Something different from me. Yes, its a b/w HC but I usually don't or will not take pictures of people. Something I'm trying to get used to. Enjoy

i get the picture... color would've been better than b&w.. even selective coloring in just the subject to show that she is standing out alone. good title!

Nice pose, but the overall image seems too low-key, and the cup is brightly distracting. Might have been better to try isolation by DOF, and put your levels and constrast back to where there is some definition of the coat from the bench, etc.

A nice try, but I don't quite get the feeling that the woman is alone in the crowd. The other woman on her right seems to be calling her attention, even. Bumping to 7.

I love this shot. Very photojournalistic feeling yet very artistic

...in more ways than one. Great image to get the viewer thinking. Why is she alone? Why is she obviously much younger than the others in her seating area? What's she looking at? Who's she waiting for? What event is this? Is she related to the photographer? So many questions...

Compositionally this image is right on, and I really like the tonal range of the B/W processing you've done. Well done! Good luck in the challenge.

Heh - that's the concept I wanted to shoot. Didn't have time to find what you did. :)

This would work better for me if it were broader in scope, to show the crowd she's in.
