Awesome capture.

interesting image. my only gripe is that i prefer images shot closer to the subject's eye-level, rather than the shooter's eye-level. i think it offers perspectives that allow for more connection with the subject...

Funny how so many here in the US are miserable, having everything, and those in the world with nothing are content. Thank you for sharing this marvelous depiction of life from the other side.

This is too tight and devoid of context, really needs some air. A wide lens, a different (probably, lower) point of view, and a better composition would make this shot interesting. Here I only see a fixation of a fact, which most will find interesting from the cultural/ethnic point of view, but not from a photographic one. 4

Fantastic moment to capture - one of my favourites.

your frame is to wide...
01/17/2007 11:38:19 AM
This is really great. All of those faces of the children. The whites of their eyes just pop from the picture. Love the added doggy as well. This is worthy of a National Geographic expose. It would be an excellent study in BW or sepia too, since it already has such a monochromatic theme.8

Fantastic capture - I even love the dog! Such a sweet glimpse into a whole different way of life and yet in some ways they don't seem much different than my own kiddos! Back to bump you up to 9.

Nice shot.. Seems like you might have gone a bit too far with the dodging of the eyes...

I like this shot a lot. The composition is great and there is plenty of interest to hold a viewers eye. The focus is great and the contrast range is perfect. The white(ned?) eyes look a little unnatural to me, but are not a huge detractor.

Nice photo, lighting is a bit harsh, some of the children in the background are lost in the shadows.
