The Silk Seller
After visiting temples during a very hot day, what best to end the day that going to a shop where there are a wide range of interesting item to admire, or eventually buy, silk, but also jewelry, carving wood, all in a charming place offered in an artistic way, as the carves offered by the charming lady
Being a group of 5 woman that is what we did and ended having dinner at the French restaurant located in a traditional wooden structure, as were houses in old times

Spectacular pink and yellow colors, maria, and black contrast on white all with the background of the darkened brown-golden room.
A fine clear shot, distinguished the colors very well.
Face expression of the young lady are pleasent and looks content.
Buen fin de semana,

I find the pic very cool, it has a warm touch and it seem that it was taken without to much effort. So then its great since it is a natural one. Keep on good work.

There is lots to admire in this scene, most striking being the purple silk and the way the light reflects creating a beautiful lighting effect in the whole shot. The colors of the silk is superb as well, with the gold tones looking brilliant against the purples, all very regal colors.
The lady's pose is perfect too, she looks as still as a guard at Buckingham palace, but with a warm and inviting smile hidden behind her face. A warm hello to the very cool elephant in the corner too. Lovely image, thanks.
All the best

Un retrato maravilloso, con el bonito entorno de la tienda y ese bol delante de la chica presentado de forma tan artistica, pero sin duda lo mas destacable es la propia modelo, guapisima y con una expresion serena y relajada, que va mas alla de la imagen.
Hermosa gama de colores, en un dia precioso de luz.
Magnifica iluminacion y una gran nitidez para recrearnos en los detalles.
Very well done.
Disfruta de un feliz fin de semana.
All the best.

Qué colores vibrantes! Esto parece como un lugar magnifico. Y su decisión para usar el color de la blusa, en una linea flaquita, para hacer el bordar alrededor de la foto -- es genio!
Saludos, profesora mia,

The fill flash has worked reasonably well with soft shadows and no glaring reflections. Good sharpness and the womans Khmer facial features are recognisable in the enigmatic stone statues of Bayon, a fantastic temple I have been fortunate enough to visit. A good exposure on the highlights. I may have blurred the bg wall in photoshop to mask the grain. Tfs!

Not the best quality, but surely show the attitude and the welcoming smile and color of Cambodia. Lovely smile and friendly attitude.

Lovely pose, the smile makes the shot for me, sincerely not your best shot although the elements are there. harshness of flash light is bit disturbing. Anyway it's a fine record shot, TFS

a charming portrait of the lovely and graceful lady surrounded by elegant elements that reflect the artistic tradition of her country. I like very much the sense of depth, the placement of the tray in the frame and the mesmerizing arrangement and brightness of the scarves. The flashlight has a different influence on the chromatic tones depending on the distance but there's very good clarity and we get a great idea of the lady, the shop and your experience there. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely weekend,

An engaging portrait photo, her slight smile grabs my attention right away...there feels to be a personal and inviting sentiment to the expression. I'm loving the contrasts of color and light. The bright and vibrant silk combined with the background of the soft, warm lights has made for a compelling mixture.
I can imagine this would in fact be a nice way to relax after a long, hot day. Another pleasing and welcoming type of photo with the localized appeal. A tough light condition to balance, but you've found a nice medium. Well done mon ami! :)
Hope you're having a good weekend. Take care.

Joli regard et un tout beau visage de la jeune fille, une lumière chaude d'intérieur contre les couleurs vives et attirantes des tissus en présentation
Beau dimanche a toi

bonito retrato de esta encantadora vendedora de seda, cuya chaqueta armoniza perfectamente con los bonitos rollos de colores en la cesta.
La imagen está bien iluminada y los colores son vivos y atractivos.
PD: a partir de hoy ya podré presentar nuevas fotos de Estambul, ya he terminado todo el trabajo de procesado, montajes de fotos y video, etc....

Otra interesante toma de la gente de Camboya, captada con muy buena luz y colores! Esto son dulces? Lo cierto es que sus fuertes colores le dan una belleza especial a la foto! Bello trabajo!

Une image intéressante, seulement la pause de la jeune fille est figée, l'essentiel c'est de photographier une action.
L'arrière plan est bien éclairé, j'utilise mon flash très rarement et je compense les couleurs avec la balance des blancs grâce au RAW

I was a bit silent during past days (without Internet-lot of traveling); just yesterday I came back from my Kerala trip, and it was excellent. My silence is broken. I've already started posting photos from this trip.
Thanks for interesting introduction note.
I like this photo very much. The cropping helps with the composition as it places girl eyes on a third and the very good light creates a very nice visual impact. Indeed a pleasant portrait as she seem so comfortable and the wonderful smile is real value here. The lighting you have used is very kind to her natural skin tones and shallow DOF has further emphasized the vivid detail.
Very well done photo.

Me pregunté que estaba vender esta bonita chica ! Muy interesante tu explicaciòn.
Reconozco el arte de presentaciòn de los paìses de Asia del Sud, y la beleza exterior y interior que emana de las personas.
Congratulaciones por la cualidad de esta captura. Los colores rosas se destacan muy bien su la penombra del fondo.
