This enigmatic portrait has a quality to it that is reminiscent of a scene from a movie. The shallow depth of field nicely blurs out any distracting foreground or background and sharply focuses on the model’s face. The slightly unusual thing about this portrait is the pattern of shadows from the fence covers the model, which adds an interesting and slightly mysterious element to the portrait.
