[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This shot was taken in a small farming village close to Xian, home of the Terracotta Warriors. These people live a very simple life, growing corn which can just been seen drying in the background. The children do not have the material goods that many of our children have but they do have a free and happy life. This child has a chocolate bar, a rare treat! In the winter some of the farmers paint pictures to subsidise their income.

This shot has had no PP work except reduction of size.

Hello Jean,

This shot is just captivating!
The faces have expressions that say so much! I wonder if they say what I imagine they are saying or whether different cultures contain different messages!
Lovely detailed, sharp images! Wonderful colours! Thank you for the interesting notes too!

kind regards,
Bev :-)

This is such a beautiful picture!! The baby is adorable. Fantastic color and detail. TFS

How you must have enjoyed yourself, having seen the Great Wall of China and like here this child - what a precious capture.
TFS Jean.
Have a nice weekend,

Hello John!

A cute portrait. The kid shows proudly his treat . His eyes seemed to say '' Look man , what I have just got ! '' (^_^)
Well captured with this tight composition and both facial expression. Bravo!

Hello Jean,

This is an excellent double portrait - the frame is well filled in this close up, and it makes a pleasing composition.

You have caught a lovely relaxed expression on the mother's face, and the child is nicely absorbed in the KitKat.

Well captured,



Hi Jean! I think this is a beautiful portrait. I like the composition and the timing of the shot as well as the warm colours. Thanks for sharing!
