I will be leaving for Nepal this afternoon. Not until I post this picture of an adorable little girl taking a bath in a canal in Kanchanburi.
This is actually a picture of life. She was full of it...the colours red and green evoke feelings of happiness...and the water splash reverberates the dynamic nature of LIFE.
I hope I would carry with me the same inspiration in Nepal. See you after a week.

Simply beautiful, tender and refreshing.

Superb Manny. her closed eyes bring even a special aura of gentle delicacy to her face. Great lesson of expression photography, all the more so because it is created by you at a moment that will never happen again quite in the same way.
I hope your trip to Nepal will bring us more magical captures from you.

Superbe action que tu as capturé là.
Le mouvement est très bien figé et ces goutes d'eau que l'on retrouve un peu partout c'est magnifique.
Very ncie shot.

Hi Manuel, Absolutely stunning how you managed to capture this fantastic gesture of the girl splashing water over her. The sharpness is impressive on her face as well as in the movement of the water. The expression of happiness and joy as she feels the water on her skin is indeed full of life and a very precious moment. Simply magnificent! Sabine
kclai (2267) 2005-10-24 2:58
Bon voyage and hope to see beautiful images from Nepal.
This is a very adorable and interesting shot. Yeah, the little girl is full of life and with water splashing onto her makes it more beautifully rendered.
Cool work, Manuel.

Another wonderful image, I love the expression of the kid and the water frozen
Happy New Year
alina (403) 2006-01-05 16:33
This is an incredible photograph. I just cant find the right words to write... I am speechless...
iGirl (1223) 2006-01-31 14:11
Beautiful colors, and I love the way the light shines on the girl's skin and the water! But I wish I could see it cropped a little less closely. The edge of the head just barely touching the left edge of the photo bothers me. I usually prefer to have photo elements either not touching the edge at all or being definitely cropped off--not just barely touching the edge. Still, a wonderful picture!
kajspice (4542) 2006-02-09 17:15
I am absolutely mesmorised by this image. She looks very pure and makes the water look so clean and fresh. Its making me thirsty.
onmax (849) 2006-04-27 23:04
Hola, excelente captura, el colore, los detalles, la luz, los tonos, el foco, la nitidez, muy buen trabajo,felicitaciones.
osh (402) 2006-05-08 22:05
well done for sucha wonderful capture, the girl really looks like she's enjoying her bath.
nixie (7) 2006-05-15 3:36
What perfect timing!
I saw an angel in your picture. I was being enchanted by her happy face in a few in a short while.
Smoothness in water goes well with her smile.
aralda (1240) 2006-06-22 12:37
Fantastic splash you got here. To me the girl's head seems a little oversized for some reason, but the expression on her face as she's bathing herself is beautiful. The colors also work great, but the water splash is what makes this photo superb!
Anita16 (41) 2006-11-12 18:38
I have been looking through your photos for over a half hour now and each one is just as incredible or even better than the previous, so I have the dilemma of which picture to actually comment on. This is it. There is so much truth and quite a bit of sadness in your photos because of the places you have gone and the people you have come across, but this photo brings me pure joy! I love it! The bold green and vibrant red truly DO evoke happiness, and your point of view is wonderful. So thank you very much for sharing and please continue to do what you are so talented and passionate about!!!
Talia (242) 2007-05-11 23:46
simply precious! stellar exposure and wonderful captured moment!

zahoor_salmi (1053) 2008-09-22 2:49

Good luck with your next projects!
