I can actually create a Namaste series. I had a lot of kids greeting me "Namaste" with matching hand gesture. It is very endearing.

Here's the little boy doing just that. He was with his momin Baktapur's Durbar Square. The red in his hand is the thing related to their offering. I came really close and was actually glad that he from my poin-of-view, one of his eyes was not visible. Nepal is just like that. Welcoming to tourists, they still kept a lot of mystery within them.

Namaste everyone.

Espectacular. Una mirada nítida e inocente junto a un gesto y un color en las manos que añade cierta incertidumbre a la situación. Me gusta mucho, una gran foto.

Hi Manny,
Again here is a very nice portrait in a natural atmosphere. The boy is lovely. I like the high contrast you played here.

Very nice, thank for showing us the beauties of Nepal in such a beautiful way. The boy is adorable and his red fingers are very interesting. Especially when placed infront of his eye.
Great portrait, TFS!


Hi Manny,
Still a wonderfull portrait, i feel the red thing in his hands are overdone... i don't know what it is... maybe ink, but... i wish it was sligtly more discret.

Very nice contrast and colours. You've adjusted saturation a bit, I suppose. Very interesting are his hands covering his right eye.
Very good.

Beautiful shot - with a photojournalistic feel - very National Geographic. I love the exposure. I am drawn to that eye. Very sweet child. Thanks for your note too.

Your compo is wonderfull and your pp as always fantastic :))your shot as such a mood...splendid and heart touching!Congratulations :)

Hi Manuel, you caught this little boy's expression so well. Very good lighting, nice mischievous face, great details and blured bg is perfect.

Very well done. Take care, Yan
