As we were cycling around Angkor, this group of children came running at us.
"Where are you from Mister?" one kid asked.
"India", I replied.
"Capital - New Delhi" was his pronto answer.
I was quite taken aback. Then I noticed the mischievous grin in the face of one of the boys. He had a key as a locket around his neck. The girl had a sad looking face. I wish I knew why.
I took their picture & showed them in the camera. The thrill in their eyes was a magical moment. The glint in their eyes were amazing

Hello Angshu. I like this one a lot, the curious looks of the charming youngsters are nicely shown, and the simplicity of the surroundings makes your three subjects stand out even better. Nice storytelling in your note, too.

Hi Angshu - congratulations for this one, I can't decide which of the 3 kids is more charming! The orange t-shirt certainly makes it colorful. Best of course -> the look in their eyes. Cheers!

Thats a superb multi portrait. Their expressions very natural and original. The spark in their eyes and the way they have leaned to pose you is nice. And a interesting note. TFS.

Good morning, Angshuman!
I admire you shot. The two kids who looked directly to you had the most intelligent pair of eyes. They are honest, strong, and decided. They told me they enjoyed being friends of you. For that idea, the boy on left became a distraction (his keys are another story!). Had this been my own picture, I would crop as in workshop.

Very well seen and very well done, my friend.

travelling through your gallery I just checked it out as a powerful photography with children. Excellent composition. Darun chhobi. I like most their innocent and curious gaze and obviously your chosen POV. Nice skin tone. Excellent one. The cropped version in workshop is also very good. Class 1 shot... Tfs.
