Thanks to Faestock, Zigabooooo, gd08 and emilyemilybeth (www.estherandemily.org).

At first my idea was to create a kind of scene "where the girl passed, everything seemed to be 'devoured' by the darkness of night and in the snow" behind her.
A personal friend saw this work, liked the idea, and said "could have snow falling in front of the girl, too", so I was with this in mind and decided to add to the work! I hope have gotten more interesting with the snow. Thank you! (5 years and 1859 days ago)

Too much empty space on the sides, which lessens the impact of your subject. I would suggest cropping off the empty space and making your subject occupy more of your picture plane.

author says:

Thank you for your comment Mossy, but if I cut the sides, my work will flee the proposal is that it look like she is walking on a street. If I cut, the houses will disappear and she would be in a 'somewhere' without definition.

I understand your point of view, but the work is to be seen as "a scene" and not just the model itself.

Once, thank you for your observation!!

MossyB says:

The black framing around your image already has destroyed any "scene" you may have attempted, by removing the viewer from the area. While I can appreciate your desire to create an environment, the fact that the snow basically stops where the houses begin already places her "somewhere" that is not connected to the background. Judicious cropping of the excess darkness - even if only to the edges of the window frames, approximately 1/3 of the way in, would give your subject much more dominance in the image, and minimize the awkward juxtoposition of the snowy street with unsnowy buildings on either side, even if you retain the black framing.

Thank you so much, Mossy.

The framing of the image should be vertical rather than horizontal, and to me there is nothing chaotic about a night scene with a gentle snow fall.

author says:

Thank you so much, CMYK, you're right, the title FAIL, I changed.
