Un comportement tellement typique de cette chaleureuse et gentille population de l'Asie du sud est
Les mains qui disent "Non" par timidité et réserve naturelle
Les yeux rieurs qui pétillent et un grand sourire qui disent "oui" pour le plaisir d'être pris en photo
Et quand on montre l'image sur l'écran, çà finit le plus souvent par un grand éclat de rire et un instant de joyeuse connivence entre le photographe et le sujet !
Such a typical behavior of these gentle and hearty people from south east Asia !
Hands that say "NO" most often by mere shyness
Laughting and sparkling eyes to say "YES" for the pleasure of being photographed
And when one shows the image on the monitor, it often ends with a general burs of laughing and an instant of joyful complicity between the photographer and his subject as well as the whole audience

This picture captures quite well the pleasantness and human warmth of most people in Vietnam and its neighbouring countries. I love her blurred hands and broad smile. The green wall provides a good background too.

This is really awesome shot! Indeed, her face with a beautiful smile says something different than her hands here but it makes the scene really interesting and attractive. Very well taken image with superb sense of timing. Like it!

Wonderfully joyful shot, Patrick! You're right that her eyes and smile say it all here, the hands becoming a joking gesture. A really warm and friendly portrait.

Hi Patrick. An animated image filled with the spirit of the subject. The smile is precious and the blurred hands busily creating a wall between you and her are symbolic in their lack of presence of any strong objection (as your note says). I love the details of the fabrics and the colours. Amicalement. Klaudio.

Joli titre pour cette excellente réalisation photographique. Très bon choix de vitesse (au 1/80s, elle devait drôlement les agiter ses mains!!!) qui donne beaucoup de spontanéité au portrait.

Ta note résume bien la situation, mais les yeux rieurs l'emportent dur les mains floues. Belle utilisation de la vitesse lente!

Awesome capture of this woman and I like use of slow speed to blur her hands. Great smile. Good lighting and dof with nice details. Well done, tfs.
delpeoples (54083) 2013-05-07 1:06
What a delightful photo! And how clever you were to slow the shutter speed down like that in order to blur the shake of her hands. You are quite right about her smile and laughing eyes. What a sweetheart and you have captured that beautifully. If I was her, I'd be delighted with a photo of myself of this quality.

Actually a simple creative photo, but few people
makes them (many people (including me) can learn
from it). Effect is Obvious: you can feel the
movement. The light management and the composition
Gigidusud (17277) 2013-05-08 15:13
Une scène de vie bien capturée avec un bel effet de mouvement. Bravo!

Great notes, nO means yeS in certain parts of Asia!! What an excitement when the lens is being focused by those eyes and the genuine laugh. It is amazing that she
has such a pleasant expression, timely shot so nicely and the direct look is captivating forces our eyes to also glance at the blurs. A joyful and this image fills one's soul for sure. Superb capture. TFS

What a great portrait!
I like the sense of movement! - we can see her hat through the waving hands. And you framed her smiling face perfectly. A perfect focus and a fantastic and sincere smile, so typical from Asia. Great work!
Wanda1 (15000) 2013-05-18 2:13
I love this one! it is so quintessentially Vietnam. The blur of her vigorously waving hands is fabulous and of course her large friendly smile lights up the whole shot.
jcpix (13724) 2013-05-21 20:09
Love the title, certainly fitting for the contradiction expressed. :) A wonderful capture which displays two sides of emotion, not to mention a great exposure to reflect motion and liveliness. This has a lot of character appeal, mainly due to the big smile and fun moment seized. The focus is spot on with a delightful depth of field to make it all the more intimate. Thanks for sharing a beautiful image. Bonne journee.
All the best,

Very nice portrait of this smiling lady... and a good idea, well managed, to use a time long enough to see the moving hands.
