Blazing scarlet of a little girl's clothes attracted the eye, so i shot this scene at a distance so as not to interrupt them.
Taken at a courtyard in Grand-Popo, Benin at 17:12.
PS. On the day i took lunch with a friend of mine at a small restaurant. the photos of Delicious Pizza and Lunch Bill have been uploaded for gourmet photographers of TE.

Nice compo of these 5 kids playing with much attention and concentration
Of course the red dress is very eye catching
Somewhat bothered however by the overexposure in the sand behind them
have a nice sunday evening
Best to you

Meraviglioso il gruppo di bambini africani! Bello il loro atteggiamento nei gesti del gioco, bellissima l'unica bambina nel suo vestitino scarlatto! Bella luce!

This is well spotted opportunity, the power strong color has great influence on viewers and this is the best example. All seems to be so preoccupied in full concentration and your viewpoint is excellent, part of the game is well seen. Impressive compo, colors, clarity and contrast. Nice capture of daily life here. Well done. Best rgds

Nice kids anjoying friendly games. They have placed themselves very well for your composition and the girl in scarlet is a marvellous eye-catcher. I also like the little boy in the colourful trousers sitting in the sand watching the game. The light is very pleasant and the sharpness is admirable.

Bonne journée Isabelle

I like this daily life shot.
Children are indeed a great area for photographers.
Good frame and colors.
Fine reportorial photo.
josepmarin (58359) 2011-03-08 1:13
this one is your 300th photo presented on this site. Congratulations on the quality of your works and of your gallery!
I like the spontaneity of the scene that you offer us in this composition, with the children who play in this courtyard, which you have caught in a very adorable image.
The scarlet clothes of the little girl is a real eye-catcher.
Both complementary photos in WS are a good invitation for to taste these pizzas.
A great work.

Hi Hisashi. A beautiful and very tranquil photo with plenty of atmosphere. The children are fully occupied with themselves and have no eye for the world around. Excellent seen and presented. Compliment. Rgds, Wolfgang.

A charming portrait of these children quietly playing together. The harsh backlighting was not in your favour but you have managed it well and the image is very successful.
papagolf21 (102388) 2011-03-09 1:39
Bonjour, cher Hisashi,
Tout l'art du photographe est de se faire oublier, eh bien ! ici, vous avez su utiliser cette méthode pour donner à cette composition toute la beauté qu'elle mérite.
adramad (45976) 2011-03-09 14:51
A delightful scene, entertaining children in their games, not be aware of the camera, are the best times, so your picture looks so fresh and with a touch of naturalness, certainly the color of the dress of the girl at one point that captures the attention.
I love that pizza is looking at the portrait of WAS., I suppose in a place so far should be your tasting enjoyment.
Ideal brightness and color.
All the best.
robmal (2239) 2011-03-09 23:48

lucasgalodoido (22489) 2011-04-07 14:55
very interesting this picture of kids playing in this poor place. I like! Great job, my friend.
Nard (6972) 2011-05-15 9:10
Beautiful and lovely picture of these children playing. I like the good sharpness but not to strong, the little blurr on the background and the soft light.
marcan44 (6307) 2011-09-14 8:45
The best photo are those in which children do not realize the objective is framing them.
In fact, your shot very discreet. The chiloren understand that your presence was not noticed and seem spontaneous and real.
