Same woman as last night's....
Vietnamese central highlands, a settlement near Lak Lake. A wonderful & much unvisited area by the masses of backpackers/tourists.
As mentioned on yesterday's upload, she's been smoking a pipe for 70 odd years. She's 97 & appears fit as a fiddle - amazing constitution.
Whacked the ISO up for these to use the natural light as much as possible.
Thanks for looking in, feel free to c&c...
What a great picture.
Stunning portrait .... fantastic work.
Magnificent image, brimming with character; she has strong and noble features
Worthy of National Geographic! Great portrait, nice to have a decent description to. Geoff
Cracking character study this has got to be rewarded.
Fantastic Portrait, I love her expression and her face just contains all her history.
Brilliant portrait. Well done.
stunning shot. helen
Good character study...
Superb portrait. The stories she can tell you.
Exellent capture ,the skin texture and the pipe conveys the character instantly. Well done ,looking forward to visiting that area soon.
mind-blowing .... smoking kills????? what a load of bull /... //... western life kills!!!!!!!!
great portrait ...respect
That is a truly wonderful, beautiful face. So much vitality and experience.
Excellent, sensitive work.
Absolutely superb character shot. Congratulations. Does anyone else agree that cropping the hands out is an improvement?
A truly superb portrait. Wonderful lighting.
Thanks guys...totally agree Fred, we could learn alot from the way they live....
Great use of the natural light on this one.
Lovely shot Alan, personally would of liked a depth of field that included pipe and her neck, but as you were struggling for light and I know myself you want to get on and do it as quick as possible while everyone is willing and happy, but looks like you gained a bit of trust and she was happy to sit, and its a lovely capture.
Wow, amazing image, a
Great colors, detail, she seems at ease. Agree with Pooch on the dof but understand why it is like it is. Bert
beautifully composed... shes amazing..!!1
Stunning image - I could look and look at it.
Another fantastic capture of this lady. Small niggle in that I'm finding the blown out highlights on her hand and shoulder a bit distracting - have you tried cropping just to the right of her shoulder and above her hand to lose those bright spots? Still an absolutely stunning shot though
Great character shot with vivid colors and sharp details.
Incredibal, and beautifully captured piece of history. This shot is absolutely stunning.
what a strong vivid eyecatching image, wonderful
Just perfect. What more can I say. Clive
