This one seems sharper and in clearer focus, DrAW, so whatever you did made magic.

You've certainly improved your processing skills since then! Good range of tones. This has such a forlorn atmosphere about it. I like the touch of colour to draw attention to the woman's back.

Uhmmm...definitely much better than the first attempt smile
Always interesting to go back to old fav shots and process them again with the new knowledge we've acquired.
DrAW!: thanks bro smile
I certainly remember this one. It goes without saying that this PP is better. I also noticed that her shirt has changed its colour
DrAW!: yes i reworked the image for a theme 'the unbreakable nigerian spirit' or something like that
