A country town in Argentina I saw these dear children doing very little no toys to be seen.
These three kiddies were given permission by their mums for me to take their photo - providing I gave them a few peso's - It was such a hot day & I felt sorry for them with so much clothing on.
For what was clearly a very poor town I thought the children were reasonably well dressed though [ good sneakers ].
The little boy is so cute isn't he.

A charming capture of these three children who seem slightly suspicious and perhaps overwhelmed by the prospect of having their picture taken. Very good technical realisation.

looking at you with an astonishing face's, Dawn, innocent as kids are always.
all kids are precious, and their mom is caring for them - that'as obvious.
Fine taken the moment, superb.

la foto è molto bella, anche se i bambini non sembrano così contenti di essere fotografati.
Spero sia stato solo quel momento e che il sorriso sia tornato presto sui loro volti.

These are cute kids, as most children are, but hey don't look as happy as even poor children usually do. They are probably just shy of the strange person with a camera. The light is good and he colours are fine and at least they look a bit better off than "my" Afghan children you commented on earlier.
Kind regards, and a Marry Christmas,

kids will be kids, judging by their dusty clothes they'd been engaged in some bustling activity before you took that picture of them. I just can't decide if they're not happy being photographed or trying to look cool:)
Anyway it's a beautiful and touching picture.
Thanks and best holiday wishes to you and Gus

Really nice portrait, made even more so for their expressions. As mentioned, the look on their faces is of slight mistrust, slight awe, and inquisitiveness. Great expressions.
Thanks for sharing, and happy Christmas!

Hola dear Dawn
Oh yes they are cute indeed and the little guy is adorable. I love this group of kids and am so glad you chose to keep it in colour rather than convert it to B&W. Their faces are a little sad, let's hope that thir lives become easier.
Happy travels dear friend and I wish you and Gus a beautiful Christmas. May your 2013 be happy, healthy and full of travel and fun

Happy new year Dawn,
You have composed this shot so lovingly as enhance the beauty of these gorgeous children. I think you did a beautiful job.
s_lush (16134) 2013-01-01 21:44
I like this group portrait very much. Through it, you have reproduced the atmosphere of this Argentinian town, its distinctive economic and cultural features. A very good idea realized by you perfectly well!
ACL1978 (7511) 2013-01-02 16:35
A very nice recording of these three, clearly not as comfortable with a camera as many children might be but still quite interested. You give us a real sense of their lives with a clear shot of their clothing and surroundings as well.

It is very sad that even in the 21st century there are so many poor people in the world especially children. I can relate to those kids having grown up poor in the Philippines. Nicely captured with good lighting and dof with nice details. Well done, tfs.
mirosu (15126) 2013-01-07 5:25
A very nice photo. Smart choice of vertical frame to accentuate the childred in full size with good sharpness. Very nice with great color contrast, excellent light and very good POV choice. Excellent result.
ourania (35009) 2013-01-07 11:55
the three pairs of eyes are glued on the lens intensly and somewhat suspiciously, the three little children are apparently not used to seeing strangers or being the centre of attention. It's so interesting to see the way they are dealing with the challenge, clinging on the wall and sticking together. They are really cute and lovely and they should have more chances for a better life. Their portrait is great and has superb lighting and sharpness. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely day,
