This is something a little different from me. Yes, I've posted portraits before but nothing as closely cropped as this. I was tempted to post this one because of the detail and quality of the image. Even at 100% on the original shot everything is crisp and clear.
This picture was taken on a boat trip to the Sundarbans National Park. It takes a day to cruise down there and a day back so there is plenty of time for relaxing and getting to know your fellow passengers.
This is a local young lady who was along for the ride with the westerners. She is intelligent and confident and therefore more willing to allow me to take her picture than many Bangladeshi women. Girls are quite happy to pose for the camera but as they get older they usual become more shy too.
The photo is cropped from a wider original. This is posted in a workshop here. If you don't like one maybe you will like the other. I'd be interested to know which is most popular.
