Great angle and tones, and I love the swing of the coat cool capture.
Kathryn: Many thanks, Tracy. The wind was usual.

...she walks away despite her promise,
leaves painful void in someone's soul...
Kathryn: makes you wonder why she'd go....

Potently dramatic...I imagine a brisk striding away, as though the parting was not a happy one. Love the flapping coat-tail.
Kathryn: Thank you, Ray...reminds me of the same.
Too many potential stories for this ... Paradoxically it might just be a hurried walk to get to work on time ... who knows? Whatever it is it's a great capture. richard.
Kathryn: Thanks R, Glad you enjoy it.

Aren't we finding that we all have such great imaginations here on SC! smile I love it, Kathryn.
Kathryn: Yes we do, don't we. Glad you like it, Ginnie.
Very cinematic, reinforced by the wide format of your crop.
Kathryn: Thanks, M. Trying a few new things again.
superb image Kathryn as allways, looks great in b&w.....tim
Kathryn: Tim, you flatter me and your confidence in me inspires me to continue. Thanks for that.

Perfect, very well captured Kathryn, I think everybody is having a great time on SC tongue
Kathryn: Thanks, Astrid. Yes I think we are, aren't we?
This is a beautifully framed shot full of movement and soft tones. Very lovely.
Kathryn: Thank you, Gail. I was wondering about the softening around the edges and wondered if they distracted from the shot.
Very nice crop Katrhyn. I like the movement and the tones
Kathryn: Thanks, Richard. Nice to hear you like it.
You have got an excellent eye Kathryn, this is really good!
Kathryn: Nigel, thanks... when my kids were younger, they hated the fact that I have an eagle eye and am very visually aware!

Glad you like it.

This is a good idea! Did it involve rolling around in the mud?
Kathryn: smile Martin...I was uphill from her, but having hard to roll around in the mud makes a more interesting story.

It looks just like a scene from a French film noir. Great stuff Kathryn!

Got to be a likey. Can't you just imagine this on a billboard advertising an expensive cosmetic or something of the like?
Kathryn: Thanks much, Bill! Glad you like it!

You fooled me today with your great image. I thought it was a done with shutterspeed and a tripod! Nicely done.

everything you've done, Kathryn (the tone, the crop, the motion blur) heightens ones involvement with the subject.. to the point where one loses objectivity and the i, more than momentarily, becomes you. this suspension of disbelief, i believe, is the ultimate achievement of the artist. lovely work, Kathryn.
Kathryn: Terry, I think it is not something I alone have done, I think that you and I are partners in the process.

Thank you for your thoughts. They inspire me to press on.
Very good idea. I like this and Likey for me, too! smile
Kathryn: Honored and I am glad you like it so much.
Enigmatic & narrative, Kathryn.
It looks like she was in a hurry love the blurr of the coat
