Hmong Girl posing in a rice paddy. Not in the usual traditional clothing we often see on TE but in more modern clothes.
Traditional Hmong clothes are made by the ladies of the house for the whole family. It is a year long process from the growing and harvesting if the hemp to the production of the final product with the intricate silk needle work.
Seeing increasing numbers of Hmong in modern dress maybe a sign of change and increasing prosperity for the Hmong in and around Sapa.

Her position is perfect in front of this nicely blurred paddyfield and I like her pose with the wooden stick and her shy smile.
A pitty that the focus was not direct on her face.

A very nice photo here of this young lady with a wonderful face and smile. Even though she is in modern dress...it certainly does not take away from her charm. Very nicely done by you here.

This girl has such an angelic face. She pulls me in and I keep looking at her...I like the green background and her placement in the frame. In my opinion, the photo could use a bit more sharpness, and maybe some brightness, but it is such a lovely portrait. :-)
