Nice framing and tight composition make this an effective as well as charming portrait. The eye contact is a vital part of the effect of the photograph.

un doppio ritratto ambientato, molto bello il momento e i due soggetti sono splendidi.
Ottima qualità, gli sguardi sono una forte attrattiva.

well composed with two kids nicely placed in opposite corners of the picture. I like the natural look as well as colors. Good light and sharpness.
All the best

I love the simplicity of this shot, and it comes with a familial and personal touch. Just a couple of young kids going about their every day activities, but with a watchful eye to the photographer. :) A very nice composition, I like how you've placed them on an angle, cutting diagonal to the framing, and their separation helps fill space on both ends. A beautiful moment captured. Plain and simple, just the way it should be. Great shot! Enjoy the new day.

Dobar snimak, lepo pokazana deca.
Dobar rad, lepo pokazano mesto sa decom i trenutak, lepe boje.
Tezak je zivot dece, moraju da rade.
Deca su nase najvece bogatstvo i buducnost.
Good shot, nice children shown.
Good work, nice place shown with the children and the moment, pretty colors.
It's a tough life for children, they have to work.
Children are our most valuable asset and the future.

hello Farhat, cute children working and playing in water. Charming composition.
Warm regrads Malgo

as Will already mentioned, the eye contact is vital here, it makes a strong impact...even an emotional one.
young children of this age shouldn't be washing laundry in the local river :(
they should be out playing :)
but this is the life in many parts of the world.

A charming capture of these two young people. Very well framed, allowing for an interesting juxtaposition between the two protagonists. Also, the light and pleasant harmonious tones.

A nice photo of the two children surprised by your present and forgetting for a moment about their work and play. I like their attentive looks and the yellowish tones of the sand and the water. A nice snapshot from rural Bengal.

it is so far your best composition here, my personal thinking. Light is coming from the back, which can be generate harsh result, but you done very well with it. Nice to see these kids in some different moods. A bit tight in front of the girl. But, I can say this frame great. Marvellous work. Keep posting more like this.

You definitely have a good eye for these daily life shots. This is a fantastic DL shot of these 2 little beauties. I am sad to see this little girl has to wash clothes at such a young age. Both have very cute expressions and you have captured it very well. Thanks for sharing.
PS - My best wishes for your upcoming trip. Hope to see some good photos from you. If possible plan to make it in the first half of April, you will get snow as well as tulips in Srinagar.

C'est dans ce genre de circonstance que l'on constate à quel peut on peut être bien chez nous. Faire son lavage dans ces eaux à quelque chose de touchant.Ton point de vue est excellent.

Composition-wise, this is the perfect picture: An imaginary diagonal bonds brotherhood for a touching down-to-earth scenery!

You had beautifully drawn the attention of the two kids on the watefront, Farhat.
The girl face expression show joy knows she is on camera, but the boy a bit suspicious...
Nice taken the moment.
Enjoy your weekend,

A beautiful daily life shot again. Very good composition and great management of light coming from back of the subjects. Nice colors an clarity. Looks like you shot it standing in ankle-deep water.
Very good one.

You're capturing well this daily life by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the familiar spectacle with a good touch. They are gazing at you by the gentle look. It's also effective for kids's diagonal line position and gentle light.
mesutilgim (80202) 2014-01-10 22:21

a good snapshot from the daily life of this village of the rural Bengal,with the girl to wash the clothes standing on the rock and her brother to play on the sandy bank.
I like this original and real event as the excellent presentation of the snapshot.

After a number of street scenes. This photo showing a rural scene is refreshing. I love the composition with the children positioned along a diagonal line. TFS and have a nice day!

Fine candid laundry scene of ancient traditional process, with the young laundress at work and brother nearby with the river dominating.
ourania (26652) 2014-01-11 7:50
I like very much how you captured and framed this scene, giving intensity and dynamism to your delightful simple composition. the children are placed diagonally in the frame and express the same feelings of surprise and curiosity. Their steady gazes are captivating. I like how they are separated by a fine diagonal that crosses the frame in the opposite direction as well as how they stand out in the luminous and mildly coloured backdrop. The lighting was challenging but the impact of their glances says you managed it effectively. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely weekend,
marina7 (8049) 2014-01-11 12:01
nice candid shot from the kid's daily life. The sandy background suits well here.
eldancer1 (25300) 2014-01-12 7:59
This how people used to wash clothes in the family farm in the Philippines. Awesome reminder of my youth. Good lighting and nice details. Well done, tfs.
Cricri (101629) 2014-01-12 8:26
Tout beau regard des enfants vers vous, il semble hypnotiser par la caméra, c'est une très belle image, bien cadrer et présenter dans une très belle lumière
mkamionka (29259) 2014-01-12 8:32
lovely reportage photo. It is quite sad that little children have to work already. It makes me to appreciate better the conditions I live in...
Nice capture with the children staring straight into you, very well done,
adramad (35481) 2014-01-14 9:19
Very pretty and charming scene with these two children, while the girl seems to wash in the river, children playing in the sand.
Have a nice day.
josepmarin (57519) 2014-01-14 12:32
a good daily-life scene here, where we can see both children in a very spontaneous attitude, specially the sister washing clothes on the small rock in the river. Their innocent and nice look gives us a very beautiful and pleasant image.
Waylim (25086) 2014-01-15 8:49
A very compelling rural daily life iamge. of the kids, already at this age, responsible for taking care of the younger brother and helping parents with house chores. I hope they also go to school.
mirosu (12604) 2014-01-22 19:27
Superb snapshot from excellent high angle viewpoint. You have captured both children in excellent pose, the diagonal arrangement is also very good.
COSTANTINO (51471) 2014-02-24 22:39
