Murara Angke Fish Market - Drying Centre - Young Girl
A young local girl at Murara Angke Fish Market in Jakarta, Indonesia.
Local are extremely friendly and eager to have there pictures taken, especially with a tourist. The 2 local photographers never seemed to get eager subjects for their camera.
That being said, even although I had the mothers permission the little girls was not quite so willing and I got this one shot before she scurried off.
I have decreased the saturation on the colours in the background.
I am new resident to Jakarta and would welcome any comments and/or suggestions (by forum or private message)of possible photo opportunities or excursions in our near Jakarta.

Welcome to Jakarta. This picture is very well composed and exposed. Good judgement on the saturation management. The overall look creates a moody almost sad atmosphere. The only thing that may have made this more dramatic if the little girl was in a more dynamic posture which understandably would have been hard to capture given the situation your were in and the fleeting moment that it was. I hope I am wrong and don't want to be judgmental in any way, but I am fearful that the potential pollution of heavy metals in the waters near this area may have affected this family. Looking forward to more photos from you. There will be unending human interests for photography in this city.
