It's a photo that satisfies in many ways, at many scales. As a thumbprint, the beautiful color palette of white, charcoal and pink and the powerful use of space makes the photo compelling. At a larger scale, the details in the umbrella and the figure add interest. And at this scale we see some of the child's features and realize he is wearing goggles on his forhead. The sense of whimsey adds a humorous touch and a bit of pathos. It's really an unusual sort of photo - beautiful, quirky and compelling. Very nice.

This is so neat! I love the contrast of the umbrella against the white and also the shadows. It really emphasizes the umbrella.

great colours

a solid white shirt on the kid would make this shot perfect, then again an all white shirt may just look like the highlights are blown out. so just keep doing what your doing. = )

Clean and interesting shot.

Very appealing composition. I like that the boy's almost silhouetted against the color, and I like the simplicity and uncluttered nature of this. 7

This is awesome! What a perfect shot! Great print material! I wouldn't be surprised to see this one with a ribbon on Wednesday, and I'd be delighted. Good luck. 10+

how did you get the background to be totally white? Love the feel of the photo. - 10

This works. Love the pink.

I like the different approach this photo takes. The virtual single saturations of the blue and pinkish red of the parasol is very effective. Great one. 8

Goes to my favs !

Neat! I love the colors. Such a pretty soft pink in a boy's world. The white background almost looks cloned or painted in. Good use of the challenge.

A clear 10. fantastic, have added to my favorites. Good Luck!
07/06/2005 12:56:09 AM
excellent. I think this will place high.
07/06/2005 12:43:26 AM
i pretty much like the use of only 3 colors in the photo. white as e base, black 4 e shadows n the bright pink to call 4 attention to the circle.. nice.. but wld hv been better if the excess white has been better crop out of the picture..
