Hi Jan, very interesting, those lines on her face are really unusual and very well captured on your portrait. The colors are really superb. Thanks for sharing and have a nnice weekend! alex

This is simply a stunning portrait. The vibrant colours of the beadwork and shawl really pop out, while the wrinkles and pouting expression make the person an intriguing subject. The tonal range is also pretty good, although there are some areas (the forehead and beads) that are slightly overexposed probably due to the harsh sun in Africa. A little burning would do.

This is a lovely portrait of the old woman, full of interest and colour. Her features are very interesting, reflecting a lot of character. I'm sure those expressive eyes have seen many things during her life in Africa. The beads, earrings and colurful clothing provide a good insight into the dress of the Masai tribe. Well captured.

Wonderful and very touching portrait of this exotic woman.
I love how U positioned her in the frame and her unique expression.
Maybe the light was too harsh??
Anyway this is a great portrait!!
