Similar hill tribes can be found in adjacent northern Thailand, Laos, & Vietnam. The interesting 'headwear' come 'support', is what helps to make this shot, as well as the direct eye contact. Differential focus may have helped to isolate & emphasize the 2 women from the background. Good composition & eyecatching colour.

Default To ChrisJ: Differential focus

Ha! this was shot with my clunky old and SLOW to respond Kodak. Getting it to focus, shoot and refresh ready for the next shot was onerous. Never mind controls. It is now a paper weight; I love my new Olympus C-750 so much more! Wish I had a digital SLR though ;)

Hi Ian

You did very well then to even get the quality of image that you got.

What did you think of my night shot of HK, & the Malaysian tea fields ? It seems a bit odd that some images I posted get a score of 18, & others zero. Another post made the exact same comment to me, so I'm not alone on that score.

I was very impressed with some of your work around Yangshuo on your website. Have you posted any of it to TE yet ?

The big drawback of digital is that archiving of images often suffers. Once an image is deleted, it's gone forever. However, I must get a digital camera next time I win Gold Lotto ! (As a backup to my SLR).

Cheers, Chris
