Doing people photography is something I have started absolutely new...But on the last trek I got some very interesting shot which compelled me to try my hand out on daily life or candids.
Now the story of this young man is he has been made to wear those rubber,extremely uncomfortable Gumboots and he is trying to walk wearing them..the scene is like after two teps he is down and his mother is picking him up,making him stand and again after two steps he is down...but this time his mom was busy working..so I was the only one he cud ask for help...I did pick him up but before that took this shot at 18 mm taking the cam closer to him..!!!
These kids are so so cute that nobody can hold himself back from taking a shot ...

Like you picture very much. Nice expression and really interesting the way the kid is dressed. About the color, I prefer it more desaturated. But that's me. Nice job! Good note.

No professional model can come up with an expression as natural as this!
This little face tells a story of disappointment, of obstacles that seem so huge in this age...
The wide adds to composition, pity you cut his right leg though..!

This little face transmits all helplessness of this world. A wonderful and a bit thought-provoking photo! Let's hope that he will be able "to stand on his own feet" when he's grown up
Greetings from Germany!

one of the "rules" I was told when starting photography was to do not shoot babies from the top, but here in was a must to do the opposite! Good idea, excellent moment capture, very good result!

I am feeling pity for this kid, he seems so helpless!!!
Wonderful shot from the top. Great colors.

Indranil: it's a clever, intiuitive POV and you executed it superbly. This is a very evocative photograph. Your colors (especially skin tone) is spot on. Congratulations. c

oh man! I love those cute expressions. I have seen my year and a half old niece doing the same,when they are helpless they act cute so that they are picked/held/helped. Well done
