A boy in Kanchanaburi. He belongs to the Mon minority group and as you can see from his face, he had some thanaka on. He was swimming in the nearby canal and I asked him to stay where he was as I liked the way the leaves and the light framed him.
Have a good weekend everyone. Mine here in Asia is to finish soon.

Great image, very artistic, tough to expose. I love the spark in his eyes.

Beautiful sharp image of this smiling face. Catching him peeping out of the leaves make for a spendid and beautiful composition.

Cute expression and I do like the shadowplay on his face. I don't think you could do much about it, but the dynamic range on this is too high. Too many areas are too black even though I would say his face is overexposed. It might be due to the overexposure, a missed WB or perhaps post processing, but his skin also looks kind of gray to me. I really like the catchlights in his eyes.
