I took it at Pahelgaon, Jammu and Kashmir. It is also scanned from a photo taken with my old kodak KB 12 ( not a digital one ).
The children were begging. They are local children. It was so much contrasting with the atmosphere, that the poor people leave there who are suffering for collect their food but don't loose their smile. You can see it here . This atmosphere haunted me that time and now I am sharing it with you. Hope you like it.

Fantastic daily life scene and great multiple portrait. I like their expressions, and they look very natural. The view in the background is also impressive. Well done!
Thanks for sharing,

the scanning work was successful. I cannot recognize this as film photo...but let's talk about the composition. It's a lovely family portrait although there is a sad context on it. Colors and quite natural and the details are really good, specially on the children. Well done!

What a lovely scan! I like it especially how the kids are looking at the camera. It's a very nice intimate scene, most probably early morning. Fine sharpness and adequate vivid colors, well done

a nice snapshot of the daily life of these beggar children of Pahelgaon,that looks so curious in front of your lens.I wonder from who they ask for money.

Is there anything sadder than starving children? They do not feel like smiling. While there are people so in need and other living squandering wealth, our world will not find the peace that aims. Great capture!
Have a nice day

Greetings from Warszawa!

Une image prise avec un appareil argentique qui n'a rien perdu de sa force sur le lecteur.
Comme vous le soulignez, les enfants gardent malgré tout le sourire.
Très bonne numérisation.
josepmarin (57791) 2009-10-30 3:46
The scanned one of this analogical photo has given a good result and has preserved a correct quality of image.
I like this scene in which the children pose for the photographer, with his clean looks and his innocence. In spite of their life in a poor place, they continue smiling, and it is fantastic, makes us think over the citizens of richest countries.
ymrk (14955) 2009-10-30 4:27

an interesting presentation of family. Fine poses of childrens. Good shot.
Amaz (11475) 2009-10-31 2:08
Very intersting shot, Subhendu!!
The guys are very curious, indeed!!
Unfortunately Jammu and Kashmir is an area with not only economics problems, I think.
Thank you very much for sharing.
With the best personal regards,
mauro61 (52623) 2009-10-31 2:11
bella foto di insieme ben composta con gli sguardi incuriositi dei bambini.
Natura e poverta' che purtroppo traspare da questo scatto.
jlbrthnn (76037) 2009-10-31 2:33
The digitized photograph is of excellent quality. Your note makes it possible to understand this image. Framing is well made and balanced. I like this environment of simple life, and the glances and smiles of these carefree children and I hope for it, happy.
Have a nice day.
ChrisJ (97854) 2009-10-31 2:37
A good daily life scene, & charming group portrait, of these inquisitive kids. Reasonable sharpness, good colour, & excellent framing. I would add a little yellow to the fg. The snowcapped peaks make a fine backdrop. Tfs!
Silvio1953 (122129) 2009-10-31 12:48
Ciao Subhendu, lovely group composition with cute models, great quality for a scan, wonderful colors, very well done, have a good week end, ciao Silvio
delpeoples (53009) 2009-10-31 14:37
Hi Subhendu, what lovely children, the looks on every one of their faces is unique and I can see why they haunt you as they are now haunting me. Your photo tells such a sad but important story - just what TE is all about. I like the sharpness of the children and the FG although would probably have cropped out the BG where it has been over-exposed. Nice work, it's lovely to see you on TE. Have a good weekend, Lisa.
wolf38 (31278) 2009-10-31 23:57
Hello Subhendu. A beautiful and worth seeing photo. It shows a small group of children and their interest in the stranger (photographer). Your informative text is helpful because it describes the living conditions of people. Overall, a good shot. Best regards, Wolfgang.
Angshu (55665) 2009-11-02 0:40
Nice image Subhendu and good quality of the scan. IMHO, you could have cropped the sky at the to, which is washed out, make the picture into a square format, to bring these children closer and bigger. Nice group portrait with nice colours

very nice presentation of this small group of brothers and sisters. The way they are posing for you is quite natural and pleasant although there is a certain touch of mistrust visible. TFS!
