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

Thanks Mitch for your comment which made me change the title.

Very nice, Usman, the black and white conversion, the comp, the direct expressions, the similarity of the hand positions.

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.
