This young Akha girl was great fun to observe who was probably lost in her own little world. Unsure whether she was aware of my lens. Taken at Luang Namtha morning market where the Akha women - the dominant hill tribe dazzle you with their colourful embroidered clothes & head scarf as part of their traditional dress code and not to mention their silver earrings.

She's probably in her mid-twenties now......

Setting: 200 mm, 1/500 sec, F4, ISO 200, 0743 hrs

A very nice portrait of this young girl, you have caught a very nice moment when te girl was mentally absent, I like the headgear
regards ryszard

Ciao Abmdsudi
potrebbe sembrare che un taglio quadrato possa essere più idoneo, ma in realtà la foto è molto bella anche così, si ha la sensazione che la foto non sia terminata con il ritratto, ma che stia per succedere qualcosa.
Saluti Carlo

Hello Abmdsudi, I am fascinated to know what she was holding in her hand.
The shallow depth of field allows us to concentrate upon the girl with her thoughtful expression.
Excellent composition.
Thanks for sharing, regards Jean.

Another fine portrait featuring this colourfully dressed young lady. Her expression does not really give much away. Top class technical quality.

Hello Abmdsudi,
nice the portrait of the young Akha girl with her jacket to ads colour in the scene.Her confused expression and her placement in the frame enhance even more the beauty of the scene.


Hi dear Abmdsudi YTH

I know Akha tribes in Thailnad and thier headdress is very common. But Akha in Laos is the first time fo me. This one seems to be more modern. Blurred hand is very nice effcet.

All the best andf have a good day ! Takero

Hello Abmdsudi,

Good use of a shallow dof with excellent sharpness on her face. The magenta coloured jacket contrasts well with the oof green bg. Tfs!

Hi Abmdsudi
confused or not, i know I like the shot :) I wonder what she's carrying, probably food? and what type of food is that? for me, the eyes are the most captivating part of the image, and the head gear. lovely capture. cheers
