Little Princess

By Jasper87  
No excuses for this one, so adorable and played so hard to get, refusing point blank to look me in the 'camera' Smile

Taken in Manadalay in Myanmar (Burma). The patches on her cheeks is a cosmetic called Thanakha.

Iso 400, 1/125s, f4, 70mm, hand held, no flash.

Many thanks to all for your response to the Shwedagon Pagoda, and to Mark, ****, John, Rob and Lin for their UAs, thankyou.

Although she refused to look in your direction, Dave, you have still captured a delightful shot of the wee soul, clutching her dolly: I have always felt that the Burmese are a good looking race, and she is a very pretty wee thing.

I do not think the way she is looking takes anything from this capture because of the appeal of innocent Children, I love it but just wish the feet were not behind the kerb stone Dave.

A lovely informal shot. Great colour and a good b/g that doesn't detract from the subject
A lovely portrait it just shines. The dress does it for me it has great contrast to the rest of the capture.
Excellent well done Dave. WesternRed.

A cutie for sure, I like the contrast between her lovely dress and being so made up then what almost looks like a rubbish tip behind (your bokeh is so good I can't tell!). Great DoF and contrast: she is so sharp and vibrant.
