outdoor portrait showing textures and  good composition

Outdoor Portrait

I always find this kind of mixture of textures appealing, the flaking walls make a superb background. In fact I have used this particular ruin a number of times.

The lighting is perhaps a little flat for my taste I would have preferred to see a little back lighting over her shoulder but, on that day, it was not to be.

I love the pose and the way it forms a lovely triangular shape. I also really like the color palette, I always think a picture works best if all of the colors come from one part of the spectrum.
