I took this photo in a very nice small village near Bhuj, in the Kutch District. Largely affected by the earthquake of 2001, this area is famous for the handicrafts made by the locals. Some of them are really artwork and a good way for the locals to get some money. We have been there to see some. While walking along the little streets many people came to the door to say hello, specially children, who seemed so happy to see foreigners around.

This is wonderful Ana, kid looking in and pity the girl at the back doesn't get a clear view of your lens as you seem to be attracting their attention. The facial feature is especially captivating as this shot really makes you smile, love all his expressions. Positioning is good as well as timing, the colour is vibrant and lighting is subtle. Children are frequently able to act and smile spontenously at the most unimanigable situations as depicted. Imaginative and enjoyable shot, God loves those adorable innocent children! Great caoture, Congrats

Le visage souriant et accueillant de ce petit garçon fait plaisir à voir.

Very sweet capture. Smile of teh kid in front is heart warming. He is looking a bit shy too as he is close to the wall and hiding his small portion of body. Keeping the wall into frame is seem to be good idea. Very good composition. Thanks for sharing.

Thats a beaming smile, and your note adds to it well, as I can imagine walking these streets and seeing this smiling face appear. What a brilliant welcome for visitors that local people would come to welcome you! Excellent capture of the moment.
All the best

Que magnifico retrato has conseguido aqui de este niño, me encanta la expresion que le has captado, con esa sonrisa tan bonita y esos luminosos y despiertos ojos. Me encanta.
Buena luminosidad y nitidez.
Ten una buena tarde.

Nice smiling face of this little boy, which must like to be photographed. Good light management producing vibrant colour tones and high sharpness. Well done

Ah, the inocence of a childs smile, it is always so captivating. One can't help but smile with the little boy. It would have been nice to see more of the girl behind to but alas what can you do. Lovely viewpoint at being at eye level with the boy.
have a great day

é uma pena a presença da mulher por trás do garoto; a luz da compo e os elementos que enquadram o personagem principal são fantásticos. o olhar e o sorriso tão bonitos e natural do menino são a estrela da imagem. como mpre, um lindo retrato do povo indiano, com alma.
