Un portrait bien réalisé de cette jeune Thaïlandaise au regard presque interrogateur.Elle est parée de superbes bijoux bien rendus dans cette image.

What a beautiful girl love those eyes and so engaging to you lens, lots of detail on her feature and of course her lovely neckrings. Her eyes really make this picture and her wonderful expression, good clarity, colors and contasrt and above all the sharpness is crispy. Sincerely this portrait is too busy, you should consider using shallower depth of field to isolate her from all the nitty gritty in the background which has taken away viewer's attention. Anyhow you still have a very nice image here to be proud of.

this is a nice and interesting portrait ,showing traditions of this country (the neckrings,the make-up on her face).The colors are beautiful,and this is perfectly framed.
I have red your conversation with Abmdsudi,it's true that it's better to be alone.I travel with my friend,but when we want to do some pictures,we separate for a moment.This is the best,especially to photograph people,and to wait for their best expression.I prefer when they don't pose,when they are natural.For the depth of field,it was difficult here to do better,as the background is very near the woman,it's quite impossible to get a blur wall.Anyway,the portrait is very beautiful.

We see a lot of portraits of these tribes ouside Chiang Mai! Do you have to pay for taking these pictures?
Couple of things I might wish in this otherwise fine portrait - a shallower DOF to isolate her from the BG (you can still use photoshop for blurring the BG...I'll try a workshop when i get some time) & secondly some contrast boost for her.
But as I said before, an otherwise nice, soft portrait!
