This is my very first posting in Trekearth and I am hoping to enjoy my stay here.
That must have been his very first geometry box.
He was completely engrossed with box and looking over the same again and again for a very long time.
This photo was taken in a small village called Dhalapatti in Dharmapuri district of Tamil Nadu.

Welcome to TE Karthikeyan. It's a shame you've degraded this very nice image for you first posting, but I still think that the compo is strong enough to carry it.
Worth using a proper image editor. If you can't find a cheap versio of photoshop, PS elements (which comes free with practically every DSC I've seen, gets you a long way, and has the very effective reduction alogrithm if you 'save for the web'.

Welcome to TE Karthikeyan! Excellent strong composition on this one and a very appealing subject well seen and photographed.

Hello! Welcome here! Your photograph is funny. Contrast between the curves of the child and the projecting lines of the staircase is well representé. It is a pity, it is a little fuzzy. With the pleasure of re-examining you on this site! Raphsax

Welcome Karthikeyan, I congratulate you by this your first photo in Trekearth, is simple but it has elements that I like.
The geometry of the stairs in diagonal, the light and mainly the human element "the boy", who gives to the composition an interesting point him of interest.
A Hug from Spain..... Paco

This is still a very strong peaceful scene, the eyepuller is the compo with the diagonal of the stair and then that boy sitting there, unaware, busy with his tiny things, still a good first opening shot, missing a bit sharpness minor to the strenght of this shot.

I've just discoverd your pictures on TE.
This one is my favorite, the composition is great. The little boy seems so concentrated on what he is doing...

I wanted to say welcome to TE to you than I saw you are here longer than I am....anyway...nice to meet you and your photos!
I'm not very fixed on sharpnes , since I wear glasses and nothing in the world is so sharp to me, as some insist it must be.
I like the composition and the mood coming out of this picture!
I wonder how would it look like if the boy were positioned in the upper left part of the photo, with stears leading down?
