A portrayal of an everyday street people getting about their daily life at the same market to my previous posting. Scanning the horizon searching faces worthy of few clicks when observed this lady - a market seller who was already actively engage in the business with a concentration of warm morning light falling on her face that attracted my interest here. I really liked the very low, rim-lighting effect that I think she deserved to have her stories not only told but shown.

Managed to capture this fleeting moment without her being aware of it, through a small gap amongst the crowd. The deep colours of her outfit and the 'krama' traditional head scarf which is quintessentially Khmer, give it vibrant life in my opinion.....

Another human landscape, neither a pretty face nor your classic TE fodder perhaps, but it has fond memories for me and thanks a heap for viewing...

Hello Abmdsudi,
The perfectly managed light brings a magical atmosphere to this delightful street portrait. Her outstretched arm makes for a particularly strong composition. Excellent colours and clarity. One of your very best in my humble opinion.

Dobar dan.
Lep pogled i trenutak, interesantan i dobar tekst ...
lepo pokazano, dobar kontrast, lepe boje, lepo uhvacen trenutak.
Lepa narodna nosnja i trenutak sa svetlom, lep portret.
Zelim vam lepo popodne, sve najbolje.

Good day.

Ciao Abmdsudi, great portrait with intense expression, fantastic light, excellent clarity and wonderful colors, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Bonjour Abmdsudi,

Tu as su capter un très beau moment. Il y a un échange au bout de cette main, mais il demeure mystérieux et c'est bien ainsi. La lumière en diagonale sur le visage de la dame est magnifique.



Bonjour, cher Abmdsudi,
Encore une prise de vue très réussie (une peinture réalisée par un grand peintre flamand).
Une très belle lumière éclaire le visage d'une bien belle façon.

Hello Abmdsudi,

A good head and shoulders portrait of the selfie taker. Good sharpness and excellent use of a shallow dof. I like the sunlight on her face and good reflections in the eyes. Tfs!

Witaj Abmdsudi!
Excellent shot.
Wonderful light and colors.
Next beautiful portrait.
I like framing and depth.
Very well done.
Have a good weekend.

Olá, Abmdsudi!

Você descreveu sua foto muito bem, a nota é interessantíssima. Também gostei muito do efeito da luz e das cores da roupa da senhora. A nitidez ficou excelente e o fundo desfocado também.

Ciao Abmdsudi
la luce che illumina la scena è calda e dolce come il volto di questa donna.
La mano è tagliata, ma non è rilevante nei confronti del bellissimo momento che hai fotografato.
