These novice nuns are not from the same family, but they are indeed sisters from the western religious perspective.They both have a calm serenity that is typical of so many of the local population.

Its a nice pose of the two sisters Andy. Its a shame that the tourist are in the background. I know its difficult to get the background as you would wish, but it is often worth waiting a minute and checking the background before you make your final composition.

A very nice portrait of these novice nuns.You're right ,we can feel calm and serenity on their face.And you're also right about the local population.When I was in Myanmar ten years ago,I was impressed by the population ,always smiling and very friendly.
I was really fascinated by your country.And I hope to go in Myanmar again.
Your composition is very good with a nice brightness.
Friendship from France.

Portraits are always very pleasant to look at.
Maybe one advice, try a little bit more light on the faces, exactly the shadow on the faces now.
Notwithstanding that a very good portrait picture
Very well composition, lovely presentation.
Nice photo work, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,

this double portrait is beautiful and captivating, it emanates warmth and mystery. I like very much the young nuns' closeness (I first thought they were monks). They have a strong likeness and it's great that their eyes are at the same level, this accentuates the impact of their gazes. Despite their striking resemblance, their smiles and characters seem to differ. You used the light and the colours superbly creating a fine intimate atmosphere. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely weekend,
