Back to Kanchanaburi...
It was fun spending sometime with the children there. Once again, I became a child. I could se myself shuffling from one end of the field to another. I could also hear myself chuckling while I was taking pictures of them. I believe that to successfully tae good portraits of kids, we should be one of them too.

Hello Manuel, Very lovely and spontaneous shot, full of life and energy, and the tonality throughout is that of a master no doubt

Hi Manuel, you have captured some wonderful expressions here. I can really feel the joy in these boys' faces. Great lighting and the de-saturisation works well.

Magnifique composition !
Quel festival de sourires !
Une superbe image, j’adore cette désaturation !
Ca renforce le côté humain de la composition !
Notre regard se porte sur les visages, les expressions et non sur des couleurs artificielles !
Une très grande image !
Merci pour le partage

Another great shot. This somehow reminds me of the very short-lived time when I played rugby for my school... or rather, the moment after we thrashed the opposing side!
Really interesting PP here which I think adds to the overall effect.
Thanks for your kind comments on my Childhood photo, much appreciated :)

Well said, manny, so did you jump in the canal too, then? :-)))
You had them really excited, we can feel you are in your element, with these children, like you have shown us in so many of your shots.

Wow Manny, all these hands looking for individual attention are superb! Really a great cheerful action shot, full of different expressions on the faces. And a nice crowded framing of the boys!
dsidwell (9783) 2005-10-01 23:24
This photo is so full of joy and energy, Manny. It's simply amazing! As remarkable as the moment captured are the deep tones present. Really great work!

An uplifting group portrait of this cheerful bunch, Manny. Great range of expressions and emotions shown in a single frame, and good tonal range. Very nice.

This is a great great piece of Life, Manuel :) An instant favourite for me..those smiles, the joy in their eyes, the inocence..you got in a frame the things Life and childhood are all about. Marvelous, as always.

Hi Manuel L
It is a very impressive portrait shot. Wonderful composition. Thanks for sharing

Fantastic crowd, Manuel!

Waow, the movement and the esxpressions are really great !
kevinos (7517) 2005-10-02 15:12
Your work lately has become just awe-inspiring Manny. This is another amazing group portrait. For the composition point of view, it is interesting how the outstretched arms of the boy divide the frame into two halves diagonally. The top half is relatively active, with massed faces and the lower half calmer, with just that one wicked little grin I think this gives the composition structure.
ChrisJ (117201) 2005-10-03 3:44
Good use of repetition, & nice to see some smiling faces. The sepia tone is superb. Well done!
jasmis (58447) 2005-10-04 12:24

AmiBe (6042) 2005-10-04 15:42
