Quality stuff here! Great expressions of these chubby kids in nice festival clothes and beautiful banners' woven fabric. Accurate framing. Will I tell you that colors and sharpness are excellent? Yes I will, just because they are! ;D Some misspelling in the title?

Bonsoir, mon ami Kevin,
Je n'ai pas la chance de voyager, de découvrir le monde, ni les us et coutumes de chaque pays, mais grâce à TE, j'ai la joie de me transporter d'un continent à l'autre.
Merci, Kevin, de me permettre de découvrir à travers vos photographies ce monde inconnu.

That's really well done. Nice graphic elements paired with a nice human element. The seriousness of the boys draws your eye into the action. Perfect exposure as well.
