Fantastic image, full of contrast, complimentary lines and colour, perspective, intrigue....it has it all for me. On a personal note, look at those magnificent legs!! and high heels....so beautifull against the grey hard concrete.... GMV.

I keep browsing through your galleries... -- and each time I do, I find another gem like this....
For me, the cropped taxi is what makes it, as much as her obvious haste... (V)

The overall composition is perfect. The black of her suit and her cab providing an excellent foil for the massiveness of the imposing city buildings where she is about to work her charm.

me encanta esta foto, su composicion, sus tonalidades grises y como la mujer irrumpe en la foto para ser el centro de atención en medio de todas esas lineas.
¿tuviste que esperar mucho tiempo hasta que apareció la mujer?

awesome shots niall.
the main one is simply great a modern woman in a retro world (architecture/car....) with a mobile phone. :)

Like this one a lot, though my money says she was heading into the Royal Exchange for some serious shopping or a hot lunch date! The balance of elements between the woman and the taxi is excellent.

Nice shot...cold tones but her beautiful legs and hair. The framing is perfect too.

I like the way she seems to be checking her nail varnish. Oh... and we have Hackneys in Dundee - but ours are silver!

Seems to have trouble navigating the 'mobile' and the concrete in her high heels. Points for the legs and the business black, however. :)

Well that ruined a perfectly intriguing story.. :B

jude, I should say, anyone who knows London will recognise the vehicle as the ubiqitous black taxi, the one she just stepped out of. :)

Oustanding candid. The elements are spare and stylish.

Her on the phone as she runs up the stairs to wherever.. busy lives .. i can almost hear her talking in a crisp, business-like voice. Maybe a bit of annoyance at the guy on the other end of the phone unable to be as efficient as she.

But the bit of car showing over to the side gives it an air of mystery.. of intrigue and maybe some kind of stalking/surveillance story.. perfect
