The blurred background is ideal to accentuate the lovely young Laotian beauty in this photo from four years ago. The colors are wonderful, as is the gaze of the young woman.

Hi dear Takero,
In Laos you found also a festival! I was rather interested there in splendid architecture. Charming Lao Miss. Interesting object before her.

i miei complimenti per questo bel ritratto che riprende un avvenimento inconsueto con una ripresa eccellente sia per l'uso intelligente che hai fatto della messa a fuoco selettiva che per l'ambientazione nella quale hai ripreso la miss.
Ottima la nitidezza e molto bella anche l'espressione della modella.
Ciao e buona giornata

Beautiful portrait of this young Laote woman with the perfect DOF to throw the background out of focus. Well framed with lots of interesting details and a wonderful dress on the girl.
have a good day

this is not only nice portrait but also good scene. The girls in the background create very good fond and the girl in the foreground looks even more outlined for her beauty. Interesting detail in the right corner - what is this?
The colors are beautiful and so is the light.

Good portrait of the Semi-Miss and the unusual sculpture in the tray!I like the focus and the atmosphere we can notice in the blurred background.
A really interesting festival, I believe!

Hello dear Takero-san
I see you bringing out your old gems from your archives! This one's 4 year old & is a charming picture! The sweet beautiful young lady in the FG and the masks balance each other well. 'Semi-Miss' rather seems an intriguing word :-). Fine work!
Best Regards from warm Mumbai

Hello, dear Takero! I did not see this photo from Luangprabang. I really love this clever composition with a blured background. Once I was in Crown Plaza Hotel on Hainan Island where we met a lot of Misss from all countries of the world. They were prepared for a final part of The Miss World. Amazing moment when the best girls of the planet walk around you.
Best wishes! Serghei
