I love the expression you captured here!!! The B&W tones are very bold and dynamic; it focuses our attention ever more on the boy giving us the raspberry:-) Again it is the expression that captures and holds the attention - makes me chuckle:-) Gratz on the high finish.

This is my favorite of the challenge - I hope it ribbons. I love the black and white tones and the DOF. The kid's got a great expression and it's also fun to see what else is happening in the background. Good luck!

OK, I'm going through the Free Study submissions, purposefully finding those images I think are shot with a less conventional eye - this is one of those images! Thanks for offering something that isn't just DPC friendly eye-candy (though of course there's nothing wrong with eye-candy). I'll be picking one of these images for the Mu (most underrated) award:

Positives:Fabulous!!! Has 21.gif gsal written all over it! The focus on the face here is just fantastic, it anchors the composition so well, with the other elements complementing but maintaing a supporting role. The toning here is perfect too. I also really like the stark highlights in the white hat and hood.

Critical stuff: Nothing at all.

Overall: For me, a perfect picture. 10.
