Bonjour, chère Malgo,
Je suis heureux de voir que les traditions ne se perdent pas en contemplant ce très beau costume régional.
Quel travail et quel honneur pour la personne qui porte ce vêtement.
Sujet très bien présenté.

Wonderful photo! I lived in China for a year and am somewhat familiar with the story of the Miao, but only ever saw their traditional costume in a museum. I'm glad to know they are still preserving their heritage and way of life. Great colors and composition on the stone steps. The background adds character and contrast to the woman's outfit. Thanks for sharing!

Stealing, surely not:-) Excellent capture of this attractive young lady. Dressed in her traditional costume, she looks superb against the stone steps. Perfect framing.

A magnificent close up view of this young lady, very nicely captured with excellent sharpness and wonderful color contrast, I like this vertical frame which shows her perfectly.
my warm regards,
Nice candid portrait, sneaking into someone else's foto session...that's never a problem in China :)
On the other hand: this is defintely NOT A MIAO GIRL! You can rent these traditional outfits for foto sessions and the (Han) Chinese love that. Depending on how you pay you can rent the jewellery too.
Still, being a tourist or not, she is beautiful.

It doesn't matter much which ethnic group this woman belongs to. She looks nice in any case and the dress and all that goes with it looks fantastic. The setting with the staircase is also nice and is probably regularly picked for this kind of photos. The pleasant light helped you to a perfect exposure.

What a lovely lady in this magnificent costume. You have composed the shot beautifully and your "model" has posed in a very beautiful position. Superb colours, light and composition.

Il ne faudrait pas que cette dame tombe à l'eau avec ce collier autour du coup...ce serait la noyade assurée.Mais elle est très jolie dans ses vêtements traditionnels et la pose est des plus naturelle.

Your picture reminds me of a place in China with Tibetan inhabitants. There Chinese tourists also rented clothes to take pictures. Of course a complete different kind of clothes.
Yes, she's very beautiful.
The pretty and colourful clothes and the many decorations opposite the rough stones of the staircase and the wall. What a sight!
Best regards, Paul

I like traditional clothes, and this outfit is beautiful. There are so many intricate details, and the silver jewelry and headpiece make the overall look even more spectacular. I also like the background. As you wrote, maybe this girl rented the costume, but she is still Chinese, and her ancestors might have actually worn clothes like this. :-)

continuo a pensare che il tuo viaggio sia stato veramente interessante, hai visto cose rare e preziose.
Queste minoranze etniche fanno parte di una lunga storia, troppo spesso dimenticata, ma forse è un bene per la loro comunità.
Bellissimo costume e bellissime foto.

Yes, she is. Eyecatching dress, full of details and colors.
Being a so large country it is natural a wide variety of cultures. Interesting for the foreigners.
Tfs & regards

I don't think I have been to Hunan province so it's interesting to see what I missed! The colorful traditional costume worn by the woman is eyecatching. Good sharpness and framing. Tfs!

yes, I agree with you and Benny, you can never really be sure about these people posing for photos in traditional outfits.
I always have my concerns. But its also the norm now when travelling, to see such things. Its very common to see this in Peru, which I'm sure you're aware of as well, where they make you pay for such a photo.
well, whether she is real or not, its still a lovely and vibrant outfit, and makes for a good memory photo. cheers

What a beautiful portrait ! The bright colours and the sophisticated patterns and jewelly contrast beautifully with the rustic background.
She chose the right place to pose on these steps . It makes an excellent composition.
One has to admire the handicraft !
Looking at WS1, I suppose that girl is wearing a hired costume, just for the photo ! Nice experience.
TFS and have a good weekend.
