Gypsy kids shepherding their lambs near Islamabad. They gave me this look when they saw me pointing my lens at them.

Love their expressions, Usman -- not sure whether those are looks of simple curiosity or apprehension but having them mirrored like that is very effective. Composition and conversion are excellent as others have noted.
