Somewhere in the middle of nowhere in the hillcounty of the centre of Sri Lanka we were taking a short brake and a few curious boys joined us with a lot of questions.
Always a good moment to wait for a good moment to make a portrait. The light was very good - the sun was hiding behind the clouds.

une excellente netteté sur le visage de garçon.Le fond noyé par une bonne gestion de la DOF met parfaitement en valeur ce portrait.

A fine portrait. As you say, the indirect light was very good. I guess he was aware of you taking his photo but too cool (or shy) to watch the camera, which was quite fortunate. His shirt is remarkable. It looks like he's wearing his best clothes.

Curious face and eyes.
Good frame and colors.

good portrait with the young boy on a pose that makes us think a bit of his life as his smile doesn't transmit a sense of hapiness so typical of the young kids.
The exposure and focus are spot on!

Een groot portret van dit kind met zijn verlegen glimlach.
Ik hou van de groene achtergrond onscherp meer doen om de contouren van zijn gezicht te benadrukken.
Uitstekende licht en details.
Met vriendelijke groet,

This is a fine and very natural portrait. You have caught the light in his eyes and the tones of his skin very well. A well chosen DOF has given a very good background that does not interfere.

My compliments for this portrait! The boy is well positioned in the frame and I like his sweet expression. A good BG as well as it gave more impact to your model. Light, colour/contrast/sharpness are just fine ;D
All the best

A very good portrait of this young lad, who has a ne expressive face. The image is well lit and has a good range of tones and excellent sharpness. Happy Christmas.

Excellent "street" portrait, with dark neutral and natural background making your subject stand out nicely.
Sharp and clean job!
