Very nice image Edwind. I like the texture of his hair and the shape and texture of his adornments. The quality of light adds to this capture. Well done.

Excellent, natural portrait. Cropped a little close at the top, but this is only a minor point. Great work!

Excellently captured image! I would suggest a little more processing next time, namely make his features come out just a little more.. a little whiter eyes, a little stronger contrast. But thats nit picky, 1% stuff. Amazingly well executed. Good eye. Lovely lens. I wonder if the 1.4x converter hurt sharpness at all? Congrats for lugging that hefty piece of glass around.

-you have capture a great portrait for this boy, a natural expression, from his hair, necklace, and skin to his reaction.
-you dont need to pay for a model, designer to fix his hair and everything and i think you dont waste the oppurtunity, you shot this boy in many angles hehehehh
great capture =)

Beautiful skin tones with fabulous bokeh. Nice shot Edwin! I wonder what the necklace represents? B

An excellent portrait with natural expression. I like this photo very much. From your note we know you are a good communicator. By the way, I suggest you resize the picture first before do USM sharpening, because different size needs different level of USM.

Beautiful portrait, Edwin, and you have managed to capture a very nice expression in the boy's eyes. I personnally find it a bit tight at the top but that is just me being very nit-picky. Otherwise, nice testimony of a life style we don't see often. Well done!

I really like your work Edwin. It speaks of truth and beauty of people. A great portrait as are your other ones.
A very nice portrait, congragulations.
The framwork is very good as well, and the background compliments the subject.
Is it better to shoot in RAW if so, why?

Again, I feel like he could be the boy next door, or my cousing, despite the difference/distance in race, culture, and geography. One of the most certain, albeit subjective indicators of a great portrait.

Edwin, You Himba series is stuning in technic and felling, In this one framing and great look of boy is so affective. Achived DOF is in best mood as well. Congrats for this great series. Waiting for the next.

You remebering me something about the style of Gaby. It was a photographer i enjoyed when he was there. He did excellent portrait him too in Africa! Of course it's not the same style. Here, i'm impresset by the way they dress themself. It seems very important for them cause it's very sophisticated ornement! Beautifull!
No when i talk about ressemblance with Gaby style... It's about que quality of portrait! Great one!
So I'm oop for now :)

Tight framing. Beautiful details of this candid boy! Well done.
Now I understand your comment in my last posting titled
