On a rare visit to Copenhagen, stopped for coffee, and this Lady stood waiting with the longest hair I think I have ever seen.

Kind of interesting with her long hair and the baby. I wish there was more space for her to 'walk into'. A lot of distracting elements, like the lamp, the person right in front, sort of by her nose (red jacket), the man by her elbow (blue shirt). The guy in the cap might have worked but with all three of them, and the vent just by her head. It is more of a family album type of shot. When taking a picture, always look for distracting elements and eliminate them. You also take a lot, all, pictures from behind. Perhaps it is time to challenge yourself and try and show us their faces. You wanted to illustrate the hair. You did that right. But it does not grab. Don't be shy. Next time, ask if you can take the picture and focus on what it is you want to show. it could have been a close-up or even a panorama where the hair played a central role. Now, it is a woman with a baby that has long hair.
