Lovely portrait, the scene could use more sky details ie more clouds to make 
it a real keeper IMHO.

I spent the past three weeks in my tiny hometown 30 miles east of 
Albuquerque, NM, visiting family and friends as well as playing tourist in 
the one horse village I grew up in.
Most were shot on Efke 100 and 400 speed films.  I love this emulsion paired 
with my old Leica lenses.  I did expose a roll of Ilford 3200 on Christmas 
Eve while walking amongst the luminaria.
Little sister's 19th birthday.  M4, Summicron DR @ f/2, Efke 400
Looking north off of state highway 472.  M4, Summaron 35mm f/3.5 @ f/8, Efke 
Same shot with more sky.  I love the natural falloff of the Summaron.
