This is my second photo taken in a temple of the Inle Lake during the "Festival of the Five Buddhas", when the golden statues of Buddha are taken by boat from village to village - that's a big feast that takes place in the lake every year. During this period, the temples of the lake are crowded because all the locals come to spend some time there eating and praying. I didn't have much chance to see the famous fishermen of the lake, but I had the opportunity to witness this moment, by visiting several temples like this one.
These kids were staying in background, just watching, while the adults were in front praying (like I've shown in the other post).

Wonderfull capture with good pov and perfect ligth management.
I only wonder, why 85 visitors have viewed it and only one of them (now two with me) has scored ?
TFS and best regards

There's nothing quite like a child.
In one poem decijioj it says,, Flowers is a garden ornament, garden ornament the world
a child full of imagination children are beautiful decoration of the world''really nice song goes along with your photo.

Excellent quality and an interesting note. The two older children appear to be rather unaware of, or at least unconcerned with, the camera. The little one in the middle obviously has noticed something rather less serious or more pleasant than what the other two are watching. Maybe the photographer. A pleasanrt image to view.

3 faces with different expressions ....I like the 2 children's hands that touch as to give confidence, or affection..
very fine shot

Excellent triple portrait with the differents attitudes and especially expression of the three young boys very well collected. POV well selected with a very interesting FG.

A really fine photo of these three boys. All with different expression on their faces. I really like your perspective. The diagonal lines add dynamics to the scene. Perfect clarity and very good and natural colours. An excellent photo job. TFS and have a nice evening!

Olá, amiga Ana,
captaste esta escena con toda su naturalidad, es muy espontánea, y eso se nota en las diferentes expresiones en los rostros de los tres niños, cada uno mirando hacia un lado.
El que está en el centro parece muy feliz de salir en tu foto, y por lo que veo al fondo de la imagen, parece que las mujeres no pueden estar con los hombres mientras ellos rezan.
Es un trabajo muy bonito y muy interesante, que nos muestra las tradiciones del país.
Pili e Josep

in exotic countries you pay attention to the people. In Portugal you offer the situations in the cities and landscapes. In my case I make the photos with the peoples and I make the toils on canvas only landscapes and urban motifs. Amazing, isn't it?
Anyway I like your crop of the subject and the precise definition. It is nice witness, friend!
ikeharel (58929) 2011-12-13 7:44
Kids face's say it all...happy looks on! always a nice subject to photo.
Fine image show details on floor and in perfect contrast to BG in dark.

Lovely shot of these boys, it is such a nice scene. What do they possibly think? Good light management, pleasing pastel colour hues and high sharpness. Well done.
Seasonal greetings - have a great time in 2012
