Hello, Mark, This is a good shot of the expressions of these women, particularly the 3 who appear to be looking down at something and the one with her eyes covered as if crying. I wish there were more of a note to explain what is going on with them. What kind of festival is this?
It is always interesting to see, in these cultures where women must all be covered to mask their individualtiy as people, that their humanness comes through on their faces anyway. You have caught that nicely.

Very graphic use of the dark clothes to bring both mood and attention to the ladies' faces, Mark. This is an engaging, thought-provoking image.

A really interesting image Mark - I hope they were OK with you taking this - I guess the one who really wasn't took appropriate action anyway! I like the expressions too - I think the black frame is too heavy - I'm sure white would work better.
best wishes Kev
