    love the tones here, the lighting… so powerful!! really is beautiful to look at!!

  • Thank you very much! I think the rendition is good because the woman was absolutely beautiful and wearing also a very nice dress. She was smiling, focussed and happy doing her work. You add on the top of that, the amazing scenery of Zanzibar, the sun in Africa and that’s what we have!
