At Wadopana, a traditional intertribal pow wow, even the kids dance. This little guy seemed facinated with the camera as he passed by.

Well done fill in flash. Nice shot of the little guy. Only remark is that the photo should have been taken some more 'to the left'; the boy would come out some better when he's at the right of the photo.

Great candid! The headdress texture is well-revealed, and the little guy's expression of guarded amusement is pretty sharp! This would have had a green from me.

Very nice. Excellent expression and your lighting with the flash is great. Very nice, nothing I can really think of to add.

I was just about to say the same! well controlled flash shot, rich colours and an interesting subject, his head-dress makes for a tough call when it comes to composition, leave it intact, or crop away the black area and lose some of it? personally I'd crop, it would make for a more dynamic image.

Wonderful shot - nice color and sharpness and what a wonderful little "warrior" with great expression. Won my heart immediately. Crop or not to crop, personally I would crop to the right and would even clone the rest of what seems to be a belt.

What colours. What a capture. Nothing more I can add here that has not already been said. Did you use the RAW format for this?

Between his expression, the colors, and the clarity I keep getting drawn back to this image. I disagree with the critique about cropping the right side out, I think the reddish feathers (tail feathers?) are better served by a bit of the black padding space on the right.

Excellent photo! The exposure appears perfect with the fill flash.

Superbe photo. J'aime beaucoup le regard de l'enfant. Très belles couleurs.

He does seemed fascinated with the camera. He ought to see what you have got.
Eye levelled with the little guy and everything sharp focused.
What I like Ned, was the way you lead the little guy into your frame, to get that "Trojan" head dress curving into his back, therefore inadvertently, framing the little guy's sidelooking.
Don't get me started on the colors !

What a cute composition !
As well as the DOF and colours saturation.
Take a look the theme 7Children of the World where I will put your work on it.
