thanks for your pithy critique, Leo

unfortunately I think you confused Olivia, who was the subject of the second photograph, with the first tableau photograph's semi-naked lady

she was coming out of the door & I caught her using a relatively slow shutter speed and panned to give a sense of movement, which I love in photographs
her face is in fairly good focus (in the original file I can make out eyelashes)

I think the panning worked in this one, to help isolate her though she does tend to stand out a bit as "over the top" is her thing

I appreciate your comment about mingling & perhaps you think me timid , but had I gotten in any closer, suds from the gentleman to the right's beer may have splashed on my camera

I very much like lots of points of interest in my photographs, though I admit I don't always have a "message" to offer

producing something which when seen cannot be unseen seems a reasonable purpose for a photograph
