great composition carol, cud have cropped it to give it a panoramic effect, dat wud have looked even better

Hi Carol, Good job done. Very good composition. I have added panoramic effect to this photo. Please check the workshop.

Haha, this is great Carol!! Love all these uniformed girls in a row .. how cute! They all wear uniforms to school there don't they? I noticed that in Guat too, and was told this is also the case in Chile - maybe in all of Central and South America?
I love the negative space above them. Yeah, maybe it could have been cropped down just a little bit more, but it's not a big thing - I like it this way too.
Oh this was quite recent I see - you were just there in December!! A great shot Carol.

Hi Carol,
This is a really special daily life shot of the local people of Ecuador. Nicely captured row of schoolgirls in their uniforms. It's interesting to see how they study in cultures far from us. Technically a good picture regarding the distance and the circumstances, the PP work you did was definitely useful. Thanks for presenting!

hi Carol

Very interesting photo! It makes me think of my days in co-ed school when I found timid to be encoutering such a 'gang' of girls especially in convent 'uni-ed' school and always kept wondering of curiosity. And now seeing this make me glad of going to co-ed school.

I like the repetition of the uniforms in blue and 'no extreme' of each girl's attire, unlike in some countries there is no uniform and school wear is casual and poles apart. Not that it is better, but for graphic impression.

tfs, bill

Hello Carol.

Excellent image, nice composition and colors.

Jose Luis.

This is the kind of image I wish I had taken myself Carol. Very attractive and engaging as I inspected the body language of each girl. Well done and my complements...Danilo

Your ideas of showing daily life are excelent,there is so much choise to do so ,its not easy.


Very nice picture!!! A lot can be seen in it...
Reminds me of the famous lunchtime picture from New York, I'm sure you know, but hey I'm not so good with names, so...

Hi Carol:
I think you have a great eye for the whimsical, this is a rare photo on Tl, a winner.... I love the backs to the camera and the one end girl to break the symmetry by looking into the camera... Super photo.......thanks ....Roman:0)

hello Carol
excellent glance and photo

I love this image for two things: first it is so well balanced in color, etc. but the second one and most important for me is, that every girl tells a story with their body language, even though we are looking at their backs.
