While listening to a concert at La Posada Hotel in Winslow, Arizona (along Route 66) I saw her sitting to the far right end of the room, with this huge painting of people behind her. I thought I saw a picture worth taking.
Her name is Sarah, and was the tour leader of a trip I had joined.
Found it today while looking for another one.
La Posada, by the way, is a hotel worth a journey in itself!

Great contrast between the woman and the artwork, yet in a strange way, they go together well. The light on the woman's dress is a bit off, maybe you can try to improve on it, e.g. by burning the black to make the dress darker.

Great shot Goran, i love your mixture between "big" reality and "fiction", the scene is really good, my compliments!

Stayed orphan for almost one day, then one of a sudden, a rush of critiques to this one :) What happened? Was this photo invisible and became visible? I will never be able to solve the TE dynamics...
And i think this one deserves even more, as it has the "creative idea" in it. The artwork itself is already nice, but your idea, the tour leader, being photographed as a 3D member popping out of the painting... This is it, what makes this photo original.

Hello Goran - The minute I saw this it reminded me of Edouard Manet's, 'A Bar at the Folies-Bergère' The layered composition combines both 'reality' and 'fantasy' into a smooth whole. Cleverly composed, I like this a lot. Warm regards rosemary

una foto eccellente per la quale non bastano 2 punti.
Una foto da grande artista sfruttando al meglio una situazione particolare.
La posa della signora, già molto particolare nella sua mole, si integra perfettamente in uno sfondo già bello di suo.
L'incontro tra tra questi due soggetti però riesce a creare una composizione di grande effetto e notevole suggestione.
Devo anche complimentarmi per l'ottima ripresa che è ricca di dettagli a seguito di una ripresa molto ben definità, nitida e luminosa.
Perfetta la gestione della luce.
Uno scatto da artista che aggiungerò alla mia serie di preferite.
Ciao e buona giornata
