on the contrary I think wording is needed ;-) it would be nice to read who she is, why she is dressed like this, etc etc etc.
Great portrait but a bit dark and more shaprness wouldn't hurt, few days ago Manny posted a similar portrait here:

well.... I am sorry to hear that you have nothing interesting to say about subjects you photograph, even as interesting as this one.
Take a look at the following pictures from Tibet, they will show you that there is a middle ground between writing nothing and a complete overview of tibet.

etd etd etc

after all, it's much easier to learn about the world with interesting captions accompanying the picture than without them.

Well, yes I do normally wirte some sort of descriptive words (check some of my photos out...)for my photos...but, to be honest this one was tough, and there are something inexpressible...which just left me wordless...It was on the route from Tibet to Xijiang near the bankong Co Lake...actually I did not know where exactly I was due to the remoteness and lack of detailed topo map (though I had been on this route twice before) all I have is a rough idea of which direction to go and the next "larger twon" to be expected(indicated on the not-so-useful road map).....her face gave me the impression that is oppressive and memorable...I know very little Tibetan language, couldnt really communicate with her...what I did was simply stop and greet with body language to make sure I m heading the right way..........maybe I should spent some more time with her..or..who knows....
