I always enjoy this sort of pic. We have seen so many great or not so great shots of the heads/necks of these tribal people -- it is a very obvious theme. Here you did two things successfully: reflected on the photographers' reactions, and focused on the rest of the model's body and clothing. From now on, I will remember that they also have brass bracelets/rings around their legs, and I will also remember their slippers. :)

A little trick, but it helps a lot: you also composed the head of another model into the pic, although at a distance. This helps the viewer put together the pic mentally that the photographers featured here may have in their cameras.

There is a bit of noise in the sky, but this could be improved by PP. All over, the pic and especially its attitude is great. Good job, Swiatek!

I think you wouldnot pay for making portraits of the long neck people :-).
So you did it your own way !
The perspective is great...
Wonderful colours.

groetjes giuseppe.

A testimony of stupidity of tourists in some circumstances ...
Great shot !

This picture makes me feel extremely bad.

I plan to go to Myanmar next March and wanted to go to Loikaw to meet Long Neck people but gathering ideas here and there, I understood that it was forbiden and other areas where you could meet would look like exactly what you present here. I feel very bad for that people.

The tourists probably meant no harm and may have been gentle with the locals but being so obstrusive like in a zoo, I just can't live with it.

So, I already gave up to meet such people...

Great photography though !

I feel a bit sad when I see this kind of shot. It looks to me than Long neck village is used by the gouvernement as a zoo, and even if it's not the case, I should not feel very well after been in a place like this...
Anyway this is a good job Marek.
