Remember the kid of yesterday, on the cosy backyard?
I decided to upload a closer approach.
Now you can see how pissed off he was. We all have bad days. I guess that this kid was having his - He really was in a bad mood and I don't think it was because I was pointing the camera at him.

It probably didn't help either, but still, It is well done. I don't blame him for being unhappy with his situation.
You captured the mood here, Well done!

superb photo. i've always believed that any photo should aim at fulfilling one of the two (preferably both) functions - documentation and communication, capturing a moment, an emotion, and envoking an emotion. this photo does it all - the "dont you push me, man, i might not like it" feeling is almost palpable :)
i also like the not-exactly child-eye level, but close. it sort of makes you feel that you understand what the kid is so pissed off about, but you also know that it's something he will not remember in a month or so. as i said, great photo :)

A fotografia tem um conteúdo bastante forte. A fisionomia da criança tem bastante significado.

In your previous post, I could not see clearly the kid was upset...but now...yes she is, and I feel she was already in that state already before seeing you. You caught very well her expression and the little one is well positioned in your photo. Light is nice too.
Have a nice day

interesting portrait, child without the smile, really life, good note. Good composition and colours. Well done.
carper (96) 2007-03-25 3:36
wauw she is indeed not smiling Ricardo,
but has such a child a reason to smile when there comes a man with a big camera who want to make a photo of her. I don't know. By the way it's a very good portrait and a good photo job here.
pablominto (53744) 2007-03-25 3:38
A pleasant composition, and you capture his grumpy mood very well!
But next he will smile for sure...
Good lines in the composition, excellent colours & details!

wow whet a girl. Don't mess around with me, sunny.
Great portrait. I like the intens black of her hair and eyes, the flies on her legs and of course her expresion.
cepekdong (3676) 2007-03-25 6:53
wow the baby is so dirty and there are so many flies on it ! to take pictures its nice buat to live this life rather not i think
feather (51130) 2007-03-25 8:12
S/he certainly doesn't look too happy. You have captured a wonderful petulant look on her/his face. I like the way you composed it with the child on the left and pointing towards the space remaining on the right. I suppose when you're enjoying a good sulk the last thing you want is some stranger paying you attention. Good shot.

What makes the point here is the attitude, a real killer looks like Luan when somebody steals his rice ;-)
hem... he or she btw ???
Have anice evening;
teutza (10590) 2007-03-25 13:17
this face is so expresive..
the image is great..but the thing that it shows..is..hard to watch...
coco (30437) 2007-03-25 15:41
I think that I would prefer a wider view, as a landscape. Then we would see much better how is the place where is this boy.
Anyway, a nice work.

un portrait magnifique ou le regard du gamin en dit long sur le fait que tu le prennes en photo, belle expression et netteté
UnTrained (0) 2007-03-26 1:05
have you thought of the risk he (or she) will see it later when grown up? Won't be pleased I think. :(
Yes, it is a true capture of a "pissed of" view. How long where you able to resist this view?
Lieben Gruss, Ulf
Paolo (41222) 2007-03-27 5:10
What a sad and terrifiant view Ricardo...a real kick on the head, thinking to our children ful of game, joy, food, cartoons...
the picture is technically beautiful and with good composition and quality, and amazing colours, but the subject, what there's on is really so sad...
josepmarin (57517) 2007-03-28 11:23
la cara de enfado que tiene este niño es realmente impresionante, quizá está enfadado porque le disparas tu foto y defiende su intimidad, o es que ya estaba enfadado antes.
Lo has captado con maestría, su mirada seria y el gesto con sus ojos y su boca denotan que no era su mejor día, y su presencia llena toda la imagen con gran interés.
Excelente captura, con mucha calidad de imagen, y muy espontánea.
alejandroguzman (4684) 2007-03-28 14:12
Wonderful shot of this kid !
It's amazing how you got all these expressions on this little !
manatee (4658) 2007-03-28 14:24
Ola amigo, como estas?
Interesting picture and note I can understand why he is angry, he is lonely maybe hungry and with flys around his body, i will be angry too.
However this picture in so clear, the hair over his eyes give it more dramatism to this picture ans I like the soft shadow.
As usual nice picture.
I can see you have a new picture you looks so diferent than in the older I can not recognized you, but you looks nice in this too.
I will do it the same my hair is not long anymore so I need to change my pic.

Uma expressao fantastica, zangada ?!...
Um excelente registo com boas cores e uma nota muito boa.
Um abraço Amigo
Emile (20350) 2007-03-31 1:33
He really looks pissed off as we can see on his expression, he is mad, but the shot is very good and you got a very good composition. Interesting to see that he is used to have flies around him, he doesn't bother about it. Great colors and sharpness.
Very well done.
bibiweb (8) 2007-04-01 3:25
I really like this grouchy little guy! Perhaps he was upset about something else, but I think that your pointing the camera at him obviously didn't make things any better! :o)
The large framing also gives us an idea of the environment this kid lives in. A funny portrait!
Have a nice Sunday.
robob (3646) 2007-04-01 12:21
Les enfants ont toujours des expressions uniques… Excellent portrait de cette petite fille !
Bien à toi,
Angshu (54763) 2007-04-02 0:46
This is an excellent prtrait of the grumpy young solul. You've framed her well, with the light comoing in from the left highlighting her cheeks..She's not too happy when you took her picture either! I like this...very well done my friend
michalu (810) 2007-04-02 13:43
hi great idea to show how it is in an outher part of world where the people has not so much to laugh.
xuaxo (6846) 2007-04-13 7:45
Ora cá está o puto!
O retrato está muito giro. Se ele se estivesse a rir se calhar nem era tão interessante.
Mas, para dizer a verdade, o que me saltou mais à vista primeiro foi a pobreza envolvente, nomeadamente as emblemáticas moscas e a sujidade no chão. Enfim, é o mundo que temos. Mas depois disso, a minha apreciação da imagem foi alegrada pelo retrato propriamente dito da criança. Foi muito bem apanhado.
jmdias (52728) 2009-02-27 7:35
muito mau humorado e ainda assim muito bonito de se ver. não há como não sorrir ao ver esta foto. achei o retrato muito bem feito, linda a luz e bem significativo o ambiente ao redor, perfeito enquadramento e pov, um dos seus melhores retratos
