Rabangla is a hill town in southern Sikkim at an altitude of about 7600 ft. The people of Sikkim (just as all the other hill people I have come across) are simple and friendly.

Hi Satya. My compliments for this beautiful and subtle black and white photo. Everything looks natural and unsophisticated. Fine nuances between black and white. The composition is masterful. The inclusion of the background is well done. Overall a great picture - I like it very much.

so interesting, the difference in the expressions of the two kids. the big sister does not look too happy, especially contrasted with the little brother's curious and almost mischievous expression. really a lovely b&w composition, it has the feel of an earlier era. nicely done.

Fine documentary portrait! The little girl is clearly not impressed by your photographic interest in her, but I'm glad you pressed on and pressed the shutter! Good work.

This is a good documentary photo given a kind of timelessness from the conversion to B&W. The children are cute but look rather shy in front of the camera. The elder one doesn't even want to look into the lens. You put them very nicely very close to the camera and captured a fairly good view of the village and scenery in the background, which gives us some idea of the environment.

I like very much how you made this quick and spontaneous portrait into a timeless study of character and relationships. The attitudes and postures of the children are very intriguing, the little boy's persistent glance is so engaging. He is braver, maybe due to his overwhelming curiosity and to his trust in his sister. The depth and the thoroughness of the environment enhance the appeal of this little story, the monochrome is clear and lovely. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,

Delightful group portrait!

A very good picture of these children. They are well positioned in the composition, along a diagonal line. The picture also shows the interesting background with a road curving towards the mountains far away.

I like your monochrome execution of the portrait. The little one is looking at your camera,very much perfectly eye to eye contact.valo chobi.

Il y a quelque chose de très attendrissant dans le regard de la jeune fille et quelque chose de très beau dans son geste protecteur pour son petit frère.Le noir et blanc donne un aspect documentaire à la photo.

wow, the look on the girls face is priceless.
She looks sad, perhaps just shy, but its a powerful facial expression.
nice to see a part of the town in the bg too.

There is something very touching in the eyes of the girl and something very beautiful in its protective gesture to his little black and white frère.Le gives a documentary look at the picture.

Hello Satya - I like the way you have filled the foreground with the children and still given space for the details behind them; it gives context to the double portrait. A good choice to present this in B&W as it gives the shot a documentary feel which I think is appropriate here. I like the curious expression of the small boy.... his sister is not nearly as fascinated by your attention!
Nicely captured moment
Warm regards Rosemary

So touching portrait from Sikkim state Sathya, the b&w version adds some rustic side to the frame and an idea of past periods, great shot! regards
