Three women waiting

This was shot yesterday in front of the historic May Company Department Store in the Wilshire District of Los Angeles.

I used a 300 mm lens to isolate the women.

    Terrific shot!!!
    The expressions are unique and the frame is somehow divided into four different pieces according light.
    Lovely work, Jim

    You're correct that the focus is on the bench but the blur is because the women were all moving. The woman at the center had just (and I mean just) sat down and had not settled herself. Her presence disturbed the others and they were making room for her.

    a really nice capture, though it looks like the focus is on the bench and not on the ladies. tones and contrasts are good.
