Who I am

By Nic_WA    
Another one from the Nareakeara school in the remote Solomon Islands (South Pacific) - around 60 kids, aged from 5-15, from 4 villages. Most of them have a 40 minute walk to school through the jungle (knee-deep in mud in places!). Their first language is Are-are, second language is Solomon pidgin English and the children now learn English too. Thanks for looking Smile

super how you have concentrated on the girl, but the eye bottom right adds that little distraction

Like the eye contact and tones in this - however for me the eye in the bottom RHC would be better toned down and possible blurs like the one on the RHS. As it tends to draw your eyes away from the main part of the image.
Well captured.
Regards Richard.
