Deep in the jungles of India, in a small, remote village on the foothills of Ghat Mountains, there live children of the forest.
Their life is hard and harsh, sometimes it's cold, sometimes they're tired, from the whole day work that is too much for their weak bodies. Yet they are able to retain good will and hope, and the ability to be happy with what they have, with those simple joys of life, not caring about expensive toys that some children far away maybe possess.

WOW...this is super nice! I really like the movement of the kid and the abstract like blurred background (yet we know exactly what the background is). Excellent and original. Well done!

Great, really captures the feeling of energy and joy. Good contrast between the subject and the background with just the right amount of blur. Did you do it in camera or with PP? In either case, it's really well done.

Great shot, full of joy! It's a sad story (your note) but happy one in the same time. And I thing that it's something that people in wealthy countries have forget: happiness is not necessary in expensive toys... Very good panning since the child is very sharp. For having experimenting the technique, it is not easy to have that result. Very, very good work. Technically but more, artistically.

WOW for me too, Antoni, this is a one in a million shot - the wild boy, the Jungle Boy caught perfectly as he arcs through the trees, which are of curse blurred...

Not an easy one but perfect mannaged sharp on subject and movement blur on the background, a pleasant shot of playing children, good note to describe their poor life.

I missed this one, sure, a success, so dynamic, cropped knee I don't know if you wanted it, but it's looking good.

Great photo along with great note. The photo portraits the kids struggle hanging onto life like this rope while at the same time being happy and joyful like you said in your note.
nice movement created by your panning. Well done!

"from the whole day work that is too much for their weak bodies. Yet they are able to retain good will and hope"
very touching photograph..I really really hate to know some children have to work while mine is going to a warm and good school...coming home everyday refreshed mentally, happy as he has learned new good and interesting things..I am happy for him but never enough as I feel embarrassed too..
a great panning too, technically..

jbweasle (9373) 2005-12-18 6:08
Hi Antoni, you have a great impression of movement here. It's an interesting capture with the stillness blurred and the movement sharp. With the boy's thrown back head we can see the excitement in his game.
ballyna (1689) 2005-12-19 18:02
I loved your panning here,very nice.and the colors all over the compo are very pleasing,making the pic more colorful like green leaves,red skirt etc.
Mistral (15402) 2006-01-13 18:32
