Welcome in TrekEarth!!!
Good start I would say.
Interesting portrait of interesting man. I like his make up, hat, and stuff arround head. Nice colours and light.
One thing : his face is a bit out of sharpness and contrast, anyway very good start in TE.

Welcome on TE, Karolien!
Excellent close portrait of this Bororo man.
Your image is great but I wanted to try a Ws to enhance the sharpness and to make it a bit darker...
Really a little as your image was already very good.

This is a beautiful portrait, and this man's face really draws me in. I like the tight cropping and all of the details you have captured. Welcome to TE!

I think that this is a wonderful portrait! The image needs to be a little sharper and maybe some levels need to be worked on a bit to bring out some more contrast in the face, but that is about it. It is a really great shot!
