Serious and sadly looking for these children. The little girl seems to have all the responsability of the little boy!
Very beautiful shot :-)

wow. youve really travelled Craig! this is a real poser of an image. Its beautifully shot but I get a whole set of contrasting emotional responses when I look at this. Which is precisely why I like it.

Nice shot Craig. Kids grow up quick in that part of the world.

...they have a story to tell.
Nice shadows involved however I think you could have lessened it in photoshop. Their faces are just too dark compared to the background.

@Ryan Yam: See below. :-)
Lovely capture. I agree with Ryan: a bit of Highlight/Shadows in PS (CS 1 or 2) or dodging and burning might be good here.

@Damon Schreiber: The original was in very bright sunlight with a lot of shadows. Did some extensive dodging in PS to get it to this point, but any further dodging pushed it too far and negatively impacted the tonal quality in the faces.
Yeah, they do tell a story...
It's how they say - a picture tells a thousand words.

Lovely shot. It was worth the work on it. I'd also love to see a tight crop on the hands .... that is the powerful part of this photo.
