surely my praise is a repeat but i could not resist to let u know this is such a touching image/makes me wish i had a intense picture from my childhood like this / how times are a changing / think i owe about 8 photographs from my first year untill my 10th / who knows maybe the good thing about it is that it left me with this passion for photography

I love it when children get that instinct urging them to toutch floating bubbles. The expression is breathless bursting the physical and emotional toutch challenge at both ends. Reflecting light on the bubbles is the second visual to grasp my attention. It helps that the direction the girl is looking at points the fingers and bubbles toutching. The few points removed are due to the weak image quality otherwise I would have scored a ten. Great photo.

I don't normally rate photos of kids (or the family dog) very high, usually they seem like a doting parent and not actually a effort at improving photography skills. This photo captures the moment of wonder and explorative touch. Although the theme is touch you didn't just focus in on "touching" to show it. It's her face, the fingers and bubbles are secondary and only reinforce the message. The bubble in front of her face adds depth. The movement of the bubbles coming towards her caused a slight blur that I don't feel take away for the image at all. The subject face if beautifully focused and is what makes you "feel touch"
Great interpretation of the challenge.

my highest rated photo for the challenge, but a bit too "neat imaged"

Neat Image strikes again!
I'm sorry, I usually try not to comment on a photographer's processing choices as this is obviously the way you wanted it to look. Who am I to tell you that it's wrong. But darn it, this is a really beautiful image and I think the 'too-smooth' effect detracts from the photo. A little grain would make this good image great by adding that extra touch of realisim.

One of my favorites and top picks. I thought to do the bubble thing but I could not think where to find a child model. I love the expression on the face. I am sure some may find discrepancies. But I say"Good job!"

Great concept for this challenge. The bubbles were an excellent way of conveying touch to the viewer !

Wonderful photo. I love the way you captured her facial expressions as she reaches out to touch the bubbles. Her eyes make the picture.

Yep, that's touch. Little, wet bubbles and a childs fascination with them. Nice capture of the moment. Great focus on the eyes, facial features and some of the bubbles. Hand appears a little soft (maybe was moving?), but overall, it really works. Congratulations and good luck with the image.
