I like the idea here, but think your friend is a bit lost here. If you had posed her in front of the window, she would stand out more. Our eyes are attracted to contrast and there simply isn't enough contrast between the subject and surroundings for her to be the center of interest.

When posting on the forum, you might want to consider sizing the image so viewers do not have to scroll to see the entire frame.

Thank you for sharing.

Exactly she is lost, she is not supposed to be the main subject here. Thank you for the comments always appreciated.

Gemini,

I think this is a good shot and your subject is "lost" in the shot as you mentioned.

Personally, I'd enjoy a similar shot from a different angle - perhaps camera @ the floor level, tilted with less focus on the seat-cushion of the chair.

Just my two cents ...

Joey

Thank You Joey,

Yes she is lost this falls under Conceptual


Photography where the identifiable subject is not the primary emphasis of the work, but rather the cryptic or interpretive meaning found in the composition of the photo.
