Walking through the tiny streets of charming Jogyakarta, one of Java's most colorful cities, I found this young model who allowed the shot.

Good shot! I really like the way you've balanced her in the composition against the boards. Lighting is strong without being harsh. I find myself wondering whether a little less sharpness on the boards would draw attention to her even better though - just a thought. Anyway, very well captured :-D

Daccord avec vous, soundsA. Cette photo a un "nice feeling", la jeune femme est tres bien decentree, et cela rajoute a la simplicite de la scene, plutot qu'a vouloir focaliser sur un portrait de jeune fille seulement. Tres bonne creation, toute simple, mais attachante!
Caleb, very nice composition of an hapahazard street scene that is better that if you tried to focus more on her. Colors are very natural, not much happening and still a very warm image and mood. Thanks

Great tones, and luckily, the subject wore a nice color shirt, which gives some brightness to the scene. Composition, exposition and sharpness are technically flawless. Good work.

Superbe model, great colors, excellent sharpness and framing... Nothing to add except that this reminds me of my holidays in Indonesia last month!
Thanks for sharing this shot with us Caleb.

Lovely image! I love the light and composition, but i especially love that you captured the demeanor girls her age have-beautiful,insecure, unsure of themselves, and brewing with emotions.

another nice composition, the sharpness is also very peasant.

A well framed shot, Caleb. A nice portrait of the girl. Lovely rich colours. Well seen.
