[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
When exiting Andringitra NP on the way to Ranomafana this young girl with an interesting hairstyle was partly silhouetted against the light. Originally in colour I felt black and white suited the picture better to give a timeless feel.

Hello Neil

Nice soft bl/w, usually I'd go for more contrast, but here the softness really adds to the shot. A very gentle portrait, thanks for sharing it.


So glad you went with b/w... it really lends itself to the seriousness and sadness in her eyes. This photo raises more questions than answers and makes me want to know the story of her young life. Wonderful photo that evicts strong emotions from the viewer... well at least from this viewer. :0) Thanks for sharing!

Hello Neil

Soft portrait of this shy young girl but still attracted by your camera.
