Kids are always great subjects to shoot and fun to work with not only because they are able to give us lots of expressions on their faces but they also amazingly manage to look quite similar universally no matter what conditions! This lovely Red Dzao kid - probably ten years old now- was so absorbed looking deep into my lens when shutter was released from some distance with an aperture full open allowing me to register his facial features. Off course I love the innocence's impressive hear gear - as part of the traditional dress code, his ethnic profile, vibrant colors and his suspicious apprehension......
The afternoon was slight cloudy in a small hamlet in Tha Phin about 15km from Sa Pa, home to some colourful and flamboyant ethnic Red Dzao hill tribe. Since migrating from China in the XIX th century, the RD people have become one of the largest ethnic groups in Vietnam living across the far north in the mountains not far from the Chinese border. The colours and the people of this place are part of the unforgettable experience of visiting this cool peaceful remote place as well as being lucky to catching some memorable shots.
Hope the look in his face leads to a good life.....

A very cute little boy and a very attractive picture with perfect sharpness and strong colours. A very fine and interesting traditional dress.

The title says it all. No need to add much more :-)
However I should mention the excellent light and the well treated colours, as well as the perfect eye-contact you established with this little boy. This is also very nicely cropped, cutting off any possibly disturbing elements in the background. Yes, this is adorable.

Hello Abmdsudi - Who could not fall in love with those wide and innocent eyes. There is an immediate connection with the child as he gazes into your lens. Beautiful skin tones contrast with the colourful cap and the catch-lights in his eyes give life to the portrait.

Un titre parfait pour le beau portrait de ce petit garçon au beau couvre-chef.
Romano46 (16576) 2014-04-23 2:34
c'è poco da aggiungere alla foto ed al titolo che gli hai dato: infatti è adorabile sia il bambino ritratto che la tua foto che coglie nel suo viso una espressione di dolcezza.
Impeccabile nella ripresa e nei colori.
Ciao e buona giornata

Children is a wonderful subject for take a portrait, but in Belgium a little bit dangerous through the a lot scandals in past.
A very nice portrait.
Composition and presentation are pleasant to look at.
Very well done, TFS.

You're capturing well this portrait by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see cute/pure little child with clean eyes and wearing the traditional hat. The whole is harmonized well by a good color combination.

Great portrait of this child, you certainly have a great ability to capture these expressions so natural, I love how you captured the intensity of his gaze, the wool cap with these very vibrant colors, is a great point of attraction.
Very nice colorful tones very effective.
Good management of light and good sharpness.
Splendid image. My compliments.
Have a nice day.
All the best.

What a cute y even with a runny nose.
Super colours, especially his hat.
Great close up, well managed, Top marks.
ourania (25320) 2014-04-24 6:52
I think this portrait is marvelous and I like it very much. The child's diagonal posture in the tight vertical frame is graceful and enhances the captivating intensity of his gaze. The side light is so soft and lovely, it brings out wonderful natural tones and textures. An adorable little boy, I love the playful way his hat frames his face. Your experience in this kind of photography and your interaction with your little model has produced a very fine result. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely day,

What a delightful photo. This little fellow is just adorable, as your title says. I love the shy look he gives you and how close he has allowed you to get. Obviously a sign that he likes and trusts you. The catch-lights in his eyes are magical and finish the photo perfectly.
Warmest wishes, thanks for sharing
