Backs to the wall, no escape from the photographer... They're kids who haven't been trained from birth to grin at every camera pointed at them.
There's a nice contrast between the bravado of the younger boy, the stiffness of the older boy. The placement, angle and composition make them look small, vulnerable. I'd still like a bit less space at the top of the frame, a bit more at the bottom - down to that lad on the left's elbows. And maybe a bit less space on the left, to balance the two sides.
Exposure on darker skin tones is difficult, this has worked well but I'd maybe reduce red a bit and look for a bit more contrast. Not big changes. Will try a quick Mod.

Not on the same level as your previous uploads, it still has an endearing quality with the innocent expressions and colourful tops.

Its underexposed quite a bit, likely dues to light from the wall, and the boys faces look better with some brightening. Colour is very saturated, - again a feature of underexposue, so a small amount of desaturation gives a more natural appearance, - to me at least. All depends too on how your monitor displays this compared to mine.

I see the US dollar bill in the hand, suggesting they were rewarded for this quick pose, - which Is good. Im sure it made them happy.

Ive modified as suggested, and cropped closer, less wall. I feel that central placement suits this pose well.


Regards


Willie

Basis of a fine shot, but I would come in much tighter. There is some under exposure, a product of auto exp[osure, a lot of white wall and no compensation, and you have over saturated to bring out colurs. A bit too much of the latter.
