Yeah thanks for the critique Sid. I really wasn't very happy with this picture to be honest. But I was just running out of time, and I made a commitment to myself to enter at least something for one of these open challenges per week.

Also, thanks for the ideas for possibly improving this piece. I'll have to give them a try.

*Hello from Sid and the Critique Club*

An appealing short of shot that meets the challenge well.

It always has an appeal to see a young child’s hands especially against the adults as you have here. The child’s hand feels the softer of the two, I am, of course talking about focus, I feel that it should be the other way around, ideally with a shallower DOF if possible that isolates the child’s hand from the adults. The pale patches of the adult hand are not adding appeal to the shot they are in fact quite distracting from the child's hand.

With the distracting colours of the clothing I think this is one that may have worked better in mono, it could be worth having a look? Also a crop to exclude most of the lower half up to a point near the fingers of the child's hand would probably improve it too.

Thank you for your submission, I'm sorry you didn't get any comments during the challenge, I hope this makes up for it, Sid
