A Face in the Crowd
I was walking in at a town's market near Yangoon which as absolutely packed. It was shoulder to shoulder, slow and really hard to navigate. I had my camera in my hand (dangerously so as I somehow always do) and I was enamored with this young lady. I had to quickly shoot her actually without looking through the eyepiece and got lucky. It was crooked and I had to crop, but I caught her at a good time looking back at me.

I love the juxtaposition of that hat and the sand on her face. Tells a story that makes you wonder!

Well done. I like the upward look at the camera, and the shallow depth of field. Also excellent sharpness, especially given the shooting conditions with people packed all about you. The eyes are captivating.
