    A wonderful picture in so many ways – the lines and shadows, that bare section of lower face.

    It also opens up so many questions about that beautiful woman. I think that's what you're so good at.

    There's something a bit set about her mouth whereas her eyes are softer – a combination which intrigues, makes you want to know more about who she is. Not what job she does, editor of somethingorother, but who that person really is behind the hat.

    Great hat & very nice use of the shadows. It was probably very tempting to expose for the background and give the whole picture an air of darkness but you (or the camera) made an interesting choice of exposing for the face: the shadows remain subdued instead of very black and we can see her expressions).

    Very atypical. I like that.

    Love how the eyes work with the hat (though if she taken it off she'd have looked as though she had conjunctivits, or terrible insomnia. Just sayin') and mouth. The shadow the brim casts over her face bridges her makeup kind of perfectly.

    My grandmother's family owned one of the first ever hotels in Atlantic City and she grew up there during the Golden era. She was a real beauty in her day. This photograph brings her to life for me. She has the perfect face for this look. It's an incredible shot. I'd love to see how she put the rest of the look together.

    I love the shadows falling exactly in an angle on the nose with the focus on such a well-done red lip. I just can't pull off a red lip as well as she does, but I guess like here, the secret is to make it matte.

    Very coco chanel before she cut her hair. This lady could have been a spy in a movie about The War to end all wars, the great war or First World War. She is mysterious;knowing and very sophisticated. Her eyes are on her goal and her lips are very determined. The hat, hair style and lace collar are circa 1918. There is a certain sadness around her eyes, but this will not deter her from her life’s journey. Definitely movie material!
