I am a b/w photo for sure with the Human figure in the centre.
I am an urban woman too. I need the noise of cities, the crowd of people, the lights of night in the city ( sometimes I try nocturne).
I am like this woman in calle Alcalá ...just one more walking in life time.
Eternity is too much time, and I feel it.

Hello T

Yes you have a unique style here at TL. It is called the master of capturing emotion in B/W. Many of your images are Masterfully done, this image is no exception. well done on the lighting, hard contrast, and note.


Hi Teresat,
Yes this is your style with lovely shadow and black & whith composition with great contrast and light..
I like your style of dailylife pictures like this..
A very well done presentation as usual..

Your beautiful style Teresa!! You have a knack for capturing a perfect moment, with a perfect mood. I love the tones and the contrasts in your shots too. The diagonals of the shadow and the sidewalk edge in this photo are really nice. Well done my friend


I really like this picture. You've captured such a movement, such a story... This woman looks impatient to go back home with her supermarket's bags. Light is perfect and shadows are giving a beautiful aspect to the scene. I also enjoy the different patterns on the two parts of the ground, and on her dress too.
It's a nice presentation of your style :)


A touching note to a emotional shot, dear Teresa!

Perfect use of light and a well play between light and shadow.
The sharpness and POV are perfect.
Marvelous work as usual!

Um abracos,

Hello Teresat-

Beautiful shot! I like the POV and the use of leading lines to strengthen placement of the subject. The diagonal line also created good dynamism in this image. Very nice, thanks for sharing and have a good day.

Grandisoe compo et iamge quel jeu d'ombre et lumière de cette dame avec un double pavage, quelle compo et iamge, grandisoe.

Bravo et amitié


Bonjour Teresat,

L'ombre magique se déplace au rythme du mouvement comme si elle embrassait le personnage!!!
Jolie réalité sur cette image lumineuse.
Un style idéal, bien à vous qui se reflète dans cette composition ordonnée; c'est extra.
Bravo Amitié.


Dear Teresa
Your note is quite amazing, I like the way you are thinking about yourself
I try to match the shot with your note but I lost something... population and noise?!
Your shot remind me of loneliness, but anyway it is really lovely photo

Hi Teresa,
This is your style, O.K. and what style!
Great artistic work converted to B&W with good play with light and shadows.
Very original presentation of capturing this shot from such height and produce this outstanding daily life composition.
Well done, my dear friend.

Olá Teresa,
You're specialist in skill of making impression from monochromes. And this picture has great aesthetic impact. Luminosity if fantastic along with shadow of the lady. An awesome presentation my friend, well done. Thanks for sharing.
Best Wishes,

Your style all the way Teresa , you and this woman are alike , she lives in a large city so do you , you enjoy being in the crowd , the surroundings sounds and lights astound you...well , as much as they probably do to her , your description as a city dweller and certainly proud to be harmonizes with my perception of a large city, although i live in a small town i feel just like you , living in a larger town ( it has its pros and cons ...) must be funnier with the variety of things to do and see , it reflects my own tastes and that of at least a billion others as a matter of fact !
I like your B&W approach , suits your style of photography , i know when you post a photo whithout reading your name !
Thank you dear for participating to the theme ,
Um abraço,

yes, you feel it dear Teresa and so do I. Beautiful compassionate study in light and shade with diagonal composition. Superba. Janos

I wish Teresa,I had your passion for every shot I took,unfortunately I'm not that gifted,but do recognize the talent that you have,in capturing the emotions of life within a two dimensional image. A perfect image for this theme,it is definately your style,full of emotions & passion.
Best Wishes


Hi, Teresat. Agree with you and the photo really depicts your style, Black and white with high contrast,telling a story and composition with strong lines and shadows. Nice tones in this photo with sharpness. Cheers.

Obrigada urban woman in B&W with shadow...and full of colour inside.

Hi Teresa,
a great B&W. Perfectly timed to get the shadow right too. Nice job.

Very simple Teresat - your style for sure. I like the composition with diagonal thirds... The monotone effect looks good too.


Dear teresa
in your style it is and a splendid one as always.
a simple scene artistically captured and presented. unique and of course original perspective. your photos are who you are and I'm glad I have met you.

Dona Teresa, permita-me dizer-lhe que quem faz uma foto como essa o mínimo que merece é ser tratada de Dona, com respeito e atenção.
É, de fato, o seu estilo debruçando-se sobre a solitude, não a solidão, do olhar para o dentro da alma. Bela imagem.

Hi Teresat

Yes that's your style, with expression of emotion, superb b&w tones with a subtle sepia tint, marvellous graphism or repetition & interesting pov's. Tfs!

Hi Teresa,

I love the minimalism here, with good use of light and shadow. Nice lead-in lines and B&W suits this nicely. TFS


Hi Teresa this is a fine example of your style. I see you as an artist working with light and shade and showing the beauty in different textures. TFS

Hi Teresa,
Yes it is so you!
I would like to have your eye for this kind of street photo!
Great sensibility with the interpretation of the theme.
LOve your B&w composition with the diagonal and the long shadow.
An unique style and signature!


Hello Teresat,your use of the lines and shadow along the diagonals show the touch of really good photography,along with the ladies step it brings a nice touch of drama to an every day image.
Superb composition and presentation.
My best regards Les.

Bonjour Teresat,

Indeed it looks like your style. I do remember some of your images B&W, hard contrast, Tri-X style, And with her dress this image looks like picture made years ago by some know photographer as HCB, Eliot Herwit, and many others. I like this week theme, because it give peoples the chance to pin point their interest in a specific photography domain. Nice work and TFS.

Thanks for all these emotions you capture and present
Love them !!!

hi Teresat, you certainly do have a handle on the b&w images. This one reminds me of an old b&w movie with the lady on her own.Fiona

Your style is awesome and I do like it very much. They are thought provoking images with good quality. You are the Imogen Cunningham of today! They are very well done, tfs.

Bonjour Teresat,
Beaucoup de simplicité dans ce cliché en fait une composition trés agréable à regarder...
Cette femme et son ombre attirent le regard ainsi que les quelques éléments qui l'entourent, comme les pavés de la rue, le macadam qui ressort bien en NB, puis sur le haut de la photo, la route et sa signalisation...
Le tout dans un parallélisme qu'on ne peut ignorer, c'est ton style, ce.ui de dénicher les choses de la vie courante mise de façon excellente en oeuvre d'art...
Félicitations Teresat...

Hello,this image communicates well.It expresses your stated philosophy to perfection.Fine work,Otto.

Hi Teresat
Wonderful shot of the women from a POV where you beautifully captured her expression as well shadow.
Have a Nice Day!

Hi Teresat,

Your NOTE show that beside photography you do poetry very nice and not every photographer has this ability but it is the soil benith that grows such talent, about photo many said lot so I say just amazing, TFS.


Dear Teresa,

The lighting, shadow, and texture are all appealing in this exact composition. Been a while. Hope all is well.


É grande o impacto visual desta mulher e sua sombra contra o solo de concreto. Ela parece flutuar na luz que inunda a cena de forma irrealista.
Parabéns pela poesia da foto.

Very striking and contrasty image. I love the strong light coming in from a low angle, casting that long shadow.

Hello teresat

I like ur style,
beautiful choice of B/W. Great point of view for placing the subject in the center and managing the shadow to the corner. nice composition.


Ciao Teresa, fascinating B&W composition with fantastic shadow, excellent perspective and splendid light, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Bom dia amiga Teresa,

Aparentemente simples, mas reflexo (e, portanto, complexa fotografia, na sua execução) da capacidade de "enxergar" a fotografia, no que você é mestra.


Hello Teresa.

You presence here is felt none more so that this image, the grayscale shadow of this lady stands out so so well, as does your creative eye. You can see the light/shade areas you want to capture.

Where has she come from and where does she go, was it shopping for a friend or a gift to a loved one.... Love the scene, love the mind set, love the mood, x

A composition in Teresa style, sure! :) Only you are able to do these kind of works. They are simple, essential but able to give feeling and emotion.
Lovely lighting . I like the composition, with the sidewalks which across the image and the woman (focal point) which stands out very well.
Also the format is perfect. TFS.
Have a nice WE.
Ciao! Vanda

Teresa t
Maybe it's a shadow passed by mistake.
Or a memory of the old girl.
Of course a lover of B & N [banal and simplistic solution], then a view of the world unlike any other.
Perhaps one reason darker than black, and with a little light ... very little.

Hoi Teresat,

A typical Teresat-style photo ! ;-)

Good note and a superb photo.
Funny that the shadow is parallel with the street and is perpendicular to the walking-direction.
I like the diagonal presentation too.

power of shadows is perfect.
