This picture was taken during a wedding. This is the moment of her exhaustion and and maybe sorrow. Her expression is not an act, but a truely moment that comes from inside of herself. Wedding in Cambodia lasts for a day a a half. Brides get tired easily with all of the things that they must follow. My goal is to capture this moment, always. And here it is.

Hey Sothy ;-)
You should do this work more often, you have a great eye for making these kind of pictures in a very special way. Not only the timing, but also that b&w toning which is pretty soft but just to be perfect for these kind of work.
A tight framed picture, no space is wasted and a wonderful facial expression on the woman her face....very lovely, great piece of work.
Did not see these kind of beautiful woman during my stay, or were you hiding them for me? ;-)
Take care, Henk

Sothy: a fine wedding image, even if you were just a bystander - very emotive. Your choice of sepia works perfectly here. best, c

THis is a very beautifull capture with a very interesting expression on her face. The post processing is perfect with a good use of the black and white.

Une belle prise, bon cadrage. Tu as très bien saisi l'expression de cette femme. La couleur sépia va à merveille.
Bien vu !

The reality of getting married huh? Usually we see the happy and smiley faces of the bride and groom. Your contrast in this capture and chosing the B&W is a good choice.
Good decisive moment.
