This is an attempt to recapture my not-well-received Henri Cartier-Bresson entry. It might even be the same girl on the way to work in the morning. But no wristwatch this time. Anyway close enough - and probably this one will not be well received either.

Enticing image... It's interesting how the pattern on her dress matches the building. Excellent work!

Too bad "GAP" wasn't between the woman and the other two people.

Your second attempt got a lot of things right. The angle of the camera is better especially without the twisted horizon. The exposure is good and the PP is brighter with a wider range of highlights and shadows. A couple of things suffered in the second take such as the sharpness due to the camera shake. The blurred woman in the foreground is not a problem though as she is moving which adds to the dynamic feel.

Very well done! You found a good location and a model with clothes that resemble HCB years. I also like the motion blur on her (beautiful) legs. Gave you an 8 but will bump you up. Hope that this was not staged.

In Cartier-Bresson style, I think the blur of movement is spot on. But I wonder if that will end up hurting your overall score (I would have likely take a point off for it without the title).
