Bihari Village Girl: During my four day long stay in the Northern Bihar district of Muzaffarpur in late November 2013, I visited several villages and market areas and met many persons.It was a great experience and I was overwhelmed by the warmth of the local people.In one of the visits to a dilapidated village house,I came across this sweet little girl dressed in a purple cardigan and staring straight into my eyes.I wish her all the best for a bright future with good education and not so early marriage.Today is Christmas and I wish all my friends on TE - Merry Christmas ,wherever they may be and wish them good luck and happiness for the coming year.

A well-chosen picture for your Christmas wishes, as this is the festival of children par excellence !
Lovely candid look in her eyes ! I love the bright color of her clothes which Indian people favour all the time ; It makes life more cheerful I believe.
I am a little concerned about the state of her bare feet which don't look so healthy in my opinion. I hope I am wrong ! And like you I wish this little girl a future as good as can be.
Thanks for sharing and a merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you.

A very good capture of this young lady.

Good sharpness and the high key toned bg adds a nice graphic element. A superb diffused light and a good upward pov on the child. The colourful pink jacket contrasts strongly against the drab bg. I like the faded red brick contrasting against the soft cyan and blue magenta tints too. Merry Xmas to you!

I wish you and your family Merry Christmas and healthy 2014.
When I see this child in complete poverty, all the children in our society should look at this picture.
Colours and presentation be superb.
Excellent composition, nice depth.
Very well done, TFS.

She is a lovely girl with a very self-confident look. She acts totally naturally in front of the camera, looking not shy at all. She must have felt great confidence in you, and you did her the honour of a good photo with a perfect exposure and fine colours.
I wish you a safe and successful 2014.

I like the innocent look of this little girl. I like her bright pink jacket too which makes superb contrast with the dull surroundings. Taken from an interesting POV ...this photo is a good one. Thanks for sharing.

Quelle beau regard elle a cette jeune princesse aux pieds nus. Quelle belle assurance elle démontre, l'épaule appuyée sur le mur.Un point de vue bas qui l'avantage.

You're capturing well this portrait by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the little girl who is standing beside the pillar and wears the purple cardigan. Her look like very pure.
marabu61 (7211) 2013-12-26 1:19
Pleasing portrait of this young girl, with her brightly colored clothes she stand out against the rather drab background. And with you I do hope that she will have a fair chance in life as every child on this earth should have.
Merry christmas and a happy new year to you and your loved ones.

Many happy returns, blessings of the season to you and yours.
This is a beautiful portrait, as you say the way the girl is staring straight at you is quite haunting. Although she looks very young, her face has the appearance on one who has seen much hardship. Like you I wish her well in her future. A beautiful composition on this fine street portrait.
All the best
ikeharel (51389) 2013-12-26 9:17
Nice taken her portrait, stood on the door-step and looked at you with an inquisitive face expression. Well done farhat, gave joy to the little girl in purple/pink coat.
adramad (34869) 2013-12-26 9:40
Excellent portrait of this girl with the bright colors of her clothes, gives a good chromaticism to the image, to emphasize that stare at you, posing naturally.
Very good lighting and sharpness.
Enjoy a good week.

Namaste dear Farhat
This is a beautiful portrait of this adorable little girl. She looks so sweet and I like how you have photographed her using a low POV, where she is looking down at the camera. Excellent definition, colours and skintones.
Congratulations and I hope you had a happy Christmas

Wonderful photo of this little girl in colourful clothes that are contasting to the dull and grey surroundings. I love her confident look enhanced by that you seem to have taken the photo from a position beneath her. TFS and have a nice day!

After very long journey and even longer after-journey recovery I’m again able to view and comment all the beautiful TE photographs.
A beautiful photo. Smart choice of vertical frame to accentuate the small girl with splendid sharpness. Very nice photo with great color contrast, good light and very good POV choice. Excellent POV. Well done.
Wish you and your family a Happy, Healthy & Prosperous New Year.

a very interesting full portrait from an upward point of view that makes the little girl's expression even more intriguing. You managed the setting and context in which the little girl is standing very aptly, there's fine depth and sharpness, interesting angles, perspectives and textures. The neutral tones of the setting make the little girl's gaze and jacket so attractive. I'm sorry to see her toes hurt and feel that her life there is not easy. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely day,

J'aime la prise en contre bas, ces grands yeux vers vous, le crissement de ces petits pieds nus, le corps collé contre le mur, un très joli portrait d'enfant, bon cadrage et couleurs
jacquest (18073) 2013-12-29 9:12
This is a nice portrait of this little girl, colorfully dressed. Her interest in you and what you are doing is indeed evident from her eyes. She looks very relaxed.

serp2000 (37421) 2013-12-31 6:05
Excellent work! It reminds me a glam model from some magazine. Good low point of view, impressive contrast of the bright clothes and the grey walls. TFS!
Happy New Year!
Greetings from Sri Lanka!
Waylim (24944) 2013-12-31 9:05
If not for the pink sweater and skirt, She could have disquise as a boy with the short hair cut. Beautiful. and love how she pose nicely for you. nice control of the light and strong and vivid color.
Happy New Year!

TFS and all the best for the New Year !

This is a very artistic photo from this low POV. I cannot explain why, but I like the placement of the open door behind the little girl.
SWEETFREEDOM (21516) 2014-01-02 2:10
children are always a good subject for pictures. the purple jacket that wears this little girl contrast very well with the rest of the picture.
Oceania (4468) 2014-01-09 7:18
This girl in red clothing is so cute. Her facial expression is very natural and sweet. You captured it perfectly.
