Hi folks,

hope you all had a nice christmas Wink Here is one of my favourite portraits I took over in Cambodia. This one I took in Floating Village near Siem Reap in Cambodia, where you can see a lot of children like this little big man sailing on the water. Hope you like it Wink

Thanks for looking and have a nice day Smile

I can see why it is a favourite Pavol, it's excellent Smile

I sense an award or two heading this way.

It's stupendous - I adore this shot. I can certainly see why it is one of your favorites.

Great subject matter; wonderful light, processing and use of aperture.

A wonderfully evocative image, Pavol. The dof is just right concentrating the focus on the boy. Great stuff.

A prime piece of journalistic imagery

Also a poignant reminder as to the "real" world, in which people have to survive
