Nice interesting portrait.I like the unusual angle.You caught a lovely expression on the girls face.Nice and clear,good light.Shame you couldn't get them wholly in the frame.

Not the best framing tough.

Hi Clara, this is a great perspective on these two cute kids. I love the curious look in the older child's eyes.

I think I know why you framed the picture in this manner- to emphasize those eyes and the openeness of spirit. The eyes, the window of the soul. In a way the embrace of the little one ,together with the two heads, seems to compose a HEART. Beautiful.

A wonderful shot of these guileless but somehow beguiling children. Superb pov, and the colours on the little one's shirt really add something to this. The eyes of the older child are beautifully photographed. The framing doesn't bother me, given the angle and height of the camera. Andrew

Nice viewpoint on the children - the expressions on the faces, especially on the younger child - are great.

Just found this shot after looking at your 'l'il mama'. I love this! The older sister looks very mischievious and interested in the camera - very different from your other shot.
Superb.....I'm off to have a good look around your other stuff..!

I really like this shot. Nice angle. These kids look like they could live here in the DR.

Hello Clara, it was a great idea to compose the shot from the top. The eye contact is fantastic too, great job!

Well chosen PoV for this lovely small "mama".

You've a nice collection of african shots. This one is touching. I admire the contrast between these two pair of eyes. A wonderful example of humanity in a context probably difficult for these children.
I don't know if you've tried a B&W version. I propose to you a WS. I like B&W for pictures taken in Africa. I hope you'll like it.
