Greetings Mohammad, how was your trip?
Very nice festival portrait.
It is somewhat out of focus, just a slight bit but it is visible.
I like the play of colour, her tanned skin works well with the elaborate dress and surroundings.
Lighting seems ok, but I feel it is somewhat too bright. I can't say what the lighting conditions were but I'm guessing you used flash.
Very personal photo to her with the blurred background. What I think is somewhat irritating is that the background has some quite obvious pixelation, notice the arm sticking out to the left of her face.
Thank you for sharing.

Excellent portrait style image Mohammad - a nice, soft foucs on the girl, well lit with good colours that compliment her own beauty & that of her attire.

Un beau portrait même s'il semble que la netteté soit plus sur la poitrine que sur le visage. Merci

I would not say Great portrait. Coz Really I am not getting any feeling by this.
Over sharpening may made the subject very flat.
I respect your attempt to isolate her from the background but some how she looks very unnatural.
She has good good smile but the over all stracture of her body is not in best position to call "Feminity" .
On background, I can see hand of other dancer. Really that should not be a best selection to put in bokeh.
I would prefer some colorful dress or sort of contrast which can take this dancer more popping on the screen.
Even light can be more controlled.
Your F-stop is f/6.3 & Shutter is with 1/80.
This cannot be proper selection while dancing.
Since you are trying to get good bokeh & to get action freez..(Since It is festival portrait) ..you should go more down F-stop like F-3.5 or even more with high shutter speed where you can Freez action of dancing girl in franction.
I really appriciate your efforts towords Portrait shooting but this one is disoppointing.
Sorry mohammad..I am very harsh on you.. Now a days..but sure you can understand me!!!
Please feel free to reply back with any critic.

Hi Mohammad. What power in those eyes, enough to bring most men to their knees.Excellent sense of movement and vibrancy. Beautiful colours. Did you enjoy the food? I'll be in Jahore in September. Pity I missed such a wonderful carnival. Salaam. Klaudio

Nice portrait, Mohammad.You captured very well the glance of this woman with interesting face. I like the POV,light, colors and framing a lot.

This is a powerful portrait. The face is lovely and expressive and the eyes have powerful emotion. The contrast is strong and the detail brought out in the dress is well rendered. Good moment of capture and nice impact. Good work.
