This is a very artsy interesting composition - a cross between Monet and Magritte. Monet's watercolor paintings of flowers observed/appreciated by an faceless lady with lively and vivid orange hair. She is faceless because she could be anyone - a way for some observers to place themselves in her shoes - As she observes the painting and contemplates what she sees so to do we observe the 'art' photo of her and we now slip into the same shoes of observing and comtemplating the piece. The orange hair and the collar are bold and vibrant which may be a statement about the personality of the lady we are observing.

Stunning. And it makes you think lots of things.

Interesting subject matter. The orange lends a very manipulated look to the photo. I think you could get the idea across as well by making the orange much more subtle. And how might it look if you cropped the person so only 1/2 or 3/4 of her shows? Might be less conventional.

What a quirky, fun shot! Was it a found shot or did you find a model?

I love this! It is almost as if this museum watcher has entered the piece of art to become one herself!
Was the clothing she was wearing actually this orange? I can't help but think that her hair would stand out even better if her clothing didn't have the orange tinge. Selecting and changing the curves of just the clothing probably would have done the trick.
