Great image. The full frontal display of her amazing outfit (and whatever she is holding in her hands) is set off against her face in profile. You document the costume in the best possible way, and her smile is well captured. Lighting is good, and depth of field is just right to emphasize your foreground subject, while giving some information about her surroundings too.

You have really captured the mood and emotion of the occasion in this image. The lighting really 'brings out' the subtle textures of the young ladies costume. The smile of your subject is, for me, the 'eye catcher' in this image

Wonderful photo. Really you were there at the right time and right moment. I agree with longwayfromhome: her smile is indeed an eye catcher

This is my favorite of yours. I like how the background seems desaturated from the main subject and I am fascinated by photos of other cultures. Thank you for sharing.

Very nice photo but the colors are cold and contrast is low. Try to use photoshop photo filters to warm the colors and incrase the contrast.
