This is a really nice image Arpit. The high shot has allowed you to show some of the environment as well as the group and it helps to set the scene.

I think the choice of B+W is excellent as it allows viewers to concentrate on the image with no distractions.

I would have liked to see more space between the right hand boy and the image edge to balance the space on the left side, but apart from that this is really good.

I agree with Eric about a bit more space needed on the right - it's a pity that the boy's shoulder is cut off. I guess you were perhaps standing on a step or chair, improvising a position where you could look down, and quite possibly you didn't have the scope to get a wider view. This sort of work always brings practical limitations.
But full marks plus some for creative, intelligent use of portrait format (and that's something that I really enjoy.) This composition relates the children to the street background, which is their life, and the diagonal of the road creates a dynamic feel. You've captured their dreams, and the circumstances that they must rise above.
Like this one a lot.

Very nice. Leave the composition as is for me, nice and tight pulling all interest to the faces. First class mono conversion, which suites and the wide angle adds a great deal. Background adds the setting. Might just tone down the white shirt. High ISO adds that bit of grit too.

fine mono `portraiture'...have uploaded a mod 'cos I thought it might take a crop. My LR import uses auto-tone as a default, but I've done nothing else. Smile

I thought of doing a crop like cats_123 but when I looked it just was another group of kids with a football and it lost the environmental impact. As a crop it works but has less impact.

welcome on board, very good picture indeed.

I won't discuss technicalities because the greatness of the picture is based on its ability to express feeling,
all other matters are minute details.

Thanks u all for ur valuable Critiques and comments..and yes i think if i had wide lens like 11-16 then it would be better,.. but at the time of taking this picture i was just passing the road and saw them playing football and it was interesting because all boys and girls were there,.. i just took out my camera and they come to pose me, by standing with my 18-55 kit lens. using 18 mm focal range without using any chair or something else this is what i got,.. and yes i also think some more place is require in the right side of the frame...
@Cats_123 i saw ur cropped virsion but personally i agreed with mrswoolybill, as the diagonal of the road creates a dynamic feel...
thanks Smile
