A nice portrait of daily life, it is great that you have captured the movement of the boys hands shining the shoes, a good composition. A very expressive photo, I am making it one of my favourites. What are lakhs?

Hi Kunal,a wonderfully captured street portrait. The composition shows his environment perfectly and a nice touch to show the toe of the shoe peeping into the right of the frame. Good exposure too, to show the blur as he brushes the shoe he is cleaning. Perhaps it could be benefit from a little more contrast to separate the greys a more and I'd be tempted to sharpen the boy's face a little in CS to emphasise it, but a very nice photo. Well done.

This photography seems to me very eloquent. The POV is very good, so low as that of the child, which describes well his " social position " (not his dignity), the hands in movement, working, and the eyes (ah! the eyes!) ... I do not know very well what to say, concentrated, inquisitive ... what I know is that they thrill me. Thank you very much for this photography, Kunal. Congratulations.
PS. What must we do so that the day at which the children do not have to wok comes soon?
