un superbe photo de groupe: les couleurs, les détails et les regards tous différents.

I love the rich colors in this photo, and the group of boys, only one of whom is looking in your direction. The boy framed by the wooden window is lovely, and so is the drum. There are so many wonderful details to enjoy.

This photo is jjust marvellous. What a fantastic group, and such fantastic colours and light. Although I know from experience that Bhutan in many ways is a quite modern country this looks purely medieval in the 21st century. I love the look of those boys and how they have wrapped their clothes in various personal manners. And the guy looking beside the curtain is just so great.
Once again you have shown us one of your best photos.

The details here, Kasia, are fantastic! The painted filigree and keyhole window openings, the plaster coming of the lath on the left, and yes, the broken drum. Most amazing of all is that you show five fantastic faces -- and four of them are more interested in something else, rather than looking at your camera!

musze przyznac,ze ci mnisi sa znakomitym "tematem" zdjec.Nie tylko ze wzgledu na tak wyraziste,czerwone(no,poza jednym wyjatkiem)stroje,ale tez ze wzgledu na to jak wyrazem twarzy,postawa oddaja emocje i uczucia.Jakby kazdy z nich byl zainteresowany w tym momencie czyms innym.Znakomity portret!No i do tego ten zepsuty beben dodajacy calej scenie bardziej sugestywnego wyrazu.

this is a powerful and fascinating group portrait that looks timeless and even the rich warm colours contribute to this impression. There are five strong personalities in the frame and there's a strong bond that connects them as they are standing around the drum. The four of them are looking away, to the same direction, full of interest and one intense gaze into the lens seems enough to establish a connection with the viewer too. I love the colours and the textures as well as the feeling that we've turned back in time. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,

Beautiful portrait of these young monks, Kasia. The color is just marvelous - rich, clear, natural. I love the expressions and the detail is exquisite. Perfect exposure, lovely light. Just beautifully done! Many thanks and kindest wishes,

Ces novices semblent ravis de poser pour toi. Intéressant portrait de groupe, bien composé. Une lumière bien gérée pour cette photo de qualité.

I am impressed with the gorgeous colours of the monks robes. I see some are dressed very warmly. The drum makes an interesting centre of interest but what I like best is the monk looking through the window. A lovely group photo.
Kind Regards, Ann

To sa mnisi, ale jeszcze dzieci, mają ochotę na trochę zabawy, bardzo ładna, ale trochę smutna scenka

watching 'female' dancers? they look very focused! haha
this photo was taken in 2012, but there is nothing here that would give us that impression...it could very easily been taken 50 years ago.
love the attire, the dress, the colors, and the overall subjects.
wonderful photo to add to your collection.

This is a splendid group portrait. I love the colour harmony (not just in the clothes, but also in the building), and the fact that the eye-contact with the camera is reserved for just one of the group, which somehow justifies and validates the photograph.
