Lady with the umbrella

Donna Roberts 1/27/2005 12:16:06 AM

That was me under that umbrella SJ !!! Only kidding - but it *has* been heavily raining ALL DAY in Brisbane :-(
Very depressing but your gorgeous capture has cheered me up.

Leanne M.E. Boyd 1/27/2005 12:18:17 AM

I really admire minimalists - excellent image - simple and effective! I wish I could do this, but my character won't let me - I got to fill all the space. #1065908

Dan Holm 1/27/2005 12:20:48 AM

Tremendous shot, Sanjay!! The lighting on this is fantastic! Excellent work, yet again! #1065911

Jordi Delgado 1/27/2005 12:20:58 AM

This is just beautiful, Sanjay!! The line made by the different tonalities on the pavement frames her wonderfully!!

Love it!!!!

:-) #1065913

Cathy Stancil 1/27/2005 12:24:10 AM

Somehow my comment did not show, so here I am again...I like the mystery of this and the sepia tone ...Great composition as always. I think it has been raining almost everywhere today ! #1065919

Stanley J. Contrades 1/27/2005 12:27:53 AM

I'm going to ditto Leanne's responses if you don't mind, Sanjay (or Leanne for that matter), as this is simply an effective use of lighting to create this excellent image! Bravo!
Much Aloha,
Stan #1065924

Watching ladies from office window? I'm sure you're THE BOSS in your office!!
The texture of the road, the gait of the lady, the shadow falling ahead and the B/W effect really adds mystry to the picture!! Who's she? Donna? Madonna?

Fantastic capture, Sanjay!!! Simply fantastic.... #1065929

Mata Patan 1/27/2005 12:58:10 AM

What a pity, Sanjay, I really think she was pretty. Nice capture and light. Well done! #1065946

Patricia Marroquin 1/27/2005 1:48:57 AM

Sanjay, you better not wonder too much about what she is like, your wife won't like it! LOL! Seriously, excellent image and I think it just wouldn't be quite as nice seeing her face. :-) #1065970

Judy S. Fung 1/27/2005 2:18:19 AM

Nice capture, Sanjay! Really like the mystery and tone of the image. #1065988

Paul Michko 1/27/2005 2:40:36 AM

Terrific image, Sanjay. Great catch, but remember, you're married. :) #1065999

Marsha S. Smith 1/27/2005 2:45:20 AM

I love everything about it. The tones, the glitter of the rain on the road, the fact that she appears totally alone in the world. Beautiful image. #1066005

Carolyn M. Fletcher 1/27/2005 2:48:19 AM

Excellent, Sanjay!! Now get back to work!! I love this! #1066010

Excellent image, Sanjay! I love the tones, lighting and perspective! #1066060

Marcie A. Fowler 1/27/2005 3:38:29 AM

Excellent image Sanjay. Love the sense of mystery of not being able to see her face. Now each viewer can come up with their own story. Why was she there, where was she going, did she know she was being watched, etc. That's what I love about your images . . . so many possibilities. Great lighting and composition on this. Think we may see it again. #1066076

Cathy Gregor 1/27/2005 3:43:59 AM

Super image, Sanjay!! Love the perspective and lighting!

It was raining and I watched her from my office window and couldn't resist my temptation to capture her movements... I wanted to see her face...wished that she would look up but she never did.... Still wonder what she was like??!!!
