Along the west bank of the Willamette River, No. 5





Surely someone is taking her photo, other than me. Surely. In this perspective, sunshine and shadow treated her just right. I think her red hair peeking out from the brim of her gray hat and catching the sunlight next to her cheek make this photo special. What do you think? I'm very curious to know your opinion. I took this photo at 6:21 p.m. on Friday, March 21. Right above her head, cherry blossoms. But, I'm happy that I zoomed in and got this photo.

Oh my! like a modern day photographic Renoir. Perfect shadings of light. Magnificent is what I think!

I like this photo. Captured her in a moment of reflection.

Nicely done. The backlighting is excellent. You could have even cropped it further, maybe putting the middle of the tree at the right edge.

A lovely series, Lynette!

The light is really great. Like she was waiting for you to take her portrait. Very nice, Lynette.

The light was perfect.

It's a beautiful portrait, but I feel it's sort of wrong to take someone's photo without their permission.
She reminds me of Lady Edith on Downton Abbey.
