Excellent. Really like your shot..

Very nice shot indeed, though I've voted slightly under as I don't think it fits particularly well with the theme - it is fascinating culturally but doesn't show a cultural event. Nevertheless I love shots of people and I thought this photo was really excellent.

light balance is in need of some assistance (it took me awhile, but I've become a fan of the histogram at the insistance of some fellow photographers)

Nice capture of the boys. The cropping of the image seems a little off to me and I'm not sure how well it fits the challenge.

having trouble fitting this into the challenge

I fail to see the "event" part of the subject....
Would have voted higher if the subject was something like "people of the world"

Not sure how this is an event, but I'll assume it is. Nice colour tones. The guy in the left in the white shirt drawa my eye away from the subjects. Perhaps waiting a few seconds for him to leave the frame would have really improved this shot. Also, a bit dark on the smaller boys face. Getting them to turn just slightly so the light hit their eyes better would have also help. 5 from me.

I wish the shot were slightly brighter, but, even as it is, I think it's awesome. Nice clarity, great composition, brilliant choice of subject.

*You miss the "10" because of the somewhat low brightness, and because I don't think this really fits the challenge. For the latter reason, I'd give your submission a much lower rating, but I just really like this photograph.
