On a small road i was looking to the rice fields, the place was so beautiful, the smell so good. The weather of course hot, and my 5D on my shoulder. I saw far some students coming  on  bicycle.
Ok i stay in the middle of the road,  and let see how i can frame it.
sawasdee krap ;o)

Salut Simon, with such delightful subjects, the shot would be already interesting, but your slight tilt, the framing is what gives it a special je ne sais quoi that is both beautiful and dynamic, spreading their innocent joy into every pixel of the shot. Again, the tonal range is perfect, a tremendous work.
Thanks for your invitation! What a place...

Ca fait plaisir et du bien à mes petits yeux de revoir du Simon....
J'aime beaucoup ce cadrage....c'est l'original ou y a du crop?
C'est super vivant avec ce cadrage très serré, ca me botte.
Ensuite, le léger mouvement sur les roues, ces smiles et ce regard de coin, ca donne une de ces vies à ce moment....waouhhhh
Pis question n/b, tjs avec ce léger "teinté", comme tu es capable d'en me scotch.
Bref, très bon

Il y a de la joie la dedans! c'est du trenet en photographie, ca sent l'été, les blés, la joie, la jeunesse insouciante! Un cadrage aux petits oignons et bien sur ce n&b dont tu as le secret! Du grand Simon en favori imédiat! c'est de la bombe ce qui sort aujourd'hui! (pas nucléaire, ouf!)

Alors ici j'admire ta technique et ton timing autant que le "feel", l'atmosphere un peu desuete de certaines annees, tres charmant d'ailleurs. J'aime vraiment beaucoup ton travail en grand angle - je le trouve tres vivant et percutant.

Hi Simon,

This is very beautiful Photo, full with real Dynamics.

Photo is talking about natural dynamism of kids, bubbling life full of fun & joy & innocence of childhood & that is getting more prominently seen in small world of Village with green nature.
Not only you but I even can smell the sweet sour smell of muddy rice paddy.
