I think the pole adds to the title :) I see so much of who she is just by looking at the expression on her face.

Don't listen to them. The bamboo pole adds to this picture a lot. I'm surprised this shot did not do better. I guess the people prefer those glamorized plastic looks of the top two winners.

Gorgeous. 9. Would be a 10 if the pole weren't bisecting her head.

The bamboo in the front is distracting.

The bamboo really detracts from an otherwise beutiful portrait. Also, is it the lens or the angle of the shot that makes her face seem unnaturally wide?

Beautiful- her eyes and the lines on her face make me want to hear her story.

I hope other voters aren't distracted by that stick. I think it makes the photo. Nice work.

That bamboo is in the way.... ;-)

The bamboo spoils this for me..

This will probably win a ribbon. People in the west love the taste of the foreign ethnicity... 9

Lovely clarity: intriguing subject. I find the bamboo stick distracting: it cuts your picture into 2 pieces
