I love the strong contrast from dark to white. Well captured.

This image has caused me to stop and pay attention. That means it is in my 7-10 voting band. (Voted earlier)

Additionally, it is highly interesting/eclectic meaning it keeps me here long enough to offer a longer comment and a vote of 8 or more.

This is one of my 10s - I like it very much. Furthermore I think it enriches the DPC collective portfolio. Put simply, I wish we saw more stuff like this. Let me tell you why it pushes all the right buttons for me:

1. Superb use of high contrast - possibly the best I have ever seen.
2. Bold and effective composition. I'd have cropped some of the top. I'd have also been wrong to do so.
3. Supreme clarity - the new size put to good effect!
4. The hint of the black wall to the left.
5. The candour of the capture.

I actually regard this as a perfect photograph. A rare and beautiful thing.

Awarded for this landmark challenge.

Nice light and b&W conversion. The white headscarf looks great on the black background. (voted earlier)

Great light! A bit static, but I love all the contrasts.
