Photographer's Note

Well, it's not exactly "THE Afghan Girl" (the famous National Geographic cover of the girl with haunted, green eyes). Nevertheless, this is one of my favorite shots from a recent trip to Kabul. Look closely at her right cheek - I especially liked the detailed patterns created by the sunlight streaming through the geometric patterns of her shawl.

Sorry - lost a little resolution again when resizing. Maybe that's not too bad in this case - it gives her face a bit of a soft focus.

As always, I'd greatly welcome advice - especially in terms of post-processing, which I desperately need to learn. A personal note: I'm taking some time off this week, during which my daughter will try to learn post-processing and then (try to) pass on what she's learned to her Old Dad! That's the plan. (A bit of a Father's Day present?). Any "coaching" from our TrekEarth friends on this would be greatly appreciated.
