San Pedro de Atacama has a market located at the center of the village where local people sell very good woven clothing, carpets, and crafts, besides someone told me that the building itself was interesting to visit, it had stone and abode walls and was covered by canes
Just at the entrance I saw the couple of children, he was completing a puzzle while the girl watched attentively, the moment I did click, there was a big noise outside, and the boy looked out and the girl discover me
The following moment they have gone

This is a charming picture, very much enjoyed the way you moved down close to their eye level to capture these gorgeous children, a great encounter from rare part of the world. Timing is great showing the range of emotions in the faces of these adorable innocent enjoying each other's company and the unforced natural smiles, the intensity and yet calm appraising look draw the eyes in and their attires provide such glorious colors. Truly a very heart warming and engaging image, a tender moment you have caught it so beautifully. Indeed a wonderful cheery shot and you certainly know the situation best how make those children happy and their great smiles but the eyes have it. Congrats

Glad you were able to capture this when you did, it has made for a lovely and intimate image. I have both a little niece and nephew, so this was an instant attraction. :) I think it's great that you have virtually two different expressions...one looking away in curiosity and the other directly at the camera. Adorable children, and this lower point of view really brings us closer to the "action" and feels very welcoming. As Abmdsudi mentioned before me, it's very engaging, feels very much to put us on the spot with these two. :) A great observation and quick response to capture this candid moment. Have a great day ahead.

Hi Maria. Looks like they were completing a jig-saw-puzzle. Lovely children- much loved by their parents if one observes how well groomed they are.Nice moment. Regards. Klaudio.

Innocent age, especially the little girl, and she was looking directly at you.
Something had drawn the attention of the other boy, but the outcome is beautiful picture.
(you may need to correct the note, dear Maria, a double post of the paragraph).

Charming children from the remoted Atacama desert Maria, they've almost completed the puzzle, I like that daily life scene, hope a bright future for them, education and projects are the main solution to development

a very interesting spontaneous capture, full of the intensity of the moment when the children's play was interrupted abruptly and the scene changed radically. I wonder why you didn't include the boy too in the title, maybe because the little girl had a brief but strong eye contact with you and your camera. The tight framing, the perspective and the vivid colours enhance the impact of the intense fleeting moment. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely day,

Une scène touchante parfaitement cadrée où les bambins adoptent une attitude naturelle non figée
holmertz (51940) 2013-08-30 10:22
I like the children's startled looks which give the picture a strong spontaneity. But I can't help thinking what it would have looked like if they had stayed busy with themselves, unaware of you, for just another two seconds. I guess it would have been an entirely different picture. The light is very good and the colours are beautifull strong and mild at the same time.

Un momento perfecto, Maria! Mira a la mano de la chiquita, suavemente sobre la rodilla de su hermano grande -- muy conmovedor!

nice the snapshot with the two small kids to look at your lens so exciting with their innocent eyes.I like the snapshot as the excellent light management.I use to write and to see the 'beta edition' http://beta.trekearth.com/ and your photos looks huge with result to destroy the details,a lot of grains exist and so on.I don't know the size you upload your photos and if you use the beta of the normal edition.

Encantador retrato de estos dos chiquillos, desde luego han posado para ti con toda su atencion y un toque de timidez en el chico, la niña se ve encantadora, ambos tienen ese toque dulce de candor.
Muy bonito cromatismo el de la imagen.
Buena gestion de la luminosidad, la nitidez es tambien optima.
Te deseo una buena semana.
Saludos muy cordiales.

I like your vision about children's portraits. It is very natural and expressive. Congratulations!
parvatibb (1387) 2013-09-07 5:09
Lovely capture! Their expression is so natural and a little curious. I am shy when the subjects are people. Greatly composed!
PS: And yes on safari I got the chance to see lots of animals :) the other option was trans Siberia and Mongolia which you had the chance to visit. Maybe next time for me

Lep pogled na decu ...
Dobar trenutak snimka, kontrast, lepe boje.
Dobar rad, lepo pokazana deca, i trenutak.
Deca su nase najvece bogatstvo i buducnost.
Nice view of the children ...
A good time recording, contrast, beautiful colors.
Good work, beautiful children shown, and the moment.
Children are our most valuable asset and the future.
All the best.

Deux beaux enfants aux regard naturel, joliment habillé de roses, une couleurs douces et qui égaye le visage, une version moins large aurait peut être empêcher le bruit dans l'image!
Belle journée, bise
jmdias (63912) 2014-05-25 15:05
un precioso retrato de los niños, tan hermosos con sus trazos indigenas. me gusta la luz y los colores de la foto. me recuerdo del Mercado y das cosas que he comprado allá: um anillo, un plato y una calabaza decorada.
