these are teachers of the school we visited. they are all nice people. when i took this shot, they were tried to look at the camera, i told them look other way. when they were "confuse" what i was trying to do, i stopped this moment. it was at afternoon and light is not that strong, because we were inside a balcony. enjoy it!

The way all three pose, yet look in a different direction, is a bit bizarre, but this is a great group portrait, nevertheless. I particularly like the 'serious' look of the one in the front. Bless them.

I quite like the angle you've used to capture this candid moment, and there is a lot of cultural interest here particularly the "Chitrali hat" (I'm not sure what it's called in Afghanistan, but this is what it's called in the Pathan part of Pakistan) that tells you straight away where this was taken. I would, however, like to add that perhaps a black/white conversion could make it even more dramatic since the tonal range here looks pretty good. Also, a little more inclusion of the cap in the frame would make it look even more complete.

Hello Jean Paul,
Impressively, the faces of the teachers!
Probably as hard as the country.
Very good work!

great triple catch of the teachers. even though they look so old, i guess it is due to the difficult life they have been living through.
they look like of "Hazara" ethnicity. are they?
do you know how many Hazara people could survive the taliban massacres?
