[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Again from my recent trip to the Gambia (see other images on my trekearth pages) this was my taxi porter shot against a whitewashed wall for max contrast. Used a flash, decreased saturation, increased contrast, sharpened eyes only.

İnteresting portrait

it's a strong portrait....
for the reflexes the eyes seem to continue the pink mood....
I like this portrait

Great capture, lovely portrait. Is this a male or female? Good skin tones, well done.


Hi Palu,

Excellent portrait... agree with Annagrace... the asexual nature of this portrait adds to the interest. Job description implys Male, Pink Hat implys Female, Face gould go either way.

Very attractive all the same.

I think that you did a good job of processing this image... thanks for the notes

The androgyne with the pink hat and the glance lost in its universe...
Nice portrait !!!

Nice portrait. MI like the idea of sharpening the eyes but the reflectionin the pupils is maybe too complex and I would be tempted to remove or tone down some of it.

Great shot


Wow...excellent job, reminds me of United Colours of Benetton ads! Great job!

Very strong portrait Paul. Nice sharpnes...

Man or woman ? No matter, this is a beautiful portrait, Paul. Reflection is the eyes is amazing. Very good job, TFS !

Very Good Portrait, Lighting, Colour Perfect.
Great Face.
Keep It Up.

Excellent portrait. Very fine job.

Great Portrait,Great Colours,GREAT NATURE,
Bravo Paul.


Okay, great portrait, no doubt about it
But can it be that your rating is so high, because every other day this photo turns up at the start-up screen under 'featured destinations'?
I wonder how TL webmasters do this. I see every time the same photos getting loads of exposure.
Who can enlighten me ?


What incredible features, I think the pink hat leads our eye to her eyes, I wonder what shes thinking??? Great Shot Val

Great capture, lovely portrait. Is this a male or female? Good skin tones, well done.

if you are still on TL pls delete this shot - it comes continuously on the front page of TL and to be honest it drives people nuts

That's a wonderful picture.
A breathtaking composition, of dark shinning skin higlighted by the background and the hat.
You render wonderfully that burning glance some african people have.


Have a nice day,
