We are on the way from the Dominican Republic to Haiti. The difference between both countries is extreme. Never seen before a such poverty-stricken country.

nice image Achim. i like the tones and DOF. very dramtic. Tfs


Hi Achim
This shot is worth commenting on for several reasons - mostly for me because of the conflict it creates. She is quite clearly desperately poor; but she radiates beauty, so there is a sense of both sympathy and admiration for her.
I think this conflict is expressed in the dissaray of her hair and clothing vs. the small earring she is wearing. A similar contrast expressed in the soft texture of her skin against a dusty and empty background.
As far as composition goes, I think this shot would have been better with a closer crop, or placement of the subject less centrally within the frame?
Excellent work, congratulations.

very difficult portrait to do! Always great to have a reflector ready just in case... hie hie how often do we carry it around just for an opportunity like this one. Well done under the circumstances

Beautiful shot. Love the skin colors. TFS:-)

nice shot. but i dont know what i have to say..lots of rich in world but still lots of poverty... thank your for your remind... TFS

It's expressive a lot! Very well catch! Yes a know the place have a great poverty! But to be there i presume it show really the point!

A very strong photojournalistic portrait, Achim!
Great capture.

Amazing photo! Great work!

Nicely composed, powerful image.
Great DOF and POV.

A sad but true fact of life, makes you count your blessings.


This photo, in spite of having an excellent definition and contrasts, fills to me of sadness. Even when it supported the world to live situations like this.?

Hello Achim. Powerfull and thought evoking shot. thanks for sharing.

Regards Phil.
