Photographer's Note

When visiting some of the tribal village, the older kids will come around to tourist wanting to pose for pictures, because it is now a business, we take their pictures and pay them which is a really a fair deal, actually it is good deal for us. You don't have to guess if they mind or not, you just have to pay them for each picture and it was really a small amount of money for us. 25 cents. The problem become that they don't leave you alone, every time you pick up the camera, they run in front of you.

In this case I had to chase everyone else out, because I want to take a photo of this boy alone. He was so shy and smaller than others. He looks just sad, the face so dirty, and he has only one shoe. I just wanted to give him a couple of 25 cents that he so wanted and most of all I wanted to see a little happiness in him, maybe there is a little bit of it in the WS. He seem a bit more confident even with just one shoe, he looks more proud. The white paste is a face painting that is the tradition of the tribe.

The sharpness looks better in the beta version, why?
