This cute girl of Kurdish origin has told me her story. But when she noticed my camera, she tried o mask her face with her henna painted hands.
Midyatlı bu küçük kürt kızı bana hikayesini anlattı sonrada resmini çekeceğimi hissedince de kınalı elleri ile yüzünü saklamaya çalıştı.

This is a great portrait. Although she is posing - whether she likes it or not - her expression and her hands make her totally spontaneous and natural. I am not sure if she is upset or just nervous of your camera. Her henna painted hands add charm and "local flavour" to the portrait. She was well placed against a very good neutral background and the light and sharpness are perfect.

Great portrait with fresh and natural expression on the girl's face. Her henna-painted hands create a strong sense of place by introducing an element of local culture.

A great portrait. And as Gert says above, by trying to hide her face, she has created an even more interesting pose. I was wondering of the color on her hands, I thought perhaps she was dying clothes. The tight framing on this works brilliantly well.

Excellent portrait of great naturalness and spontaneity. The expression on the girl's face adds great charm to the picture. Beautiful colours and sharpness with her blue dress providing nice colour contrast.
Thanks for sharing and have a nice Sunday.

beautiful portrait, her expression is not your usual "camera flirting" and that makes it all the more interesting. I like the way the henna painting adds drama to her young hands.
Somehow I can picture her as a grown woman, she has one of those faces that seem already projected in the future...

I was wondering what was going on with her hands!
glad you added that into the note.
its a strange facial expression, is she sad? upset?
really appreciate the close up portrait.
nice post of this innocent girl

Bon portrait de cette jeune fille. On se demande si c'est sa situation qui la rend triste ou si elle a pris cette pose pour t'apitoyer?

bellissimo ritratto, molto espressivo e ben riportato sulla tua foto.
Viene voglia di parlare con questa giovane donne, sentire la sua storia, i suoi sogni, la sua realtà.

I think this is the second portrait of this girl that you've posted. And why not? Her expression, hand-gestures and reluctant eye-contact are all beautifully captured. I'd have snapped away too!

Nice captured of the young girl, hands painted and holding her head.
Face expression and details shown beautifully, though, I can't "read" her expression - looks to me she did not go easy with the camera.
My opinion merely.
Have a nice new day,

Hello dear Mesut,
a wonderful portrait of a lovely girl who is not used to being a photographer's subject. Her attitude is very interesting and her contact with the photographer and the viewer is fascinating. Her glance is intense and takes a lot of interpretations, I also like how she's framed her expressive face with her hands. Colours and sharpness are magnificent. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely afternoon,
