More ladies' candid portraits
I am completely unqualified as a photographer to comment, so don't put to much value on my words.
In the first image the subject is leaving the frame with the rest of the visible scene behind her, have you framed it in this way for effect or as a statement? The second image is interesting for me, I would have liked the bottom left corner to be also filled with cloud in place of the tilted background, but I guess you can't always control that in street.
I am interested in how you get your balance with contrasting light and colour in direct sunlight. Even at that time of day, it is something I have difficulty controlling. Is it equipment, PP, or technique?
I hope you don't mind me adding another image to your thread, but I like the idea of themed threads and would like to complement your good work with another in theme for CC. Maybe we can keep it going
