I did a shoot for a travel organization named Destinations Unlimited recently on Defence day at a school Mount HIRA (Street Children School).. The lighting was challenging as I didn't bring my external flash so I had to work with the available light.. The kids co-operated a lot and we had fun shooting them as they were happy singing, dancing with the team..

I like the noise on the background as well as the intense texture of the image. Makes the image more gritty/real, also framed really well :)

Really nice edit, beautiful textures. Shame about the high ISO noise, though it doesn't lose any details in the important areas

Strong emotion, good composition.. Really nice shot

yeah I didnt have the flash so had to use a higher ISO.. but still I tried my best to reduce the noise, while still keeping the sharpness.. I kind of got what I wanted.. thanks for the words.. :) appreciated..
