This beautiful young Indian woman was smiling at my wife. I feel the image expresses " The Divine " in her with that beaming smile. I also love the colours that she is wearing and the beautiful soft colours of her friends in the background.This image was originally shot on Velvia 50 Fujichrome at f2.8 hence the rich colours, there is virtually no post production adjustment, except a tiny adjustment with Levels in Photoshop.I hope that you love her as much as we do.
