This picture was taken during a wedding in Phnom Penh. I brought my camera with me and took some pictures from the wedding. I came across these two bautiful girls taking their pictures. They are very pretty, they have that typical Khmer look. I cannot help looking at their faces because they are so pretty. I thought I can share this with all of the TE members, esp. guys.

They are indeed very pretty, but I (being married!) am more intrigued by the fact that such a ceremony, with all the decorations, the dressing up, the simple freedoms, are once again possible in Cambodia, and that these people, after the horrendous recent history, are once again able to be themselves.
It's not a perfect composition, of course - it's way too cluttered - but as a grab shot it is quite good.

Very hot girls. I like your depth of field. It really brings the subjects to the forefront of the image. Very well done Sothy.

I agree with you. They are so beautifull and so khmers.
You have very well managed the light.
The spontaneity of the scene is also very nice.
Have a nice day

Nice shot Sothy. A truly original image of Cambodia in a sea of sad, poor children and adults (my own photos included). Great color and good composition. Sharp and detailed with really good clarity. A nice "refershing: shot.

Yes, beautiful indeed. Your fixed 50mm did a terrific job here. The picture is so sharp. You really handled light in a perfect way. Very good.

Walking through Phnom Penh,this is not a common view.These girls of the upper 10.000 look so beautiful and thinking about the streetscenes I`ve seen there is such a big contrast.
Great shot with perfect lightmangement and a very good timing.

I am impressed....not only by the beauty from these woman, but that there is also a high glossy part in Cambodia. I still have those images you showed me from the huge dumping area in Phnom Penh...a greater contrast between these two images is not possible.
Thanks for showing both, because this is also how it can be.
Yes the woman are both very beautiful...even on my age i like watching beautiful girls ;-)))

Did you offer to take a phot of the two young ladies? They are truly lovely, but how do you tell their features are Khmer? Like Dan Kohanski (Wandering Dan) I am amazed that after the blood baths of the Khmer Rouge, the country has rebounded; it is a tribute to the resilience of the human spirit.

thanks for sharing that picture,
they are truly beautiful, and your warm image gives us the feeling to be at the partty.
lucky guy ;-)

They certainly are, TFS.

it's interesting to see such different cambodian picture, something you don't usually see when check cambodian pictures. A glimpse into what Cambodia could be if not for its' tragic history, and what hopefully will become in future (as it's still not very representative for the most of the country). I keep my fingers crossed.

If I were there, I would be surely looking at them too. Actually I know the girl on the left hand. She is a friend of my friend.
