I know that there is the distracting element on the frontside but I like this photo I think that is a nearly unique photo.
this woman is the seamstress for the clothes of the shepherds of the Neapolitan crib in a factory in San Gregorio Armeno (a quarter of naples) and the photo is a really candid photo.

I love this - all the elements are so atmospheric. Frankly, hadn't I read about the thing in the front in your notes, I would not have noticed, because the photo is so fascinating. Well done!

I'm not sure if the graininess was intended, but I like it on this image. It works wit the paint peeling on the walls.

Interesting, nicely framed and grainy effect works well.

too bad her face is so darkened but, the shot is a good one

Amazing, interesting shot.

I dropped score a bit only because the color grain is a bit excessive and distracting (and could have been fixed).

Nice Image - Like the way we are looking in on her world. I cropped off the top a little to just where the light is and it makes the image stronger I think as our eye is taken up and away from the subject due to the fussy top of the frame. Like the lighting

needs light and contrast work

great capture... love the light on her face , texture of wall, cross, frames etc...
couple of distractions though: i.e chair front right..
noted the "frame" - but.. by doing a bit closer crop (and losing the frame), most of the distractions would have disappeared... and I would have added a point or two!
