Another from Cambodia, on the way back from a afternoon on Tonle Sap lake the sun was getting low and I spotted the sun backlighting this little girl and just as I was framing the shot see gave a little wave.

great for all aesthetical reasons but mostly for the expression your caught. There is the raised hand that is somehow something that she associates with reacting to a kind stranger perhaps. At the same time, there is an expression in eyes and entire body that studies the situation, that asks: what is he doing here, what is this situation here? Excellent travel photography that is a comment on the genre itself.

I would expect this image to be in one of those books you get showing journalistic images from around the world... the ones where you look at each image and they give you the incentive to pick up a camera and shoot, shoot, shoot!!!

Fantastic through and through!!!!

Regards,
Moey!
