On my first day in Tibet, after crossing the border with Nepal in Kodari, we headed to Zhang Mo to spend the night
We stopped to rest or eat and in one of these isolated places I met this very cute brunch of children
I was wandering walking slowly ( at more of 4000 mts) when the eldest girl watching my camera asked me ( by signs ) to take a photo of her
Of course I accepted and she run and returned with the other ones, never knew if they are her brothers or friends
I wanted to take the photo of all of them in front of the turquoise wall but they keep quiet only a moment and then run away

un hermoso retrato de los niños, todos muy hermosos y llenos de vivacidad. me gusta los colores de la imagen. bonita luz y detalles, el niño menor se parece un astronauta. una lástima no poder ofrecer a ellos nuestras fotos.

Great spontaneous portrait Maria! Don't think you could have composed it any better, even if you had more time.

What an endearing photo of the children, complemented by a personal note. The oldest child appears to be protective, having stretched her arms over her chage... possibly her sibling. I see that you were in Tibet exactly a year ago.

nice the portrait of the little children on the foreground with the older behind to complete the beautiful memorial shot.
I like the light and the colour management as the clarity of the image.

This is a very nice group portrait, with an interesting variety of expressions. I wonder if you were able to get a copy of the photograph to the sitters, or their proud parents...

I think what is especially wonderful about this photo, besides the fact that they are all little cuties, is that the older girl asked to have you take this photo...and went to get all the subjects for you, too! I have traveled close to Tibet, and the people have just the most wonderful faces...very nicely captured by you here, too!

It is always nice to see the photo of the children .The 4 children in the front row look very cute and I like the way the older girl is stretching her hand as if to protect the younger ones. Beautiful colors and facial expressions.

Fantastico este grupo de niños, que encanto todos pendientes de la camara, es una imagen muy tierna, la diversidad de sus ropas y colores hace una imagen muy viva, magnifica la nitidez y luminosidad, todo ello nos hace disfrutar con esta gran captura.
Pasa un buen dia.

Elle semble bien fière cette grande soeur de présenter toute sa famille. Les vêtements très colorés apportent à la composition beaucoup de vie.Une photo bien nette et pas toujours facile de réussir la photographie de groupe !

It is realy, realy a Wonderful Picture of Daily Life. Nice Frame. Nice colour, contrast and sharpness. Excellent shot. Nice POV. TFS.

Very colourful interesting relaxed feel image. quite eyecatching, a real blend of fashions and culture. The convenient arrangement of a posed group photo, yet without the boring posed-bit and the grouping are so good. This closer pov would certainly give a more intimate feel and so attached in the group. Nice characterisation and the colour tones add to the presentation, nicely done.

a wonderful and captivating portrait of the group of lovely children. I like very much the tight framing and the diverity of natural colours against the original backdrop. Sharpness is excellent, all the textures are smooth and natural too, so becoming to the theme. I love the many levels of interaction, with you, among the members of the group, with unseen factors behind the lens. I also love the delightful capture of the children's mood and character. I'm sure the adorable girl's invitation to take their picture was a very good omen on the first day of your visit. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great week,

You're capturing well this portrait by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see so cute kids with pure face. It's impressive that they are wearing colorful clothes, too. Also at the time of when, a child's pure expression seems to be an angel.
Have a nice week.

Always great when you can get a nice shot of the children - sometimes difficult if the older members are around [ which I guess one can understand ] I hope life is being kind to you... I like this image very much - totally natural.
