Award Shortlist   


Another series of photos taken at the little Primary school in Darahoa in the Central Highlands of Vietnam. This time the boys are the stars. It was breaktime and the children and in front of the classroom (f14 320th/sec zoom at 55mm).
The other pictures are of the pupils in the classroom and at during their break.
Great to see many of you could not resist the little girl in her white dress and her wonderful smile. Thank you for your comments. It took me ages to decide between V1 or V2 as they both show a different side of Trans personality.
Lets hope you like this series. Thank you for leaving a comment, advice, critique etc

Have a pleasant week-end,

I'd go with your choice as V1, it's more intense, questioning.

I find these shots so interesting and endearing. I teach children this age and the expressions on their faces really move me. Superb Jean Noel.

A lovely set of images of these primary school children. You've obviously built up a great rapport with them as it looks like they are enjoying posing for you and appear very natural

The intensity and almost doubtful expression of the boys is interesting. Well photographed, all.

Very much enjoyed the way you moved down to their low level to capture these small children in V1 to V3 - worked a treat. Also enjoyed the giants view in V4 and V5. Smashing, enjoyed these shots very much.
