Once, all of us have been like these good guys.
I had a class like this one. My best mate and friend was Lilianne. Some of us were shy, others absolutlely crazy.
In this photo... I can see me and my mates, at that time. Sometimes memories make us smile...I hope you have good ones too.

These good guys were members of a class at Tirano.
I converted the image in BW, I croped it and work in CS 4 (lighting efect).

Hello, Teresa -
This image is special - the range of expressions on these children covers the entire spectrum of emotions; joy, delight, hesitation, shyness ... and more. The b&w gives it a timeless feel - this could be my class, as well. The wonderful quality of light that you have in so many of your photos is present here, too. Your images are full of life and light - I really admire them. Well done, my friend.

The child in front is perfect. So is the lighting. I love the b&w. Nice choices.
Oh, and the composition is wonderfully spontaneous.

Bonjour Teresat,
Quelles belles expressions sur le visage de ces enfants. Excellent choix du blanc et noir qui force notre attention sur le plus important: les yeux.
Merci du partage et bonne soirée.

It's wonderful, Teresa!
The lighting and tones are excellent and the B&W is perfect for it. It gives it a timeless feel. I LOVE all the different expressions and the detail is superb. It most certainly made me smile and reminded me of the sweet days of childhood. :)) Many thanks and warmest wishes,

Hi Teresa
Great black and white capture and far most, the post processing is done well specially by making surrender a little bit darker
The children are joyful and smiling and the lighting angle is precise for here
Best wishes, Alireza

Image viviante et souriante, tous ce jeunes avec des attitudes différents, le premier nous fixe bien son regard, le autres sont plsu dissipés, très beau détail et ensemble viviant.

Bravo et amitié


Dear Teresa,

It's a great capture, that drives the years back to the colorful memories of age.
I can see myself too.. somewhere in the little crowd.
Beautiful B/W, where colors spring in hearts, watching the image.
Thanks for the memories.
Have a great day.


Hola Teresa
Emotiva imagen de recuerdos pasados , buena edicion que nos lleva a cuando nosotros eramos niños , buen virado en blanco y negro , encuadre apropiado y buena luz , felicidades

Buen fin de semana
un saludo

HI Teresat ,
Your subject reminds us of our good childhood,well in this B&W shot you captured these cute boys with nice lighting and shades,a little issue darker tones on the flower pot which lessen the details a little bit but over all a lovely presentation my friend.
Best Regards

Bom dia Teresat

It reminded me when I was little and I went to school to listen to friends ... but not the teacher ... HAHA!

Good and happy mood.
excellent b&w work. Great timing.
Nice atmosphere, .
I notice all these expressions of child and that is wonderful.
Teresat thank you, you always do back great memories.
Now I am 6 years.
Clever use of light.

Um grande abraço

Ciao Teresat

Nossa!! voce foi buscar memorias maravilhosas
em nossa mente, coisas que esta foto mostra o que todos
nos aqui passamos. Fabulosa criatividade e tiro!
Você escolheu um ângulo muito bom esse cuidado de perspectiva e profundidade.
Composição e apresentação são bons.
Muito bem feito,

Tenha um bom dia das Mães!


Hello Teresat,

Mmm! Cutting the head of the adult (^_^). Normally I am not a fan . But here it serves well the composition. Re-enforcing it in fact. Smart choice. This technic is often used in old Looney Tunes comics.

Lovely joyful street scene.

Hello Teresat! You have the real talent to capture great moments in time! This one makes no exceptions! The b&w has great lights and shadows in it and it's true that it makes us smile and think of when we were like them. Very well observed and very well done, thanks!

Hi Teresa,
Another nice capture that you only seem to have the secret.
This reminds me when our teacher brought us together to go see a movie, one I think was Ben-Hur with Charlton Heston. My little brother who looked like those kid in background of your photo had left before the end, he was terrified. :)
The B&W is a good choice! The use of lighting effect is done with subtlety and this adds just a "plus" at the ambient for a nice contrast and a good highlight of the happy or shy expression.
Great fluidity of grey nuances, here!
Excellent and evocative photo,as usual! Annie

hello Teresa,
this is a photo to make me smile. As you say, each child has their own character. I like your b&w conversion has it helps illuminate the image.

Hi Teresa,

You are right! Youth is the best give one can receive!!The innocence of that tims in someones life is truly priceless. You have done a great job (as ususal) capturing this in a photograph! Just looking there are so many different emotions and so many different stories from one student to another! I love the black white with this picture. I think it makes it timeless.
I hope this finds you well!
Well done!!

Hi Dear Teresat,
great capture for us and so special capture for you.Sometimes some photos are unforgettable.Great W&B work.Beautiful light and sharpness.TFS.Necla.


belleza de foto, la niñez es lo mas bello, el tono de grises bien logrado te felicito

I love pictures of children! Mostly because they smile so much! Love the perspective here Teresa! Nice BW conversion! I still see me and my friends as children, isn't that strange? We are all girls...not women. I see strangers as WOMEN. haha! Me and my mates have lots of fun! This is a nice interpretation!

Ciao Teresa,

once again your affection for the children manifest in a photo.
I also like your words.

Good weekend

Bom dia Teresa!
Graziosa ripresa di una scena quotidiana. Bella: esprime allegria, gioia di vivere.
Ottima la nitidezza dell'immagine e buona l'idea della conversione in bianco e nera.
Ciao! Vanda

Boa noite Teresa,
Belíssimo momento, apetece dizer: "tudo bons rapazes" que ares traquinas, bem, apanhados, as expressões deliciosas. Excelente olhar, parabéns!!
Um grande abraço Teresa,

Bonsoir Teresa,
Beautiful pose and expression of these child,
great in black & White, nice contrast and light,
nice moment of this daily life scene.
very well done.

Children always make a good subject to capture and this picture is a real feast for the eyes, dear Teresa!

Great focus and nice color tone make this shot so appealing.
The joyful mood of the children (in this picture) and some of them even not aware of getting photographed do add to the charm of this shot.
Well caught emotions and mood in it!

Have a nice weekend.

Um abracos,

Hello Teresa - so much life reflected here, in all these great expressions. Only one looking right into the camera, but he draws attention beautifully, and begins our exploration of the rest. A nice portrait of childhood here!
