The Pah-O are the second most numerous ethnic group in Shan State after the Inthas. Also known as the Taungthu people, they live in the southwest of Shan State from the slopes of mountains near Kalaw up to Thaton region at the foothills of the Bago Yoma ranges.
They are mostly engaged in agriculture, cultivating their staple cash crops which includes the 'thanapet trees', the leaves of which are used for wrapping tobacco and other herbs to make most of the country’s cheroots.

A very appealing and interesting portrait. Excellent framing, sharpness and light management describe the lady's features in a very accurate and comprehensive way. The warm light brings out the tone and texture of her skin superbly. Her glance is very sharp, intense and intriguing giving us also a hint of her character. The blue and pale green of her headscarf as well as the red diagonal of her garment offer delightful colour touches that frame the face in a wonderful way. Lighting and contrasts give a 3D impression. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely weekend,

This is a beautiful portrait of this woman, and the close crop is a brilliant idea, it draws the eye to the detail of her skin, her makeup on her cheeks and the fascinating glance to the side at she's making. Beautiful rich image of an excellent subject.
All the best

Again a very wonderful portrait, so close that we can see every detail of the woman's face. She has a slightly worried look, whether that is because she was shy of your camera or she just reacted to something going on beside her. The light is masterly handled and enhances the few colours very nicely.

a very intimate portrait, perfectly taken with a superb framing and pleasing colors.
The expression of the face is so full of character and the way she looks to one side gives her the needed privacy.
Truly this is the work of a professional portraitist.
have a good weekend

Le cadrage est parfait.

An excellent portrait. Smart choice of vertical frame to accentuate the woman face with splendid sharpness. Very nice photo with nice color contrast, good light and very good POV choice. Well optimized crop. Excellent result.

Grief or concern? Who kwows!
Anyways, the expression is intense to the point of creating wrinkles on forehead; they appear in HD resolution and the cropped posture is by the rules book!

I´ve written it before,but I have to repeat it-you´re really master when it comes to portrait photography.Every single portrait taken by you is not just another pic,just tell us some story,which stands behind photographed person.This one is magnificent.Excellently framed and timed.

Very good portrait quality frame
The lady has a natural humble attitude.
Robert1969 (6238) 2013-01-20 3:29
A portret picture that can used in a magazine:
quality is excellent and the picture have
something: it will tells some kind of story
and it shows that the woman is thinking about
something. The question is only about what and
that makes the viewer curiuos.
thebest (3370) 2013-01-20 20:45
What a lovely portrait of this lady deep in a pensive mood - the clarity of your photo is sensational & I always find your notes so interesting.
