Hello Serghei,
An excellent portrait of this old lady. The good sharpness shows the details of her face perfectly. Her bright colours are very appealing in the picture too.

Hi Serghei,i'm not a fan of portraits but it's impossible to don't stop in front of this woman,her eyes so tires,her mouth without teeth...absolutely a great choice for the today post,and the quality too is the best as possible. Have a nice weekend and thanks,Luciano

Hi Serghei
wow, she is a wonderful subject to photograph. Too bad she probably doesn't speak Russian hahaha. so much character and wisdom, or we'd hope she would has wisdom :) I would like to listen to her stories. excellent portrait snapshot

Hi dear Serghei

Ya your posting meninds me of the attractiveness of Sri Lanka, where I visited for one week in August. They are so nice subject but so calam and gentle. She is still so charming in many points.

All the best and have a good day! Takero

Hello Serghei,

A lovely portrait of a nice Lady wit lovely grey hair.
Your picture is sharp also real pleasant to look at.
Nice daily life image.
Great composition and lovely presentation.
Very well done, TFS.

Have a nice weekend,

Hello Serghei,
The elderly lady poses with a hint of a smile, mixed with a slight touch of bewilderment, as if she is not quite certain what you are up to. Her red and blue clothes, white hair and brown skin make her very bright and photogenic. It's a very good portrait which I could look at for a long time. The fine sharpness reveals every spot and wrinkle on her skin.
Kind regards,

Hello Serghei,

This is a delightful daily life shot, a perfect portrait of this Tamil lady in her native environment.

She appears comfortable to have her photograph taken and she stands out beautifully against the background with her bright red and blue clothing. But, when we look more closely, we see her tired eyes, her lack of teeth and her hands that have seen many years of hard labour.

A lovely photograph with perfect light and colours, perfect exposure and exquisite details and sharpness.


Kind Regards,


Hello, Serghei.
Splendid portrait of this lady, who with her colorful sari looks great, great detail of his face and that expression as of doubt.
Very good color that highlights the image.
Magnificent brightness and sharpness, to enjoy with the details.
Very well done. I like it.
Have a good start to the week.
Very best regards.

Bonjour Serghei,

I think that Portrait photography is very difficult, only a few can make it really attractive and interesting and you might be one of these... !!!
For me I just have the guts to photograph my 2 granddaughters because I am not afraid that people will get angry or upset... And, of course, because they are the most beautiful girls on earth!!! ;)
Thank you for having captured that timid smile so well for us...
