very nice daily life shot. It's a graceful portrait of what I think is a family of hard workers. There is a beautiful context on this great composition. Very good work!

Nice "people" motiv and intresthing scene
Very nice presented
Danos, I think this is one of your best. Composition, timing, the right eye-level pov are all great. Maybe a tad overprocessed, esp. contrast? I detect some halos around the girl's head, but I'm not sure. You seem to have focused on the people in the back, is that correct? If yes, it has worked well. Regards,
This really a great daily life image. So natural and so beautifully colored.
Excellent work. Keep on clicking.
A very pleasant composition on how all these people are standing in the photograph. Also all have completely different expressions on their faces. Very nice.
And a very elaborate note on the location. I like that. Thanks!!

Γειά σου Δάνο ευχαριστούμε για αυτή την όμορφη στιγμή!Πραγματικά εκπληκτική
I like how this group of people, or maybe family, is placed here. From the left to the right, from the front to the back and vertically seen sitting, kneeing, standing. So you got a perfect rhythm in 3D.
Good one !
Jolie scène de vie. Ces enfants son superbes.
Belle image colorée et techniquement bien réalisée.
bONSOIR danos, a veray great shot like a picture with beautiful light and colors.wonderful.

first of all thanks for the interesting note.
(I am considering the idea to go to this region next summer!)
as far as the picture is concerned, all subjects are very natural...but I like the surprised expression of the child on the right side. it looks like he did not realize somebody was taking a pic of him

Very nice report.

Both an amazing compo and a lively and compeling documentary. The positions and poses of everyone in the image wouldn't be better if they were staging.
Hats off also for the sharpness and DOF, light, colours and the comprehensive note. I didn't know of anything you tell us about.

welcome in the real world I think when I see a picture like this. We people in the west are rich when we look to these poor people in earth. Very good photo Danos, good composition and a fine quality shot, and thank you for showing the shot, good photojob, have a nice day.

Hello Danos. Vendors and Beggars. An impressing, drastic and at the same time beautiful picture. These poor families fight each day for their existence. You seized the motive adequately with the camera. The photo is in certain way a document. Best regards, Wolfgang.
- trekks (14348)
- [2008-04-29 23:28]
I find your capture of this pov to be very good quality and standard. Moment of truth in daily life here. Very well done expressive photo in every sense of the photography. Powerful photo.
I read in 'Cambodia Today' yesterday that the police in Siam Reap are taking action to prevent beggars to hassle tourists, even to clean every tourist place in Cambodia of any beggars! Strange if you consider the high crime rate that goes virtually unattended! A good capture conveying the mixed feelings you get when these guys come around... you would't mind to help, but if you give to one, all will run to you.. Vendors are something else, it is valid business!
Good colors and light here along with fine framing of the scene.

There is something very attractive with the soft colors and tones. The colors are wonderful, the light shining on the shore in the background, the expressions on their faces and the details look absolutely superb.

A daily life scene with interest at least for one reason, as I notice everybody's attention including the baby is focused on one thing..!
Your point of view is well chosen to show all persons, and the composition is perfect with the little guy in front!
Excellent composition, great placement of these people but I have a strange feeling with the skin of the little girl. Did you use some kind of noise reduction?
- clnaef (6289)
- [2008-04-30 6:22]
Une belle scène de la vie quotidienne.
What to say? I like the photo, it's dynamic and it's lighting and colors are so very unusual!
What I dislike here is an extreme poverty of these people (at least I think so). It's bad, really bad, little kids don't have to live like that. I hope that economic rise in East-South Asia will rise salaries and everything else for these kids also.
- Jakab (3867)
- [2008-04-30 9:00]
no doubt, an excellent picture, maybe the best one I have ever seen of Cambodian people. I have to praise that in spite of the bright background the faces are optimally exposed, their expression fill up the photo with emotion.

very strong impression with the boy and the rest of the family behind him. The POV and framing takes all attention to the boy and I am sure he tried to offer you some fruits. I like this way to catch my eye.

Γεια σου Δάνο και χρόνια πολλά,
Χωρίς να θέλω να μειώσω τις προηγούμενες, θεωρώ ότι αυτή ειναι η καλύτερη μέχρι τώρα της σειράς. Εχεις καταγράψει με όμορφο τρόπο το ανθρώπινο στοιχείο της περιοχής. Εξαιρετικό στήσιμο και με όμορφα χρώματα.

fantastic picture. Great colours and composition and the picture is very intens with all those people looking to you.
Don't they just tug at the heart-strings? Who could resists buying their bananas? The poverty in Cambodia is heart-rending. The framing of the image is excellent with almost no over-lapping. Good work

This one is great! You captured their expressions so well. Good moment. This little one in foreground with the bananas seem so amazed looking at you. Great daily scene, just a pitty many of these kids have to start working so early.
i like the scene you captured. is it one family? they all seem fully focused on the kid in your foreground: as if their lives depended (and probably they did) on whether he will sell some bananas to you. your note however useful for describing the lake in general, does not say anything about the situation at hand (why, for example, you mentioned beggars?).
- plimrn (21344)
- [2008-05-08 11:02]
Your very well-framed photo captures such an excellent sense of the pressure the beggars and those being implored feel; it hurts to look at your photo. Eswpecially when I think of Myanamar.

Πολύ καλό "timing", έδωσε πολύ καλό αποτέλεσμα που σου δίνει την αίσθηση ότι είσαι μέσα στα δρώμενα.
Εξαιρετική τοποθέτηση των ανθρώπων μέσα στο κάντρο σου δίνει την απόλυτη ισορροπία αλλά και βάθος στην φωτογραφία σου.
This is a very nice picture, and good note from you.
I think you should try portrait of the girl on left with the bananas, it would have come out nice as well. i tried it but cos of the size its looks just ok, but i think you could do justice to it with the original file.
posted a ws for you. :D
Dear friend, I am sorry to announce that I may be departing from TE very soon. The reason is that TE admins keep erasing my photos although here there are many similar ones, some without even a note! I keep on posting and they keep on rejecting without a "real" reason. when I ask for an explanation by e-mail, they keep ignoring me. Today as another act of threat they erased one of my first posts here. I posted on the forum requesting advise, they erased that post also. I cannot keep up with this rude behavior, I feel I am posting to my stupid pc since once rejected no one responds to my requests.
You be well and keep shooting!

Kids are always a good subject, Danos, but here what is in the scene is one of the 3rd-world big problem: under-age employment.
Children is a part of the family's working-force and this is why the situation is perpetuated for future generations, they never get the proper education.
Nice image in low afternoon light.

I am fond of images that depict the daily way of life of people around the world. The timing of this photo is perfect; the natural expressions of the boy and the girl in the foreground give character to the picture. I think the lighting conditions are hard. I wonder if the use of a flash could eliminate some contrast with the background.
