Post Challenge
*****************
Just wanted to say thanks for all the comments and the favorites. Two more comments and it would've been the highest I'd ever gotten during a challenge. :-)

You wouldn't believe how many different versions of this shot I had done, well some of you might. ;-) In the end I was happy with my decision. The face was very shadowed so I had to do quite a bit of work to it which is why it looks so different from his legs and arms. And the umbrella gave it a slightly blue cast. And looking at it now I maybe could have desat'ed the greens a tad. But overall, very happy. Thanks again everyone. And thanks to my helpful friend with the ever encouraging support and advice! ;-)

I love the angle on this. You have done an excellent job on this all the way around. Don't beat yourself up about the green I think it looks wonderful.

Great finish and score :) Great choice to keep the reflection in the frame. This is one of my favourites that you've taken.

Outstanding! A little dark on the face, but otherwise terrific and a top contender I think.

beautifully rendered. I think the slight blur works here. colors seem slightly oversaturated. 9

Wonderfully emotive shot. Well executed.

too much burnign IMHO. the kids right leg is oversaturated and so are his arms compared to the rest of his body... the tilt of the camera adds a fanciful respite from the usual straight on images... a fun shot overall... 7

Nice vibrant colors and I think the angle works. Something about the processing around the child's face is a distraction though.

Good contrast, strong composition, colour, exposure. I like it, but couldn't go overboard about it. Solid work.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/17/2005 12:16:43 PM
very cute! contrast seems a little too harsh-can't believe I am saying that because all of MY pictures are like that! I like the bright colors, but because of the contrast his legs and arms look too dark.

Excellent photo, IMO it would benefit from cropping out a bit of the foreground.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/17/2005 08:43:49 AM
that kid should have some shoes on, he may stand in something nasty :-)

I like the silhoutte reflection in the water.

A good one, good colors
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Very nice colour & composition. I think this shot would be improved if it were taken from a lower angle, and the green desaturated a bit. Nice shot!

A tad on the dark side. I would have liked to see more of the little guys face. 7

I wish his face were more in focus and not so shadowed.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/15/2005 02:48:25 AM
I really like the position of the umbrella in the frame...reminds me of how kids always draw the sun in the corner....great work.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/15/2005 01:34:13 AM
Love the diffused light. The blue of the umbrella is great here. I like his movement. Maybe dest the green just a touch. Well done.

Very nice composition. Colors seem a little oversaturated perhaps. Definately meets challenge.
