Comment by Lutchenko:
Hey how long did you have to wait before the bird landed on that superglue lol.

My first reaction is that I'm not sure where to look in that we have a close up shot in which the subject matter is distributed throughout the image.

Personally I think it would work better with just the bird and the first apple or a different viewpoint to create a bit more negative space, but that is just my personal preference.

It's also a little unfortunate that the colour of the bird blends a little with the background but hey it's a wild animal eh and you have no control over it.

Overall it meets the challenge very well and you have also introduced an interesting element in the form of the bird.
The subject focus is good and the DOF removes dstraction that the background may otherwise have caused. It's a 6 from me.

A very cute take on the challenge. The lighting on the apples themselves is a bit harsh, but this is hard to control with a candid shot like this. I think the main issue that many voters will have is the crop. It is very tight in the vertical direction, and this really limits the appeal due to small image size. I can understand why you wanted to keep the left most apple in view because it is the least blown. The crop does focus our attention on the subject - but an alternate crop with just the three 'apples' the two and the bird may have allowed you to expand the size of the image a bit. In addition, you might have been able to adjust the exposure a bit (even in post processing) to reduce the shine on the two centered apples. Gave it a 6.

Comment by dahkota:
for what its worth, I prefer this one. the tree is more ominous, seems larger, the boy already looks defeated (in the other he still has a chance). One thing to remember is often the absence of color forces the eye to look at the shapes - emotion comes out more powerfully is there is not a central color to work off of (as in this image, the color is inconsequential to its meaning).

If I was going to shoot this image again, I would get closer to the boys side, at a lower angle, to put the tree in an even more overwhelming position.

when working in black and white, it is often easier to control the shades of gray the colors will turn out to be by working in your channels palette rather than layers - do a layer adjustment on each individual channel while viewing that channel only. In the case of this image, I manipulated the reds to turn out white and darkened the blues so the sky would be more ominous and the string and the kite tail would show up lighter and more visible (I popped it into photoshop quickly).

I liked this image for the challenge because it was a metaphorical end - you didn't beat me over the head with a literal end. Alas, I didn't vote, but probably would have gotten at least a 7...
