Por el camino todos los niños te saludan con la mano, gritan, saltan, algunos bailan. Dicen "Mzungus, mzungus", que es la forma en la que llaman al hombre blanco, y se ríen. Algunos, a la que ven a lo lejos que te acercas con el vehículo, empiezan a correr hacia la carretera para tener tiempo a saludarte. Otros cargan que su hermano pequeño a cuestas, y ambos agitan la mano. Algunos padres se animan y saludan también. Te sientes feliz.

Nice Capture


Whilst I find the hand rather distracting the eyes more than compensate for me.
Very nice skin tones also.

HI Enric,
A sharp portrait of this child with such bright eyes. Good contrast while maintain the gray tones alive.
I like the light reflecting in her eyes and the totally blurred BG to isolate the girl completely.
Well done,

Francis Xavier

HI Enric...excellent portrait...well composed with excellent tones and focus...well done


Hello Enric

A wonderful and moving image of this child. I like it very well with the hard contrast. Nice work

What an absolutely stunning image. This is a photograph that seems to reach deep into the soul.
Indeed, no matter which angle I view this from, those haunting eyes seem to follow and stare.
Easily good enough for Life Magazine or National Geographic. Thank you for this.

un portrait comme je les aime, le regard, le cadrage déporté sur le coté, un fond troublant par son absence...

congratulations Enric,


Hi Enric, another nice moody b&w shot of these kids. I like the hand in the way as it keeps the eyes as your focus and not what can be an expressive mouth. Fiona
