I have to say I don't care for the selective desaturation...the image is much more lovely without it.The light and moment you've caught are really nice as is the B&W conversion,so kudos to you on those points.

A sharper shoe would definitely help ;-)

Voted earlier coming back to comment.

Wonderful shot of this little boy playing and the city in the backdrop. I have to say that the concept of cutting corners as a 'you're doing it wrong' example does not come off strongly for me because it competes with the overwhelming sense/observation of a little boy at play. Had you chosen an office setting with a guy in a suit doing something that captured 'cutting corners' as a bad thing that could get him fired that would have perhaps come off more strongly to match the spirit of the challenge. I feel that this picture would do far better in a Children or Playtime Challenge because that is this picture's strength.

Nice image. I remember me sliding down once on something like this, so this kid is doing the wrong thing!

I'm having a hard time finding something wrong with this photo. Looks like a kid having fun, which is very right.

At first, this seemed to be such an incredible reach. It had DNMC written all over it! DNMC DNMC DNMC!

But actually, I like it. I like the idea. And it works for me. I like the soft desat. That being said, his left hand ended up being very strangely dark grey (which isn't that big of a deal), and I think I would have liked a different angle. It's nicely done and processed, but as it is, I think it's a 6.
