    ditto Lo, but I'd add, a lot higher. This is a beautiful work.

    I can't believe this didn't place higher Bill. It's a wonderful shot.

    Love the tone here. Gives an added hint of nostalgia to a time-worn skill.

    I find this photo very interesting because of the subject matter. I think I would have liked to see it it color, because in my imagination, the cloth seems to be to be very colorful.

    I love the detail and activity in the main figure. I would suggest cropping the right side of the photo to get rid of the window completely, it doesn't add anything to the picture. With it gone, the muted tones you have chosen might work a lot better.

    Well-done. The finished baskets add nicely to telling the "story." A slightly tighter crop would focus more attention on the hands. I find the distorted window a bit distracting, but some perspective correction could fix that.

    Nice environmental portrait. Would love to see her face brighten up a bit.

    I like the fact that you have chosen a monochrome finish. I'm sure the baskets and bags would have provided a riot of colour, but the soft champagne colour really underlines the focus and serenity of this woman's face. Wonderful composition and detail.

    This photo keeps tugging me back. I love the serenity of it amid the obvious poverty. The colour is perfect. My only distraction is the window bars at the side. I might have cloned that out or cropped to the edge of the window. High in my favourites.

    Beautifully elegant and personal...all the way to the great toning in this near-monochrome. I knew right away this was at the top of my list.

    Beautiful light on her face and hands. I just love the patterned baskets and the wonderful textured wall in the background. Congratulations on a superb photograph.

    Great subject. I think you could add a bit more contrast, it looks slightly washed out.
