Yes and yes. Man, this is just perfect.

Despite a very gloomy day , this is an awesome shot…Love the hands of the lady …lol…

Not dispite of so much as because of the gloomy, perfect time of early winter evening when a woman between two uncertain book-ended years of life ( that will only exist for a brief, gloaming moment–and is , suddenly, gone forever), moving both literally and metaphorically through her own legend toward and into an unknown and mysterious night.

present moment imprinted for forever
Gorgeous pic ;)

I like this one very much. The time of the day, snow, light, and the most of all, the expression on her face, everything works just perfect. Good shot!
March 5, 2013 at 9:11 am
Beautiful shot! Even if she is cold, she’d rather keep her coat on her shoulder and stay stylish all the way!
March 5, 2013 at 9:15 am
Love the glow of the car lights behind her. It’s serendipity to get shot a great shot!

you are sooooo great!
Not surprised it’s your favorite of the season, it’s an absolutely gorgeous photo! I’m cold just looking at it (and I mean that as a compliment!)

I don’t usually comment, but this is just beautiful.

This shot is amazing!!!
March 5, 2013 at 9:26 am
Very nice pic and I like her outfit.
March 5, 2013 at 9:28 am
Pretty shot :)
March 5, 2013 at 9:30 am
You’re right, great shot! Love the natural pose, the light…everything!
March 5, 2013 at 9:31 am
What a gorgeous shot; love the headlights + snow. Thank you for always posting beautiful images for our viewing pleasure!
March 5, 2013 at 9:33 am
Time freezes when she walks by…
March 5, 2013 at 9:40 am
very very very good.
Yep. Magical quality to this photo, Scott … and it reminds me of van Gogh’s cafe paintings, where he used the opposite sides of the colour wheel: orange (from the cafe lights and street lights) and deep blues (of the night sky).
I love this photo.
Outstanding image, it is all about the light and it just frames her elegant composure and style.
March 5, 2013 at 9:43 am
love that coat!!!! xo, Alma
March 5, 2013 at 9:47 am
Yes, this is a very nice shot – dark and moody.

This is very well captured!
Greetings from London
March 5, 2013 at 10:08 am
I really really like this photo. Also like the added dimension with the snow and the dark color story that is happening around the lovely woman.
March 5, 2013 at 10:18 am
This looks like a shot right out of movie or a designer clothing ad. So many questions come to mind when I see this photo: 1) Why does she look so perplexed? 2) Where is she going? 30 where did she buy those pants?

March 5, 2013 at 10:23 am
You really caught everything with this one. The fashion, the lighting, the setting, and most importantly, the mood. What is she thinking about? Just beautiful Scott, thanks for the much needed morning lift.
March 5, 2013 at 10:25 am
Great atmosphere on a soggy eve and the lady very chic as she winds her way across the street. Milan must be amazing.

Will be very nice if you give to us his/her names and occupations…
We like so much your pics
March 5, 2013 at 10:43 am
So beautiful! And the different setting really shows your versatility!

gorgeous light/woman/scarf. all a girl needs, really.
March 5, 2013 at 11:15 am
(this is sublime, by the way)
do you sometimes just start shooting and not ask the subject – and hope they don’t suddenly change their expression or start to “pose…” and wreck the moment or break the spell?
Or do you approach some people after you take the shot? Some of your subjects clearly know they’re being shot and “participate,” so to speak…while some are not acknowledging you/the camera, and that’s what i was wondering…
March 5, 2013 at 11:19 am
The Light! Ah the light!! It’s just gorgeous!
March 5, 2013 at 11:20 am
I agree, the natural lighting is beautiful- I just wish you had something other than car traffic in the background
March 5, 2013 at 11:26 am
You really captured a feeling in this photo!

Very beautiful. (And for some reason I now have Blondie’s “Shayla” stuck in my head–her hair, the mood…?)
March 5, 2013 at 11:34 am
Phenomenal shot! That Benz in the back sets it off haha!

Thank you for this. I want this picture as a poster…
March 5, 2013 at 12:38 pm
This is perfect. I would buy this as a print. Please make a print of it!
March 5, 2013 at 12:51 pm
I agree, this one is atmospheric and reminds me of a movie. I wonder what happened before and what will go on after.
March 5, 2013 at 12:54 pm
Her madonna-esque hands draw the viewer into the center of the image. This would be a classic study for Parmigianino, painter of the high Renaissance Mannerist style. Lovely light lends to the mysterious ambience.
March 5, 2013 at 1:08 pm
Beautiful, like a movie still from a film noir.
March 5, 2013 at 1:13 pm
March 5, 2013 at 1:21 pm
You just said it.. The right place, at the right time. This pic is amazing, love how you capture every detail and the light is just perfect, congrats!
Im a mexican fashion blogger Im sure you will love my blog! :)
March 5, 2013 at 1:30 pm
Perfect moment, the light is so beautiful! I wonder what she’s thinking….
March 5, 2013 at 1:55 pm
One amazing photo! Love everything about it!
March 5, 2013 at 2:07 pm
It’s beautiful!! The light, the snow and her great style!! I love it!
March 5, 2013 at 2:40 pm
Look like a fashionista in dire need of a visit to paradise.
March 5, 2013 at 2:52 pm
It pays off, of course. It’s a great picture.
March 5, 2013 at 3:21 pm
This image is sublime. The snow, the light from the car — it is just perfect, very cinematographic.
March 5, 2013 at 3:35 pm
Blue night and iridescent sidewalk. Beautiful.
March 5, 2013 at 3:39 pm
Love it too!
March 5, 2013 at 3:59 pm
Yes, yes, yes! The epitome of the cliche saying “a picture is worth a thousand words,” except there’s nothing cliche about this perfection. XOXO
March 5, 2013 at 4:37 pm
So awesomesauce!!! I keep missing those types of shots because I always feel as if I have to ask the individual first for their photograph. Maybe I need to work on my ninja skills.

March 5, 2013 at 4:48 pm
I totally agree! This is one of your best shots that I have come across. Fashion aside, this is a great candid street shot. The color palette makes me think of Gregory Crewdson :)
blue nights – paints an image in the mind, just like the joan didion novel
March 5, 2013 at 4:59 pm
what a stunning picture!
love love love
March 5, 2013 at 5:03 pm
Divine lighting….isn’t is almost always about lighting when you think of it?
March 5, 2013 at 5:11 pm
You really do take beautiful pictures. I love the passion you have for it.
March 5, 2013 at 5:17 pm
More than an outfit photo this is a great artistic picture!
Really a great work, Love it!
March 5, 2013 at 5:25 pm
March 5, 2013 at 5:43 pm
this shot gives me goosebumps, it’s like her image is on another level………..ethereal…. best shot!
March 5, 2013 at 5:58 pm
LOVE that the sheen on the street ends right at the edge her foot. She is lovely and the shot is sublime.
March 5, 2013 at 6:32 pm
There is magic here.
March 5, 2013 at 7:50 pm
the light from behind is nice but the cars don’t do justice to this picture
March 5, 2013 at 9:39 pm
And the Mercedes in the background couldn’t be more perfect.
March 5, 2013 at 11:36 pm
agreed. the light, the mood…the snow flurries…magnificent
March 6, 2013 at 3:49 am
oh yes, good use of cool ambient/warm tungsten light…total winner!

March 6, 2013 at 2:40 pm
This is like a scene straight out of a Kieślowski film. Life won’t pause to acknowledge her sadness.
March 6, 2013 at 4:20 pm
first saw an image (without Mr. Shuman`s comment) and thought “oh, wow!! that’s for what we love your photos – for such shots!! honest and beautiful”
March 6, 2013 at 6:47 pm
Just the light. Wonderful! You can imagine or dream about this woman. Perfect and timeless
March 6, 2013 at 7:42 pm
March 6, 2013 at 8:27 pm
too much cliché in the setting to be a good shot; if you make a photo à la “I want it to be like this”, that’s never gonna be orignal; you have to follow the given situation instead and see what’s original or great about a certain moment or setting..
March 6, 2013 at 8:28 pm
This is so stunning!!! I love those moments when its just snowing just a tiny little bit.
March 6, 2013 at 8:44 pm
This is wonderful – I always love your snow shots – maybe because I don’t see much of it now I live in Australia!
March 6, 2013 at 9:22 pm
That is art. Isn’t it romantic? Your next book cover for sure.
March 6, 2013 at 9:36 pm
Gosh, I think you’re right, Scott. This is stunning. From the setting, to her elegance, to the snow. Perfection!

March 8, 2013 at 9:15 am
the blue and electric lights both soft deep and moody, the woman in a boy toys’ environment, the classic italian architecture as cool non dated envelope, three characters: that magic number makes every ensemble plural and balanced: adding the nude strong colours of the main character vs the two faded colourful almost just decor backround characters – green beanie & hazelnut hair; both night and day or just inbetween: the everlasting concept of contemporaneity – adding the classical concept of alone in the city…. scott you need to assemble an art (photography) exhibition, man!….
March 8, 2013 at 10:10 pm
OMG, such a great shot. The light coming in from behind, the snow falling…so ethereal.
March 9, 2013 at 7:01 pm
Cant’t stop staring at this pic- really nice capture and a special feeling to it
March 11, 2013 at 7:33 am
I just love coming to this site. The fashion is so interesting, but I come for the photography. In my view, the contrasting light makes this such a stunning photograph (the headlight from the car contrasting with the gray light from the sky). Then, of course, there’s the moment you’ve captured to boot. Bravo!
March 13, 2013 at 4:59 am
This reminds me of James Dean in boulevard of broken dreams. Just stunning
March 15, 2013 at 6:01 pm
Fashion noir…. fashion mystery….girl in the midst of a city romance….
I love the various scenarios that this photo may entail and the ability to project our fantasy upon it
Also a gorgeous photo in itself:
The composition is just amazingly perfect, the lighting stupendous.
March 16, 2013 at 2:56 am
This one is lovely! She just left her lover in a hotel room and is going back home, that’s why she looks so sad and did not have time to button her coat even if its cold. OR she just went down to buy cigarettes and is heading back in to continue the party :D
March 17, 2013 at 4:48 pm
I don’t think there could possibly be anything wrong about this photo. Love everything about it. Also, it reminds me of a movie still and i love that even more!
March 20, 2013 at 6:31 am
The lady, snow dops, lights and car are gorgeous. I like this photo very much.
March 22, 2013 at 9:26 pm
The mood in this photo is so strong. This is my favorite shot from you.
