Thanks for all the great comments guys. I was actually hoping that this would do at least Top 5, but I guess I will have to wait.

For those that wondered this is actually a candid and not a stage shoot. I was walking around a Colonial re-enactment and just happened to see this little kid playing in the water. Luckily I had my camera ready and got off a few shots.

Stunning image. Love the stop motion. The tones are great. The kid's outfit is perfect for the time line. Great light reflection in the water. 9

4 - (up from 3), This photo in a time capsule to depict the era for future generations would do well, but in my opinion, just the year was needed (and asked for). I think you have done well with the 'outfit', the pose is great and carefree, the water looks good, I like the frame, etc Maybe, sepia, but I like the colors too. Could be Huck Finn. Good feel, but for me, just the title - just my opinion and interpretation of the Challenge. 7 maybe 8 with the 'year only'.

Really beautifully executed shot. Not crazy about the title, as the location really isn't important (IMHO), but no points off from me.

Simple graphic shot which has been perfectly executed. Great idea too.

Nice period looking piece. Good colours while still feeling like an old time photo. Curious what steps you used to process this photo.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

As beautiful as this photo is, I think it might have worked better as a black and white, with a little bit of grain in it, for this contest. Still, I love it! Great job!

Good shot. I would have liked to see the model's face, though. Maybe see the joy of splashing around in the water.

WOW!!!!! Just awesome!!!!!!! This is gorgeous, well done!!!! I would LOVE a print of this lovely picture!

Nice Hat. Composition is strong - especially the use of negative space. I like the choice to go with color even thought the temptation would be sepia. Curious about the reason for not using a blur layer to make the highlights glow a little (or is this just and overused cliche?)

This is probably the blue. . . I would put money on atleast one of the ribbons for this entry. Very nice.

Nice, could be a hobbit though? ;)

Very nice!! The light reflection on the water is a little distracting but the boy being in time period costume does it for me. Would like to have seen some of his face though.
