Wow, I love the expression on this old and worn face. Hand in position. And still keeping an eye on things. Love the warm and earthy tones. Great shot!
Excellent portrait with lovely tones Edwin. I'm surprised you used the 1.4ext unless you were pretty far away. Well done. B

This is superb! I love everything about Africa, so I am 'stealing' this into my fav!!
Très belle photographie, Edwin.
Cette femme, hors de notre temps, nous donne une bonne leçon d'humilité …
What can we say when an OUTSTANDING shot like this is here? Just sit back and ejoy it. Well seen and composed. Most important fact: ACHIVED DOF!

Excellent photo with a wonderful color palette. Perfect DOF.
Why am I doing a workshop on one of yours when you can produce work like this unaided?
Undisputed top quality in all respects.
I will have to return later with a reward for you - all out.
Absolut fantastic work Edwin.

Very nice picture, good crop and great look of this old Himba woman
Man, this is one of the nicest portraits I have seen on TL this year. The skin is just beautiful, the expression is just so eloquent, the colors are great, the background is perfect. Crop and compo flawless. That is, as far as I can judge... The type of photo that brings a preson so close to me that all of a sudden I experience kinship and not something exotic. The best thing that can happen. Goes to favs.
PS: Moved it to my "Portraits to learn From" theme. Learning point: An unwilling (uncooperative, uninterested, etc.) model can be still represented in a meaningful and dignified way.

I've just come to "discover" your portofolio here ... I'm amazed by your outstanding selection of portraits here!!! My compliments!
This one here is just superb in any way, the composition, the details, the colours ....
I also like the way she looks at his strange man operating with that strange machine in front of her ... tells a story by itself.
Thanks for sharing

Superbe portrait pour lequel j'apprécie particulièrement l'attitude et la netteté. Quel regard inquisiteur ! Beau travail. Gérard

i love pictures of the experienced world Aboriginal people. They are usually the ones who let themselves be fotographed. In this one, i dont see her allowing you to do that. Yes it is a beautiful picture, the tones are all hers and you have presented her in a wonderful light. Perhaps on a good day, even she will like this picture.

Perfect, pure perfection.
Perfect bland background to increase the detail to the model.
Perfect crop and frame.
Just utterly beautiful... amazing work.
