coming! Have a great day ahead.
My best wishes,

I was a bit silent during past days, yesterday I just came back from my Kerala trip, it was excellent. My silence is broken. I've already started post photos from this trip.
I like your photo. Perfect exposing; the lighting you have used is very kind to her natural skin tones and shallow DOF has further emphasized the vivid details. Although there's not direct eye connections, it is a happy shot after all !!. Very well done.

good idea with portraits from New York!
This one is great!Nice model and excellent combination of perfect timing and framing(by the way I enjoy these branches above her).Also the blurry background is superb(I have often problems with it while trying to take portraits).

Nice everyday portrait! Do you remember a singer called Yazz, sang "The only way is up" back in the 80's? This lady reminds me of her :)
All the best

Capturing fully the NY mood/style. I'd just cropped a bit of the tree on top. But great anyhow. I add my points to your already great score.

Definitely a girl in your gallery, Sergej. Like wise man you are concentrated on the hair. Me too. Kind regards, tovariš!
