NIce shot of Earth Quake effectees, it seems that they have forgotten what happened..

Not sure they have forgotten, pretty sure this event with be with them forever...for that matter they will probably go throguh another such happening given the region...but, children are children and they will play. It's a shame us crummy adults lose most of this type of self-repair in later life. One stopped me in this shot is the movement that seems to be happening all around, yet the young girl looks directly into the camera. A young look indeed; a little shy but more curious.

Well, there is an awful lot of stuff going on in this image... I do like the colors in the back, and the kids, but it is difficult to focus on something. Cropping the two people partially included on the very left would already be better. That would also bring the girl a bit closer and that might work well for the image.

I like this sport's image better than the previous one, although not without reservation.
Complex composition that works very well, infact it makes me feel like I am part of being there, I can imagine walking around would cause exactly the same reaction, one curious girl, but the rest of the life goes one just like nothing happened, perhaps foreigners with or without cameras are frequent visitiors, and only the most curiours care anymore.
Complexity is the strenght, soccer, cricket, one girl going to get water, a subtle peek into the tents in the background, this is a very telling image. Strong colours, wish the light wasn't as harsh, but you have done great given how harsh it is. Ahile Roly says that it's difficult to focus or anything, my personal impression is quite different, and each time I look at this image the girl staring at me simply demands the focus, she is great, she is the focus of the image and anchors it wonderfully.
Another minor nitpick is the overlapping soccer ball/post/children.

what peter said :-).. except his nitpickings (if i'd have to do the same i'd wish we could see a few extra pixels on the left) also looks a bit too heavy on the magenta in the clay, but maybe just my monitor... weird how all the kids seem to be on their own...

Yes! Very nice compo once again, Maciej, anchred by that little girl's beautiful smile, looking right at you. Your timing is ace, man, really organizing the chaos.

If it wasn't for the earthquake bit, I'd say that this place looks like great fun for the kids! Bright colored tents, footballs, cricket bats and stuff...
I like the energy in this photo with all the kids playing around, the colors, the zigzags etc...
It's nice to have this little girl satring at you.
I looks a tad underexposed on my screen, but it brings out the colors I suppose.
