I like this shot a lot, Jackie. Good DOF, 3 different expressions and a nice background. I even like the use of vertical. Welcome to the forum. Keep posting!

Very nice. May be just a little over saturated.

Thank you. I was very lucky to get this shot. I took it through window bars of a village school, these kids are not attending school for whatever reason...pretty sad.

for me the girl in the middle, her expression just makes this shot!. i think a light unsharp mask and play with curves a bit for contrast will really make this pop.

This is a great shot, between this and the boy with the cool eyes you do not seem like a newbie!

Thanks lisalonewolf. I am newbie in the sense that I am beginning not to rely on dumb luck on auto, play with the settings and different lens and such on this trip to India. I am also a newbie because according to my father (who is an experienced photographer), I know nothing and he sent me here to this forum to get critiqued.

Hi Jackie - you are off to a fab start. The composition you have managed to capture in this shot is excellent with a nice DOF. I really liked you other portrait of the little boy as well. Maybe you should get your Dad to post some shots here as well !! Look forward to seeing more of your work.
