A child peeps over the wall of a stair case in a budget hotel in Tsavo West. I was staying their as a base for game drives in the nearby national park... and the curious kids who hung around the hotel were full of energy and excitement.

Wow, what a pair of eyes, so intensely dark and deep, I like the sparks on them. Great shot. Very artistic. I enjoyed it.

A superb portrait, with very effective tight framingk, & good use of a shallow dof. Wonderful sharpness around the eyes. I like the strong resemblance to a sepia tone, in this image. Tfs!

Yes you are right... ENERGY AND EXCITEMENT swirls in those beautifull eyes...
An image that strikes !!
All the best, dear friend.

That's a great one. Excellent colour management. Great details and absolutely gorgeous approach to
a minimalistic portrait.

Amazing emotions with such simple shot...Just like a dammed water. So piercing & so deep.

Nice catch Dave. Love the darker tones, letting those big bright eyes really hoild the viewer. Composition is also excellent, especially for a shot like this where it's more of a snap and hope thing (with the way kids move). Really nice, nothing to distract, good focus and sharp.

Smart portrait. Superb composition in deep mood.

Je me pose la question de savoir ce que regarde cet enfant avec un tel regard.

this is a very beautiful shot, and i like the use of the understated tones - it doesn't look like you're in a hotel at all!

The Sepia colouring on here is great and you caught this child at exactly the right time with perfect sharpness on the eyes. They say that eyes are the windows to the soul... and I think that this applies here. Beautiful image!

(in my fav,)

A class compo, producing a lot of sensations... This glance is really sad and troubling, the boy seems to be so shy...
And you realized that perfectly : off-centering, light management, dof...

Beautiful, sweet and touching picture! Great moment you caught.
noborders (1010) 2008-04-13 11:55
Great close up, David ! It's interesting to see how much one can guess just by the expressions of the eyes : this kid is not smiling, but observing very intently : compliments !
adores (40392) 2008-04-22 16:55
What a great portrait, even if you're just showing his eyes, they are so expressive. Guess you need nothing else here. The photo is fantastic, very well framed, great light, I really like it!

Some real good stuff in your gallery David
I did not know it so far! No wonders, we're not on TE at the same hours!
I'll have to browse it more carefully especially in the places that I like best India, Tanzania and Kenya ...
Back to you sooner or later

Hi David. Stunning work.Its not just those big eyes so alive and filled with curiosity, but it's also the forehead of a child- still soft and almost translucent.the skin texture is so fine, full of the subtlest shadings. Great stuff. If i had taken this shot, I would definitely paint this captivating face. Regards. Klaudio.
