While exploring streets of Saigon, I noted this girl sitting on the motorbike and staring in eternity ;)

I like the photo:) the focus and the POV are very good. You captured the right moment. Good portrait! but we will never know what the girl is thinking about...

What's I really really love in your picture, it's the natural colors of your shot and exposure for me is PERFECT...
For me, the best way to exploit this shot is to crop it because unfortunately you don't take all the motobike to reinforce shooting...
I propose very simple crop which according to me attract more our eyes through the look of this young girl.

Well taken. I would go for the whole bike though. I remembers the wires over the streets in Hanoi, likewise here. Portraits with no posing are the best. You managed to catch one here, well done.
Apart from the picture it would be great if I could read a bit more about your thoughts in the Photographer's notes. Even a short story about the picture and the ambience.

Excellent HCMC shot. Lovely desaturated look and perfect dof. This would make a terrific cover for a novel, though I guess the ultimate contemporary HCMC novel still has to be written.
