I took this shot of this very elderly lady a few years back and it has always been one of my favourite candid shots.

Sheila- this is a stunning street shot.
It also is a bit disquieting to me. Not sure why, but it's linked to the woman being incredibly wrinkled- and looking right at you.
It's the kind of shot I also would have taken- and then wondered about.
I'm not a fan of tinting generally, but it seems to work very well here.
Nice work all 'round.

Thanks Charlie. I saw her sitting at Sydney's Circular Quay and I sat nearby. I was just about to speak to her when she got up, foraged in her bag, looked at me and smiled and went on her way. A lost opportunity as I am sure she has a story or three to tell. I was drawn to her as she looked like a much older version of my mother who died many years ago.

It's in here somewhere - the black hole that is a woman's handbag

Sheila- the second image is also excellent. And the two work well together.
Funny- knowing that she gave you a smile makes all the difference in my thoughts about the first image.
A photograph may be worth a thousand words, but words can be powerful and subtle also- at the same time .

Both are great.
Processing is superb and each is emotionally evocative.

Sheila,

These are great but are not improved by your watermark in the middle of the images which I find very distracting.

They are both beautifully done, and touching, portraits. Makes me think of Maude (Harold and Maude). In N 1, I can't help but comparing the wrinkles, hand and forearm on one side, and the bag's leather on the other side.

Sheila,
Both are wonderful captures. The first looks just a bit over cooked with the yellowed 2 filter IMHO. Perhaps a little contrast adjustment with the filter would be nice. Just looks a bit too contrasty for your subject.
Love the second image and an excellent capture.
