    Thanks for looking and the very pertinent comments this picture has drawn. I am happy, in the end, coincidentally, both my entries - in the main and open categories - ended up 7th place!

    Congrats on a great capture and a fine finish. The colours, subjects, framing and composition make this worthy of its high finish despite some technical challenges - for me the massed block which hides part of the right-most girl is not a problem but grounds the sujbects and balances against the mass of wall behind them and together they give this shot all its power. Crop tighter and you lose all of that.

    Well. you've certainly broken WC Fields rule about never doing a film with kids or dogs! A very engaging street image of a different world though & well timed & gets in my tt

    It was a cold winter morning in a remote village near Hubli. Obviously, these children were new to someone taking shots of them, and hence the constant stare as long as I was there - the dog didn't seem to mind it though! They were sitting in a half-shade, half-bright area, so I couldn't do much to avoid the harsh sun. Leave the technicalities aside, I was more admiring the innocent togetherness of these children at the dog going about their work basking in the warmth of the bright sun on a chill day. And thought I should share.

    Definitely a favourite; tells us a lot; I thought the lighting was a bit too uneven on first viewing but it has grown on me. Well seen and captured.

    Great human interest, color and texture combined for a fine shot.

    This is a wonderful capture. I would love to know more about the story behind it. In my top picks! Good Luck!

    Beautiful shot but I would prefer if the children were concentrated on the task at hand as opposed to the photographer. Love the colour and composition.

    Nice capture of a moment in time.

    love the soft colours and the dog taking his afternoon sleep.

    Great warm light, nice scene .. for my liking, I would have preferred a different framing (probably without the dog). However this moment is very charming.

    The tough lighting and hence blown left side is the only downside to a wonderful capture

    Everything here is pushing me to push this into first place. This is an incredibly beautiful and natural photographic image, and one which I would seriously consider worthy of a book of fine photography. I don't often say this but I would like to see this in a larger format professionally rendered as a full sized photographic "plate".

Purely on a gut response, my number 1!

    An excellent heart warming photo.. Despite some highlight clipping in left side sunlight, the colors and temperature brings life to photo. The slightly scared look of children with holy ash and saffron is beautiful. The street dog combined in the study shows the love ,tolerance and blending with nature which are very nature of sacred India.

    Lovely scene well composed and caught,the door adds a lot, and just a pity that the left side is washed out a bit.
