Award Shortlist   


On Highway 27, between Lak Lake and Dalat, among the hills of the Central Highlands there is a restaurant (see V9 & 10). There is nothing special about this restaurant: itís typically Vietnamese, the food is very nice and the view on the hills is stunning. Whatís special are the two little girls and the little dogs (see V7 & 8 to find out).

As Iíve said before, children in Vietnam are so photogenic that I came back with more photos of them than flowers which is a novelty for me who normally donít do portraits.

f4.5 1/100th sec zoom at 70mm natural light

Thank you for your comments and appreciative clicks. A huge thank you to Dave 87 for giving me his Award. I'm well pleased as I like this photo very much.

Have a nice day. The week-end is nearly there.

#8 could be seen anywhere, the children playing mama for their pets-- charming views of children and their play-- also liked #11-- might just be a rich and powerful drink!

More loverly portraits with V1, 2, and 4 being my favourites. Beautifully composed, like the way you have gone in close and used the landscape format cutting off the top of their heads which has placed the emphasis on those smashing faces. Enjoyed also the other shots and seeing the environment these children live in and what they were doing at the time.

Excellent shots, JN. No. 5 is my fave.

It is always nice to see how loving these kids are with their pets - and sure a better toy than the barbies! Happy kids, great portraits,
