Uff, I am back home after 12 hours flight from Hanoi. I had great trip and i made maaany photos. I will try to show some in a systematic way, but first i must see them.
We visited the first university of Hanoi, Temple of Literature. It is a temple of Confucius. The compound also houses the Imperial Academy . Although several Temples of Literature can be found throughout Vietnam, the most prominent and famous is that situated in the city of Hanoi, which also functioned as Vietnam's first university. The temple was first constructed in 1070 under King Lý Nhân Tông and is dedicated to Confucius, sages and scholars.
We saw there many beautiful Vietnamese girls in ao dai, Vietnamese women's dress. The girls celebrated the graduation. Some of them posed for my photos.

Hello Malgorzata

I'm happy to read you enjoyed Vietnam. I spent a couple of years there and still have a special connection to the country, the people and the food. This is a really classic shot, not ultrasharp perhaps, but with a good contrasts and a fine vibe to it.

Looking forward to more.


Hello Malgorzata,
Welcome home, altough to most of us it's like you were never gone. I guess now you will have to sort through at least 10 000 pictures.
This is a very nice portrait with splendid contrasts of white and black and red. The woman is well placed between the brown doors. Noone could be mistaken that this is Vietnam.
Kind regards,

Ola Malgorzata ,
Lindo este retracto vertical com esta rapariga com este belo vestido branco com o ramos de flores , boas cores e luz , parabéns!!
Um abraço Gonçalo

Bonjour Malgorzata

Ceci est un portrait parfait. Le format est superbe et la personne qui prend la pose est de toute beauté. Sa place dans l'image est bien choisie et les couleurs douces sont très belles.



Hi Malgorzata
very attractive portrait of this young woman. The red touch of roses on the white dress is very good. The position of the woman is well choosen. Congratulations.

Witaj Malgosiu,
sliczne zdjecie tej mlodej dziewczyny. Pieknie wykonane. Bardzo ladna kompozycja. Podoba mi sie.
Serdecznie pozdrawiam,

On est impatient d'admirer toutes les images que tu auras ramenées de là bas. Et tu commences très fort avec ce magnifique portrait en pied de cette belle étudiante très élégante.

Hi Malgo,
Welcome back and I look forward to your pictures. We are going to Vietnam in October so I would be interested in your experiences. You have caught this girl in a beautiful pose with her lovely dress against the dark background. The red roses are a fine touch. Very well done.
Best wishes, Ann

Hello dear Malgo,
I didn't knew that you were again on wheels !!!
Perfect capture, with it's pov, light management and nice simple framing.
When are you going to move towards my country ??
TFS and have a nice day
Best regards

Hi Malgozata!

Something that could make you smile: at first, from a quick look on the thumbnails, I thought it was a picture of InasiaJones! The picture is very well composed, stylish and the colors and contrasts are very eye-catching. The Ao Dai is really a sexy dress, here is once more the proof!

Your model posing in a very nice way
Her dress makes a great contrast with red roses and looks superb
A wonderful portrait
All the best

Hi Malgorzata, Welcome back! I see it, this travel was wonderful! Splendid photo of this beautiful lady I like the composition and the elegant details, the POV is superb, great shot, Tfs! Have a nice weekend! Kellemes hétvégét kívánok!

Hi Malgorzata

Lovely portrait of this nice and elegant young lady, but you should have tilted a little more on the ground not to have the dark black area above her and to photograph her feet.
All the best

Hi Malgorzata,
Welcome back to Europe! It will be interesting to see all your pictures, especially if they are as good as this one! A very beautiful girl and avery well composed picture with the door as a major element. Her flowers are indeed very eye-catching.
Kind regards

Hello Malgorzata,

High fashion in remote Vietnam. This is an exquisite photo of the lovely young woman. The black background, black hair, white dress and that important highlight color provided by the small bouquet of red flower, matching her lipstick. There is superb coordination of color, but best of all, it is your sense of harmony in capturing this serene photo.

Warm regards, Malgorzata, have a good weekend,


Nice photo delicate and sweet
your notes are really useful
thanks for sharing this shot
with us,greetings
have a nice week end

Hello Malgorzata. White dress and red roses. What an eye-catching. Title, photo and text fit together perfectly. Very beautiful. Rgds, Wolfgang.

Hi Malgo,

Whoa! I very nearly missed this one.

What a fabulous photograph of a Vietnamese beauty. You have captured her perfectly, standing in a dark doorway and with some beautiful and subtle lighting on her face. The side lighting has modelled her figure and her dress perfectly and the red flowers are just the icing on the cake.


Kind Regards,


Hello Malgo, I think you now have been to as many places as our friend Gert :). This is a beautiful & very delicate portrait, I think the red first caught my eye but it is much more than that, a pretty & sophisticated looking young lady, immaculately dresses & posing like a princess. Compliments, lovely capture.
PS my last posting is without Paolo :)

Bonjour Malgo,
un encadrement soigné qui reprend bien les teintes principales de la composition. J'aime le cadrage sauf qu'il y a pour moi un peu trop d'espace libre en haut.

Hi Malgo
nice to see you back, and glad to have you back on TE full time once again.
sounds like you had a memorable trip, with many photos, what more could you ask for :)

Very elegant photo, like the simplicity, the red splash of color, and the historic brown doors...looks nice.
enjoy your day

I like the vertical crop here, Malgo - suits very well to the subject.
Lovely lady gave you a chance to photo her, like a bride, holding the bouquet, red contrast on white dress.
Fine shot.
Enjoy the holiday weekend,

Hello Malgorzata,
This woman is so elegant and beautiful. She almost looks like a bride with her white dress and red roses. I like her pose, peaking out from behind the wooden door. It is a simple scene, but also very visually strong. I hope you had a wonderful Christmas. :-)

Hallo Malgorzata,
sehenswerte junge Frau, die sich zum Fotografieren überreden lies, meinen Respekt. Das Foto ist wirklich sehr gut gelungen!
Viele Grüße
