Photographer's Note

This ethnic 'Lio', a red-mouth market woman has nothing more left to smile about with the morning sun back lighting her silvery hair. The visible pigment is a result of continuous betel chewing, a tradition practiced amongst the elderly across this remote island.

Spot exposure on the illuminated side of her face to cast everything else into shadow, a variety of shooting situation I always love to explore....
A simple snap at a traditional village market in Wolowana, Central Flores Island.

This may not be the most pleasant of facial features to your taste!

Setting: 220 mm, 1/320 sec, F5, ISO Raw 200, 0707 hrs
