[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
While motor-biking in a small village in Tha Pin 1500m elevation, east of Sa Pa, I came across this young tribal Black Hmong and her sweet cutie on piggyback that caught my interest. She looked photogenic in my eye even though might not have a lot to offer, but her fresh and inviting smile captivated me hence the capture.

Her traditional silver earrings is distinctly handcrafted by skillful silversmith - the trademark separating them from other ethnic minorities. To them silver symbolizes more than wealth; it is the essence of a good life.....

Taken on a cold hazy morning

Hello Abmdsudi,
A charming picture of mother and child. Even though we only have the briefest glimpse of the baby's face, the mother's engaging smile more than compensates. Ideal crop, excellent colours and sharpness.

Ciao Abmdsudi, great portrait of lovely young Non, nice smile, wonderful colors, fine details and splendid light, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Bonjour Abmdsudi,

J'aime beaucoup ce portrait de très jeune mère à ce qu'il me semble.Le bébé semble très confortable sur le dos de sa maman et son regard est franc et direct.

Good head and shoulders portrait of this Vietnamese mother and her baby on her back. Nice use of a shallow dof with excellent sharpness and a pleasant diffused light. Tfs!

Witaj Abmdsudi!
Next interesting shot, portrait makes impression.
An interesting face of a mother and a child.
Excellent frame, colors and light.
Well done.
Warm regards.

Hi Abmdsudi
The look in her eyes and her smile are priceless. We can see only a hit of the baby on her back but it tells the whole story.
Wonderful saturated colours are really eye-catching.
Best wishes

Hello Abmdsudi,
An excellent portrait of this young lady and we can also just see her child sleeping in the bottom right hand corner. Good depth of field and fine colours. The blue and red of her clothes stand out nicely from the natural tones of the background.

Hi, Abmdsudi.
Magnificent portrait of this young mother, who carries her baby on her back, beautiful expression with her gaze fixed on the camera and that half smile, the color of her clothes give a nice color.
Good management of brightness and sharpness.
Magnificent image I like it.
All the best and have a good day.

you has an excellent ability to get the best portraits, the models looks natural or you got them in their best. another excellent result here.

take care


As usual, you have caught the expression on the face of this young mom to perfection !
To me, she looks far too young to have a child, but she looks happy and contented despite the dreary life conditions revealed by the gloomy background.
Thanks for sharing this rich gallery of pictures collected through your travels in the most remote places !
Kind regards.
PS The WS shows even more how harsh her life is, going up the steep hill while carrying her baby on her back and being folowed by her elder child.
