In Kumbalgarh village situated under the Fort.
I leave in a few hours for a week walking holiday in the Cevenne, France. The weather is good so I hear, the scenery quite beautiful. Landscapes are not my forte by any stretch of the imagination, but with a lack (I assume) of photogenic portraits and a D90 aching to be used, I will have to go against the grain and chance my luck:)

Do I detect a Scalerman influence here? The tight crop above the head, the up-close positioning, the eye for background...very Scalerman! And that IS meant as a compliment. This is a very good portrait. Only possible improvement thing I can think of: the background pink is rather soft. But - again - this is great work.
Enjoy the Cevennes, we just returned from a week in the (eastern) Cevennes and had lousy weather. I heard it's better now, so enjoy! It's a fantastic area. I'm VERY curious to see what pictures you will come up with, as I'm in a similar situation, when it comes to portraits and landscapes.

very good portrait, well composed.
Good colors, background is not distracting from the main topic.

Hi Elaine, the colors are so soft with the pink of the wall in the background in particular. Gives a very special atmosphere to your shot. Deph is remarkable she really stands out.

Hi Elaine, I hope that you are well. A fine portrait of the gentle woman, well placed in the frame and nicely put in front of the textured pink wall. The framing gives all desired attention to her natural looks and colorful gown. Very nice.

This is a very sweet one. Subtle but endearing, with lovely focus. She has such a great expression, and of course her cloths are gorgeous. Great work as always, cheers,
