Cool image...wonder what F length you used for this shot, but the fast shutter speed froze her walk
The red crates of Coke create a good BG...She has got a very 'cool' look on her face as she holds the cigarette in the corner of her mouth

Hi my dear Hisashi-san
Ninello52 (7576) 2011-02-20 4:18
Bella questa immagine! Mi piace la composizione con quelle casse rosse fra la ragazza ed il verde della vegetazione in alto! Divertente l'atteggiamento spavaldo della ragazza con la sigaretta in bocca!

a very beautiful portrait this young lady . A very good sharpness, colors, contrast, exposure. I like the crisp on the foreground and the blur on the backdrop.
The expression on her face with the cigarete come out a very nice.
All the best and have a nice Sunday,

Cette jeune femme a beaucoup d'allure dans ce décor de bar en plein air. J'aime les couleurs et l'ambiance de ce pays chaud.

I LIKE THE PHOTO. THE COCA COLA CRATES BEHIND HER... AND HER STEPS..
wolf38 (31296) 2011-02-20 9:43
Hi Hisashi. African Lady with a cigarette in his mouth and boxes for Coke and other drinks. What a beautiful contrast. No matter where we go, Coke is already there. A wonderful beard photo. You captured the beautiful scene perfectly with your camera. Rgds, Wolfgang.
Pendragon (327) 2011-02-20 10:35
I like the way you seemed to surprise her in her everyday job. She has such a look... Beautiful rich colours ! The contrast between the blurred background and the sharp foreground shows her off to advantage.
Budapestman (82620) 2011-02-20 14:06

nikkitta (17068) 2011-02-20 17:31
A daily lice captured with excellent mix of colors red for Coca Cola ( obvious) green for the plants and all the rest brown
Like the regard of the woman, was she a bit angry or only surprised ?
sevy (58) 2011-02-21 0:05
Nice portrait in movement. I like the direct look and the great presence of the woman. Moreover you got the graphic color impact of the red boxes.
Nicou (150058) 2011-02-21 1:06
génaile compo, quelle position a ce personnage devant ces caisettes rouge, supebe scène et cpatage, amngigique.

Walking and standing like a queen
Excellent situation where the red of coca boxes affords a very good colorful BG
chandrapranil (1087) 2011-02-21 2:56
What a wonderful image - your timing was spot on in this shot. I particularly like your DOF - it keeps your subject the highlight and its immediate surroundings.
Her walk, her stare and the colours are perfectly displayed.
Thank you for sharing
csabagaba (6636) 2011-02-21 4:16
The Coca-Cola all over :-)
And of course the Amstel beer. That would be the globalization?
Well-developed photo, with soft edges and subtle contrasts. Very good picture quality. The blurred background highlights the contrast in the foreground. The beautiful green-red-brown color contrast. She provides the necessary dynamism.
Unfortunately, my point is sold out, so just writing: 2 points.
Silvio1953 (151909) 2011-02-21 11:07
Ciao Hisashi, beautiful daily life composition with lovely walking woman, fantastic colors and splendid clarity, very well done my friend, ciao Silvio
leo61 (0) 2011-02-21 11:12
She looks soooo cool walking there,very selfconcisious with a cigarette or lolipop in her mouth.
Wonderful composition with these red containers and the tropical vegetation in the background.
Perfect POV and timing!!!!!
TRB (14134) 2011-02-21 11:52
With the timing of naturalness and a wonderful presentation. Colors, details and excellent exposure, and sharing with the image.

espressione ottimamente colta e perfetta definizione sulla ragazza.
Casse che esaltano il cromatismo dello sfondo,

Fantastic daily life moment from Gahna.
Beautiful girl in focus.
Nice contrast between crates of drinks and blured greenery in the background.
Sharpness and colors are superb.
ricardomattos (7865) 2011-02-21 15:48
Bela cena de fotojornalismo. Belas cores e nitidez e um belo desfoque do fundo para realçar a moça passando, bem capturada por você.
InasiaJones (31566) 2011-02-21 19:27
That's a great shot!
The red Coca Cola crates bring all the impact against this tropical green and serve as a perfect background for this lady in brown with an attitude.
Good light, excellent catch and nice shallow depth of field.
bergese (6699) 2011-02-22 3:33
Une belle image,bien colorée avec une magnifique presence "féline".Une netteté superbe.

Good work, Ivana

Excellent daily life scene with cigar Lady , excellent photo.
Sharpness and colors are superb.
DRamos (512) 2011-02-23 5:31
Very well framed and captured the moment, the main focus on the girl and the box is very precise, the definition is also very good.
A picture with vivid color and motion capture, the picture is very dynamic.
dip (23890) 2011-02-23 12:07
very nice capture of the young woman with the cigar,amazing colors and good light management as well!
Longroute (19396) 2011-02-23 12:29
This is a great photo IMO. Both for the beauty of the composition and the expression of the girl. The combination of colours is fantastic red/green and the light too.
magalik (6103) 2011-02-23 13:42
What a beautiful and rich shot... Not only you succeeded in finding an environment well colored but also you succeeded to catch an extraordinary attitude, at the same time very natural and arrogant. Really a great scene.
And when it's presented with a such quality, it's really a great pleasure to look at it.
macjake (71847) 2011-02-23 16:51
I can see why this photo is so popular for you, the walk, the attitude, the colors, the cigarette, the short hair cut, whats not to love about this!
your best yet from this trip!!
raszid62 (18515) 2011-02-23 23:58
Live well-known advertising company. But from what I heard just this company uses in his exploitation of slave factories, especially in third world countries. But, she beautiful and a very good portrait.
danos (102604) 2011-02-24 2:25
nice snapshot with the cigar to be hanged from her mouth as a bloke.I like her pose as the charmy glance with the Coca cola and the Amstel to be everywhere .Well done.
rodgerg (55767) 2011-02-24 10:11
A title very well selecetd for this excellent portrait with the attitude and too the glance of the young lady very well collected. Good managment of light too which give beautiful contrast and colors with the red of Coca Cola which arise very well.
korbee (6619) 2011-02-24 13:10
Wauw she looks very selfsure with that cigarette;],this could be a fine Coke commercial or amstel beer from my country ;]]
Your gallery is very surprising Hisashi.
vasilpro (41661) 2011-02-24 22:52
Wonderful daily life composition, lovely light and colors, excellent POV, very good timing, interesting scene, TFS!
CLODO (35616) 2011-02-25 4:03
She is cool and fierce between the Coca cola and amstel bottles. she spotted you, not sure she is pleased to be taken in picture!
sacavem (18620) 2011-02-25 7:10

lakshmip1949 (19081) 2011-02-26 4:11
I am attracted to your red color theme photos. This one is very pretty. I like the way the girl walking and looking. I also like the blurred background.
eldancer1 (36343) 2011-02-27 9:46
Very nice capture of this lady and good documentation. I like your pov and it has a good dof with sharp details. Good vivid colors. Well done, tfs.

Incredible atmosphere, colors..the girl walks much better than lots of models!
Have a good day!
dkmurphys (63903) 2011-03-04 1:21
Very picturesque scene. A bunch of big brands in that simple and primitive place. The strong contrast between the worlds. Great composition, well done.
Have a nice weekend.
danyy (0) 2011-03-04 23:34
peu de féminité pour cette femme, mais une tenue vestimentaire qui compense un peu cette attitude masculine de démarche. Des lumières excellentes et des rouges vifs qui attirent le regard.
BluSimo (9392) 2011-03-06 0:57
it's a magnificent shot, for the light warming the red ones, but above all for as it illuminates this girl walking fast. its fierce look and its feet that walk sure and without footwear make her a true one icona. the blurred background is fantastic. compliments!
have a great day
paninho (2931) 2011-03-07 3:57
Un fragment de vie parfaitement capturé! Une photo très dynamique grâce à cette palette de couleurs et à cette gestuelle très intéressante du sujet!
Félicitations pour ce travail!
ktanska (29037) 2011-03-12 0:44
I really should have commented this earlier, because this just is so good. Sort of catwalk glamour teleported to a beach hut. Red Coke crates make good contrast to both the woman and green background. And other crates make a charming still life scene themselves. To the favourites.
And good to read you are OK!
BennyV (20297) 2016-11-26 8:45
I see you're not that active here anymore, but I can't resist applauding this beauty!
