The magnificent mountain is above the cloud level. The kid in red really adds colour to this picture. Lovely

Hi Luca, very interesting and beautiful composition from the unspoiled geography of Madagascar. The local girl and the huge massive rock behind create a nice combination. Regards, Tolga

Excellent photo, of the little girl strolling toward you and the immense, vertical cliffs creating the backdrop. 2658 m is around 8700 ft or 850 stories. That is astonishingly high. The girl's bright red dress adds a color highlight to the cool colors of the photo.

e' vero, la montagna sullo sfondo e' imponente, eppure quello che piu' mi piace di qs. foto e' il fatto che la bambina cammina scalza ma ha un cappellino, uno di quelli che vedo spesso alle signore di colore qui quando vanno in chiesa la domenica... e anche se tiene gli occhi abbassati, si vede che ti stava sorridendo :)

This is just perfect! The huge rock in background, crowned by the white cloud and this little girl in red. A very good composition with good light and focus!

Like a shot from the land before time. Focus on the girl isn't 100%, but I very much like the soft and natural feel of this picture.
