In a noname village on Haiti
Haiti is located on the western third of the island of Hispaniola, which is after Cuba the second largest island in the Caribbean. The capital is Port-au-Prince. Is the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere, it is among the 30 poorest countries in the world. It suffers from overpopulation, impoverishment of broad sections of the people, it has poor hygienic conditions. Also you have here a high crime rate - often considered the "law of the jungle"

Hallo Achim. Hier hast Du eine sehr intime und emotionale Szene zwischen Mutter und Kind mit Deiner Kamera eingefangen. Wirklich sehr schön, - und auch farblich ansprechend. Hervorragend. Viele Grüße, Wolfgang.

You have captured well the loving exspression of the mother toward her child. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the clothing. The blurred background is putting in evidence the woman and the child. Have a nice day.

good daily scene scene...ot perhaps a nice portrait of the reality in Haiti. You selected a good depth with the blurred grass working perfectly as th4e background and the carefull mother in her daughter all in focus. Great one!

J'aime cette photo pour la relation mère enfant qu'elle illustre. Belles couleurs et beaucoup de grâce !
J'ai tenté un WS mais finalement je crois que ta version est la meilleure.

Olá Achim, what a contrast between the terrible informations of the note and this sweet moment of love between a mother and her daughter. Wonderful double portrait.
paololg (31446) 2009-12-09 13:43
Ciao dear Achim,
the hardness of your message in the note, unfortunately true, is contrasted by the sweetness of this mother in a gesture of love that has value more of any word. Thanks for this beautiful image, the world needs photo as this. Bravo!
Ciao, have a nice night!

Even by the faces of the people, we may see that they live in poor conditions.
But we can see also the love of mother, which is the same all over the world.
jmdias (48503) 2009-12-22 6:26
nice portrait showiung the care of the woman for her baby. nice light and colors. yes, it is sad some many people living under so bad conditions, without hope
maloutim (9505) 2009-12-27 6:36
Thanks for reminding us about the terrible situation of that country, where they have lived in a vicious circle since they were given their independence in 1804; too early probably, as the population had only known slavery before!
I am glad to see that picture though! It shows us that even in the poorest conditions, people can enjoy moments of happiness!
I like the sharpness of the two characters against the blurry green background! That also gives an optimistic note, as in Haïti, once the "pearl of the Antilles" a lot of the land is now bare of vegetation!
One can only hope that one day, someone will help them get out of this vicious circle!
TFS and all my best wishes for a Happy New Year!

so wird es in den Büchern gelehrt: die Gesichter von der Umgebung durch Schärfe und Helligkeit getrennt. Der Vergleich mit der Version von Jacques bringt für mich ein interessantes Ergebnis: Dein Bild betont eher die Mutter, Jacques dagegen das Kind, wobei beide von der Beziehung zwischen Mutter und Kind erzählt. Mir gefallen beides.
