I shot this at the Pike Place Market in Seattle while I was killing time before having to go catch an airplane.

This was shot with my shiny new Canon 10-22mm wide angle which I wouldn't have anticipated would be any good for candid shots because you have to be so close. However, I found that it's wide enough that I can aim my camera away from the subject, and still catch the subject in the frame. This makes it easier to catch people in candid moments because it's not so obvious that I'm focusing on them.

Congrats on 4th place and a PB! I gotta say this picture has it all and could be in a newspaper or magazine or stock photo. Composition is spot on, the colors are nice, and you've got the 'action' of her doing what she does with the flowers. Really everything works together to put this woman in a context and I really like the shot.

This is a wonderful, fill-the-frame shot. Great colors and very natural. I assume your subject didn't realize she was being photographed! Nice DOF as well!

Oh yes! This is an awesome candid. Candid with color and interest and a great story. Hope to see this one ribbon or at least be in the very top few!

In the ratings pass, this reviewer was uncomfortable rating this image - there are several levels of impact here which change every time it's viewed. After six views and a close inspection of the image, this reviewer has to rerate it from a 5 to a 9 because it has the technical quality one looks for in a high rated image even if it isn't as effective from an artistic standpoint - it lacks that certain "something" that makes it standout. It's still a cut above the highly rated images in this challenge. While not exactly a ribbon contender, this should place well in the challenge.

One of the few entries where the photographer knows what a candid photograph is. 8

i love the bright cheery foreground of the flowers and how the woman almost appears to be a flower herself among her products - very nice work

I like this. The unusual placement of the primary subject adds some tension that works well in this case.
