    Can't really make out the ticket lady. Maybe the picture is too small.

    some things:

    1) are you the one feeling anxiety? because from her pose, it seems like she's just doing a cute pose. if you're saying that you're anxious, i don't feel it from the picture.

    2) she's too small in the image to make out clearly, or to give any feeling and emotion to the image as a whole

    3) nicely done, using the rows of chairs to lead the attention to her. but although intent is there, in this image she's too small to be of an impact to let the viewers feel that she makes you anxious...

    4) using color might be better... having this in black and white, the lady almost blends in with the background as she's too small compared to the chairs in the surroundings

    just my 2 cents

    Unique way to compose the picture. However, as mentioned by rest, the air stewardess is too small and I find the picture slightly overexposed.
    Anyway, keep shooting.

    I think what he meant is star burst filter.
    It's a filter that allows light source to look like stars which can be achieved too by stepping down your aperture.

    However i don't know from which part of your photo did he draw the conclusion that you're using a star burst filter though.

    since when a sentence ending with a question mark ever becomes a conclusion?

    Chill chill. Don't need to get so defensive.
    What i meant was why you're asking whether is he using a starburst filter as the photo doesn't have any effect of a starburst filter.

    chill chill all.. it's just overexposure and possibly reflection of light on the chairs that's causing what looks like a starburst effect. the metering was more on the back end of the carriage so the front portion's overexposed.
