' The Red Light District '

....Chinatown after dark....

....when dark falls, red lantern was lighted in front of
thier mansion,beauties sitting by the roadside....
Sweet adorable shy smile to those pass by......
Daily......weekly....monthly....that's life
for some of them that hidden in the dark.

I like it very much... I am curious, how did you post-process this? some diffuse glow? anything else?

A piece of art!!! Could have been a painting.
I love the way these lady's of the night are dressed. The ones in our red light district hardly wear any fabric at all. These lady's look so sophisticated!!
:D

You work is just so beautiful. I love the muted color palette in this. It could almost be out of another century.

very impressive ...
and also very beautiful :)

but, if i can give you a tip ...
The space behind them is to big. You can try to crop right side (all this black shape) ... but the frame will be to tall, so crop the top too ;)

This is a beautiful photo, the quietness of it contrasts so much with the imagery that "red light district" conjures up. It can be a very sensitive subject, a very brash, ugly thing - but you have shown the humanity of these two women, it feels like a step back to see the reality. It feels soft, and it's very touching. :+fav:

Wow, I would have thought you would speak something else but I've never been out of my country so I don't really know that much. If I ever get a chance to travel, I'll think about stopping by :)
