|All natural light. There is a white concrete wall in front of her (i.e. to my right). The sun is shining on it, and it is the reflection of that light which is lighting her while she is standing in the shade.|

The light and the dress are beautiful
But the nose falls in to the cheek (almost never works at least for me)
Another great work in my view - I've used natural reflective sources myself and they can work very well, as you've shown here. Good depth of field and pleasing bokeh in your background, I love the 'rim light' effect down the side of her face and the diffuse spread of light across her dress.
My only criticism would be the bright sunlit flower or leaf just behind her head, and the distant sunlit branch on the right ... I know you're proud of your untouched photos, and so you should be, but sometimes PP is a good thing in my opinion! It's like a dash of pepper on a fine steak. ;)

Congratulations for the beautiful album of your portrait of these wonderful women.
I don't have a lot of words technically to speak in portrait, because I never made any, and the one that had left were luckily.
But for me, your series is beautiful and she has a beautiful color.
I classify your series, as the one that I did of the Indians of the high of Amazon.
