A cute young Lady from Peru and a tipical 'reed' boat

Lake Titicaca is the highest commercially navigable lake in the world,at 3,812 m (12,507 feet) above sea level. Located in the Altiplano high in the Andes on the border of Peru and Bolivia. More than 25 rivers (sweet water) empty into Titicaca, and the lake has 41 islands, some of which are densely populated. Those who love to eat fish, friends you'll get the best Trout fish in this lake.

ps: Please check workshop to see another cute angel:-)

2/2/2007-Friends lot of you have said about the background. It is her father, and I wanted to have his little presence with her.
Also, it is a 'Rowboat' and for the information I did not blur him to strong.
Rewsharer in here did know how to define that feeling in one good sentence( 100% my feelings) I quote him**
**The background is a little distracting, but only in that it tells a story of context** End of Quote.
Thanks Rew and Thanks TL

Have a good weekend

A beautiful portrait of that nice girl, well composed and nice colours.
Thanks for sharing,

Hi Vandana
Adorable shot! A very cute face, captured with excellent depth of field and sharpness, and lovely saturation. The light was good! The background is a little distracting, but only in that it tells a story of context, the real focus of the photograph is that delightful child.
Thank you for sharing it

Hi Vandana,
Excellent portrait very natural with vivis colours and finished in a great frame. Perfect posting my dear!

Hi Vandana,

Excellent shot! The expression is fantastic, plus the very good composition, DOF, colors and detail.

Hi Vandana: from the excellent pov, I gather you went out on that boat! Very brave, probably very safe, but looks rickety. Colorful picture and this is a little sweetheart!

Oh Vand, sooo cute this little gilr, in Dutch: Een lekkere snuit. :-) Fantastic pp!
Also a VERY good line of Rewshearer:
**The background is a little distracting, but only in that it tells a story of context, the real focus of the photograph is that delightful child. ** Compliments Rew, I agree. Yes Vand.. letting the Father be a little present is in this case a good solution! Have a good weekend, bye from my office

Hello Vandana,
This is a very beautiful portrait of this little girl with the pose and the expression. teh color and lighting are excellent. My little nit pick: The men on the left is a little distracting and the girl is a little bit to centered, I would have cropped him from the photo. Try that and you'll see the difference.

Adorable kid Vandana! I think kids are one of my favorite things to take pics of! This is very colorful!

Hi Vandana
Pretty colors and pretty girl.
I like to see the details of the reeds in bundles for the construction of the "reed" boat one, I believe that I read that their name for this bundles is « totora »
TFS and the voyage

Hello Vandana,
a beautiful shot, the little angel does not even seem to notice the camera,. A very natural and relaxed photo. I love the colors and the nice detail.
POV, framing and presentation are great.

My dearest Vandana,
Poor John, he can't get over our engagement :-)
You capture a very nice expression on her face. I like the color and the point of view.
Best regards and have a nice weekend

Hello Vandana

This is a very nice and colourful picture of a young lady. I like the active background that is out of focus enough to leave the spots on the personage in the foreground. She seems to be in good hands with her father in the back. It is also very generous on your part to give an extra picture in the workshop. That picture was good enough to be published as an original version.

Regards, Sylvain
