    hi,

    Thank you for your responses.

    "He came towards us having looked at our face". If this sentence is correct with grammer and all, pls let me know:

    1)Is that means he was going to them by looking thier face? (going and looking was taking place at a same time?)

    or what that exactly means.
    2) One frined replied me that first he looked at your face them came towards you.

    So please explain me which is the right meaning?

    Thank you,
    Marina

    If not, then what exactly does it mean?

    2) One friend told me that he looked at their faces first and then he came towards them.

    So please explain to me which is the right meaning?

    Having looked is short for had looked:
    1. He had looked at our faces first, and then he came towards us.

    2. Having looked at our faces, he came towards us.

    3. He having looked at our faces came towards us.

    4. He came towards us after he had looked at our faces.

    5. He came towards us after having looked at our faces.

    5. He came towards us having (already) looked at our faces.
