Something quite different than your "used" themes but topclass.
Very good pov and layout.
And those eyes !! They tell so many stories.
TFS and best regards

Possibly this old woman once was as beautiful as many of the girls you have shown us in some of the ceremonies and festivals. We don't really want to think of ourselves as old and weak and handicapped. This is a remarkble portrait, very touching.

There's a wonderful sense of both strength and frailty here, Takero. This woman would have every excuse to simply fade away in her difficult condition, yet she forges ahead. There's still some sharpness in those old eyes, it looks like. Wonderful light from above creates an almost religious quality to this as well.

a very moving image of an elderly lady who still retains the brightest of eyes despite her advancing years.
A most emotive photograph.Beautiful.

sono passati un pò di anni, chissà come se la passa la donna.
Bello il forte contrasto tra la donna con il suo abbigliamento e la chiave appesa al collo così moderna.

Sharp and vivid eyes though the hands of time seem heavy on the rest of this lady's body.
Obviously your timing was perfect...The outcome is quite impressive.
All the settings seem well balanced...bravo.
All the best

wow, this one may just be one of your best.
you are so correct about capturing the woman's eye.
that for sure is the main highlight...the viewer can't help but feel captivated and drawn to her.

This is a remarkable portrait from Vietnam. The framing and DOF are perfect. She has excellent eye contact with you. The touch of pink around her waist adds an excellent splash of colour.
Very well done.
Kind Regards, Ann

Hi Takero, She looks very old and tired. The eyes are very impressive. Strange dress. You need to go somewhere for holidays, you miss travelling :)

ça nous change complètement l'univers de tes photos.
Une très vieille femme, sans fard, sans aucun embellissement, dans sa vérité absolue, dans sa vieillesse et pourtant si belle et noble. Avec ce regard de toute sa vie.
Très belle photo.
Toujours avec beaucoup d'amitié pour toi,

I can see why here eyes remain in your memory, her gaze is very piercing and intense, and despite her age and frailty, burns bright with life. This is a very brilliant capture, of a very unique woman. Thanks for sharing this, a shot for the ages!
All the best

Hello dear Takero,
a very special and captivating picture of the strong and fragile, weak and dignified elderly lady. You have approached her with great interest and care for her character and life and are presenting her now to us in a superb picture. Your composition is impressive. You have isolated her from the background and the way her face and glance are framed by her hand, stick and hand accentuates its intrigue and our fascination. The lighting makes her skin and eyes look almost transparent. A magnificent photo, congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely weekend,

Great portrait of a very old woman in traditional clothes of mountaineers from Vietnam. You can see that poor woman, life, age and hard work bent to the ground. Why up to old age could not be healthy. Death for me is natural and understandable enough infirmity - which is something hard for me to accept. Superb image quality.
mauro61 (52623) 2012-11-18 10:23
una bella immagine di questa anziana donna china sotto il peso degli anni.
Immagini che toccano sempre per la tenerezza che riescono a trasmettere,
bravo amico mio
