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

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

Thank you Yung!!! I'm glad you like it. Wanted to visit Vietnam on my trip to Cambodia as well but didn't have a time to do so unfortunately. We spent 3 weeks in Cambodia but next year I'm planing to visit Vietnam just itself and I can't wait for it Wink All the best to you too Wink

Brilliant, but I'm confused that Pete only gave it a HC. Surely it should also have an EC
