...is a song
composed by Andrew Lloyd Webber for the musical Evita in 1978, the singer was Sarah Brightman, later there was a film where the singer was Madonna
When I saw these boys riding bikes in the fields I waved them showing my camera, meaning I wanted some photos with them, part of the bike is seen on the right
They quickly stop with a wide smile and stay some minutes for me to take this photo
But the little one cried all the time, afraid of me or and my camera, that’s way the song comes to my mind then and now
Crop so high
Because there was my shadow covering the low part of the capture

Acabo de retomar mi actividad en TE, despues de dos semanas de viaje por Cordoba, La Adrada y Barcelona, donde he disfrutado de la compañia de Josepmarin y Pili, anfitriones maravillosos.
Un encantador retrato de estos pequeños, sus expresiones nos transmiten la inocencia y naturalidad en sus semblantes, magnifica la perspectiva con esas verdes praderas y la montaña al fondo.
Magnífica la buena nitidez y la iluminacion, que dan una imagen muy potente con esta vivacidad de colores.
Un gran trabajo.
Disfruta de un buen fin de semana.
Saludos muy cordiales.

Autant dire que j'aime celui-ci !
Bon WE, amicalement

These adorable fellas, descendants of Genhis Khan don't cry that easily!
What a moment you captured, very natural which I feel is enhanced by the light of a beautiful glow on their faces and the central fig -the main star- in particular. So full of warmthness and the total concentration that only children can convey so naturally, the pure innocence enjoying the simple pleasure in front of your lens and a truely wonderful thing to do. Not all photos have to be arty or masterpieces, showing a side of real life will be treasured forever can be much more rewarding. Such a creative use of an everyday object to express an emotion. I love the title, the song and Evita. This is wonderful, Bravo!!

You're capturing well this portrait by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see these innocent boys with pure mind under the Mongolian's prairie of backdrop. It's impressive in two boys with smile and a kids which is likely to cry in the middle. You catch well the young child's psychology. And, here is surrounded by the rich and beautiful nature.

bellissimo ritratto, sembrano felici di farsi fotografare, il piccolo un pò meno, ma se ne stanno belli e buoni i attesa dello scatto, non è semplice.
PS Monteriggioni è un'antico villaggio fortificato, che mantiene ancora intatta la struttura medievale e si trova a 20 km da Siena

I love this vivid and direct portrait of the three children. It's wonderful to see their closeness as a group and each one's individual way of dealing with the lens and the attention of a stranger. There's exquisite sharpness on the three children and marvellous sense of depth. The soft warm light vivifies the natural tones superbly. The sense of vastness behind them is amazing and the only points of reference are the bike, the path and the fenced lot in the distance. You've created a strong connection between you and the children passing it on to the viewer as well. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely Sunday,

Beautiful photo of the kids. great color and I love the background of wide open field, showing us the location of these kids home and environment. Teh little one seem shy and almost not sure if he is crying or smiling. He also look like a mix between Mongolian and perhaps Russian? Very cute shot. I love it.

Your skill with portraits is a joy to behold, again. Have created a very special scene here with these children. Te backdrop behind them is awe inspiring and I think the tears of the smallest actually suits the whole picture really well, making it have a great gritty sense of realism.

Holà Maria, this is a very authentic portrait of that group of children from Mongolian steppes, they look glad to pose for you, the light is excellent, high definition, the landscape behind them is lovely
A brillant picture, all the best
