The song lyrics from Cat Stevens Tea For the Tillermanīs album came to my mind when I looked for a title of this image, taken on the playground at one of the oldest primary schools in Reykjavik. Agains the black walls the colors of the childrenīs clothes fits into the theme of "burst of color" - and I had these children in mind as soon as the challenge was announced.

Color punched in Lightroom and the image cropped a little bit, exported to PS for levels and curves for some tonal adjustments; then resized, sharpened, framed and saved for the web.

Beautiful composition! Love how the bright colors just pop against the grey (lovely textured!) wall behind!

i like the crop and the contrast processing is nice on the wall but a bit heavy on the children

There is a lot to see in this image, which makes it standout. Nice job of processing.l

Totally love this. Going back to look at this, I hope you win, it's such a wonderful shot, with the stark grey building in the back ground, and the pop of colour from the girls clothing just wonderful . 10

I love this image! personally I am not too fond of the complete exclusion of color of parts of an image and I would have added some hazy nuance at the top of the picture. But I still like it a lot. 8

Havent worked through all the photos yet, but im inlcined already to have this one as my Blue. One 10 vote does not make a ribbon but this is still a brilliant take and the theme/title to it speaks volumes
