What a wonderful natural smile,typical burmese with thanaka!
It`s a great portrait of this beautiful Rakhine woman/girl and good composition with this bamboo fence in the background.
Have a great easter weekend,

Wonderful smile of this girl with thanaka! No doubt it is a Burmese girl. She is beautiful and full of joy. I was also enchanted with the Burmese people. I like the composition here, with the blurred wall in the bg.

Excellent compo and a fine subject, maybe a bit darkish? I tried to give it a bit more "punch" in a WS, hope you like it!

Un très joli portrait de cette superbe jeune femme au sourire ravageur.J'aime ton cadrage décalé, l'excellent choix de la profondeur de champ, la netteté sur le visage et l'arrière plan judicieusement flouté mais qui situe bien l'endroit. Du beau travail!

I wonder if the colors are not a little bit too bluish, but I wanted to say that it's anyway a very beautiful portrait of charming young woman.I love each details, her hait, her tanaka, her smile,her colors of clothes, and she is placed on a superb background.

Impossible to ignore Elaine,such a smile,I dont know about the joy,one can never look into the head or behind the smile of the average Asian ;+].
You did very well ,because the light circumstances arent perfect.

A splendid and charming portrait. I like her beautiful smile and the contrast with the lines made by the thanaka that looks like tears. A perfect blured BG and, I agree with Laurent, this portrait is more beautiful with a bit more of light and boost.

I like the capture of this smiling girl roaming the street with wet compact still visible and ready to be rubbed later on. Excellent focus and beautifully silenced background in the frame.
Thanks and kind regards.

How could you think of painting such a beautiful face capture?
You have managed to capture every nuance of the lady's expression.

As you say, simple, but sometimes simple is best. The latticed background makes this interesting. I agree with the others who prefer a lighter version, but as with all things it's important not to overdo. Well done!
