Another shot of a very mundane everyday subject, a street portrait of Tai Dam vendor with her distinct head covers and a bored face picked out of a crowd after much exploring in a busy and vibrant market place in Muang Sing.
Her expression perhaps says it all, her far away look in a moment of thought was something that really caught me.....

un altro dei grandi ritratti per i quali sei famoso.
Una eccellente gestione della luce e una ripresa perfetta del soggetto che appare illuminato da una luce perfetta.
Ancora un eccellente risultato conseguito nekl tuo viaggio nel Laos.
Ciao e buon inizio di settimana

The details and sharpness of the profile against the hazy background is quite fascinating.
The posture of the person is quite like someone who would stand her ground - come what may...
The bright head dress is interesting and gives a lot of character to the person and the photograph.
Beautiful colour with natural light on the face.
Thanks for sharing, Abmdsudi.

This lady looks very sad for some reason, deep in thought perhaps thinking of a sad time, or a lost loved one. You have captured that emotion in a very powerful way, as the sense of sadness portrays itself easily into me, and I feel somewhat sad too, wondering what makes this lady upset. The colors are beautiful and a strong contrast to the emotion of the scene, as is the strong golden rays of the sun.
Perhaps a nice statement, regardless how sad we are, the sun will always shine again. Very nice and thought provoking shot, I continue to learn a lot from your brilliant portraits.
All the best

What a lovely and melancholy (sounds better than bored) portrait. The woman is perfectly placed, facing the centre of he composition, and the blurred background has become like an abstract painting. The light hits the woman's face and her interesting headgear perfectly.

Lep pogled i trenutak ...
Gospodja je odlutala sa svojim pogledom ...
Dobar trenutak snimka i kontrast, lepe boje.
Lepa marama na glavi gospodje i trenutak sa svetlom koje je istaklo lepe crte lica.
Projatno vece i lepa noc, sve najbolje.
Nice view and a second ...
The lady wandered with his views ...
A good time recording and contrast, beautiful colors.
Beautiful ladies scarf on her head and a moment of light, which is highlighted fine features.
Good evening and a beautiful night, all the best.

Excellent colors and depth.
I like it.

the blurry background looks dense but remote, the vendor stands out alone with her thoughts which we can only guess in the absence of other interaction or reference. She has isolated herself from the surroundings and the crowd and you've managed to capture this interior process very well in her portrait. The warm tones on her face and head cover are very lovely amid the neutral tones in the rest of the frame. They can't, however, disperse the mystery which makes the portrait captivating. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely week,

Une belle réalisation de cette personne bien située dans ton cadrage, bien couverte et au regard qui semble être attiré par quelque chose

The light is super, the composition strong, the bokehed background the finishing touch
Sergiom (53863) 2013-11-17 11:56
J'aime beaucoup ce portrait. La dame est parfaitement placée dans l'image et son regard est dégagé de très belle façon grâce à une très belle profondeur de champs.

Superb portrait in the perfect light. The result is great!
kato (11630) 2013-11-17 14:08
You're capturing well this portrait by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the spectacle in which this woman is watching far away and is thinking about somewhat. It's also interesting in traditional head cover. The whole is harmonized well by a good arrangement and tasteful color combination.
jjcordier (72680) 2013-11-17 23:28
Superbe lumière sur le visage de cette femme qui se détache de belle façon sur cet arrière plan joliment flouté. Bon cadrage décalé qui laisse de la place au regard. Une très belle photo!

Nice portrait. For sure the nice side and warm lightning, but more, it is the blurred background with a nice bokeh and colors makink an echo with the clothes of the lady.
mirosu (12290) 2013-11-18 1:16
Excellent portrait in very nice warm light. Perfectly balanced arrangement with nice positive space. Also the separation from well blurred background is outstanding. Very well done.
krzychu30 (15260) 2013-11-18 2:01
it´s like a quintessence of a good portrait photography!
Her pose,facial expression so meaningfully depicted by You,but also light and so nicely bokeh contribute to the success of your composition!
Beautiful and very evocative shot!

You skillfully blurred background, so the lady is highlight. The color tone on her face is rich and gentle. This was a very nice capture indeed.
rychem (18927) 2013-11-18 7:34
Beautiful warm light on the face of this lady, very nice portrait with beautiful details, good composition
adramad (34959) 2013-11-18 7:38
I admire your great ability to get these wonderful portraits of such interesting characters, I love the POV, as you have located the woman at the side of the plane, so that the diffuse background decorate the image with its beautiful textures, which makes it stand out even more the character, with sharpness and clarity.
A nice color, so natural in these tones.
Well taken photo. I like
Enjoy a nice day.
saxo042 (36728) 2013-11-18 7:51
A very good portrait with fantastic colours and a perfect light. The blurry background makes this picture complete.

Belle lumière qui éclaire l'expression rêveuse de son visage, son incroyable chapeau haut sur tête et joliment décorée, bon cadrage et DOF
olive224 (2719) 2013-11-18 12:04
An effective composition with a great light and suddle colored blury background
Very well done
nikkitta (12834) 2013-11-20 14:12
Lost in her thought, also could be the title of this portrait that only you can spot, compose and take
Also your trademark, the bluured background and the soft light focusing in her expresion
Great work and capture of women and original cover head that atracks attention
eldancer1 (24783) 2013-11-20 14:59
It is a look with full hope for the future. Awesome lighting and good placement of the subject in the frame. Great use of the narrow dof to isolate the woman. Wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.
annjackman (17563) 2013-11-24 0:36
This lady is illuminated very beautifully and she is nicely separated from the indistinct BG. Gorgeous colours and great framing. A lovely and unusual portrait.
Kind Regards, Ann
adores (33954) 2013-11-29 15:07
Another good portrait! The soft light and the original and colourful head cover she's wearing are perfect! I like the composition and the dark background makes her stand out so well! A very good work!
kiks (11749) 2013-11-30 1:46
The use of DOF is just perfect to isolate this woman with indeed a distant look. I like it.
Waylim (24960) 2013-12-04 8:54
Another wonderful shot from my homeland. I love the way the golden light illuminated her face. The distant look and puzzling look allow us to share her feeling, perhaps, waiting for someone or just worring about something or just simply a moment of frustration and it's gone after the click.
tatadalou (5641) 2013-12-11 19:49
This woman seems fascinated by a scene she's seeing far away, she looks very absorbed and concentrate at the point she doesn't perceive you're taking her into photography. Nice quality on this shot, with an excellent sharpening and the blurry background.
