    On a visit to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, whilst waiting for my wife to return from the long line up for the washroom, I sat with my camera catching the interesting expressions people have looking at the exhibits..... in this case who's staring at who?

    Great capture of the interesting facial expressions of the visitors. This is just so natural and real life. i like the treatment of the lighting in the background environment.

    Beautiful approach - I feel the chill from the snow but the hints of the red background peeking through provide a lovely, warm contrast that's so inviting.

    Fun and very well done.

    Fantastic light!


    This is a beautiful portrait. For this viewer that lovely face reflects innocence and purity, although that is perhaps not what the artist intended. Great skill is demonstrated with all the elements of this piece - particularly the textures of the hair and the cap. Overall it is an outstanding image.
