elections of Miss Amazonia in Aguarico, selva region in Ecuador.
---Beacuse of comment below I am going to copy my note from photo "chica caliente":
"Women are most interesting part of travelling in Latin American countries.So I am going to go on the edge of TE rules and post women's portraits."
This is a reportage photo presenting public event in a exotic location, showing ethnic model in a ethnic style dress. Banning it just beacuse there is a part of woman body would be an act of unimaginable hypocrisy
If you know them well you probably know that there might be more tribes whose typical outfit is now a second hand t-shirt than a waistcloth. Those girls ten years ago were running around naked, but now, thanks to petrol company paying for exploiting Huarani land have become very fond of good brought in by Colombian clothes salesmen.

I very like the girl Swjatek and also her feathers, but the composition could be better.

The guidelines say: "Nude photographs are NOT permitted unless it is intrinsically related to an event ie regional festival, daily living etc." This photo is (a) related to an event, and (b) not nude. Thanks for posting it.

well, from what i know about amazonian indigenous people, strange is this underwear in... silk?
the pic is pretty fine. colors are intense, sunlight is rather intense as well in those latitudes...

Sometimes it could be very difficult to post photos like this. Especially if the photo contained intimate parts of the human body. It could be just as difficult taking this shot even if the event was coming from public or traditional presentation. Some cultures or traditions could be pretty extreme or abnormal by "general" standard and take some doing/effort to understand them. Maybe it wouldn't be so difficult or bad if there wasn't anything called pornography, or anything related to it, existed.

I like this photo for the sex appeal it can give to a man.
Colors, and really interesting tenue.
Read the TE TOS, I don't see any violation of it. If your eyes can not stand this, switch off your computer and do not use anymore internet, neither travel :-D

Beautiful shot, Swiatek !
Bright colours and smart body.
But maybe you should have given the vision of the whole person.

i like this as it is..
this is another fine reportage shot from you ..
your focus is on the underwear.. a different composition including the rest of the girl as well, would have diverted the focus elsewhere..
also kudos to you for having used the flash so well here..
i love the red glow and blur around her skin.. i guess the shutter speed was slow.. do you remember what it was?? was it 1/30 seconds???
also do you remember the aperture size and the iso?? was this the inbuilt camera flash??
i can't help asking you so many questions.. this is one thing that i really have been wanting to try out.. but i hardly get to see good flashworks around.. this reminds me of david alan harvey's work
take care :)

I can hardly see how this violates any of the TOS. It's a great shot, without any nudity or exploitation. Fantastic use of colour. Well done!

heh, nice underwear

Beautiful dreamtheatre colours. Love the cabaret of neon colours captured, and of course the exotica curves and customes. Choice of composition is done elegantly, without subtracting the sexy/ kinky sensation. Well done there!

a very intimate & erotic piece of work for the sack of festival.
klyee75 (778) 2005-08-17 20:32
ya ya...I agreed with you Chris...save the parrots! anyway that's what guys like to see all this. Interesting panty

Controversial photo eh ?
I love it. I think the colours look great.
Makes you want to see her face...

Wow, a semi naked woman!
Its interesting (not really) how photos of tits and arses seems to get the most attention from all you so called experts.
I think we should reframe from using semi pornographic images (there are other sites you can go to for that)
And be a little more original and inventive with your photos.

I'm not sure i like her lingerie, but for sure I like the woman body curves :D. Maybe a little shave can solve the underwear problem... :D :D
Tks 4 sharing!

"Women are most interesting part of travelling in Latin American countries" - Nope. :)
A nice erotic capture at all - nice composition.
Best Regards, Björn

calling this as "indian underwear" is sorry, tasteless
