I knew this family in a stroll that I made to the central market of Fortaleza.
This was a family who was travelling for the capital, and in, they had 4 generations, of the grandmothers to the greats-grandson, passing for parents, brothers, mothers...
A funny moment that I caught of this pertaining to the state of Ceará family...

Good group portrait, and good choice of B&W, maybe could do with a little more contrast.

An image as I like, showing us real life with emotion.
The panoramic format is well seen here and it's well contrasted on my screen.

great range of expressions and poses. i like the cropping choice and the b&w. agree with the need for more contrast.

Nice shot. The panoramic crop works very well and you have captures some nice expressions. I think the guy in the centre looking directly at the camera gives the shot impact.
A touch more contrast needed on my monitor.

Une photo très bien faite Joao, un panoramique d'une famille composée de plusieurs générations.
Si seulement, cette famille pouvait se voir sur TE, quel bonheur !
Bien vu, une photo souvenir, une photo album !

All persons give a strong face expression, the 4 generations together is rare, Joao, but your photo is very nice. Good work here.

The crop is good and so is the choice of BW. I wish you would get a little closer to them though. A little more details on their faces would add more character to this shot IMHO.

Ha, great portrait Joao - so simple yet with such a strong impact in B&W! The child in motion adds fine feeling of life. Very well done!

Yes a fun and sympathetic group portrait, Joao, in which the folks appear to be very casual-looking. Interesting posing and well presented in b&w.

Very well captured Joao - I like all those different poses - surely not a "prepared" family-photo - I will check my archive for a similar shot to post :-) Thanks for the inspiration and the view.

THis is the best family shot that I ever saw, Joao. The way they pose for you is so different and so special. A very very good composition, excellent.

Great shot. I like the wide angle chosen. An impressive street shot. Nice choice to have it in BW.

A good tonal range in this panoramic b&w family composite.

Good group portrait photo, if you had been a little closer we could have seen their exporession more, but B&W works well here.
