An impromptu portrait taken at Wat Bo, a temple situated in Siem Reap, the city from where all visits to the fabled Angkor Temples nearby, start.
Rather rare in Provincial Cambodia, Wat Bo does have a splendid array of old wall paintings, worth seeing. Here is a link to Andy Brouwer's page where he extolls the virtues of that monastery:

I like a lot her pose ,looking back at you and your camera and her shy and at the same time curious expression at her face.

with a name like yours I was prone to write in french but just in case I continue in french...
very nice and delicate portrait. I like her posture even though it looks like she is somewhat posing for your lens
natural skin hues and mild light
A good one
have a nice evening

A very soft and warm portrait with lovely natural colours. I like the accent of the earring, it's a great element in the composition here.

Very relaxed and natural pose, diffused light, no sharp shadows, warm expression, communicating eyes. A lovely portrait.

A beautiful moody portrait! Yes the looking backwards towards you with her sweet glance is lovely!
I don't remember this Wat in Siem Reap, but like most tourists, we were obsessed with seeing Angkor Wat. A great addition to your gallery! Fine work, warm regards,

Quel regard tu as capté! La jeune fille se transforme en séductrice avec un geste gracieux vers le photographe. Cadrage idéal.
toutes mes félicitations

Hi Herve. Really a special portrait. The Children of Siem Reap naturally try to be especially nice for obvious reasons. However, like the photograph it very much. Regards, Wolfgang.

The pose of the girl is nice through the eyes to the camera.
These lady has nice ear-drop
Nice depth and perspective.
Very well done, TFS.

Trés beau portrait de cette petite cambodgienne. On sent qu'il de passe quelquechose entre le photographe et la fillette. De l'intensité dans ce regard et un brin de questionnement.
