Love this one, would be nice if the background would be one colour though, blue preferably :) The detail is great!

the white lights make the picture. great bokeh (which is not something I can say for more than about 1 in 10 images). 8

Comment by swagman:
The strength of a candid id being able to capture a meaningful moment in time, when you only have a moment to get it technically correct. You've done that nicely.

The weakness of a candid shot is you can't choose all the elements in the enviroment. You can use 'darkroom' techniques for improvement, hoever, which you've done. That's where I'll keep my comments, however.

If I close my eyes and open them, the first place my gaze is drawn to is the high contrast patch of snow along the fence. There are no visual elements to lead my eye anywhere else, so I have fo force my attention elswhere, rahter than have the image guide it. The second spot that grabs my attention is the bright section of road at the top of the image. The difficulty is, neither of these two spots are the subject of the image. You'd like the viewer's attention to go directly to the child. To do that, I think you need to lower the contrast of the two trouble spots I mentioned, and increase the saturation of the child's coat.

The path and wooden fence are nice lines that would help lead the eye to the child, if it weren't for the two hot spots.

Just my opinions.

Comment by Skip:
yes, you have achieved a bokeh effect, but i don't find that it is really enhancing your subject. as for the subject, something about the lighting is throwing me off. if this was shot at red rocks outside of denver, shame on you...there is such incredible backgrounds there that you surely could have found a shot that would have rocked the voters here...

Comment by sgauria:
I guess the benches are supposed to be the subject, but the structure of the picture leads one to the row of lights in the bg.

Having the subjects uncentered might make it more dynamic.

Comment by Imagineer:
Nice little pic of a familiar moment for me! (The carrier not the carried)

The angle is a bit bland though (eye-level) and the centering, while not a flaw in itself, does not aid the comp. in landsacpe format. I can't help feeling that a portait arrangement may have worlked better, showing more of the way ahead. Exposure is a touch harsh.

Comment by pixelmassive:
Nice grab... would rather see more ahead than behind because of the downward angle
