Another shot, taken during her South African dancing. I'm really new for portrait, hope that I could get some comments for my improvement.
Thanks for looking.

I love this shot! A fantastic portrait, you have managed to capture the joy, she is just glowing!
Great depth in colours and focus is perfect.

very nice, very joyful portrait, great green color in the background, and all colors are great. I also like her hand in the foreground too.. I wish she was looking more in your direction though.
anyway, I like it a lot, very nice picture

Great portrait shot. Lovely colors and great expression. I cannot think of anything that I would change.

This is very beautiful Din. The blur of the hand makes the shot dynamic. The colours are wonderful. The depth is also perfect.

Well captured moment, I like the bright colours of her headwear and jewellery and of course, that infectious smile! Great shot.

Very interesting and colorful subject. Beautiful smile and many great African details. Excellent timing and framing – I especially like how her left hand in the foreground creates the feeling of the dance...
Very-very well captured – I like this shot a lot.

Well, for being new in portrait you are doing extremely well!! The colors are a feast for the eye and so is the expression of her face. Excellent job.

Great portrait, Din. Maybe I would prefer to see the whole turban, nevertheless this is a nice picture. I like so sharp details - turban, hair and necklaces - and colors. I really like it.

Very nice portrait of an active subject. Your exposure is perfect. Nothing blown out, yet there are lots of details visible in her dark face. Great expression you have caught as well. Your composition is good, although I wish you had either not cropped the top of her headware, or you had aimed slightly more to the left, giving more room on the left, while cropping to about her shoulder....I usually like tight crops when the crop is tight on at least two edges, not just one. Anyways, this is a really great shot, with lots of vibrancy and life to it.

Un sourire, de la vie, des belles couleurs comment ne pas dire que cette photo est reussi ?
Le seul petit defaut c'est le haut de foulard est coupé mais pour le reste c'est du très bon !

You are displaying a great skill in portraits, Din. This one is even stronger than the previous one. It looks very vivid and joyful; I like the profile kind of view and the very strong colors. The motion blur of the hand is an added plus. Excellent!

I like this shot: vibrant face, vibrant colors, good DOF, it is almost perfect. My suggestion is to add more space at the left to see more of what's in front of here. I will also venture for a close up shot. But anyway Din, this is the best portrait shots I've seen today.

Great, detailed, and colorful portrait. Except for the motion blur, it's a fine piece.

Nice portrait, Din... I am not specialist in portrait too... but this one seems nice. What is fine is the smile of that African girl. Well done!

Improvement of what ?... ;-)
Maybe I'm not the right person to see defaults in a portrait, as I do not yet practise them.
All I can say as a viewer is 'congratulations'. It wouldn't have been stronger if somebody has written the word 'hapiness' on her face. Her smile is incredible, communicating. You really captured the right moment, with a terrific sharpness and a great DOF.
Excellent to me, Din.

Beautiful color and portrait....congrats!

Vibrant, joyful expression. The motion of the hand nicely conveys the motion of the dance while her face is crisp. A terrific action portrait, but I would have liked the top of the head included.
