the way we choose to be..
'oo,your way is in that part..drive it carefully!
if you want could come with you'
(even the storm is close,hm..)
what can kindness do?
can stop the tears
or could brings that light
and change all day..
just me,always talking about these people from the villages,their kindness..
nice Sunday for all!

Beautiful one !!!
I don't know wich I prefer : the previous one or this one...
Finally...I think is this one.
Beautiful lady, beautiful composition, not very usual...
I like it a lot...
Best regards. Grazyna.

A beautiful, a wonderful and very inventive portrait of this lady - obviously on the way to work. I like the light here and silhouetting her in front of the dark sky works very well too.
A not everyday's photo!
Greetings from Germany - and have a nice Sunday too!
bantonbuju (51815) 2007-09-09 1:03
this is a great one...
normally i dislike photos taken from the car, either through a car window or through the opened door...but this one is just great, it perfectly portrays that scene of asking for a way...and the local woman is simply amazing with that long pole and umbrella and all those things on her head...
best wishes, j.

Such a sharpness in tones and lights !!!
A LOVELY LADY AND A LIVELY IMAGE :)
Paolo (41222) 2007-09-09 2:14
Hi Florentina, wonderful portrait, with high quality, amazing colours and light and a fantastic close up on the woman.
gary91 (15348) 2007-09-09 2:54
I am just discovering your gallery and I like the way you present daily life and ordinary people. This image is very well composed and the usage of the tilt-up is very well seen.
This woman has a very soft face and seems to be very kind with her head in the clouds...
Have a nice day.
Best regards, Christian
riclopes (35577) 2007-09-09 3:56
Olá Flory, and it's a pleasure to see 'your' people from the village. I see this woman was an inspiration for you. So far, you show us two great portraits of her...I wonder if there's more :) Wonderful colors and very good framing elements with the door, the umbrella and the axe - they all have their place here. Splendid shot.
Have a good sunday,
p.s.- today is a bit greyish with threatening sky but not cold.
Floydian (30970) 2007-09-09 4:05
It seems she is shwoing the way with her right arm pointing to the road. Seems to be warm weather with the hat she weares but also prepared for a drop of rain with the umbrella, very funny.
The photo itself is very bright with excellent colours and detail. Her face is very sharp and we can see almost every wrinkle.
Like this one a lot, really good photo work.
Have a nice sunday, Henk
daddo (27030) 2007-09-09 4:42
Hi Florentina. Refreshing photo. No affectation, just sincerity and human warmth. she is as uncontaminated as those fields and flowers behind her. Lovely. Regards. Klaudio.
PixelTerror (0) 2007-09-09 4:44
Ciao Bella :-)
You made nice series with this woman, here the car door adds a touch of (relative) modernism, the focused expression looking forward under this always as good light is very good.
Have a nice sunday JY
bostankorkulugu (42452) 2007-09-09 4:51
amazing portrait flory... and a lovely colour combination, lucky you... pink on the dress, the yellow hat, soft blue sky and the pastel green are just soooo good... oh, i m so jelaous of this one, congratulations...

zig (2456) 2007-09-09 6:05
Hi Florentina, This is a beautiful photo. Lovely angle and the soft colours makes good mood. This is soo nice that I have got to shut up and stare at it for a while.
mirarer (4751) 2007-09-09 6:36
Simpática foto. Me gusta por su sencillez y por lo bien que expresa el tema.
axiotea (21651) 2007-09-09 8:40
I like the posture and relax expression of the lady who seems to enjoy being photographed. A good quality image with fine sharpness, nice contrast, colors and framing.
leo61 (0) 2007-09-09 9:44
A great shot of this lady and her umbrella.Colors and sharpness are great overall and I like that she is not looking to your camera.Great POV and a nice perspective.
mpdre (1611) 2007-09-09 10:01
I really like the colors you have obtained in your last pictures. They are very natural and amazingly bright, in the sense of clear, images with very good definition. This shot is excellent, the woman with colorful dress against that green and beautiful landscape. The image is very cinematographic, like if you were shutting from a trailer for a film sequenc... Bravo!!!!!
faubry (35447) 2007-09-09 10:19
buna Flory, o frumoasa imaj, frumos model, euperba compozitie, pe curand
siolaw (38292) 2007-09-09 21:31
That is a fine portrait with excellent use of the available light and soft colors... Sharp details and good BG too.
Emile (20352) 2007-09-09 23:23
Just from your car seat you were able to get this superb portrait, all our components for a good shot are around us, we just have to know that there are right there, we have to see them, you don't have to go to China or Cambodia to get good shots, they exist around you in any place you are. This is one of your best portraits, very well captured.
Well done. TFS.
Cheers and have a nice week.
isabela_sor (47748) 2007-09-10 0:29
Asta e facuta inainte de portret sau dupa?eu cred ca inainte :)Oricum e plin de naturalete
danos (99890) 2007-09-10 3:51
what a nice shot of this old woman that signify the direction to the passengers of the car! I like so much the clear vivid colours and the light of the shot as her peaceful face.Really the people of the village are more kindness and gentle from the others in the cities.Well done florentina.
batalay (39289) 2007-09-10 8:06
I like this portrait of very much. The composition, colors, perspective and resolution are all very good. The human interest aspect and the informative note are complementary.

It isn't photo about way. It is photo about life. Smart and symbolic.
Really impressive scenery.

Beautiful picture taken with such a great timing. I love her expression, I love the sky providing such a great background with very soft colors. An excellent picture.

Mistral (15402) 2007-09-22 7:20
this is a beautiful portrait for the framing and the dark sky on her background who make her silhouette of deep impact.
Then your note reflect the right attitude towards the people you meet along your vacations...
A smile for your weekend!
archimatica (20638) 2007-09-24 2:54
This is (only) a masterpiece!
gramma (3519) 2007-09-27 11:58
Impressive view. The contrast between the door's car, the umbrella and this woman is very amazing. That gives an atmosphere where times are mixxing. Cordially,
veve (4189) 2007-10-01 7:24
Chiar imi place portretul acestei femei din profil.Portiera si umbrela dau un plus de interes imaginii.
abulafia (4900) 2007-10-07 1:41

Good to see that you don't waste an opportunity for a good picture:)

Beautiful capture of this lady.
Good moment captured here.
Village people seem to have more time to be friendly and helpfull - must be international then.
AndreiSter (0) 2007-11-03 13:16
Ciao Flory.Ce calitate super!.I kind of like it.
Un moment super captat,colorat,viu.
wmickl (536) 2007-11-12 1:38
Hi Florentina !
A nice study of the person blend into her natural surroundings.
I'm looking forward to see you in Romania.
sadeik (3282) 2007-11-19 11:06
Maybe a smidge more contrast but then you would lose the lovely pastel colour effect.
One I missed and such a lovely portrait
MayaG (2413) 2007-12-03 6:18
You were so right not to 'heavily frame' this one as it would definitely lessen the amazing impact this portrait has.
Its the colours that create magic to me - especially this gentle, yet somehow dominant blue of the sky against which the cheerful dress fabrics and springly greenery stand out.
At last, this contrast between her age and 'forever young' feeling inside...
truly a great work, Florentina!
noborders (1010) 2007-12-18 8:52
Of course, I had to open this featured photo, it is really lovely, the clothes of the old woman, also her expression and the whole composition : excellent !
I'll add this to my theme,
sowhat (1004) 2008-01-03 4:47
Beautiful portrait, a touching contrast between the old lady and the flowery landscape, so young and green.
I also like the feeling of movement, it's like a sceene of a movie.
Happy New year,
asival (5307) 2008-01-06 4:53
Perfect angle (much more then the other one)...
I just love those colors and the magnificent light

designsoul (21492) 2008-01-31 18:29
Hello Florentina... what a beauty... what a goodness emanating from her... the simple ways, the honest look, the fantastic framing... an exquisite offering, dear Flory. Very nice colours and a mood that pulls me closer and closer to my homesick soul... very beautiful.
veronika (6058) 2008-05-06 8:05
this is so nice picture, i saw it now on te first TE page and it caught my eyes, what a lovely scene with this old lady, she seems to be attracted by the view in the front. Great one indeed:)
