This jumped out at me immediately as some picture you might see of an old actress in her glory days.
What I love about this picture is the soft and perfect color tone and the smoothness of her skin in comparison to the wild look and textures of her shirt, hair, and hat. She looks strong and hopeful, but at the same time, you can see a certain sadness in her eyes.
I think this picture tells a story that could mean many things to many people and as such, has a common appeal while still being something special for more serious photography enthusiasts. Job well done!
