Another picture of the aetas...this time, focusing on their human side: their need to love and be loved. Taken in Boracay last April, this picture is one of my favorites for no apparent reason (technically, I think my other shots are better). Anyway, I will also use this in my presentation and and this one has been cropped to fit the theme "marginalized". Any comment and workshop to improve this picture will be greatly appreciated. I am learning a lot from TE.
(Auto level, contrast, color and cropping. I also adjusted down the saturation and apply lighting filter)

your pictures with people are really good, looking at the gallery it is easy to say which picture is yours... the framing is very good - you cropped it well, the subject is interesting too - the expression of the woman is special, very good picture

Another great candid. Terrific expressions, although rather sad. Background is well handled. The frame is just the right weight. Faces could be a bit sharper, especially the woman's eyes.

It is very interesting how you cropped this picture... even cuted her forehead... you focused on the misery of this person... exelent example of daily life photography... i would like to take pictures like this one

A more emotional picture than the previous, but esthetically less appealing to my eyes. Still a very good job.

Forget about the technical aspect. Carefree of the sleeping newborn and distress in mother's eyes... That's what's make this shot very interesting to me.
