I agree with Charles-Louis.I like the 1st one better.

Thank you Stuart for your feedback. I had my doubts. Which image was stronger? Merci.

Carl.

Wonderful Carl! Number one is really very special. It tells a story, there is so much for for an interpretation.

Thank you benqui for your feedback. I will make a print of the first one.

Regards. Carl

I'm in agreement about the first one being the strongest. It's a remarkable image.

If it was mine, I would likely have cropped out the window on the right and used the window the woman is standing by to frame her. But that's just me. I can see why you'd want to leave it in considering that it's the space that shows the sea.

Hi Brent. Thank you for giving your point of view. I am still thinking of this and not sure quite what to answer. I'll get back to you on that...Regards. Carl

Carl,

Personally, I would not crop the window on the right because it adds balance to the composition and context.  As others have said, it's a superb picture.

I would add that Brent's suggestion to crop the right window produces a second excellent picture in its own right but with a different emotion attached to it.  When I block the window with my hand it suggests that the woman is contemplating or struggling with something mentally, which of course causes the viewer to wonder "What?" and builds a narrative.

Pete.

I like the first one very much, no changes needed. Great moment you captured.

Just to clarify, I never said change was needed. I love the photo as it is. What I said is that if it was my photo, which it isn't, I would probably crop the front window.
