I met this woman while visiting Galataji Temple.
All Hindus know that "Life is meant to be lived joyously!"
Hindus strive to keep a pleasant expression on their face, a gentle smile and a kind word for everyone they meet through the day.
They know that every movement of the body, the face, hands, eyes, mouth, head, etc., has a meaning. Youth are taught to be sensitive to the thoughts and feelings of others in their body language.
Eyes are also a primary means of communicating, and the meanings are fairly straightforward. They usually indicate degrees of interest in what the speaker is saying. Smiling with your eyes as well as your mouth conveys sincerity.
Here the lady is actually concentrating on the shot (after many!!) and bursted in laugh straight after.

splendido ritratto, la fierezza della donna sottolineata dai bellissimi colori dei vestiti, foto molto nitida messa in evidenza dalla sfocatura del paesaggio

A nice colorful and expressive portrait shot from low angle and off centered, letting us see the environment
Not very often that we happen to meet ladies with uncovered hairs in Rajasthan
I met one, click here, also on the road climbing to Galta
Enjoy your WE
All the best

Good composition and camera settings to get her sharp against an out of focus background. She is not smiling, but maybe wondering what is your behaviour.
Have a nice WE

bellissimo ritratto perfettamente a fuoco, nitidezza da urlo e una resa cromatica eccezionale, la donna sembra una zingarona, espressione fiera...ma si vede chiaramente che gli piaceva essere fotografata, molto bello il taglio....

Che bella nota per accompagnare la tua foto altrettanto bella. Se solo potremmo vivere tutti da tale proverbio, il mondo sarebbe un luogo più pacifico. Impressionante láspetto di pace sulla faccia di questa signora. I colori e la nitidezza sono superbi e la sfocatura sullo sfondo dà definizione ancora di più per il bel soggetto.
Grazie per la condivisione e ti auguro una belle giornata

Excellent portrait de cette femme au regard fier. Lumière, cadrage, netteté et couleurs rendent cette photo très intéressante et très attractive.

wonderful portrait with pleasant lighting, clarity and lovely colours. The lady is very well placed in the composition, solid and colourful in a softly coloured environment with great sense od depth. The portrait is very vivid, the textures of her clothes, hair and skin are captured superbly. I also like very much the directness and steadiness of her glance. Well done,
All the best and a lovely weekend,

She doesn't seem to be very happy by the look on her face. Her hair is dishevelled. Good shallow DOF concentrating on her & blurring the BG. Well done portrait!
It seems you are in India now, as I see this picture has been taken a few days back & Valter mentioned he was in Jaipur

This is a wonderful portrait of this woman in deep thoughts. The lighting, colors and sharpness are simply great. She must have washed her hair before going to the temple. Many Hindus dip in water before the temple visit.

molto bello lo sguardo intenso di questa donna quasi a sfidare chi la riprende, ottima la nitidezza e i colori molto gradevole lo sfocato dietro, complimenti per la nota!

La donna mi fa un po pensare ad una 'pelle rossa'! Mi piace come risalta sul fondo sfocato.
Bei colori e compo scentrata
