Wow.

the amount of texture going on there is amazing.

depth of field is near perfect, perhaps a bit more background blur, but even with the amount just now its great!

and this not from a DSLR! I commend you!

great pic

composition wise, you leave too much headroom space.

put/crop the eyes 1/3 of the pic and it will be great.

It goes to show that it's not down to having the best equipment. Even so, the S5700 isn't a bad bridge camera.

I will echo Enche Zein's comment - a much tighter crop is needed, and I'm tempted to clone out the hair on the shawl. The contrast is just about right.

10x all for your replies!

I will try a tighter crop these days, just to have time :) maybe later.

the camera's autofocus works very well in birght light, as the manul focus isn't very usable :(. I'll try to clone the hair out, just to see wha't happening 8)

Again, thanks all for your replies,
HNV

From what i knw i think there are alot of old people in romania :P

The new crop is better, and the hair on the scarfs is a bit distracting but apart from that the shot is really good
