I wonder what this pic would look like with a little added color painted in. Most hippies I know where some colorful ensembles.

My attention keeps getting drawn to the water bottle on the table, as it is the brightest element in the image. The bottle also disects the guy in the background who also detracts from the main subject.

I also think color may look better when trying to portray a hippy, as they are known for bright colorful outfits.

Interesting photo

Perhaps, tho, there a bit too much clutter around the background.

Perhaps a tighter crop of subject could be done?

Also, the hippy girl smokes (I think).

It would be interesting to learn her bio tho'...she seems to have

a regal beauty about her yet seem to do everything she can to

minimalize it.

Yah, the photo is too busy.

Better to have made the shot in a different surrounding (if possible).
