This attractive ferry rider had a real sense of style as we ferried back from Martha's Vineyard. Don't know if she was a real celebrity, except maybe in her own mind. She was lovely, regardless, and her straw hat added just the right touch of fashionable whimsy to an otherwise long end of day boat ride. If only that blurry person on the right bottom corner had stayed still and out of my line of vision for just a minute longer...

I like the feeling of action and location here. The backlighting is great and the blurry shapes to the side give a sense of immediacy - it all adds up to a very artistic effect. Nice shot!

Understand your frustration with the dude (dudette?) who moved into your view. Shame, would have been a fine pic. Thanks for having the guts to post anyway.

Laurie from New Jersey, United States

She definitely has an air about her. I love the light on her.

Chris from South Jersey, United States

I really like this shot, and the obstruction in the foreground doesn't really bug me at all. I do think that if you had captured her elbow it would have improved the shot....
The lighting is really nice....

I agree, really stylish! Actually the blurry head makes it even more interesting for me!
P.S.: I'll be absent for the next two weeks, but Gilles M., Gilles D. and Alain B. will continue to visit your blog and answer your comments on our blog. Going on a quick trip to Turkey, wishing you and Bella and of course your whole tribe all the best till then.

@Wolfgang - vu@granby: Wow, I hope you get some good photos while in Turkey. Be safe, and thanks for the kind words.

Craig from Vacaville, California, United States

I would like to suggest a new camera accessory. A warning alarm (like a back up alarm on a garbage truck) that warns people you are about to take a shot so they can get out of the way!!! LOL :0) Cool shot despite the intruder!!!

Hey VF, I actually quite like the blur int he right corner, it makes your title more authentic, like you were really snapping a celebrity amongst the crowd, she does have a certain allure. This shot has beautiful light and compo VF!! Awesome work.
