A photograph taken during a ceremony in a temple at the region of Bangli. This legong dancer was waiting her turn to perform the dancing during the ceremony. She was smiling at me when she knew that I pointed my camera to her..
A bit difficult to compose this photo as the background was so bright, but after doing this and that with the metering, I could capture her smiling face.

Très beau portrait! On est habitués à voir les multiples couleurs; le choix du B&N donne à mon avis, plus de force au visage, bien vu!

A beautiful and elegant subject, symbolic of the gentle, spiritual and artistic nature of the true Balinese. Great effect in B&W, fine details, lovely light. Regards. Klaudio.
