Default Una chola de Bolivia

Here's a photo I took at Isla-del-Sol, Lake Titikaka, Bolivia...

What you think?

It's an especially good photo. Did you do more of the same subject? I ask this because the partly hidden person on the right is disturbing to the eye, and if you have a picture where you don't see her, it might be better.

YES.....you captured the look that makes one contemplate about a lifestyle so different. Two Thumbs Up !
I would have fun with this shot and try cropping out about half of the left person's head that is covered in the foreground. After cropping that would leave a little portion of the persons shoulder in the background, and a little bit of someones head so I would clone that out which wouldn't be to difficult since the background is not in focus. Then cloning out the little part of the face on the right and the hands so that the material would appear to go up to the face as in the girl. If cloning out the hands is to difficult just the face.
I'm asking to much, oh well give me a shot at it. '

Thanks bcoultry and John for your comments.

John, I didn't quite understand the way you want to clone out the other woman...
I've tried cropping the picture but it didn't came out too well. I like the subject to be in the center.

As for the woman, I haven't taken any more pictures of her. However I have many more "people" shots from the same place.


Anyway, be sure that next time I'll be in Bolivia, I tell the woman from the right to step aside for a sec...

That's a nice shot! Can I ask what they were all looking at?

Or is this a normal street scene?

Regards,

Steve

I do have Photoshop (version 8, CS)

At the time I was shooting this picture, there was a small festival in the island. The picture was taken in a small street near by.
