What an awesome photo! Genius idea to hose down the window to look like a gray rainy day! Congratulations on such a strong finish.

It is a nice composition of repeating lines and shapes. A very peaceful capture. My only concern are a few distracting bright spots but these do not IMO take away from this beautiful photo.

I like this being a monotone. Maybe it could have been a little more tightly cropped?

Nice, like it a lot but if I were composing this, I would have put her in the left corner instead of her feet in the right one. 6 from me.

Beautiful light and great use of B&W. Love the rain on the window and her jumper, make me feel cold just looking at this photo.

You caught a very nice mood here. Backlighting is always difficult, but you have nice control of your highlights ansd shadow detail, resulting in a pleasant photo. I think I might have considered pointing the camera a bit more to the right, so that the window is centered in the frame and the subject is a bit more off centered to the left - the empty wall to the left looks a bit odd, compositionally, to my eye...

I would have shifted the whole image left a bit so the model was almost leaning againts the side of the photo but I think it's very good

Well done on the exposure and compostion. A nice triangle shape within a rectangle
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/25/2006 02:44:20 PM
Very nice B&W here. The natural lighting and shadows really give this a soft, emotive feel. I would have prefered to see more crop to remove more of the dark left side since it gives the composition an unbalanced feel that does not appear intentional. Nice shot nonetheless... I vote a 7

Really lovely, B&W was a good choice for this.

This is a lovely image, a warm cup of coffee/tea, sitting, watching the rain, so relaxing and peaceful, almost makes me sleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeepy, oh, sorry, started to doze off there, LOL :)

A very lovely image overall, the cropping threw me off just a bit leaving that extra over on the left but the more I look at it the more I like it. First glance I threw a 7 on this, raising to an 8, could use just a touch, a very tiny touch more contrast to me personally. But overall, well done

Good idea, something I was toying with myself. Also good thought with the coffee cup too.
