I dedicate this image to my friend Krzysztof (krzychu30) and enclose a Song
The photo was taken at sunset in a small village thirty kilometers away from Jaipur, a village where people live herding and agriculture, specifically we were in a field of carrots.

rieccoti con uno dei tuoi ritratti, intensi e dalla bella luce.
Un bello scatto, con i bellissimi dettagli del volto e dei capelli e subito sfocato dopo pochi centimetri.

This is a really wonderful portrait. You established a fine eye-contact with the girl who holds her shawl very gracefully. The afternoon light has given you fantastic colours.

bellissimo e vividissimo il ritratto di questa ragazza. Un' immagine nitidissima e molto naturale in cui hai usato la luce meravigliosamente. Il calore della luce e dei colori e' tanto gradevole, Lo splendore e l' intensita' dello sguardo, il sospetto di un sorriso e l' espressione misteriosa sono accattivanti. Complimenti e grazie!
tanti saluti e buona giornata,

You managed here an incredibly beautiful portrait of this young Indian girl. She looks into your lens in such a direct and charming way. Her well caught and nicely highlighted eyes give soul to the picture. You have captured a powerful image of her expression and beauty. Great use of depth of field to pop her from the background. The colours all blend so well, the turquoise shawl and the red dress against the muted background are a very nice contrast. A face of unadorned beauty and one the best portraits I've ever seen on TE. Thank you so much for sharing this great image. Kind regards,
ACL1978 (7511) 2013-03-18 15:53
Valter, this is just beautiful... Her eyes are deep and soulful, and cast just a bit upward from your lens, giving her a kind of hopeful look. The detail and DOF are stunning, making the shot vibrant and fully realized - beautiful subject, brought to life impressively here. Straight to the favorites with this one!

Hello Valter. Some photos have a peculiar effect on the viewer. I look on the photo and I am fascinated. I think the beautiful eyes and the lovely open face this girl make likable. Such images remain permanently in memory. My compliments for this masterful shot.
krzychu30 (15512) 2013-03-19 2:49
first of all Thank You very much for your dedication and I´m sorry for my late reply(came back late from work yesterday).
The scene,the portrat itself is marvelous,but with the song you´ve enclosed it takes on a completely new,deeper meaning.We can almost dive in her eyes.It creates together with the song very nice atmosphhere-very intimate and kind of nostalgic.
Quality,technicque is not so important,but you mastered it perfectly to separate the girl from the background.
Once again Thank You and heve a good day

Oue' oue' caro Valter
Che bello sentire da te! Spero che tutto vada bene con te in India e anche che la tua Stellina stia benissima.
La tua foto e' carina, emozionante dolcissima. Hai scelto un titolo molto appropriato con un brano sensazionale. Sono sicura che il nostro amico Krzysztof l'apprezzeranno molto. Mamma mia, quelli occhi sono incredibile. Il modo in cui hai catturato la luce e' proprio straordinario. Complimenti, amico mio, i tuoi ritratti sono sempre stupendi, ma questa...tutta roba!
lousat (89828) 2013-03-19 3:38
Ciao Valter,non sono un fan dei ritratti e delle foto di persone,ma mi devo inchinare a questo lavoro di qualita' eccelsa,i colori e luce sono eccezzionali,sembra quasi fatta col rullino...comunque in Gambia ho dovuto adeguarmi perche' oltre alle gente e alle piante c'era poco altro da portare a casa...ehehe...buona giornata,Luciano
trevormoffiet (3112) 2013-03-19 4:18

Excellent portrait of this young girl and great capture of that wonderful look in her eyes.
You took the picture on the perfect moment when she was making that movement with her scarf.
Best regards, Paul

Great picture, Valter, and an extra thumb up for the reference to that magical Mal Waldron composition, one of my all-time favourites.
A pure portrait. Tfs.

And you go on with your good portraits from India! This is a really good one! The light and the pose are perfect. I also like the colours and the blurred background. Well done!

Hi Valter Palone
It is expressive eyes of childhood. I like you photo.
Thank you for sharing. I enjoyed the music as well.
Let us share our world to each other.
abmdsudi (53047) 2013-03-30 19:02
A great portrait allowing the viewers to concentrate straight into her eyes and making her facial features stand out even more. I like the way she is looking so naturally but deeply thoughtful. When I look closely at her eyes I am led to wonder what thoughts have made her so wistful and such life in those powerful eyes. Simply said, eyes are the windows to the soul. Super portrait, Congrats.
ikeharel (69827) 2013-04-01 1:12
Young girl with a magnet in her eyes... she is really a beauty.
Nice spotted her and lucky she agreed to pose for you.
Well taken the portrait, lovely picture.
willperrett (10369) 2013-04-11 12:30
Another of your devastating portraits. The eye contact is searing, but at the same time, she seems quite composed and self-assured. The shawl adds beautiful colours and framing. And the background is completely neutral, courtesy of your long lens. Great work.
Vasa (515) 2013-04-13 14:03
It is the most amazing portrait, caro amico Valter. The presence of the hands make also this photo. All ocmpliments and best continuation
PS. Can you tell me how you got the atmosphere in your photo "Silence". Grazie tante.
