    You have a way of framing and composing your shots and they look good. If I may comment, try to give more detail (by adding some sharpness to it maybe) and texture on your main subject to bring it to life compared to the background. I like #1 and #5 among these. I just wished that you made the woman on image #1 brighter and the background a bit darker to reverse the emphasis. Thanks for sharing your work.

    That's a very good series of images. And, by the way, it's good to see you back after such a long absence.

    I would take a different view (which is what always make photography interesting). Perhaps a bit more detail on the woman's face just so that we can see some facial features, would further improve the image. But I do think it is an impressive picture. I am also very impressed by 'Waterfall'. I think you have processed that very well.

    Thanks for your comments, in #1 I increased the contrast into highest as I can, the woman seems to be flatten, her face was too dark, I think I'll try recover her face. In fact, I tried to keep viewer eyes focusing on her shape and her accessories.

    I think #1 is very good. I find myself staring at her face even though she doesn't have one! Or maybe it's her hat? Is that a woman or a man? I think the photo has plenty of detail in the things she is carrying to keep you occupied, and enough shadow to make you wonder what you're missing.

    Souvenir Woman-Timeless depiction
    Flowers-a bit blurry but very colorful
    Waterfall-who doesn't love a waterfall.

    I have a second photo of this woman, when she's selling her goods. Trying to create an opposition in my photo

    Excellent image.

    You do not have her face, but you have beautifully captured the face of the man in the car.

    The saying that, 'A picture speaks a thousand words', applies to this image.

    Congratulations.
