The people of Madagascar (Malagasy) were so charming and hospitable towards me during my travels. They seemed to like having their photo taken.

Thanks for viewing.

Hi Martyn,
Good work, nice model. BNeautiful portrait!!

Hi Martyn
Very cute! My sister visited Madagascar and says that the inhabitants are African-Indonesian descent!?

With a portrait like this it would be much nicer to see if a little more off-centre, she is placed so much in the centre of the frame it becomes a bit dull. Perhaps a tighter crop as an alternative.

Nice work though

Hi Martyn,

Lovely portrait of the little girl Martyn. Maybe a tighter crop would show her off a little better.
Nice scan, very detailed.

Great character study Martyn.
Almost National Geographic material.
I think Peters point is good ... perhaps a few cms cropped off the right side might enhance the composition.
Lovely sho though.
Well done.

Good photo shot, Martyn.

The expression is wonderful. The girl seems as if she is trying very hard to look serious for the camera but is struggling to hold back her smile..
