All of the faces are great in this photo but I'm hoping you have one without the hand coming up you could post. Terrific expressions on the kids' faces and the use of b&w is very effective.
I really wish that hand wasn't there. Sorry.

Hello Yannis. The closer the better. This was the motto of the major photographers R. Capa. It is exciting to look at these faces. I like the black and white photograph very well.

We both know how difficult it is to take a good sharp shot in such a spontanous situation.
This is what the 200 viewers so far don`t understand or never tried...
Of course it´s not a pinsharp shot with perfect light but I like this group of young boys, everybody wants your (cameras) attention.
I like the youyfull differrent expressions and B&W works well her.

I came across this photo through a hickup of TE. I was following a completely different theme and voila, I saw this picture. I am thankful TE has these hickups every now and then. I come across beautiful photos I would otherwise have not seen. I love the composition, the use of focus and the choice of B&W. I think the raised hand adds a special charm. TFS.
