gorgeous one, maciej!
the look, the concentration obvious even on her forehead, the older book, the bokeh, the smiles, the colors, the whisper while writing - all part of a well told story about real people and their problems! well seen and crafted!

Look at those learning eyes!
This photo is like a lesson for showing us how the soul of a rich photo is concantrated in a single spot. I looked and looked at it again, each time reaching her smart gaze. So full of life and beauty. Congrats and thank you for sharing this.

Great photo Maciej. Really good. Nothing to complain about the color rendition. The blues are really where they are supposed to be. The light, once again, is superb, clearly denouncing the main subject right there in the middle. Those learning eyes are amazing. Also like the timid smile in the right... Really really good.

i love this shot maciek! they seem very studious and concentrated! great light .. did you use some kind of white sheet or maybe a fill in flash?

A great capture of this scene!
I like so much the expression on the women faces, not only the ones on the front row, but also in the back ones.
The tonal range is so good, a very appropiated exposure.
I like very much also the composition made, with the inclination of the row formed by the women.
Congratulations and thanks for share it.
My best regards,

Again wonderful timing here, Maciej - yu must have waited nti just the right moment, that one look...up whil the other two's eyes were lowered. A strong, striking image.
Wish you all the best with your publications, man. God knows you deserve it!

Very nice Maciek. A very good bit of timing; the expression is perfect. Nice control of the directional light too. Nice photo.
Are you working full time as a photographer now?

Congratulations getting the assignment, very poignant shot for it, especially the gaze of the one in the middle, says it all, the value of education, empowerment. Nice work.

Good stuff, Maciek.
The photo is a 'smart photo'. It says exactly what it says...
No phony story attached to the oblivious picture.
The most difficult kind of photography... To have meanings easily perceived by the wiever.
That kind of photography never be outdated or disputed.
It will last as long as we, the people - will last.
It's simple like that.
You better believe !
Czymsie sie, kozacze...
