Not staged - found. Did you notice the photographer on the right? Girl with balloons is a graduated. ( I know because after stalking them for awhile I saw her put on a cap and gown for more pictures. Aren't I brilliant at my deductive powers?? :)

I loved the dark vs light in the shot. The whole banner on the mural reads:"james, is that you I smell?" Because it is right next to the james river in richmond.

Thanks for the wonderful comments!!

Congratulations on the top ten, Wendy - I love that this is truly a candid but has the look of a well staged art shot. Excellent tonal range.

congrats wendy, it's not an easy image to work with when there's this much contrast but you've pulled out the shadows perfectly.

Gorgeous. The lighting on the left wall is bad, but there isn't much you can do with it. Looks a bit staged too, but it's a nice scene.

Hard to take your eyes away! 10, but wish I could give it 11...

Coming back to this... it's kind of an Alice in Wonderland kind of feel. Congrats!

Outstanding. Everything about this image is terrific, the light and shadow, the composition and the mood. Very well done!

The lighting is really cool. Neat reflections.

The scene is good, but the exposure causes the eye to be drawn to the brightly lit wall so the girl and her balloons became lost.
