Boa noite JeanPaul,

Excellent photo in black and white!
Lovely children, excellent timing!
Contrast, light and sharpness are very good.
Very well done and framed.

Beautifilly captured moment, JeanPaul.

They look so full of mischief. The motion blur of the excited youngster in the centre is brilliant against the other, relatively still Subjects.

They all look like they're having a great time in front of the lens for you.

Great choice to convert to monochrome, it really brings in a great contrast, and no doubt reduces the confusion due to the many different colours of the clothing,which may have had a negative impact on the shot.

Excellent stuff.


Great work, nice b&w, sharp focus and their expressions are priceless. TFS

HI JeanPaul...excellent shot. Nice posing from your subjects with excellent focus and tones.


Olá Jean
What a beautiful portrait of young people with a great language. Good B/W choice
