Hi Prabir.

She looks okay to me, just full of days, so to speak.  Wouldn't it be wonderful if the wisdom that has accumulated in a person like her could be kept in its entirety after her passing on?  How much precious knowledge has been lost as our seniors have left us? 

Nice, soft light.  She looks to be at peace with it all.  May she have many happy days yet.

Happy Day.

:)

Some say that those of us who like to talk about cameras should instead go and take pictures. I say we should go and also take pictures.

You are right Henry. Wisdom of the older people is always valuable. But the new world gives little value to that.

Prabir,

I meant to comment on the colors.  I find it interesting how that the blueish and purplish colors seem to harmonize between the subject's clothing and the background.  Maybe because of all this my mind wants to see that there is a hint of magenta in the skintone of your subject.  I like how the DOF pushes the background into submission and allows the subject to "pop" out of the field of bright colors.

I would bet that dear lady has some interesting stories about life to tell.

Happy day.

:)

Henry, thank you very much for your observations.

I find it quite amazing the way you understand what the image maker had in mind while making the image. You were precise in this image. I had to wait for about 15 minutes to get the angle, BG and her position before I raised the camera. I had to take only 2 shots after that to get what I wanted. I was mesmerized by her face. So many stories are there in the wrinkles of her face.
