Nice spot for a rest. Friend of yours?
Richard Standley: I don't know her Daroru. Thank you.
Such a beautiful garden - looks like a wonderful area to reflect, and at the moment she is reflecting on the photographer!
Richard Standley: Many thanks Kevin. I don't think she noticed me!

Wonderful capture and angle of view.
Richard Standley: Many thanks Kay.
Belle photo avec le cadrage serré, mais je trouve que le titre ne marche pas...
Richard Standley: Merci Wolfgang. Le titre s'applique surtout à la personne âgée en arrière plan.
The composition is absolutely perfect and having the out of focus on-looker is priceless.
Richard Standley: Many thanks Michael.
Solitude? Cette dame n'est pas seule parce que tu prends sa photo. En plus elle a un joli sac rouge qui me plait beaucoup.
Bon mercredi, Richard.
Richard Standley: Le titre s'applique surtout à la personne âgée en arrière plan. Merci Eva.

I like the natural pose and light of your subject. Wonderful DOF and background of the well manicured gardens. The person looking from the distance is a nice addition.
Great photography Richard.

Great image, Richard, with all that exotic background, and the somewhat bemused expression on your model.

Jolie photo, composition agréable. On voit le soleil sans sentir sa brulure.
Mais le titre m'étonne smile)
Je peux te parler de solitude smile)) Ici, je ne la sens pas. J'en vois plus sur la dame derrière que sur le sujet principal
ça reste une jolie photo
Richard Standley: Merci Jendayee. Le titre s'applique surtout à la personne âgée en arrière plan.
désolée de ne pas être passé hier, mais mon PC m'a brusquement lâché à 18h00 donc là je suis dans un cyber espace. j'espère que les réparations ne vont pas être trop longue. Je vais continuer à publier et à venir voir mes sites préférés en ettendant de récuperer mon BB

Richard Standley: Aye, ça c'est la mega tuile! J'espère que tu vas le récupérer le plus tôt possible. Bises

Une sensation, savoir qu'il y a quelqu'un quelquechose qui nous regarde, c'est l'expression de cette photo, c'est magnifique!

Nice portrait. Is this next to a maze?
Richard Standley: Many thanks AC. What you see in the background is part of Vaux le Vicomte castle's gardens (http://standley.shutterchance.com/photoblog/10%A3!;slash%A3!;14_/)

If I was the lady there, this'd be my best picture in my personal photo album. Great capture, Richard:p
Richard Standley: Very kind of you Kavita. Many thanks.
Beautiful background - is this taken at the same place as the castle series?
Richard Standley: Yes this was shot at Vaux le Vicomte castle Aksel. Thanks.
A good title and image. The harsh sun work well here.
Richard Standley: Many thanks Scarabaeus.
A great shot and lovely reflective expression Richard. I'm going to be picky and suggest that the area above the top of the post be cropped out ... I think the best of the maze is below that point and the area above is a distraction from the protagonist. cheers richard
Richard Standley: Many thanks Richard. I followed your suggestion by scrolling on the screen and you're right Richard, the image is perfectly balanced with your crop! Thanks again for the advice. Cheers. Richard
Très joli portrait, Richard.
Je te complimente aussi pour le précédent : j'ai un faible !
Bien vue.
Richard Standley: Merci beaucoup Fabrice.
Je sais que je vais te décevoir de nouveau, mais je n'ai toujours pas trouvé la solution au jeu des 7 erreurs!
Nice capture Richard. Alone with your own thoughts in a public place...that is real solitude
Richard Standley: Many thanks Bill.

Pourquoi le monsieur tourne le dos à la vieille dame ????
Bisous et je te souhaite une bonne nuit
Richard Standley: Pas sympa le monsieur! Merci Corinne.
Bonne nuit à toi. Bisous
Une photo qui raconte une histoire avec cette personne nette en 1er plan et le fond flou qui comprend d'autres personnes... Le jardin a l'air magnifique.
Richard Standley: Merci Olivier. Ce sont les jardins du châteaux de Vaux le Vicomte.
Sorry I haven't visited for awhile. Beautiful image. Looks like a wonderful place to sit and be with one's own thoughts.
Richard Standley: Many thanks for your visit and your kind comment Melissa.

The background of the garden draws my eye deeper into the image because it is so amazing. As many have said - a good place to be with one's thoughts.
Richard Standley: Many thanks Daina. This is the garden of Vaux le Vicomte castle.

Another nice one, Richard. Must have been around noon - don't see many shadows! I really like the expression on the lady's face too.
Richard Standley: Many thanks Martie.I shot it early in the afternoon.
belle photo, dans un bel endroit.

Lovely picture, Richard. Like the background pattern and I like the red design on the lovely lady's purse. Great mood picture, nice work.

Bonito enfoque de la mujer , y , sin embargo me da la sensación que el jardin le roba protaganismo a la señora.
O son mis gafas?. seguro.
