It was evening, I met them. A Bhutanese woman and her child in the courtyard of a monastery. She was on her way to home after a hectic routinised daily work. On my request she had agreed to give me permission to take a snap. The face of the child attracts me too much because it looks so much innocent and he/she had total faith to his/her responsible mother, who carries (by a cloth tied to her) him/her, and take care even in her working hours.
I took this shot at Phuntsholing, a boarder town of Bhutan and India You can reach there from North Bengal's Joygaun. Indians not have to carry passport or visa to reach Phuntsholing (but have national identity card).
IT IS A REPOST. I cropped some portion to reframed it and increased the sharpness and contrast a bit. Adjust the light by levels and adjust colours a bit also. Hope you'll like it.

Its sad that your flower got deleted.
Well a nice portrait depicting mother and child intimacy. Good tones and natural skin colors. The flash is managed well here else it would have given a very harsh effect here. Nice portrait.

A good portrait of mother and child. Interesting contrast between the two faces; the mother rather harassed and tired, the child wide eyed and full of innocence. One wonders what kind of life he will grow up to inherit.

That's a good portrait shot of young mother and kid. Looks very good. Excellent flash management to produce vibrant color hues, in particular the golden hues. Fine sharpness well done. Thanks for your critique of my vegetation shot from Yan.

much better, that's for sure. I see here the importance of the post processing. But there must be a good composition in the background and this is the case. Great improvement!

Good and relevant repost with a image processing which develops the portrait of this young woman and her child. I like the use of the flash which illuminates these faces and the good clearness of the image. A new treatment the photograph which gives more glare to the image. Well done Subhendu.
With all my friendships and with soon,
