Here is close up of a very simple portrait of a friendly young Black Hmong mother -from earlier posting- taken at Lao Chai village. As I shaped to take the shot, she looked up so there was momentary yet spontaneous eye contact but not a flicker of a smile.
Such was her intense concentration lost in thoughts.
I let her eyes do all the talking here...

Another portrait jewel, well taken at the decisive moment, when she is relax and not posing. The black BG enhances the vivid colors of her cloth, acting as in a studio.

An excellent portrait! There are many colours and interesting details here. He looks really proud to be on TE, yet he seems to be unaware of being pictured.

colorful and luminous close up portrait of this serious woman
A razor sharp shot on an excellent black BG
Have a nice WE, best regards

a very well framed portrait which isolates the subject from every hint of environment and focuses on her intriguing face and expression. You have made ingenious use of the colours, both bright and dark ones, that frame the young woman's face. The bright colours brighten up the picture and are very attractive but surprisingly don't distract from her face and glance at all. I like very much the steadiness of her glance, her expression is confident and obscure at the same time. It's wonderful you brought us in contact with her. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely weekend,

a stunning portrait, with a serious expression yet you connected to the women in short moment anyway. I love the uncluttered background and the strong colors.
have a good weekend

Another excellent portrait, this time with a serious expression and an interesting, almost worn look. Despite the brightness of the clothes, they look like they have seen far better days, which gives some texture to the shot. The dark background really helps her to stand out here - very nicely exposed.

Hi Abmdsudi !!
Very powerful portrait..... good dark background to enhance the bright colours.
ahmet54 (3165) 2012-10-06 3:26
your a master of portrait-photo. I like that look. It seems she is not looking at you, but somewhere into the far distance.
krzychu30 (15512) 2012-10-06 5:22
the title tells everything.It´s all about her look,her face expression.It´s so expressive and meaningful,that other features of the picture,even if they´re very good,like excellent contrast or colors seems less important in comparison with her telling and meaningful look.It seems you chose the best timing to capture this scene.It´s really well framed.Fabulous portrait!I´m impressed.
Have a nice weekend

Exposure and clarity was excellent.
danos (96059) 2012-10-07 2:30
nice the portrait of the native man with his glance to look so strait to your lens.The colours of his cloths are well captured as the clarity of the image.
ciakgiak (30429) 2012-10-07 4:06
Ti stai specializzando nelle foto-ritratto, questo ne é un esempio molto eloquente.
La luce e l'esposizione sono gestite in maniera ottimale, ed unite alla bellissima espressione della ragazza hanno generato un'immagine davvero emozionante.
Un caro abbraccio

Good portrait with sad eyes. Perfect taken! Superb presentation! Congratulations!
All the best!
bayno (18344) 2012-10-09 6:54
the expression of this woman is indecipherable, very cold, or very serious, or perhaps embarrassed, like most Orientals very difficult to interpret, the colors are gorgeous and the definition perfect, the black background emphasizes the subject...
nikkitta (17066) 2012-10-09 16:59
Perfectly well done portrait, was very good she looked at you at the right moment
Nice pink color at the scarf and incredible earrings, like also the black at the BG
Greetings and TFS

un regard lointain bien saisi, ces grandes bouches d'oreilles avec ces vêtements relax , un peu sportif, très colorées ressorti par le fond noir
adramad (44296) 2012-10-10 8:03
Superb portrait of great ethnographic value, to show the features and decorations of this woman, the sharpness is fabulous and allows us to see in detail textures and shades, great color and sharpness level to complete this magnificent work.

A pictute with (as always) a great light management
and composition. The black backgrounds makes the
picture nice calmness, but it makes also the
picture extra exciting and makes the colors of her
