[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note

Kite flying is great fun,
Kid are kids just like all children around the world love to fly a kite...

Spotted this shooting opportunity just outside Ban Donexay village in Luang Namhta as I was riding along this deserted road on the way back to my GH. I simply loved the feeling of freedom, open empty space - so care free and full of indulgence they've had. The strong back lighting was quite a challenge to handle though.

What joy......

It also reminds me of the book 'The Kite Runner'

Setting: 70 mm, 1/100 sec, F13, ISO Raw 200, 1729 hrs

Hi dear Abmdsudi YTH

Very appealing shot, a little different from your daily style but so fresh and of course remains top quality. Getting and dealing for strong back sun light is so excellent. You are a great photographer indeed.

All the best and have a good day! Takero

Hello Abmdsudi,
Great to see kids enjoying themselves in the open air instead of being glued to their mobile phones or laptops. The backlight is well managed enabling you to capture the mood of the moment. Lovely soft colours and good sharpness.

Hello Abmdsudi
Wow, what a special light you had. Nice picture with great compo.Greetings

Bonjour, cher Abmdsudi,
Une image qui reflète la liberté des enfants et de ses jeux.
J'aime beaucoup la lumière qui de dégage de la composition.
Belle réussite.

The perspective makes me think to a kite...surfing.....ehehe..but this is not the sea but a road,where the effect of backlight on the ground is absolutely fantastic! Magnificent capture showing us the fun of childs from there,i like it! Have a nice weekend and thanks,Luciano

Dobro vece.
Interesantan pogled i trenutak, dobar tekst ...
Lepo pokazan put koji nas vodi tamo daleko u nepoznato, dobra perspektiva i kontrast, lepe boje, lepo uhvacen trenutak sa decom. Lep put i drvece, lep trenutak sa suncem.
Prijatno vece i mirna noc, sve najbolje.

Good evening.
An interesting view and a moment, a good text ...
A beautifully illustrated way that leads us far into an unknown, good perspective and contrast, beautiful colors, a nice caught moment with children. Beautiful path and trees, a beautiful moment with the sun.
Pleasant evening and a quiet night, all the best.

Ciao Abmdsudi, fascinating shoot with fantastic light, excellent perspective and wonderful warm colors, very well done, my friend, have a good week end, ciao Silvio

Bonjour Abmdsudi,

J'espère que cette route est bien tranquille car cela semble dangereux de jouer avec un cerf volant sur une route. J'aime le contrôle du contre jour et les reflets sur l'asphalte.

Hello Abmdsudi,

I like the shiny golden backlight reflected off the road. The diagonal axis of the highway adds dynamism to the shot and the kids flying their kites animate the scene. Tfs!

Hello Abmdsudi,

A road without cars this is in Belgium impossible, but excellent for the children to fly a kite.
You create depth and perspective too.
Composition and presentation are superb.
An excellent nature and pleasant colours too.
Very well done, TFS.

Have a nice weekend,

Hi Abmdsudi
Longue perspective de la route avec un bel effet de la lumière ou joue les enfants, bel effet aussi graphique des montagnes a horizon
belle réalisation
best regard

Oi, Abmdsudi!

Boa foto, o ângulo foi bem escolhido. A estrada tem um brilho bonito. Luz agradável e boa nitidez.

Hello Abmdsudi,
I like the almost-monochromatic nature of this photo. The reflections from the road and the leading lines of the road are attractive.

nice flagrant of the joy with the light making the asphalt to shine. I hope they weren't in risk because the cars, but analyzing your image we can't see any car or truck.
