Just after the sacred dance performance, she took off her georgous headdress and realxed herself. I guess she was nervous for her first performance and she seemed to be so ease. Intentionally I set an extream shallow exposure in order to make the background blurred. Her cute smile still remains vivid in my mind.

Excellent portrait. The shallow depth of field also separates the small girl from the background. A well presented crop allows eyes to remain fully fixed on her face. This is a really beautiful interaction, and is a good example of portrait mode. The perfect light and sharpness and all details also lends a lovely atmosphere to the photo. Have a very nice weekend.

I work regular with the same lens, a very good lens for portraits.
We get a wonderful result, the eyes and tooth are very important and very well taken.
Sharpness and clarity are perfect.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,

A nice portrait of this smiling girl
Maybe I'd have cropped some of the right part of the image, not really useful IMHO
Have a nice WE, best regards

Another stunning smile! Your idea to blur the background is excellent, as it focuses on the girl and her amazing smile, but the colours of the head dress still add a wonderful element to the image. As always, another wonderful image. Thanks for sharing!

Hola dear Takero
Lovely and cute portrait of the smiling girl, so tiny and must wear so a big and heavy headdress
Great way to capture her blurring the BG
Congrats, well done

Hello Takero. This picture speaks for itself. It is excellent and beautiful. Such photos will only succeed if someone is able to communicate well. Congratulations.

Great portrait of pretty little dancer from the island of Bali. The girl has a very endearing smile. Joy is beating up on her. In the blurred background you can see a big bouquet of colorful flowers. Excellent quality photographs.
