  2. These are just stunning Rathika. I love these soulful faces. Your handheld technique must be amazing to get shots as sharp as this at these speeds. No suggestions for improvements, I think they're perfect.
     
  3. Great warm colors I alwasy look for you post for insight to a part of the world I may never get to see

  5. I can only see one of the images (girl with candle) but it is outstanding. Nicely taken image.

    Ah ha the images have appeared, glad I came back for another look. They are all very nice with my favorite being #2.

    Special moments

    I'm very much taken with these...especially the 2nd, and with the twins.
    You must have been excited and anxious to see the results after taking them!

    I love the third, in fact no I love them all! If I could be so cheeky as to make a suggestion though? In the third photo I would lose the two boys and just keep the girl like so:
    [​IMG]

    She has a charming innocent quality about her and the sweetest of faces!
    Hope you don't mind me modifying your picture.

    Thank you Chris,Dave,Frits,Jeff,&Jeff Kohn for looking and nice comment.
    I appreciate it.
     
  20. You've really captured the moods of the children here. This comes through especially in the 2nd one. I like what Chaz did with the 3rd, but I also like the original. The 2 boys had a fun element to the photo.
