This photo was taken a few kilometres far from Ho Chi Mihn, when we stopped on the way to watch some fishermen working. There, we found this little girl, a fisherman's daughter, who was very curious about us. Just like most part of the children in the region, she seemed really attracted by the cameras and just wanted to take photos. She followed us till the car and this was one of the last photos I've taken of her!

Fantastic photo, excellent portrait, one of the best I 've seen in a long time! Great composition and framing, excellent background, that's interesting without taking the attention from that beautiful face! Excellent composition and framing, great focus and depth of field, flawless light management! Beautiful "interaction" with your sweet "model"! congratulations!

Splendid candid portrait well framed with the interesting blurred background.

This is a familiar scene. I like the out-of-focus father in the background and the high perspective, top crop in the water. But what is this girl hiding behind? I think the shot would have been better without that thing, especially with that interesting expression we already see.

Very good and smart composition. The DOF is good too and also the subject. I like the way she is looking at us and the whole portrait work very well.

Parabéns e Abraço

Essa foto me faz lembrar os indios aqui da Amazonia. Foto simples, mas com um forte apelo ao olha da criança. Bom trabalho Ana.

Enigmático o olhar da garota, Anabela.
Gostei do DOF também, desfocando ligeiramente o fundo da foto.
Um belo momento do cotidiano de pessoas simples do nosso mundo.
Grande abraço e ótimo final de semana para você.

Uma gracinha a criança que parece se intimidar um pouco com a câmera. Mesmo assim mostrou sua beleza e charme. Bela imagem e excelente qualidade fotográfica. Parabéns pelo registro! Grande abraço.

The title fits perfectly that scene where the little girl made an apparition from behind the metallic "fence"
i like the fact you have included a bit of the river and the father on his fishing boat adding context to the image.
I might have cut off a bit of that metallic 'thing' to give more impact to the girl. I made a small ws, hoping you don't mind ;)
Wish you all the best for 2010

Olá Anabela, muito engraçado este retrato da míuda que parece esconder-se atrás de uma máscara improvisada. Será com tantos outros míudos com um misto de curiosidade e timidez. Muito original a composição que oferece um dois em 1. Gosto bastante de ver a cena com o pai lá atrás num equilíbrio de diagonal com a míuda.
RE: sim, está um frio de rachar e ontem esteve a nevar o dia todo em Granada. Hoje subiram as temperaturas um pouco e a chuva destrui a neve toda aqui à volta da casa. Há muito tempo que não via tanta neve e na 6ªf estive a esquiar com 15negativos e não foi fácil não ficar congelado.
Bom Ano Novo para ti!

Charmante image très touchante par cette timidité apparente de la fillette.

Yes, children in Asia, especially in smaller town, are always very carious about strang looking tourings. I use to be that way when I was little too, I would follow them around, I especially like to foller the man, I thought they look like monkey ;) and I love to look at their blue/green eyes, but I'm also very shy, so I would be hiding somewhere like this.

Hi Ana, A nice catch of this little girl, the eye always tell a story I feel, her shyness evident by the cloth over her face, the shallow DOF with the blurred background is excellent, kind regards Wilson.
leonorkuhn (16235) 2010-01-14 6:21
As crianças são as mesmas em qualquer lugar do mundo. Curiosa mas envergonhada, se esconde pela metade! Ótimo retrato da menina, bem natural e espontâneo, ótimas cores e excelente enquadramento.

Have a nice day,Danos

O sorriso que não se vê é o ponto alto dessa linda fotografia. A nitidez também está muito boa.
jmcl (14535) 2010-01-27 19:19
She is a beautiful girl ... in a thoughtful and evocative image ... hidden and mysterious ... the way the depth of field sets off the background of the scene is wonderful ... tremendous.

Hello Ana, one of the loveliest portraits I've seen most recently. I can read the shyness and curiousity in her eyes. With your excellent focus and blurred background we can feel the depth of field. Congratulations, Tolga

Like this portrait of this sweet child covering her face with the metal sheet. The use of shallow DOF is adequately used as we see her father with the net. Very nice work!
smarcell (19963) 2010-02-15 1:02
An excellent portrait, which also shows the scene around
delpeoples (56722) 2010-02-22 6:17
Ola Ana, this is such a beautiful photo, so full of emotion. The little girl is adorable and you have captured her superbly. The depth of field is excellent as is the colour rendering and sharpness. Thanks for sharing and have a beautiful day, Lisa

Ciao dear Ana,
beautiful image, you have captured this sweet look in fabulous way, realizing a meaningful composition with the father of the child that observes the scene. Compliments!
Ciao, have a nice Sunday!
Manamo (3708) 2010-05-14 19:53
this is nice!
Strong foreground that sets a very interesting tone for the whole frame. Then you fill the rest with a remarkable bokeh. Love the fisher in the wooden boat! The interaction between you and the girl is really nice!
Very well done!

Really a very pretty face and good background story!
Wish you a nice weekend
