Around Angkor Wat Ruin, there are many small nameless temples. At one of those temples, I met her. She was a reticent, mild and kind lady. Even though she prayed to the Buddha seriously, as she recognized my Camera, She gave the several poses until I was satisfied. Now I am apprehensive about her and hope she is now fine.

What a friendly and amicable face! One can nearly forget all troubles of the world when looking at this picture. A truly wonderful portrait ... but the rather big lettering is very disturbing here - especially here!
Greetings from Germany!

very good portrait! You really succeeded in reaching the best result! Very good POV, but what's most important is the smile, the mood, the look of her eyes. (Though I would prefer her to look directly at you:))
Very kind and tranquil mood is conveyed in the photo.

How are you? This portrait is well done. Like the softness & her folded hands. Good use of shallow DOF here...clarity is also OK. Well done!
