Orissa possesses one of the largest and most varied Adivasi populations of the Indian states. Most haven't yet seen enough foreigners to become jaded, yet anyway...

The face is maybe little bit noisy but the light is so beautifull. I like also the smiling glance of your little princess ans the nice colors.

Her portrait is splendid under well usage of lights. Her face, looks are spectacular and especially I like your nosy frame that adds great value with her smile. Congratulations. I wish you a very good new week.

Although I would have prefered to have seen her looking into the frame this not does deter from the fine colour-tones and textures of the image. Her gold earring being the jewel in the crown.

Very very nice with the light. The dominating Orange color in the frame is Lovely.

This nice picture is made of one dominant colour and this creates a good effect.
Very nice composition

Great textures, colours and composition. The noise on the face is a bit awkward but it works well in the rest of the shot.

Congratulations for this impressive portrait of this beautiful girl. Her expression is so nice... She irradiates a peaceful happiness that is very pleasant and relaxing.
The lighting is great, enhancing her very nice.
Too bad for the grain, but even that doesn't disturb me much.
TFS, Regards, Jose

something really nice about the light here. the way she looks out of the frame is what i always look for in portraits, as it connects to the world unseen in the frame. a very good subject to work on.

what a beautiful portrait of the girl with the beautiful smiling. The light is great and the colours are superb.
Great job as usual,

Very nice work on this one--i know that i've really commented a lot about the contrasts in your pictures, but this one is all about harmony, and it works very well, particularly with the note about how most haven't seen enough foreigners to become jaded yet. The color scheme is great, staying in neutral reds and oranges. The grafiti on the wall is nice context, leading into the girl in a way that doesn't distract from her at all, and giving a true white. Also, you managed to capture a nice feeling of distant thought in her eyes which allows her to look out of the frame--her thoughts cannot be contained within it. The vertical post on the far left anchors that side of the frame, as well.

The glow in her eyes and the warm colours are simply mindblowing. The subject is well in focus. The positioning is intersting. The management of light is something i have to learn.Great potrait of this tribal lady. TFS

Magnifique portrait dans les tons ocres. Le cadrage sort un peu des normes établies et c'est ce qui ajoute à son charme. Très beau "piqué" au niveau du visage. Le rouge du ruban fait ressortir la boucle d'oreille pour la mettre vraiment idéalement en valeur. Great job !

Although i see very light colour noise (high iso?) i like the mood in which you cretead this picture in existing light. The eyes of the girl are worth a million. But also a view of young and innocent, a bit shy, but curious.
A lovely portrait...high class...great work.

Otro buen retrato de los muchos que componen ya tu galería.
Preciosa mirada la de esta niña con un brillo especial en sus ojos.
Me gusta que aparezca descentrada en la imagen, así como los colores y luces.
Los retratos son una de mis asignaturas pendientes en la fotografía.
Un saludo: Javi

Magnifique, ce portrait, avec un superbe décor.
rbcy1974 (20758) 2006-12-19 2:56
Incredible ornagy colour/light here. The texture of the girl's face is amazing, as is the sharpness of her eyes. The background really livens up the portrait
PS Ill be off to Egypt today, so happy holidays

She is so beautiful, so lovely with her big eyes. Your compostion is a delight, all in the same tones with a wonderful light highlighting every single detail.

Lovely compo and girl. Good colours and atmosphere and the way she looks out of the picture.

Beautifull portrait of this Orissan girl, makes me want to go there again.

Fantastic colour-tones you have here - and the light in the girls eyes is just gorgeous.

A bit shabby looking, but with naive and clear eyes the girl is quite pretty and harmonized with amber color background. I like this photo very much.

Hi Caleb, beautiful one, i like the way you escape from having her glance directly pointed on your cam, this is nice that way, against a colorfull wall, marvelous picutre to watch.
You are very talented

A splendid portrait of your little princess with beautiful eyes having big catchlights.
The orange light on her face also shows her to better advantage in the background of a cute pattern on the orange wall.
Have a nice day, Hisashi
