Oh, I'll never forget the ride on the back of a pick up truck from the Thai border to Muang Sing with a short stop in Luang Nam Tha :O)
This is a beautiful portrait, Caleb. Really high quality - sharpness and colours. Great light on her face!

J'aurais peut-être laissé plus d'espace sur la gauche.

Another excellent shot. The colour staining around the mouth adds some character and extra interest to the shot. Great composition and the light is nice and even. The tones on the face work well and the steer into the distance adds good character to the face too. Nice work.

Nice lighting, nice blur in the background, good colours. I wish she was looking in the other direction, but otherwise perfect. Well done.

Perfect portrait - the subject not centered and against the defocused background; the expression on her face; the sharpness of the details. But what caught my atention was the vivid colours of the "hat" on the nice green background.

hi Caleb - man it's so long since I seem to have bumped into your work I didn't even realise you had gone to Laos - you have collected such a richness of portraits on your travels and skills - this is a wonderful portrait moment of a very photogenic subject - a beuatifully handled shot for colour, bokeh and relationship with your subject....very nice work. a favourite,
best wishes Kev

I love all your people shots and portraits. They all are full of life and details to watch and enjoy.

Excellent portrait on the point of sharpness.
I suppose the woman is a Hmong or a Yao .
My remark is just for the position,I would have put her more on the right side to explore the direction of the eyes!
Do you agree with me?
