Hi Ben. Surreal as if it was an editing,though I think it is very natural,as shot. very fine and expressive.
Great composition, perfect!
But I would erase the thing above her head, on the left! It takes the viewers attention until he recognizes what is it (Some fence I suppose).
this is a very interesting image to me...
she is displaced by her dress, coloration and preoccupation with the flower she is holding? unaware of the "modern" decay which surrounds her...
the lines of perspective are helpful in sending us to her and also some possible allegorical message in also indicating the door beyond...
the normal coloration of the walls and outside trees and leaves, further juxtapose her weathered ghostly coloration.
the dark negative space at the fore also helps us to remain fixed on her.
i like this image... for it's many possibilities

Very effective capture! I love the angle of camera to subject which is wonderful here, and also the color channel and mood you artfully used here. Great picture. Bravo.
@Pierre: indeed thanks for the advise, I will correct it:-)
I find this very interesting. A lot going on when you really take a second to look. Your mind tries to fill in the blanks about why she is there and what is this place. A story in a photograph keeps me interested.
Exceptional work, I love the processing. Congratulations. Vicente.
It's always so interesting see your work. Every time something new, something inspiring. We watch, we learn, we try.
Thanks for viewing and comments:-)
very strong..emotional work from you..
and 7 of course..
you are a man of extroudinarier talent!
Again absolutely Amazing !
dear Ben wonderful image
This is rather intriguing and I really like the statuesque implication of freezing something in still frame that is so much more, and has a story to tell.
I tend to like your photography more when it is a little more subtle, like THIS one. My mind is wandering all over the place - as is my eye. Lots of motion and emotion. Great image.
I do agree with an above poster about removing the thing poking into her head.
