This is something a little different for me.

Basically, I was sitting in my car, getting ready to go inside from a Loooonnng day at work, when I saw this lady lugging her backpack along the street, and decided to just snap the shot....but I actually like it :-)

I did a "dark" edit on this photograph to Express her mood as I saw it.

I would like to know how you all feel about it as well ;-)

    Here is my analysis. It is interesting with the umbrella (provides a gloomy feeling) and the placement of the subject with with less forward looking space (sometimes called look room. This give is a negative feeling of negative space). The bag implies she is leaving (another negative feeling). The subjects head may be tilted down. It has the gloomy day feeling without the dark clouds. In addition there is the contrast with the idea of the white picket fence.

    Thank you for that break down AF. Your words basically verify the Communicated mood, as she looked VERY tired, and VERY worn down after her day.

    A common scene you can see in almost any town in the US, captured in such a way as to make it remarkable. The lady appears more than tired, fatigued is more like it. This mood is in direct contrast to the cheerful surroundings ; the white picket fence, the pleasing color of the house, the sunshine and beautiful shadows. Eloquent capture. Great observation, Ahmed.

    Everyone above gave such excellent comments and I can only mirror them. This photo can be very thought provoking and tell many different versions. It can also look like I can look at times, coming up my driveway lugging something behind me. One of my neighbors said that I am always heading out the door or back in pulling some kind of gear with me and when I am coming back in I am exhausted. You did an excellent job of editing it to portray the mood that you saw in her.
