Sometimes when you meet someone and they share with you such a smile, your day can turn to a beautiful one so easily...
“Immersing myself in a country means, for me, quietly wandering the backstreets of its cities, towns and villages. I must pass by quickly and quietly in order to capture the “out of the corner of my eye” immediacy that I seek before I disturb the scene”.
James Whitlow Delano
“Immergersi in un Paese significa, per me, vagabondare tranquillamente tra le strade delle sue città e dei suoi villaggi. Trovo che sia ancora possibile scivolare inosservati in un luogo o in una situazione, almeno temporaneamente. La velocità è tutto. Devo continuamente cambiare velocità, prima devo essere veloce e poi subito lento, per catturare l’immediatezza di ciò che si trova al di fuori del mio sguardo ed evitare di disturbare la scena.”
James Whitlow Delano

nice shot by the natural attitude of the young girl, of course the backlight in her hairs and her delicate skin hues. No need to mention the overall quality and sharpness

Ooooh, Mistral! That's classy! The colors are wonderful with a beautiful soft bokeh and the light that makes her hair radiate in the sun. And her smile... simple, just a little shy, fresh... adorable! Really, a lovely portrait, and visibly a wonderful moment. Congratulations!

A lovely portrait. Very well done. Technically there are white spots here and there on the image. Would suggest you get rid of these with PhotoShop.
