Nice shot. The moment you captured is just right. Authentic. Might want to crop a little tighter, and even consider a horizontal composition. Definitely would take out the black/white tile and steel shutter on left. Takes away from the timeless quality and muted tones of rest of image.

While I like the lines in this picture and have looked at it a number of times, I just can't pull myself away from thinking she's on the crapper. Besides that I think it's a great shot. :) I just can't get over that. So, a :) for Composition but a :\ for Content

i really like shots like this where you really feel it was a candid... i think that the only real improvement here would be to crop from the bottom, it'd help get the woman out of the center. love those muted colors.

hehe i like this one! and i can imagine the situation, you are walking, you notice her, you tell yourself, i need to get this pic, you get ready and shoot before she had time to realize there was a camera pointing at her....
the colors are very harmonious, those oldish green, dark red and pale yellow... and she is just fabulous: her pose, her hand, her foot, her dropped lenses... the light is just right. minor crop on the left is needed...
