Picture of humble farmers walking home taken about 30km north west of Sapa. Candid shot can be fun as depicted here, I was riding a motor bike behind them a distance away on a late almost diffuse afternoon along this remote place on my usual photo hunting trip when I spotted the opportunity capturing her spontaneously when she made a glance look.
This is the result, from one of the quick burst of successive shots that followed as the subjects were constantly moving away from focus plane.......

I like also your tight frame combined with so well achieved bokeh.
Beauitful and very expressive image!

Another excellent snapshot. The women are in superb light, nice clarity. You have captured it in golden moment, when the woman turned face toward your camera.
The tight crop, and the blurred BG is perfect.
Very well done.

J'aime beaucoup cette image. C'est comme si tu avais développé une complicité avec la dame qui se retourne et te souris juste au bon moment. Une belle page de la vie quotidienne.

Great shot of two women walking back home from work. Nice expression of the smiling face one of them and colorful kerchiefs on their heads. These women probable work very hard because they are carring huge baskets.
Good quality picture of daily life with perfect colors, light and sharpness.
Have a nice weekend,

another nice piece of daily life is here. I like the turn and look of the lady at right. Great use of shallow DOF. Excellent blurred background which is contrasting nicely with those rich colours of their dresses. Excellent work. Tfs.

Dobar dan, popodne.
Lep pogled i trenutak ...
Dobar trenutaks nimka, ostrina i kontrast, lepo pokazane zene sa korpama na ledjima, lepe boje.
Tezak je zivot na selu, radi se od jutra do mraka.
Lepo popodne i sve najbolje za vikend, srecno.
Good afternoon, this afternoon.
Nice view and a second ...
Good time recording, sharpness and contrast nicely shown women with baskets on their backs, beautiful colors.
It's a tough life in the village, working from morning to night.
Nice afternoon and all the best for the weekend, good luck.

This snapshot is very nice, these women are surprised with your camera, the face is sharp and the BG is blurred, well done

I like the glance she is giving you. She seems to be wondering who is coming behind them and now she found out that it was just another one of those tourists. It's a nice snapshot with a very natural and spontaneous atmosphere and fine colours. Were you actually riding the bike at this moment, or had you stopped to take a few shots? Then I guess it was the end of the noise that startled her.

how effectively you used the opportunity, your picture has the intensity of a spontaneous capture and is exquisitely laid out in a tight frame too. There's great interaction among the ladies and the viewer. I like very much how the ladies share the entire frame, how the stand out against the route they're following and how their postures (and maybe their personalities too) complement each other. Wonderful colour management and a steady and intriguing glance to captivate the viewer. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great weekend,

A really commendable result, as I read you note, so many elements conspired against you here, the distance, the focus, and above all you were on a motorbike! What an amazing result to get in these circumstances. In fact, what a cool picture to get in any circumstances. This ladies furtive glance is fascinating creating a really great portrait, while you have filled the frame here perfectly and with great skill to the shape of the final image.
As ever, thanks for sharing.

Hello Abmdsudi ,
Excellent tight framing of these two farmers carrying typical baskets . The glance is a real bonus .
Superb tecnical quality , as usual .
Romano46 (18472) 2014-03-22 3:14
la qualità delle tue foto di ritratto è sempre ottima e questa tua ultima proposta non fa eccezione.
Colori belli e saturi e sfondi che non disturbano mai il soggetto sono le principali caratteristiche dell'opera.
Nitidezza sempre eccezionale.
Ciao e buon fine settimana
Didi (60588) 2014-03-22 9:17
The weather looks cold
Interesting quicq catch with a nice selective DOF setting
Interesting opposite position of the two girls

Une prise instantanée bien capturer au bon moment, la dame qui ce retourne tout en affichant un sourire sympathique vers vous, j'aime leurs tenues similaires, et toujours de très jolies couleurs, belle réalisation
adramad (45684) 2014-03-22 13:38
Magnified image of these two women, and a great asset to have been captured so fast on a motorcycle, the sympathetic expression of this woman, who turns his face curiously, their colorful scarves put a cheerful touch to the image.
Very good brightness and sharpness, also the beautiful color.
Enjoy the weekend.
eldancer1 (36343) 2014-03-23 5:45
Great timing and capture of those beautiful smile from this woman. As in great photograph timing is everything. I like the soft lighting. Good details with wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.

This is a super very colourful image of these lady's carrying their wares, home.
You just captured the right moment as she takes a cheeky glimpse as to what you are doing.

such a great daily life image, very warm and sincere. I admire the way you always manage to spot people in most eye-catching clothes and capture them in the most attractive fashion:) Wonderful image, my compliments!
Have a great week!
COSTANTINO (65302) 2014-03-25 7:03

a motor bike behind them taking
this shot the right timing
the success is when one of both
women made a glance look

nikkitta (17066) 2014-03-27 15:50
Good capture of the women with nice colorful scarves that seem to come from Scotland (dessins), how good and quick were you capturing the instant one of them turn back and witha half smile
As usual good blure BG
Well done, regards

Hi abmdsudi dear
Well-documented and fascinating portraits. She looked strong and effective. Look curious, shy, witty. Perform well in harsh conditions.
