    hehe! Ya this lens is killing me with the price and weight, esp. since I was carrying 2 bodies to Siem Reap. But worth it!

    u want another version of NGC "afghan girl" hah?

    The eyes are the main focus of this type of theme and before seeing anything else, the eyeball of the boy already show distracting images rendering a discounted shot.

    Other than that I think your lens use also not appropriate. If u want to have a closer snap, you should use a prime and walk in as it makes the details finer and more real-like. Zoom lens somehow never get a true life view which I dun have very scientific reference to explain why also. U can try at home and u will see. Try using your 70-200 at 50mm and get a prime 50mm. U will get what I mean.

    But at that time, there were many children and I saw him staring at me. Thus I took this shot of him.

    Oh I will be complaining about the backache at the end of the day.
    But usually I won't bring out 2 bodies and the zoom lens so that will ease the load.

    Thanks for all yr comments!

    hey bringal, interesting shot with lots of emotion works for me! great snap - one nit pick (for me) would be the image softness, especially on the eyes, where this shot has it's story. Cheers!

    This is also my first few attempts at shooting people, usually shoot landscape pics. Still learning!

    I shoot at 140mm f2.8 1/500 iso100.

    Good job with the closeup portraits. Would like to see more environmental portraits as well - what are the children doing, why are they standing/posing like that, etc. Straight-on portraits, unless giving a visually very interesting subject, don't usually engage the viewer into thinking much.

    That said, http://www.pbase.com/bringal/image/64638712
    is very good. Like the framing

    Cheers,

    Personally for me, #1, the clipped chin doesn't make for a nice image.

    eye to left slightly out of focus. A little more DOF may be better.
