This is what we term a ZOL, a handmade cigarette / cigar. Wide angles works it magic on this great lead in to her face.

Almost humorous shot. Hope it is regular tobacco in that cigar, if not her vision might become like the really nice blurred background. Love the details we can see on her beautiful face. Very well done.

Nice shot.I like the old lady,relaxing expression and of course...the unusual cigar!
(Avigur 11 WS is very nice too.)

Very nice shot, her skin is so well detailed, it's fun as well. blurred backgnd adds to the sharpeness of the character.

Great portrait of a smoking lady.

Great! The face of the woman is perfectly showing the quality of life that we think it must have. The cigar is well different. The fingers of it had called me the attention very. This photo shows a life suffered from a woman who finds desire in smoking. Excellent idea with good composition. You it made right. I liked very.

Nice portrait. I am just wondering how old could be this woman enjoying the Jumbo-cigar, maybe much younger that anybody would guess...but you probably didnt ask her, right??? If there would be some more light in her face to increase the details which are anyway very good. I like the thin-looking brown fingers which are perfect contrast to the oversized light-colored cigar...

Wow, if i smoke a rocket like this, that would fly me to the moon, for sure :-)
glad you caught her hard leathery fingers. They are an important part of the power of that image.

Hi Terje, just to let you know she is still there, i think in the same market, still smoking her cheroots. two years later http://www.trekearth.com/gallery/Asia/Myanmar/photo259761.htm
Great capture, nice expression on her face, she really did enjoy her smoke.

Excellente cette photo!
Esperons que ce qu'elle fume n'est pas trop fort pour elle.
