From where I stood at Siena’s Piazza del Campo I spotted this striking woman up in a window of one of the medieval buildings skirting the square. Her expression spoke of someone caught up in an inner drama. When she turned her head from all that was happening below, I just had to take this picture.

    My impression is that it has a spirtual quality of an old soul trapped in a young woman's body trying to hide her thoughts into the void of an abyss..Great entry, Deborah!

    Beautifully composed! I love the dark negative space with this lovely woman in the lower right quadrant. It gives an aura of loneliness. Her expression seems to be one of worry or concern. Fabulous capture, Deb!

    Dear Deb....I love how you have 75% of the background in darkness, reflecting the inner turmoil of the woman. Her thoughts are shown so clearly, and which you have captured so very well. It seems to be a feeling of resignment. Excellent capture.
