What a great image. I gave this shot a 9 and i'm looking for reasons that it wasn't a 10. Great capture and the selective desat works really well. The childs face is a picture and tells a story. I wonder what he is looking at.
Well done on your blue
great work

Thank you everyone for your wonderful comments, and the ribbon :). I'm delighted!!
This was shot at 300mm on my Sigma 70-300- I was so glad I had a long lens to shoot with, since I felt really concious taking pictures of strangers without asking, and of course I didn't want to ask and spoil it all!

Great contrast of colors -- a ten!

The color contrast is exceptional and the expression on his face is priceless - nice photo

Bumping this up to a 9. The colors are perfect and the desaturation of the rest puts all focus on the subject and the excited expression. Simple, focused and candid. Great!

Very good. The lively colors really make this entry stand out. I would expect it to do very well. An outstanding, natural picture.

It's sure hard to get a good candid shot, but this is great. The background is nicely out of focus, giving emphasis to the boy. The expression on the boy's face is wonderful. The angle of the umbrella adds so much to the composition.

There's a winner! Great shot!

This is like a "Bingo!" picture. Selective desaturation works here because it's natural-feeling.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

One of the few desats that work. Good job! 9

Nice Job!

Excellent job. I wouldn't be nearly as impressed if he didn't have the expression that he has on his face. It seems so easy to win people's hearts over with a cute kid.....but honestly, this is exposed and composed very nicely. Love the colors. Keep up the good work.
