Old woman at market

This lady was selling chilies at a busy morning market in Rantepo, Toraja.

I found it difficult to communicate with a lot of people around this area, as Indonesian isnt always spoken. Luckily, her friend could translate Bahasa Indonesia to Torajan and I got the shot.

I did a color and mixed color / B+W version, but I couldnt get the balance with the skin tones correct.
