Photographer's Note

This pic is dedicated to Torben (don't know where he's been lately though). His pics showed me that you don't have to compose a subject fully in the frame to be effective. When I saw this scene at the KingsGate Mall, I thought of his work before I snapped the pic, so thanks buddy!

I was outside looking over pics I had shot earlier when this girl came out, looked at the rain, pulled out her cell, and leaned against the wall on her right (just out of frame) and made a call. I noticed the window, and the man inside looking out in the same direction as she, and I knew there was a pic to be had. I was amazed by the fact she didnt care I was pointing a camera in her direction from less than 2.5 metres away!

Anyways, I happen to really like this pic. I mean I think it's really a good pic. I hope I'm not deluding myself! Please feel free to share your honest opinions. I don't mind if you have something critical to say.

Post-pro:levels, curves, sharpening (oh, and that sign on the bottom was originally a blazingly bright yellow. I thought that much too distracting and as I couldn't crop it without cropping her hand, I selected it and played with its Hue, Brightness and Saturation until it was less noticeable).
