one of my older photos from the archives :P
i shot this on Sentosa Island, i was there to try out my 80-200 lens with a 2X tele convertor :)

spotted these kids posing for photos for their parents who are just out of the frame :)

i liked their expressions, their look relaxed and calm :)

slight crop to remove a little space just behind the little girls bagpack
removed colors and adjusted tones to get sepia colors

The tender care of sister and brother is the fact that strikes me here, Koh. Wonderful capture as the others already wrote, the sepia adds a lot to the mood. Your angle chosen for the composition is fantastic so we can follow their view. Great job my dear, great....

...and you probably got the best picture! Excellent composition. The fountain creates the perfect background. Well done!
