Challenge: Candid VII (Advanced Editing VII)
Collection: Challenges
Camera: Pentax K-x
Lens: Sigma 70-300mm f/4-5.6 APO DG Macro for Pentax
Location: Clark Philippines
Date: Oct 19, 2011
Galleries: Emotive, Black and White
Date Uploaded: Oct 25, 2011

My aim was to stir up the viewers emotions.
Your interpretation is as good as anyone else's.
I nearly didn't enter this shot, I had many others to chose from my trip to the Philippines, which was full of candid shots. But when I saw this it just resonated some very strong emotions!

The title is 'holding on' in french.

I'm overwhelmed by all the nice comments, I actually feel like I did win a ribbon, THANKS TO ALL.

And thanks to Don for awarding me a
Posthumous Red Ribbon - my 1st Thanks for the appreciation.

This was a 10 from me Anita. This image shows so much emotion that I couldn't believe it didn't place in the top 3. It really tells a story. Apparently, 10 other people thought the same thing.

Another who liked this shot, though I would like to see a bit more 'punch' to it. Seem's a little flat but I am in the minority I guess :-)

As easy 7 from me! Beautiful.

It's just a wonderful image, helped immensely by the startling "not-thereness" of the mother's neck...

Truly beautiful, Anita, and completely deserving of all the kind words you've received. Love the toning - is it a quadtone by chance? Looks like one I used to use a bit.

You got a 10 from me, Anita. Great capture of a beautiful moment, like a dramatic movie scene!
Btw, funny how the PH red winner is on the other side of the world, and the yellow winner is right here in my office. :)

Got a 10 from me Anita. And I so disagree with your first commenter. Truly expected a higher score but I suppose it didn't do badly considering it's blurry :)

10. Got all of my attention, and definitely on an emotional level. Settled on being afraid. Thanks.

Fantastic shot. What a great capture.

extraordinaire (excuse my French) - those layers always make me emotional, so I apologies. See this for example

I wonder if this is water or some glass?
The monochrome conversion has a 21_F.gif whiteroom quality to it, which I envy.

kind of a scary emotion conveyed. Nice sketchy feel to the grainy black and white.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

This could've been a really cute moment, just so wish it was sharper and the highlights brightened a bit.
