Taken in Myanmar, these are the traditional people from Shan State. The little girl was waiting to drink water. They were hiking on the mountain.

I like how your subjects are lit just enough to bring out all of those colors and that you have blurred the backdrop so they really stand out.

wow that's an amazing photo! I kept staring at it, to find out what exactly got my attention, and realized that everything did.. the colors, the great focus, the water drops, the face expressions on each girl, the way the little girl is holding her basket...etc

EVERYTHING.. well done and congratulations, it truly deserves the 1st place..!
