For lots of people, traveling means sitting in the sand with suntan lotion and hanging around all-inclusive resorts, remaining inside the walls of their hotel complex for two weeks, except to go to a nearby shopping center or to take a day-trip to visit a a banana plantation with other tourists.
Although I respect everyone's preferences, I consider that the real fun begins when actually getting in touch with locals. So although Zanzibar is a very pleasant destination for its long deserted beaches, it was obvious that few tourists have visited adjacent villages, according to the enthusiastic reaction and interest of its small population.
As Wanda was busy shooting a person through a house window, this neighbor showed her curiosity by peeking out, allowing me to have a wonderful subject for myself.

Hello Andre. Another of your outstanding photos. The really important thing is represented in the narrow frame. Realistically, aesthetic, masterfully realized.

A candid shot with a low exposure giving a very soft light and adjusted carefully with strong contrast.
Nice DOF achieved.
Love the yellow color.
Thanks for sharing.

La curiosité est parfois un vilain défaut mais là, c'est une grande qualité car elle t'a permis de réaliser ce très beau portrait de cette charmante jeune fille de Zanzibar. Techniquement impeccable et très esthétique.

Excellent woman photo in superb light. I like the nice direct eye contact and excellent color contrast. The tight crop and vertical composition works very well for it.

That is a wonderful portrait. Peeking from behind some obstacle is a common trick in fashion photos, but it's much better when it happens instinctively.

Un bon portrait d'une souriante jeune fille
Mort de rire, j'adore ta description réaliste des vacanciers moyens !

I like your clever framing with the girl peeping out from behind the door. Her clothes are delightfully colourful and contrast well with the grey wall. Excellent skin tones - a very fine portrait.
Kind Regards, Ann

very nice portrait with the woman peeking from behind the walls. I like how the cold grey colors of the house make her colorful outfit stand out and they also frame the composition neatly. Good focus on the person and pretty colors.
Thanks for sharing and have a nice day
