[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a boy tending to the alpacas at a farm outside of Pisac. The farm is more for tourists, to educate about alpacas, how they are used and their importance to Peruvian society.

For PP, I adjusted levels and color curves after selectively desaturating the BG somewhat.

David, I know this, I've also posted pictures of same farm.

Its wonderful to get memories back. Nicely captured. :) Vandana

i love the patterns of peruvian hats and try to make myself.

Good pp work here, David - the wee boy's expression stands out nicely and the colours of his hat and shawl are vibrant but not over-saturated. Good shot.

A very nicely done shot! I desaturate my background too sometimes so it does not distract the subject. It is nicely exosed and very detailed.

Thank you for your comments on my photo, "Sunrise at the Fishponds". I appreciate it.

An excellent close up David! Off centre framing works well. The close up shot really jumps out of the frame at me, because of that vivid colour. Well done!

Hello David
A lovely picture of this boy with the alpaca. The colourful clothes are really attractive and make a good point.
Excellent sharpness, colors and composition.
My compliments and TFS.

Hi David, even alpacas on his head. Must have been a great experience going to Peru.
A lovely picture to share.
