wow, this is a beautiful portrait, what a look, what an expression,.. just beautiful, i am jealous.... i'd really like to take this shot. bravo Anthony.

What a moving portrait: you seem to have captured and passed so many of her feelings through the lens. Her facial expression is amazing (not just the color of the eyes). Actually, your shot is very successful in that it gives a lot of emotions and mixed feelings... it is hard to be completely detached and treat her just as the subject of a picture.

Beautiful portrait! Very touching. As an amateur, this image is exactly what I strive to learn how to shoot.

Lovely portrait. What a marvellous expression on her face. Congratulations Anthony.
spence (65) 2004-06-30 17:39
Wonderful intense gaze you've caught here Anthony and I love the pose, with her hands included in the shot. Colours seem very natural and I really like the tight crop. Very well done.

Un retrato excelente de una niña preciosa. Que pena da toda la poblacion andina, desde Chile a Venezuela. En todo caso, una gran foto.
pirulesco (1961) 2004-07-01 2:50
Unos ojos exepcionales! Bonita foto de una chiquilla que mas tarde va a matar a sus amantes de rayos de amor-esmeralda!

It doesn't seem anyone has done it yet, so I'll just squeeze in a comparison to the picture "The Afghan girl", remember, those same green stunning eyes. This is just so beautifull.
ishai (4097) 2004-07-01 12:43
Anthony what a beauty
Great crop and beautiful expression

Wow, what a wonderful photo. Your subject is really great. Very good pose - very beautiful.
kourosh (2375) 2004-07-05 10:25
great portrait Anthony. all you need for a great portrait is there and you caught it just right. i would say it lacks a bit of sharpness and contrast and is a bit small. but still a great work.
RAP (1053) 2004-07-07 18:43
Bello retrato, conmovedor, expresivo. Inigualable eleccion de la modelo. Felicitaciones.

Une des plus jolies et naturelles photos d enfant que j aie vue... Cette petite fille brisera bcp de coeurs d un seul regard.... le tien est-il sorti indemne?
Porteplume (3381) 2004-07-30 14:14
Such an excellent picture! That child is beautiful and you succeeded in letting her appearing as naturally as possible.
She doesn't look afraid, she seems to look "through" you in the infinite... Her pose, her eyes are stunning!
Very good work Anthony!
gilad33 (14318) 2004-09-04 2:07

Hello Anthony! Wonderful that picture. The eyes, the expression, everything! Congratulation!
premels (2400) 2004-11-13 5:52
Un formidable portrait : Une excellente lumière sur le visage, la profondeur de champ juste comme il faut et une expression spontanée très intense. Il y a une tristesse fièrement refoulée et bien du défi chez cette fillette. Le titre est approprié.
zeus (1462) 2004-11-16 8:25
Wow, Anthony.... another great picture, an awesome portrait. The esmeralda eyes are beutifull as well as her expression. congratulations!

The most beautiful set of eyes I have ever seen, it reminds me of a very famous portrait of the girl from Iraq taken some years back. Great job...!
SpiritCatcher (119) 2005-01-23 6:47
Uau! What a great portrait...absolutely amazing!

Nefaryta (2582) 2005-09-27 17:56
She is so cute, but there is sadness in her eyes. Excellent portrait
carobnica (1336) 2005-10-17 4:52
ok I need to put my comment also to this one;
it's just catchful for the eye...magnetic...
you caught great moment; catching the eyes looking straight to the camera which of course helps to put the viewer inside...
Paulo_Cohen (354) 2005-12-03 12:24
Very beautiful lady, very beautiful catch, very beautiful photo, very good

Tristan-z (1053) 2006-03-06 6:03
Bravo tu as bien sû saisir le regard de cette enfant. Mais je trouve que ton image a une forte dominante jaunâtre, je me suis permis d'essayer de lui redonner les bonne teintes dans l'atelier.
magdaj (1111) 2006-03-28 9:08
It`s wonderful portrait.
Luciana (2269) 2006-03-28 9:20
Essa é o tipo da imagem que vale mais do que mil palavras... Esse olhar e o resto todo da composição é muito impressionante.
Parabéns, obrigada por compartilhar!
somnath (220) 2006-03-28 9:58
What an expression!!! nice and appealing face,
I like the Tristan's workshop on this than its BW
counter-part, but still yellowish appearance in the original version defines the frustration slightly better.

wow!!!great job!so much expression!
jlynx (12643) 2006-06-07 3:55
I'm moved very much this photo. Even I do not know how to comment her. I know only that I look at the splendid portrait of the child in the special situation. The child wronged by the fate, despairingly and with the sadness in eyes. These eyes are an accusation for the present world for his lifelessness. The very good picture, the excellent seizure, the splendid management with the depth of the sharpness and with the light. My great acknowledgement for this work!
babri (422) 2006-06-07 4:09
Very beautiful portrait. Childhood facial expression with those green eyes are fantastic. Her hands are special and well fitted in the nice composition you selected.
lejczer (248) 2006-06-07 9:48

Wonderfull portrait !! This little girl is so natural !!
We are captured by her eyes !!
Really really excellent !!
siloway (60) 2006-06-12 12:34
Amazing !!! I would love to see a high definition version of this if you have it, just to get a better glimps at the expression in those eyes !
DouceZ (58) 2006-06-12 13:02
Bueatiful portrait, stunning emerald green eyes on esmeralda
realimis (820) 2006-07-30 18:44
Woww..Such a natural beauty..magnetic green eyes..What a glance!!I'm trying to find out if it is sadness, fear,coquetry...i don;t know!There is so much expression here!!Incredible job!!Congratulations!!
Glint (5911) 2006-08-09 2:08
Green eyes and fair hair; a fascinating genetic mix for South America. Where did she come from and where is she going? Those are the questions posed by your picture . But I don't want to knw the answer to the latter, I have seena more recent image of the Afghan girl by Steve McCurry.
Mojgan (44) 2006-08-25 5:27
This is a picture of an extraordinary natural beauty and innocence! I think it affects even the most indifferent people. I should say that Anthony you are a lucky person that met her and also recognize the point. Very well done!
ayobami (1353) 2006-08-29 8:42
What a beautiful portrait! Such an expression and gorgeous eyes! You've captured this scene perfectly!
I also really like the black and white workshop for this one - but the only thing I think is missing from it are her gorgeous green eyes you have in the colour version.
Just a stunning image!
Beaconx (81) 2006-09-03 8:53
Anthony hi.. I am glad I met this picture while browsing through other files. What a perfect shot. It is so strong, it reminds me of the picture of the Iranian Girl at the National Geographic. Good work. Cheers,
danos (78122) 2007-01-11 8:33
very nice shot with excellent light.Very sweet and innocent the glance of the small girl.The colours and the contrast are beautiful.Nice compo.
sunilshukla (844) 2007-02-06 3:46

unbelievable eyes,great expression.Really perfect.TFS.
burmz (45) 2007-06-05 0:21
This picture immediately caught my eye. It makes me wonder what is she biting or if anything at all. I prefer color over BW b/c her green eyes really draws you in or at least for me. I would change nothing about this pic =)
marieli (84) 2008-02-11 9:04
The colour of her eyes is original?
The girl seems as if she knows how to pose in front of a camera!
Colombiana (2949) 2008-07-31 19:42
So many emotions in a single expression, makes it very hard to not be captured by this beautiful portrait of this gorgeous girl!
fotka (2627) 2009-05-18 8:21
Wonderful portrait with extraordinary expression in the child's eyes.
akh (277) 2010-02-23 22:21
Wow! What an imptressive portrait. It touched my heart so deeply. All the other things are all said by others!
Thanx for sharing
KevRyan (22932) 2010-03-12 10:54
A lovely sympathetic portrait of this soulful looking child - very nicely framed and the capture of a perfect moment - reminds me so much of photographs I took of my own children when they were young!
