WOW!!!

This is one of the best portraits I have ever seen! Perfect in every point (composition, camera settings, post processing, ...)

Thanks for sharing!

Totally agree with this. Something about this portrait is bringing memories of childhood. Rest are excellent too.

Great captures! Thanks for sharing those very natural portraits.

This one is awesome:

Regarding the image below, I would rather stop down to, say, 6.3 (and use a shutter speed slower than 1/1000) in order to have all the children’s faces in focus.

Just a friendly comment.

At last - an injection of some reality here. A fair and accurate comment, Ashley, presented in a kind and constructive manner, and made with some courage as it challenges the prevailing trend of this thread.

Thank you so much. Agree .I was in a hurry because some small vehicles were coming  at the time of shooting.

Yes Philip. It is a valuable commitment. As I mentioned on the OP  it is a snap shot i just wanted to bring a different type of photography of an village in Egypt not the usual " temple or pyramid "

Hello Zakaria. I think you realise that my comments are not directed at you, but rather at the nature of the majority of replies to your thread. It is good of you to remind everyone of your OP, in which you stated that the images are snapshots. As such, they make an interesting album about the village children.

Ashley's example indicates that, as photographs, they could have been improved at the capture stage and, as you have added, sometimes we don't have time to get everything right so the results are less than optimal.

Even so, some of the snaps have potential and, in my view, the last one might be the most powerful of the set after a bit of editing to take it beyond a snapshot: e.g. a change of framing and backgound -

Nice framing Philip. You know photographing strangers  not so easy and when you walking with big stuff like fa*200 things tend to be more difficult  but most of the village people knowing me since I was a child so no problem to take some photos in a hurry.

Today I will try my new DFA *50mm and will try to edit photos before publishing.

Great set, I find these refreshing and spontaneous.

You succeeded in capturing great snapshots, and I personnally like that you didn't heavily overprocessed the images, retaining their spontaneous qualities.

I view this situation as a yellow stop light.  If I'm doing faces, I try to automatically remember to sip down for focus.

Nice. Really like the B&W images. B&W seems to work really well with portraits.
