[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I am back from Nepal...a beautiful country with very friendly people. I was sick for the last two days but I have a very healthy and rich memories of such a wonderful country.

I used basic editing for this picture. Just a bit desaturation, level adjustment and very light neatimage. I can do a lot better than this post-processing and I will (which I will post later here in TL).

The Story:

This was taken in Patan Durbar Square. This mother was begging. I brought along with me some chocolate and ballpens which I gave to the kids. I took a LOT of pictures of them. As a matter of fact, I could spend the whole day just photographing the three of them. So much stories to tell from their beautiful eyes. So much colors. So much life.

I was sick (stomach problem) that day. I was sick for the last two days during my Nepal trip. But after spending sometime with the people there, I feel a lot better. I counted my blessings. For one, I have a good camera. And I am sharing this poignant yet beautiful capture of these people.

I am back home. My mind is still in Nepal.

(I am posting the Sepia version as a workshop - which I also posted in TE today. Which one is better?)

Hi Manuel,
IMHO I prefer this one, more real emotion in it... Strong emotion...

Hi Manuel.
A very strong photo.
You did it well, the faces tell everithing!
Good DOF, POV and colours.
The man with white clothes in the background distracts a little the attention, but in a case like this, you have to think in the photo details (in this case many).
Great work, TFS

Good street picture. By seeing this picture I can smell Nepal again. All this in positive sense wonderful people and country. Like to go back at once.

Intense shot Manny - strong message about poverty and how fortunate most of us here on TL. Like your switch to photographing street scenes, it is very effective. Nicely done...

Trop de talent sur ce site pour avoir le temps de tout voir....mais celle-ci ,il ne fallait pas quelle m'échappe....
Pleine d'émotion et boulversante, cette photo est d'une richesse pour lesquels les mots sont trop pauvres pour bien l'exprimer.....
Mais pourquoi y a t'il tant de beautés dans ces scènes pourtant si difficiles à croire.....???
Un petit sourire vert...pour nous avoir livré une superbe partie de l'univers....
Un gros merci pour ce cadeau inestimmable...
Allez hop...dans mes favoris....
