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.
The title Chum Reap Sue, Cambodian for Hello

I agree mate.
I love this, everything is spot on, the light, the composition, the depth of field, the eye contact, the mood... One of the best photographs I've seen on this site for a long time. Hope it gets more than my piddly award
I really like the backlighting, how lovely that she waved - excellent shot Les!
Short listed this one myself mate. The quality of light in here is excellent mate ... wish it was in my PF I can tell you

PHOTOGRAPHY AT ITS BEST
Congrats on the PA, an excellent choice.
Just a magical photo Les ..... everything is right about this. Well done on the awards.
well done on a very deserving potw
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.
One of the best POTW awards ever!! IMHO....
One to be proud of!
Congrats Les! And thanks for sharing this!
Quote: Well that has just finished the weekend nicely
... and POTW should start this one off nicely too mate.
Well deserved, best I've seen in a long time mate!!!
Have to agree with the Boss, best I've seen too
Well done Les - nice one

Gratifying to see that this has awards a plenty. Congratulations, I hope to see it grace more than one magazine cover and to find more rewards in a wider audience.

You captured the light perfectly, the composition, content, colour,it has the lot, even a hint of sadness, the little wave with no smile, GREAT work.
