Some very light burning around the edges, unsharp mask and a frame are all I added to this image. The younger girl on the right is in fact missing part of her left arm.

Thank you to everyone who took the time to vote and especially comment. Submissions I have seen from past challanges have been very creative, and I've seen some photographers who shoot a particular style and find ways to alter it only enough to be applicable to a given challenge. I like shooting people, and kids are the wildest people I know. I understand the low marks, but had fun taking the picture and always enjoy participating in challenges. Thanks again for the feedback!

Cute idea, but I think they're domesticated?
10/10/2004 09:21:06 PM
they look wild !
10/09/2004 02:31:36 PM
Maybe they get wild as most children do but I don't think people meet the challenge 2

The photo itself is very well done, but seeing the tile, I still don't think it fits the challenge. "For the purpose of this challenge, "wildlife" should be considered non-domesticated mammals, birds, reptiles and amphibians living in a natural environment." This is a guality photo for candid or family, but I don't think this would do well in this challenge.

Cute shot; very good technically, though I think the composition is too tight on the top, and the shadow figure upper left is distracting enough that I would have cloned it out. These comments notwithstanding, I don't see this meeting the challenge.

They are certainly mammals :) I'm sure your getting hammered because of the "non-domesticated" part, but I have daughters so I know where you're coming from :) The head in the background is a little bit of a distraction, as are the windows... Keep your chin up, this is going to be a long week for you full of low scores and hate-comments from folks that have no sense of humor or hate kids... Pay them no mind... It's a nice shot and a interesting slant on the challenge. If my membership becomes active before the voting ends, I'll give you extra credit for courage :)

The challenge was very specific about what was considered wildlife. This wasn't one of the choices.

This is afun picture. Great expressions, colors are well done, and the DOF is well chosen. But the realtionship to the challenge is little tenuous.

mine are wild, too, but i thought better of trying to enter them in this challenge...
10/05/2004 07:20:40 AM
Wild yes but surely you knew this would get "doesn't fit the challenge" comments? 6 - floyd
10/04/2004 02:54:38 PM
Non-domesticated mammels? Doesn't meet challenge. Nice picture though!
10/04/2004 01:56:31 PM
Sorry I don't think so. They are precious and adorable, and no doubt rambunctious. But not wild.
10/04/2004 01:28:28 PM
Cute girls. Interesting take on the challenge.

Great kids shot...truly. I understand what you were going for here...its a clever play. But sorry...this isnt wildlife. Best of luck.

I believe they are domesticated, though, according to the challenge description :)
10/04/2004 12:49:56 AM
Aren't humans domesticated? They look like a handful but this really pushes the scope of the challenge.
