[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
In Positano, Italy, this very striking woman walked onto the beach at 10am looking very much like a movie star. Needless to say everyone with a camera or cellphone took her picture. I like the interaction between the man in the background and the subject. In color this looked like a snapshot. In black and white in this case I think it looks more artistic.

Hi Roger,
What an amazing shot!
What a wonderful lady!
I like her pose; it is as if she flaunts with her body and of me it can.....
Greetings from Netherland,
Adri

A wise choice for the conversion Roger. Well composed to capture not only the lady but the chap and his expression. Nice tones and textures and notes which describe your motive well.
David

nice piece of streetphoto

i like the construction with the lady in black
and the face of the man in BG says all!!!

glamour is a good term to qualify this pose,

HI Roger
B&W is perfect for this shot, really making her look like a glamour star. The bystander's look says it all, adding him to your composition really makes the picture speak out.
Great shot.
Dot
BTW the theme was fingers....... you aimed just a bit higher???
:-))

Hi dear friend,
I think this is one of the best B&W shots on TL with this subject.
Amazing from all points of view.
The pose of the model, the light, the BG.... perfect!
All my congrats!
Have a lovely WE.
Ioana

Hi Roger; glamourous indeed! You could have told me this was Cindy Crawford and I would have believed you!! striking similarity.
Great shot, and a great choice to show it in B&W.

Hey Roger,
There's attitude all over this one. The timing of your capture with both her jaunty and somewhat haughty pose along with the almost "spit take" movement on of the man in the background is a classic capture frozen forever in time.
Black and white, it seems, is very effective, at least for me, since it makes one focus on the "action" versus the more "obvious" parts of the photo.
Good work,
TFS,
Wilt

Hi Roger,
And glamour on the photo too. It is a great compo and an excelent light as a great b/w work. Great (and happy) moment.
Congrats, mb

Hi Roger,
Fantastic journalistic shot, the gentleman in the background brings a sort of humor to the shot. Very well composed and a perfect candidate for black and white. Congrats!

Hello Roger! Only in Italy! :-) Excellent shot, like you said the B&W makes it a classy shot, well done!

Mario

Hi Roger,

She is very charming. I'm going to take a shot of her within your shot! Good capture. Good chose of B/W for this elegant shot. Good lights. TFS!

Regards,
Masroor

Beautiful, is a reincarnation of sophia lorren or Gine Lolobrigida... :-)
Magnificent tribute to the beauties of Italian cinema of the Fifties and Sixties.
The composition is interesting, black and white master well. Picture shows the distance that separates us from this woman.

A realy good picture,
Thx for sharing.

Boa noite Roger

Very well taken: You capture a mood and in a suprb way "paparrazi"

My regards

Teresat

Hi, Roger -
Fantastic candid shot, with lots of elements working well. The way her head is turned and her chin raised gives her that confident, aloof look that so many attractive European women feature. No way to overlook the obvious - she is well-endowed and you have captured her figure to its full advantage. Like you, I love the blurred man in the background checking her out. Good decision to present in monochrome, which gives it a bit of a nostalgic feel. Nice work.

Hi Roger...


Great captured.
She's a sensual lady.
Very artistic scene.

Hi Roger
Great B&W
Very amazing subject
Good eye

Regards
Vincenzo

u are definetly right about the b/w here. and she does look like a star. very comfident. preaty good for a snap shot... well done..

Well, Roger, really good photo, great capture, and I guess that B/W version is more attractive...

Helo Roger,
You've really captured a great moment of tension between the two persons, the b&w gives an extra dimension to the photo. Well balanaced image, perfect focus on the "diva". It's really Italy: to see and to be seen.
Well seen,
Henri

Hi Roger...
Another excellent B&W catch, nicely done..!
Fine image, and details...
Best regards,
George

Your picture, and specialy that is B/W, remember me the old Felinis movies and anather italians movies. Great capture and good interaction in the picture with the man in background. Tipicaly italian scene. Beautifull. Regards Clanyi

Great moment...I agree with you that will be more artistic in BW. I Like the interaction the man in background too...

Very good shot for the study of the human race.....
Superb....realisation!!!
Claude

Hi Roger,
Nice moment and good choice of B & W.Very confident and beautiful women.Nice focal point creating a blurred BG with the foreground sharpness almost isolating the women at first sight.Well done.
