Excellent sharpness with good graphism & nice contrasted lighting although the highlights are a little oe. Good depiction of the Haitian flag and these charming school children. The tight framing works well here. Tfs!

Apparently the area was spared by the earthquake and it became a refuge for homeless people... An interesting slice of daily life, with patriotism involved!

Interesting note introduces us to understand the meaning of the image.
Lovely composition with the group of children at the time of the offering of the flag, which adds a nice touch of color, a scene of everyday life with a strong vitality.
Great management of light and sharpness.
Well done. I love it.
Have a nice day.

Nice shot at the routine singing of the national anthem every morning by schoolkids in Haiti. I like their casual school uniform.

a very good capture of the scene and the morning atmosphere in the school yard. I like the depth of the picture, the balance between the lit and shady parts and the interaction the pupils had with you while performing their morning ritual. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,

One has to wonder, with old photos of Haiti before the earthquake, how much of what you see remains standing today. This is a nice shot in somewhat happier times, with strong color and a nice repetition of the flag. Thanks!

A good daily scene, from a country we don't see much here!
Good old one, well framed and with nice colours!
