Well, I am not going to turn down the blue, even if it was by default. However, I think I will strive to earn one before disqualifications :) Thanks to everyone for all the nice comments here. I really appreciate it.

Woo Hoo!
Made it to the top - Congrats! Though not the way you would have wanted it, but a Blue is still a Blue!

Congrats on the ribbon... This was one of my favs... No offense but I still think that the girls pictures towards the right while missing the bricks would have been nicer.

Very cute, made me smile. Definitely nailed the challenge :) I can just imagine what they're saying - good job!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/21/2005 08:35:11 PM
I wonder what they are talking about. Good work. One of my favs. in this challenge.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/21/2005 06:38:37 PM
Brilliant - of all the photos I have seen this one captures the "essence of the moment" between two friends - the expressions on the girls' faces is delightful. Great use of fill-in flash, good composition. Try to see what a close crop just on the faces will look like!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/21/2005 02:24:27 PM
I like this photo. Subjects are well lit and soft background does not distract from photo.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/21/2005 08:10:08 AM
nice use of b&w. the two different charakters of the girls are interesting
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/21/2005 01:36:00 AM
This is a cute picture, but the composition feels better suited for a family album than a photographic competition. If I knew these kids I'd love to have this picture on my desk; but since I don't, there's nothing about either the content or technique that jumps out at me or gives the picture any real significance.

hehe cute!

Very cute picture! I like the idea of black and white for this picture. Good job with your placement.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/19/2005 01:54:37 PM
This is just a wonderful photograph. Cant think of anything I would change. The expressions on their faces are brilliant!

Your ability to capture the emotion of friendship almost an anticipation is what makes this one good.

Looks like an interesting conversation going on there. :) Nice shot
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/17/2005 10:02:21 AM
This was taken very nicely, its very sharp! The little girls look so cute. I aslo like the way it was taken in black and white. It looks great!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/17/2005 01:53:21 AM
A lovely shot of the girls... I would have given this a closer crop, rather than putting the tree at centre -- it strikes me as awkward. If you centred the girls, but put the tree at 2/3s...?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/16/2005 11:58:57 PM
Great shot: I love the expressions that you have captured. The whites (shirt, socks and flowers) seem a tad overexposed. Nicely done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/16/2005 11:16:12 PM
so precious. I love it!

This is totally awesome! The perfect lighting on the subjects is amazing. It reminds me of those old-timey greeting cards or posters. I just love it.

Beautiful shot... a little over exposed though. Bricks are distracting.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/16/2005 08:30:00 AM
This is very nicely done! The black and white was the way to shoot this. Good work! Wonderful memories for these Best Friends.
