Smiling Indian lady, by JoJo

JoJo is another DPNow member we have featured previously on Picture of the Day, although not for a while. Jo has a treasure trove of pictures in her gallery, many of which are from travels around the globe. Today's pick is one from a trip to India back in 2009. There is something very cheery about this, otherwise typical, photo of a poor Indian woman. You can see her smiling, her eyes are smiling too - as if to say, of course you can take my picture even if I am a little embarrassed. Although the shadows are soft and the light a little flat, I do like the tonality of the colours and I detect a subtle vignette which rounds off the picture well. Would I have cropped off the detail in the top of the frame - maybe, maybe not!
