This is closeup portrait of a charming woman, one of the many canoe paddlers on Thu Bon river. Such a lovely smile! and what wonderful mood emanates from her. The expression portrays a softness and a feeling of tranquility. Such life in those eyes.
In WS: Bigger picture of her from different perspective, paddling a canoe. Most paddlers are women who earn less than ten dollars a day but that means a lot to them and most goes to suppport their family in the village.

Hi Abmdsudi, portrayed by the beautiful expression, seems to be a woman fulfilled a life lived, but glad of his simple but useful work, I like the close framing and the black background that brings out the good features, warm regards, valter

Nice capture of this smiling face and for me tired eyes. i liked the lightening on her face which glows the lines on her face. It is more supported by the dark surroundings which helped the face to glow. Its natural and you've captured it wonderfully, great shot

this is a very nice portrait,I like this close framing very much,and the face standing out the black background.I think she looks almost like a man,in spite of her sweet smile.I am surprised to read that this difficult job is mainly done by women.

Great portrait, I prefer it to the one in the PS
Like the way she smiles and you captured so well
May be she only knows to pad or prefer it to the hard work in the fields
Nice frame and colors

nice the close up view,as the cropping too, on the face of this native woman,with her smile to captivate you.I like the clarity as the details of the face with the feeling of tranquillity to spread on it.
Nard (6915) 2011-10-08 1:44
Spelndi close up portrait as I like. The sharpness is very good but not too strong and keep softness on her face. I like also the dark background and her smile and glance that illuminate the picture.
sacimar (25969) 2011-10-08 2:09
this is good closeup, I think it is an interesting portrait, her eyes expression gives an idea of how many things she has seen, thank you for the complementary image to give us an idea of the place you took the image, well done,
holmertz (31516) 2011-10-08 6:27
This is indeed a fine portrait of a woman with a very gentle smile. I like the tight cropping and the touch of pink in the lower part.
You surprise me with all these pictures from Vietnam from five years ago. You have been hiding them for such a long time.
I have been away for several weeks and will have to look at your latest photos more carefully in due time.

Un fond sombre qui fait ressortir la beauté de son visage son regard et son sourire, bon cadrage serré, j'aime la présentation de la dame sur le bateau en WS

Nice composition and good presentation.

a great portrait of this woman, caught in a magnificent close-up with your zoom lens.
In the WS we can see the location of the woman in her canoe, in a wider angle.
I like to see all the details in her face, thanks to the great sharpness of the image, as well as her serene look and the tranquility that inspires us.
It is an excellent work.
peppe59 (14551) 2011-10-09 3:46
photographic technique perfect!
compliments a beautiful picture of this woman with perfect details.
axiotea (21647) 2011-10-09 9:12
Less than 10$ might sounds a little but I know many workers (like in Cambodia where the average wage is about 30$ a month) would like to earn this amount (10$) a day!
I also like to make tight framing on portraits and the one you're showing us is working perfectly and this lady seemed to appreciate to be photographed!
Thanks for the ws, which adds context to this image.
dkmurphys (42697) 2011-10-10 1:33
Another lovely portrait. An artistic shot with a lot of expressiveness. Beautiful work!
Have a nice day.
mauro61 (52545) 2011-10-10 1:36
ben colta l'espressione di questo volto con una luce ben diffusa.
Taglio stretto che mette in mostra i particolari.
jemaflor (74294) 2011-10-10 3:31
Well framed, perfect sharpness on the eyes, glance is expressive, good complement with colors of these clothes, well done.
ravinmb (1236) 2011-10-10 7:03
This is a wonderful close up potrait shot. I like close ups specially when there is no distraction like this .. This is very nice and its sharp and clear .. It's not always easy to take it so clear unless they are posing.. Very well composed.
Have a great day.
elkab (4939) 2011-10-10 9:07
Perfect shot of super model (fantastic looking eyes, natural expression, lightening face). Super chosen moment to taken shot. Amazing depth of the shot. Moody light management and intersting colors.
delpeoples (48832) 2011-10-10 21:25
What a lovely lady you have captured, again showing what a great rapport you always have with your subjects. She seems very at ease and natural. Excellent colours, I love the close-up and her skin is amazing.
Have a great day and thanks for sharing

CLODO (26590) 2011-10-12 6:46
the portrait is stiil interesting even if she is posing for you, with a gentle smile.
siolaw (37642) 2011-10-17 5:55
Good close up portrait , because the subject connects strongly to the camera and has a nice and friendly expression. Good focus on the eyes.
ourania (18918) 2013-01-18 14:22
a lovely portrait and an audacious approach and full frame for a shy and gentle hardworking lady. She must have been captured during a chat that made her smile and be content of your interest. Her expression is really wonderful and the tilt in the frame, the closeness, the warm natural colours and the sharpness make our impression of her direct and vivid. The workshop picture is great too and completes our acquaintance with her with an accurate description of her workplace. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely weekend,
