    daily activities of children ethnic minorities in Ha Giang Vietnam

    Hi everybody! During a trip to work in Ha Giang Province, Vietnam. I spent a bit of time to record the daily activities of children of ethnic minorities. I want everyone to have helped me have better photos for the times to come. Thank you.

    Hi Tien Duong,

    As you can see, I took a liberty and converted your url tags to img tags, so we can all see them without having to click the links.

    Personally I think they would be more powerful images if we could see their faces more and if the second wasn't hidden behind the basket of the first.

    Although the high viewpoint may have helped the composition by excluding distractions behind (?), it has hidden the faces.

    The shots have different colour temperatures; I suspect the AWB of your camera (whatever it is) was upset by the different scene content or the sun went in!

    Do you shoot RAW?

    Hi Nguyen, and congratulations on your first pictures. I like that in both pictures you have left space to the right for the figures to move into. I also think that you have captured the effort of the leading girl in the first photograph. Dave H has commented on the images, and as usual he has it right. Keep posting! Dave S

    Thanks Dave S, Dave H! I will draw the experience out of the picture. I usually shoot in Raw and have edited in Lightroom or photoshop.

    Welcome to CiC...

    I love pictures of people, especially people from other lands. These pictures could be an integral part of a photo story of the ethnic minorities...

    Their clothes and even their sacks are all so colorful! That is a very interesting subject, and well composed in the frame. My only suggestion would be the same as Dave's, which is to not shoot them from above. If you are at eye level with them you can see their faces, which I am sure tell a very interesting story too.

    Hi Tien

    Children usually look better when you shoot at their same eye level, not from above. Keep shooting!
