A photo already posted in the Italian section with the title “Alone” (Sola). I decided to resubmit it in this English section after the comment by Jack Brooks which gives the title of this re-posting

I am very honoured for having inspired a great artist

Excellent angle. At the same high as the model.Clever use of the DOF. Fine, natural colors. Great picture again, Sergio.
Greetings, Cees.

this picture touches my heart!



Christian Stoehr, 3.05.2006 at 22:34h

The picture says alot, it talks to you. I don`t realy want to comment on your camera work wich is excellent, because I`m focused on the story the image tells. I think thats the point of great photography. Who cares about the lense.

Alexandra B, 3.05.2006 at 22:42h

great captured her great facial expression!

Abdul Khaliq, 3.05.2006 at 23:23h

This is nature unvieled beauty. Another Life on ths same planet.
Excellent Sergio.

Peter Kis kalóz, 4.05.2006 at 3:47h

Well done as always! Great moment of an other world!
Regards, Peter

John Holmes, 4.05.2006 at 4:09h

the angle of approach and her turn is superb. you show great respect for your subjects. jh

Christoph Hammann, 4.05.2006 at 4:35h

Her look makes a world of difference. Image this picture with her eyes downcast: it'd be your typical third-world-child-in-need-of-aid picture. This is surprising and fresh.
Greetings, Christoph

Jutta Washington, 4.05.2006 at 7:16h

Victor Servián, 4.05.2006 at 15:58h

Excelente, como siempre.

Daniel Avasilichioaei, 4.05.2006 at 17:10h

Beautiful composition, excellent colors, perfect DOF.
A very good documentary portrait...

Dietmar Eckell, 4.05.2006 at 17:54h

as usual perfect camera work: great colors and angel. but what i really like about this angel is her proud expression - this 'i am facing my fate' -look. fresh and strong and not asking for mercy.

Sarah Burg, 4.05.2006 at 21:18h

Fascinating picture - her expression is a mixture of haughtiness and pride and scorn - remarkable for someone so young!

Carlos Santa Maria, 4.05.2006 at 22:51h

Beautiful expression of the girl, great zomm selection. Oustanding sharpness and details. Bravo!

Miquel Manaut, 4.05.2006 at 22:57h

Always, GREAT.

Dominic Falcone, 5.05.2006 at 0:03h

One of those pics which draws you in and holds your attention.
Ita all been said.
great stuff Sergio!!

Konstantinos Papazoglou, 5.05.2006 at 10:50h

Excellent portrait Sergio, still haven't decided if I like this DOF or not...

Henry Fuchs, 5.05.2006 at 12:10h

Beautiful picture from a human being in a part of our world, where nearly nobody want`s to be...wrong decision as we can see!

Esti Eini, 5.05.2006 at 22:08h

Excellent portrait. beautiful expression. As allways, I like your work very much.

Raul Luis, 6.05.2006 at 5:31h

the colors always grab me!..............


Wen P, 6.05.2006 at 10:23h

Very tender portrait really. As usually your colors are stunning. Don't really care for calling human's angels though, I feel it somehow robs from our humanity. Angels don't have free will.

Vitor Emanoel, 6.05.2006 at 15:24h

another great work, Sergio. Another soul made captive by your powerfull lens. Ciao

Jack Brooks, 6.05.2006 at 15:49h

free will?what free will has this human angel?and when are we going to start to return that basic human right to people like turmi?

Gino Santa Maria, 7.05.2006 at 15:40h

What a magnificent shot. Once again you have captured what no amount of technical ability can: the humanity and the soul of the subject.

Bari Love, 8.05.2006 at 14:03h

Perfect again and again I see you begin to like the Digital pics RAW formats...molto bene come mai

Tomma Petcuscatti, 8.05.2006 at 14:48h

Sorry, but I do not find a reason why this pic should be in the gallery. Sergio hat a lot of pictures which are better ................

Dominic Falcone, 14.05.2006 at 20:52h


Wen P, 14.05.2006 at 20:52h

Whether it is Sergio's or not - I don't think it's a "gallery" shot although I like it as a simple portrait of a young girl. I don't see anything exceptional attributes about this particular image. Sorry Sergio and Luca.

Dennis Veldman, 14.05.2006 at 20:52h

i really like the DOF and the girl and how she looks towards me without shyness, she looks like a cool girl to me.

I will skip because i cannot decide at this moment.

love it though

PRO das wichtig?, 14.05.2006 at 20:52h



Luca Senatore, 14.05.2006 at 21:06h

Congrats Sergio..
The reason for my recommendation for this photo for the gallery is due to the fact that this picture is so different to many other photojournalistic photographs of African children. The way this photo was captured is different in the sense that it does not portray the hardship, poverty and other negative aspects normally associated with African children. Rather it portrays the beauty and innocence’s that many African children have.
With Kind Regards

Abdul Khaliq, 14.05.2006 at 21:53h

Agreed with Luca, well defined.
Congratz Sergio :)

Frank Terlien, 14.05.2006 at 22:09h

what a great photo Sergio....
If I can/could I will support this on the gallery.

Sergio Pessolano, 15.05.2006 at 11:34h

Pascal Viyer, 16.05.2006 at 17:29h

I like the "universal" attitude of the young Ethiopian.
