For me the mark of a good portrait is when you feel that you know the person. This one accomplished that nicely. I love the eyes, the expression, and the plain background. Even the chair detail adds to the effect.

I might rotate it slightly. I'm guessing she was leaning in real-life, but it looks crooked to the viewer without whole scene.

Right! Don't rotate it. Don't crop it. Don't clone it. Don't "edit" it. It's fine.

I was walking the streets of a small hamlet , on the border of Holland/Belgium  -- and I saw this sweet elderly lady in a chair,  through the front window.....

A walked  past a few steps and noticed her door was slightly open // I peered in and waved.  She was frozen in her chair but eventually produced a  smile.  I mainly said hello in Dutch and just kept reading her body language . Her defenses seemed to be mellowing > so I stepped inside.

  Sat my tripod down a few feet into the parlor & had a portrait lens mounted .  Took out my meter and set my exposure --- 5.6 @ 1/8th.  Packed up and waved good bye. As always do ... I jotted down the address and sent a photo to the Mayor of the town ...received a wonderful translated letter back from her son > thanking me kindly for this wonder image of his mother  //\\
