This little girl was looking a bit bored but when she saw me pointing the camera at her she could not make her mind up whether to smile or not.
Cette petite fille semblait un peu triste et quand elle apercevait mon attention elle ne savait pas qui faire, de sourire ou non.

What absolutely gorgeous big eyes this young girl has! She will break a few hearts with them when she's older, I'm sure.
There's something incredibly interesting and attractive about a face like this when you're not sure if the person is smiling or not. Quite disquieting too. I'm reminded of the "Mona Lisa" who has the same sort of expression.
But you have caught this girl's expression perfectly to produce an irresistible photograph.

Hi Aleks. A lovely, sensitive portrait of a vajza Shqiptare. Her eyes remind me of my grandmother's portrait when she was a young woman and had that same dreamy gaze, sort of here and far away at the same time. She was of Albanian lineage, an Arbanashka. Very fine work. One day I must see the beautiful Berat. Best wishes. Klaudio.

Good morning Aleks,
nice the portrait of the little girl with her huge eyes and the bored glance to looks at your camera so curious.I like the B/W format as the excellent light management.
Have a good day,Danos

This fine portrait has probably gained from the b&w conversion. Now there's nothing to distract us from the girl's beautiful eyes and her generally dreamy look. Obviously she must be aware of the camera but I can't figure out how you made her pose like this, like she couldn't care less about you, lost in her dreans.
A splendid portrait that anyone could be proud of. I hope she has received a copy.

C'est un portrait tout mignon et si tu la revois Aleks a Berat ne manque pas de lui offrir ce temoignage de son enfance en cadeau. Desfois je le fais ici et c'est un plaisir partage. Tres content de ce cliche, amicalement,

This child has the face of an angel, with a curious expression. I like the close crop, and her big eyes. She actually reminds me of my niece in a way. I also like the framing on the left side. Very nice! :-)
