Splitting bamboo to make baskets with. It's a mighty big machete for such a wee little thing!
My feeling is that the light is nice enough although I would have loved some catch lights in her eyes. I like the dulled tones because the whole world over there is a gentle calming brown and this is nicely reflected.
What I don't like is the messy composition. It was such a spur of the moment capture anyhow, but in that short moment there was nowhere I could move to that would have allowed a cleaner image. In the end I just tried my best to use the most approprate DOF and crossed my fingers that it would work...

I'd love some feedback on this, and how you togs deal with that sort of problem when you're travelling. Do you move things around (I always think this would be too intrusive but would like to hear your views) or are there little compositional tricks that could help? Maybe there's something I could do with the post-processing (LR 3 but no PS)
Many thanks for any little hints and tips you can give!
