Gorgeous image, a real masterpiece of colours, shadows, light and composition! Even the expression of the lady is so captivating, and also her hands and the smoke from the pan,

A super shot Stuart!

Many thanks Man in the Maze. It was almost perfect lighting in that old dark room...just enough to highlight the table and cook, but no more. All I had to do was get the composition right! Regards Stuart

The Man in the Maze™ on January 3, 2013

yes, agree, just enough to see the old pastel colours of her hat and clothe - I love this pic!
