What a fun picture. It would be fun to see something through the windows and the left side is a bit overblown. I love the feet in the picture though.

Excellent - an image that speaks to anyone who has been a parent or a child.

The lighting is a bit harsh and it feels a bit to snapshotish, but I think it would be helped out by cropping out the right side of the pictre (everything right of the feet on the back of the chair)

Alright! This is my favorite in the challenge...we can all relate to this shot at any age...good lighting, positioning of the kids; love the feet up on the seat...very unique view of family life.

how many times have i experienced this.. what a memory awakener. Looking at the pic in more detail makes it a pity that the one kid i can see has a lot of blown-out areas that are somewhat distracting. other than that i really like this candid for it's honesty and true reflection of family life.

I hope you didn't have to listen to "Are we there yet?" too much. I think this is one of the better shots representing 'family' in the challenge. The washed out windows don't even bother me too much as there is enough going on to keep your attention. Nice job! Good luck!

Cute kid (the one who can actually be seen in this shot). The side of his face is quite blown, also the child who's head is cut off by this shot was not a good compositional choice. Cropping to just show the feet and the boy on the left would have worked better imo.

I love the feet!!! That's really a cute shot. Those blue eyes are gorgeous. On 3nd review, I might suggest cropping the sleeping kiddo on the right since you can't see him/her anyway and you wouldn't lose those darling feet. I'm sticking to my 7 vote though.

His eyes are amazing.

sorry but this just has no appeal - no WOW - even the boy on the right looks bored with it
07/11/2005 03:34:58 AM
classic. the feet especially make this photo fun and familiar. too bad she(?) didn't lean the other way for a nap to fill in that empty space in the middle. 9.
