She is the first portrait I shot in Peru. While the bus was changing passengers and cargo in Puno, I managed to take a picture of her.

j'aime beaucoup ce portrait et l'atmosphère qui s'en dégage... je ne sais pas trop expliquer pourquoi!

très belle composition,la lumière venant par la droite donne une atmosphère agréable à ce portrait.

very nice light, maybe I would prefer it more on her face, but in this version it also works good.

Absolutely beautiful. Excellent positioning and i like the dark background opposed to the light on her face.

wonderful colors and light.
she seems very old and proud.
compo is ok but IMHO it will be better if a little crop by the bottom.

This is a nice portrait
I like the way you placed her in the capture
And the way she is looking /not looking at you
The DOF is amazing

I like the serenity coming from that person and the light on her face and hat is wonderful.

I guess Peru is a great place for portraits.. Again not much to add that well done. What I especially like here is the great light and shadow play. L.

Este retrato es estupendo. tiene una luz muy buena que baña muy suavemente a la señora. Las texturas logradas producto de la luz son perfectas.
La composición es extraordinaria, me gusta mucho la ubicación de la anciana desplazada ligeramente hacia la derecha.
