A beautiful kid with a lovely costume gave a very serious pose. Great sharpness and DOF. Well captured.

She makes a fascinating gesture, like she wants to take the sky down. The way she looks upwards she also creates a diagonal passing through her hand and going back through the beads hanging from her hat. These colors would probably be regarded as bad taste in the West, but for a little Hmong girl they're just right.

Fabulous composition here, he girl's line of sight directed exactly at her raised hand. Perfect focus too, the girl's image being razor-sharp against a well out-of-focus background, and beautiful strong and varied colours.

Beautiful natural pose captured extremely well, love the colours of the traditional dress, the facial expression and hand movement, just superb. Wonderful portrait TFS

Her pose and obvious concentration are beautiful. The colours of the costume and the sharpness are isolated from her surroundings by the out of focus BG - excellent camera work.
Kind Regards, Ann

I find the hat wonderful of colors and knit work.
Very well composition and presentation.
Sharpness and clarity make these picture attractive.
Very well done, TFS.

Another good portrait! The details and colours of her hat and clothes are so unique and you captured a nice and unusual pose. Perfectly captured, with a good blurred background.

Another superb portrait, with saturated but realistic colour, and great timing. I don't know what she is doing, but it's taking all her attention, and she didn't have any left for you, giving you licence to grab this lovely candid. I'm jealous!
