Fine composition. Lots of colours. Good balance between the houses and the persons in front of them. What´s the event?

En raffinerad komposition med personerna uppställda på samma sätt som husen bakom. Det ser verkligen genomtänkt ut. Är det en bilverkstad bakom?

Nice scene - how differently people react to the camera!

wicked picture, i love the composition and the moment you caught. for me it's not about the "mighty men and little boys", i like the hut in the background which looks like someone cut it half and in the foreground you have two people look like joined together, quite funny coincident. take care

I like the composition of the photo. Excellent balance of colours! And of course, the expressions these people's faces!...

What a great scene from Benin - different poses but they all look happy. Nicely composed with the houses behind. TFS, Marlene

This is a fantastic capture, not only for the wonderful subject matter, but for the poses and expressions of the people in the image. Such a sense of pride is so easy to say. Beautifully caught!
