Hello again,
and one more shot of the Burmese children -
a nice flowergirl at U-Bein-Bridge,
a 1,2 km long Teakwood-bridge near Mandalay.

She was such a lovely girl, smiling all the time.

She is painted, also as the child in my previous post, with tanaka, a paste made of tanaka-wood, it's like make-up and also protecting against the sun, you always feel fresh with that paste in your face.

Thanks for looking and any words

Hi Sabine,

Another fine portrait showing us this Burmese custom. I see that you used fill flash for this, which has done well to avoid the harshness from the strong sunlight. Your aperture setting has blurred the background , but not so much that we can't see the beautiful scenery and boat action. Another lovely post.

Warm regards,

Schoen Guten Abend, Sabine!

A beautiful portrait from a cute girl with so beautiful eyes! She has a charming and friendly emotions on her face, simply lovely!

The sharpness and POV are nice though I am not a big fan of colored bordered frame but here it works well.

Viele Liebe Gruesse aus Kassel

These are beautiful one of a kind photos Sabine! Excellent portraits, full of color and the happy smiles of the children are just incredible! Well done!

Hello Sabine :)

This younggirl's pretty mouth, painting on her and wreath from flowers..
Beauty composition in colour and light very curious and showy, from splendid sharpness!
I congratulate realization...it pleases me very!

With best wishes.

Hi Sabine
outstanding shot of an incredible smiling girl showing so proudly her special make-up. good eyes contact. amazing young portrait.
perfect light management on details and colors.

Hello Wishnu Garuda,
Another lovely shot of this cute girl with nice use of flash which very well illuminated her facial features,her expression is very natural and full of life and enthusiasm,nice shallow depth in BG,good eye contact and catch lights look beautiful too,a little shoulder curve would give more beautiful pose as compare to this straight composition my friend just my humble opinion.
Best Wishes

Boa noite Sabine

You did a good on focus, the colors are good and the expression is so cute.
Difficult to resist

dear Sabine - wishnugaruda,
it is really the flower princess,
so lovely,
the yellow flower tiara is beautiful and white paints are cute,
and her smiling face is most cheerful,
thank you for your excellent shot,

Hi, Wishnu. The portrait shows the rapture on the child's face. She seems to be enjoying the paint and the flowers are in sharp focus. This shows the custom of the Burma. The scenery in the background should have ben included since it looks so pretty by using a F11 or F16. Thanks for sharing. Cheers.

Superb portrait of this painted face child. Love the sharpness and DOF you have achieved here- great work and TFS!

Hallo Sabine, das ist ein tolles und auch farbenfrohes Portrait von diesem süßen Mädchen.-Sehr gut ins Bild gesetzt, dazu noch ein passender Rahmen, was will man mehr! Toll!
Lieben Gruß Rose

Hi Guys!
Great outdoor portrait of this amazing well-decorated face
The details and focus are great as well as lighting control
I don't care about center compo here, but the background could be better in case of elements position and quality of bokeh
Best wishes, Alireza
