I dunno why but i could never make him smile.
He didnt want to talk to me.
The only thing he asked me was " do you have a painting book?"
I sent him 3 painting books from Istanbul.
I hope he is smiling a bit now.

Very nice portrait. I like the horizontal position allowing us to see the background. Very good focus on the eyes. Ihope he is feeling better.

this is a shot that stand on its own, as the expression of the kid is pushing the viewer to wonder at the thoughts this kid is having, they really seem so heavy for a little guy. B&W is definitely helping conveying his mood, and adds a haunting feeling to this portrait.

When a child does not want to talk, its is difficult to change it. Your note is very nice. I like the shot with the blurry background.

A very expressive and strong portrait
Good choice of b&w to emphasize his mood
I am glad you sent him painting books :o)

Oh, I hope so you made hime smile, Bahadir !
What a look you captured here, what beautiful big eyes!
I really like your framing here, having cut the top of the head, and a very nice background as well.

Bako, your shots here are so interesting. This one moves me very much. The child-perfectly sharp and perfectly exposed- is so full of pathos. The lonely, desolate background intensifies the feeling of abandonment. It is a perfect picture.

What a wonderful expression you've captured. THe light and the tones are beautiful. THe composition with the background is great.

bu fotoğrafı görür görmez tanıdım çünkü 2 yıl önce (aktif TE üyesi değilken) de görüp beğenmiştim, o boncuk gözlerden etkilenmiştim... o zaman adı sad boy'du... (neresi olduğunu da merak etmiştim hatta... 35 yıldır yaz tatillerimde kıbrısa giderim ama burayı o zaman da çıkaramamıştım yine çıkartamadım...)
bugün aynı fotoğrafı "sad" adıyla tekrar yüklemişsiniz... dalgınlık herhalde diye düşündüm, farkedince silersiniz mutlaka diye de eskisini puanlamaya karar verdim...
gerçekten çok etkileyici bir kare... elinize sağlık bahadır bey...
