Kids are such a joy to watch and to photograph. They are free of inhibitions, always willing to express themselves freely. Never a dull moment with them. This is Manebhanjan, once a tiny Himalayan hamlet, now a bustling base for treks to the Singalila National Park and Sandakphu. This is the setting for one of the most scenically rewarding treks in the entire Himalaya, with views of four of the world’s five highest mountains - Kangchenjunga, Makalu, Everest and Lhotse. These kids with their smiling faces, though offer no lesser view.

Shotti ki daroon expressions, each one seems to have a face and mood of his/her own. Tamate colour tone-tao durdanto.

Nice expressive faces Sabya, and their winterwear apart from their xpressions looks so good. Good amount of background to show what daily life must be like. I think you have workd with the colours here and the tones look good.

You have such capacity to photograph potraits that it leaves me impress. A naughty group of kids with their eyes in all directions. That is funny.

Nike hats are everywhere! Nice group portrait, a different kind of portrait from you. I would have preferred even more background action in this case.

Legal ver como as crianças reagem de maneiras distintas quando são fotografadas! Da pra perceber claramente a personalidade de cada uma delas através da sua foto!
Parabéns e Abraço!

I find this portrait bit too dark.May be 'coz of the black framing u used.Somehow this one is not as eye-soothing as your other one's.But the face of each n every person is very expressive.
ribeiroantonio (22637) 2006-09-24 23:58
Nice multitude of different facial expressions. The children look happy with the camera (maybe not all of them). Nice strong colours and good definition make this shot quite interesting.

Wonderful capture of these children. Two things I find outstanding; the young man on the left making a face and the Nike hat of the child in the front row. There seems to be something happening off to the right, but the one fellow has you dialed in. The nike hat shows the depth of western commercialism.
Well done shot,

A lovely group portrait. Kids do always make a good subject matter. I like the different expressions that you have captured and the saturated colours.

Great group portrait with different face expressions. Very good colours and light.
Very good work.
papagolf21 (86998) 2006-09-27 4:15
Je reste persuadé pour qu'un portrait de groupe soit réussi, il faut qu'il y ait complicité entre les enfants et le photographe !
Ici, vous avez su mettre à l'aise les jeunes enfants, et laisser libre cours à leur joie.
Très bien fait.
saamb (1008) 2006-09-27 16:25
This is very interesting for me that see oriental faces (mogolian eyes) in india! are all people of West Bengal such? or are in Manebhanjan only?
i like colors and the snoot boy!
