    Default Malay Girl

    Hi,
    I took this picture at a jetty, while I was waiting for ferry. I noticed that the right hand side Malay girl has a pair of very pretty eyes, so I waited quite a while for them to turn their heads towards me.



    I've done some post-processing, by reducing the colour and put emphasise on the right girl.
    Do give me comments and the arrangement and how do you feel about the picture.
    Thanks all!

    Not a good choice of selective colouring i feel. the girl on the left is still very distracting. my suggestion would be to do a portrait crop of the girl on the right, give her a portrait framing solely to herself.

    otherwise is to leave both girls in bw as a street capture.

    the crop didn't work here for me.

    lastly, the girl's eyes are really beautiful, must congrats you on a good catch!

    think the composition and framing is not really balanced. lack focus from my point of view as the structure at the back and the girl at the left seems distracting. agree with cropping to portrait to focus on girl on the right.
