Sharon said...

Such a wonderful image this makes. It looks like a pivotal scene from a movie.

Arija said...

A veritable painting . . . gentle colours and the white off-set by the orchids. A real conversation piece.

She looks like she is dressed for an elegant occasion.

Linda foto. De uma arte... fantástica!

Terrific capture as always, JM! You do get great "people" shots. Superb composition, makes you want to write a story to go with the scene! Enjoy your evening!

The lady seems so taken... I like the pose, the dress and the composition.

What a wonderful capture. She goes so nicely with the orchid.

TexWisGirl said...

beautiful how her dress matches the blooms. :)

A black lady in white...quite stunning. A beautiful portrait but much more than that. The accouterments -- the purse, the desk, the flowers, the bamboo, the books...all add so much interest. This would be worthy of showing in a gallery!

Someone just hit me about your new profile pic...I can't remember how to spell the place where you took this but we have a friend who's in her mid-70s who visited there about a year ago and climbed up the entire way. Quite an experience. She's a runner, though, and did some training before she left for Peru.

You definitely caught something here, JM. Everything put together in a pensive mood ... I too could see this shot in a gallery ...

Incredibly elegant photo JM!

Kay said...

This is an outstanding shot - the effect is like a still life, yet with a person, making it all the more interesting. It's very peaceful. Well done!

Your profile shot is Machu Picchu, isn't it?

Shaun_ShutterBug said...

it always makes you wonder "hmmm, what is she reading"
Excellent capture

@Kay: Yes, it is Machu Picchu! :-)

Halcyon said...

I like the new header on your blog. She looks very interested in whatever is on that table. The white dress looks good on her too.

Lovely picture. It's got such a variety of subject matter in a small space but doesn't feel crowded.

Randy said...

That's lovely.

Lovely composition. Bet this hotel is too expensive for me. haha.

Nita said...

Belíssimo!

PerthDailyPhoto said...

I agree with above JM, a very elegant image in creams, brown and white, lovely!

Kate said...

This is an exquisite portrait.

Jack said...

Perfect, JM. I love the subdued color palette and the artful composition.

Kathy said...

This is a great shot, Jose.
