We met this girl in a Bishnoi village about 60km outside of Jodhpur. She is 16 and has lived in the village all her life. This was taken in the morning - she goes to school in the afternoon. This girl and her family were extremely friendly and hospitable (typical of Bishnoi people).
I hope you enjoy the photo ...

I like this portrait. It is a fairly simple compo, has good colors and she looks straight in the lens.
However there is no spontanious smile when she sees the camera and the wall seems a bit over exposed. I like the contrast between the light and the dark though.

Nice portrait. Like the use of the wall and available light. This is an underappreciated photo.

Remarkable portrait and great use of the direction and quality of light. The sharpness and colors are outstanding. Although posed yet she seems very casual and at ease in the presence of your camera. It seems that you connected very well with the subject. Congratulations.
