This could be a photo in a country's tourism brochure. Very nicely done. It looks like French in the title, but I'm thinking it's not France. Beautiful all around. 9

03/15/2009 12:05:26 PM
great shot, saturation works, but just a bit oversharpened? I see some halo around the foreground boy especially.

A walk back in time. Nicely processed. The closer boys expression and upturned head causes the viewer to wonder what he is looking at.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Wonderful picture

This one snuck up on me. A very different shot and in a very good way. Really captures a feeling for the place. The composition is perfect and so is the lighting. I like the angle you were shooting from too.

I'm enjoying the clarity of this image. It almost looks a little too 'studio' for me though. Not sure how else to explain it. Great impact though.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Spectacular shot! The blues in the sky are very deep and the undulations in the clouds lead your eye in the direction straight through the image. Everything travels to the left except the point of origin, which is the young person standing contrapposto with a stern expression. And he is lead through by the hint of a background in the distance behind him at the foot of the hills.

Great image of these guys at work moving their asses along. Beautiful blue sky as a background. Very nice.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Great colors and details here in this rural farmland shot. I really like this capture for it tells the story of this place plus gives you a sense of 'experiencing' it - the only thing missing is the National Geographic story attached to this photo:-) I love how you captured the stance of the boy in the forefront as he has stopped to scan the horizon - a sort of lookout scout. The boy walking behind the two burros/donkeys is the herder. He makes sure that the donkeys stay together and do not stray to far. I wonder if these two boys are taking the donkeys back home or are venturing to the market perhaps to sell them. Well done - 8.

Outstanding human interest shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 12:51:04 PM
I LOVE THIS!!! The perspective is incredible and ironic, especially since one of the children is striking such a manly, strong pose. The fact that the donkey's are also small it makes the kids look more grown up. The colors and lighting are fantastic and the wide angle look also contributes to the funky distortion of scale. Very nice.

I had to use Google to translate this to "The Way of the Shepherd" - hope that is accurate. The expression on the lad is captivating. Well done!
