For sure, I wasn't the first foreigner in that pygmy town but that look doesn't lies: I'm schemer for these young girls, living deep inside the African savannah, far from the white (and quite rare) visitors.
Imagine their funny reaction when they've seen their photo through the digital camera...! Yes, I was an alien!

very nice photo of these young girls. I like the colours and the green background too. Both of them have a nice smile and the third girl really look at you like an martian man. Good job, thanks.

Very beutiful shot of innocence... you captured their curiosity and beauty really well. I wish I could see whom the little left leg belongs to, but that is not a problem, just my own curiosity ;-)

Excellent portrait de groupe. Couleurs tres riches, juste assez de bokeh vers le fond vert.
Rien a redire. Nerci. Francis

Great composition. Great colours. the image is very sharp, but the two furtherst girls semm to be aout of focus. Especially the small girls attracts immediate attention, it would be nice if the was as sharp as the closest one.

nice photo but not so nice caption and story.... you made those african "alien".. How there you, im not african but I was hurt, you discriminate them.... you are only a foreigner in their country, you have to respect them and be thatnkful to them because they gave you a good picture...
think about it!!!!

Great picture of vibrant young pygmy girls!
Don't think I will ever be able to go there in my life. So, thanks for sharing.

Hi Yves, nice composition and excellent control of your DOF. A really natural and interesting capture. I'm just sad that all I can see of the baby is the foot. :)
Thanks for sharing!

This is a true beautiful photo of some truely beautiful people. Well captured. The indigenous people are certainly looking at you like you are an alien aren't they. The photo is so clear. Thanks for sharing.
