|A face of a young Malagasy girl in a crowd, carrying her brother on her back. I wanted to make a close-up picture, capturing all expressions in her face. Every time I see the face, I still wonder what she's thinking... Many greetings, Arjuna.|

It's a sweet shot, Arjuna. There seems to be a mix of trepidation and excitement on her face.
You "only just" managed the light in this one - those strong sunlit areas where her hair casts spaghetti shadows are just kept away from her eyes by the structure of her face, so preserving the 'wholeness' of her eyes and the catchlights too.
The b&w treatment was a good choice.
Nice DOF and soft background bokeh. Really the biggest issue with this is the hands of her brother, it's not immediately clear where those hands come from and they are, at first, quite disconcerting.
