    She seems very deep in thought as she sits there waiting...Beautifully captured and I love especially that you caught the moment and she is not posing for the camera.

    She is deep in her thoughts of checking her cell phone messages and probably never knew that you took this candid of her. Excellent entry !!!

    Just out of curiosity, the woman in this shot, is she some one that you know personally? If not, does she know shes being photographed? My only complain about the image is the area around the archway is too bright, which causes a little struggle between your subject and the background. Otherwise, I like the shot, she is aesthetically pleasing, the directional light, and the angle of the shot. Well done!!

    As far as I know, she was not aware that I took her photo. It was a quick snapshot as I entered the church. That is why it isn't very well balanced. I have no idea who she is.
