Composition/Content - I agree with your choice to have Tanya occupy the left third of the image and the cloth she's holding occupy the right two thirds. I don't always like subjects that fill the frame, but in this case I'll make an exception. I happen to like that she's staring into the lens. This sells the image to the viewer , I believe. Tanya's pregnancy adds to the image dramatically, although "motion" would've been captured even if she weren't pregnant. In other words, the pregnancy makes this a wonderful image independent of the challenge theme.

Background - unobtrusive... nice

Camera Work - When an image "works" for me, like this one does, I have trouble finding fault or identifying things i'd do differently. If I didn't "buy into it" I'd have plenty to propose, I suppose.

Digital Processing - Same as previous answer.

Opinion - I'm a fan of this image. Tanya's pregnancy adds to the image dramatically, although "motion" would've been captured even if she weren't pregnant. In other words, the pregnancy makes this a wonderful image independent of the challenge theme.

Composition/Content - For me, the composition could be improved ever so slightly. I'd opt for a wider view... that is, I'd like to be able to see a little of what's to the left and right of the dogs. I like the concept and the sentiment of the image. The dogs strike me more as being the "subject" of the image than "motion".

Background - perfect for this subject. I'm happy with the sky taking up about 1/3 of the background with the land taking the other 2/3.

Camera Work Technical - Creatively and compositionally this image is substantially more than a snapshot. Technically, its not clear to me that you made any adjustments away from the point and shoot default settings. For example, blurring the background while keeping the dogs in focus might've improved the photo.

Digital Processing - Technical - I'm not sure what i'd do differently. Nothing strikes me negatively or significantly positively.

Opinion - I enjoy looking at the shot. I'm not sure about the title, though. I'm not sure from which dog is "I" . I would've assumed that "I" is the jumper, but I'm not sure since I don't see anything heading into his/her mouth.

Composition/Content - I happen to like the contrast between the blurred car and the in-focus TEXAS. I'm guessing that the commenters who don't like it , don't get it. That is, the car is in motion, and the wall isn't. I also like the compositional choices you made. In particular I like that the image is divided in half horizontally, with TEXAS on one side and the car on the other.

Background - Perfect choice, given your subject.

Camera Work - Technical - I don't know what I would've done differently.

Digital Processing Technical - I might have tried to saturate the car colors a little bit.

Opinion - I like the pic for its sentimental value as well as its creativity. Nice job.

Isaac On The Twisty Slide

Composition/Content - Trying to capture motion *and* trying to do it with a kid as your subject is a double challenge. Given that, I'm willing to be more accepting of imperfect composition. Nevertheless, I would've preferred a perspective of Isaac where the blue pole wasn't quite in the middle of the frame, and the bright wall (?) in the left corner was absent. I believe that you thought this out and planned the image carefully. I particularly like the reflections in the slide and the detail on the slide surface... bb's???

Background - Wish the blown out wall on the left weren't there. Otherwise I like the tree and overcast sky.

Camera Work - Technical - I don't know what I would've done differently given your selection of subject and composition. That's not meant to be a negative remark. I'm saying that the concept and the composition are simple. Extensive technical creativity is not really warranted.

Digital Processing - No complaints and nothing stands out as wonderful.

Opinion - Ultimately, I like the concept, and I think the execution was fair-to-good. I sympathize, as i've always been frustrated at the results of images I've taken of my kids on slides.
Water In Motion

Water In Motion

Composition/Content - I know you've received some criticism of the composition of this image. I don't dislike it as much as some of the others. I like that the water ends at the middle ofthe picture. I also like that I can see the source of the water. For me, this picture doesn't say 'motion'; it says water.

Background - OK, a little boring; could use more color saturation. I'm glad this was taken on a day with a threatening sky.

Camera Work Technical - Don't know what I would do differently, given your choice of subject and composition.

Digital Processing - Technical - Again, I'd look for more rich color.

Opinion - Not one of my favorites. Looks like very little creative effort went into this.

Out fo the Blue

Composition/Content - I appreciate the composition of this image, and I agree with others about the distractions in the lower corners. I like the presence of the flower's shadow on the blue background. I like the angle in which the flower is positioned. I feel like its a good rule of thirds application. The green leaves nicely accents the two main colors.

Background - I very much like the diverse exposure, focus, shades and textures of the blue background.

Camera Work - Technical - I don't know what I'd do differently so I won't comment on this.

Digital Processing - Technical - I assume you deepened the saturation of the blue. I would've done the same. I like the choices of brightness and contrast.

Opinion - The image clearly meets the challenge, and can hold its own even if it weren't submitted to a themed challenge. I enjoy the white vs. dark blue contrast.

Composition/Content - To me, the background is what sells this image, and what makes it worthy of the blue challenge. I think the composition is perfect as it is. Another image, from a different perspective could have been good too, but I would not flaw this image on compositional perspective. I also like the evolving shads of blue in the sky. My eye is drawn to the sky first, then the tree on the left, then the details in the middle ground, then the foreground.

Background - Again, the background makes this iamge what it is. Nuf said.

Camera Work - Technical - I disagree with the comment that the foreground needed to be brighter. As photographers we are all faced with the reality that some parts of our image will be in brighter light than others. We have to figure out the right balance for each image. In my opinion, you have done just fine with that. The tree on the left could quite possibly be sharpened, but I don't think this detracts from the image.

Digital Processing - Again, perhaps a little additional sharpness; perhaps not.

Opinion - I like it more as I look at it more. Now I noticed the pieces of mountain and valley bathed in sunlight. The photo has alot going for it. Congratulations.
