[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
During our trip to Vietnam, Sapa was the most beautiful place we saw, but to me the most beautiful of all was not any place... but my girlfriend Bess.

Applied rule of thirds to compose the shot, placing her eyes there. Used a wide lens aperture to have a nice bokeh (the widest for the Focal Length of 210 mm)

We can see in the background the red fabrics of the local costumes.

Happy 2011 to all of you and a warm hug for you Bess :)

Hi Galder - Happy New Year to you and Bess!

I think this could be a touch sharper, especially around the eyes. But that is compensated for by a beautiful smile, the off-centre composition and the background blur and colours - it's a nicely balanced shot.

Hola Galder!
Nice girl, amazing pose, marvelous eyes and smile. Wonderful scene and background.
Nice brightness and colours.
Good POV and capture, fine focus. Sophisticated portrait.
Well done!

Galder this is a first class portrait with exellent details and colurs
tfs regards bryan

She is beautiful indeed...Nice POV and like the colours in the picture.


I agree with 'Kilted-Arab', as this charming face of the young lady in this beautiful portrait could be bit sharper, Galder!

Other than that, the picture keeps a great light management and well shown colors.
The POV is well thought.
Good work.

I wish you and your family a very Happy and Healthy New Year!
