I debated over whether to post this comment, because on one hand I don’t want to destroy any illusion you may have of the young subjects in your photo, but I also think you should be aware of what’s really happening.
The reality is these boys are getting ‘high’ on glue or solvents impregnated in the cloth they are breathing through. This is quite common in larger Indian cities, and is unfortunately spreading to Regional centres as well.
Judging by their appearance, these boys seem to be relatively new to this activity. But once the addiction has taken hold, there is no going back as young brain cells are destroyed completely by this kind of abuse.
Again, I’m sorry to break it to you in this way, but now you know what’s going on, next time you may take another approach.
I’m not saying you should definitely get involved on a personal level, but on a couple of occasions when I have come across young children in this situation (early experimentation), I have taken away their ‘implements’, taken them home and told their parents (or teachers).
In the ‘big picture’ this may well be none of my business, but it’s a situation that’s difficult to ignore.

Default To P-S-I-G: Un peu lent ?

Pourtant c'est un vendeur de la Fnac qui me l'a conseillé le Tamron :)
Il ouvre à f/2.8 quelle que soit la focale utilisée entre 17 et 80 mm.
J'ai utilisé le 75-300 car le sportif était assez loin, le but était de faire un gros plan.
