you are in the reflection of his eyes.... otherwise i would have to say this especially flawless. 10.

striking. A very beautiful subject

little ice cream here, little ice cream there...beautiful eyes!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/30/2005 05:49:37 PM
A cute expression and bog eyes that say "I can eat much more of these". Interesting tilted composition, it gives you image a childlike dynamism. 10.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/30/2005 02:42:56 PM
Amazing eyes... really lovely. I like how both the eyes, and the ice cream are crisp and focused. Very nice image. :)

the eyes are amazing
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/29/2005 02:21:44 PM
My heart is captured...Now finish that ice cream before it melts!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/29/2005 04:39:07 AM
Wow! A beautiful and touching image. The eyes are amazing, very feline like. The image overall is very well composed, the colours feel well balanced and all blend extremely well. I feel not only is it the photogenic subject that makes this picture but also the little subtle factors. The touches of ice-cream on the nose and around the lips are more realistic to the other entries where the models face is plastered with ice-cream. My very fave for this challenge, all the best :)

Good capture & great expression!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/25/2005 08:02:01 PM
This photograph is good but for this competition this photograph focus's more on the child then the actual ice cream cone.
08/25/2005 04:59:37 PM
that expression is priceless.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/25/2005 01:58:52 PM
I like the feeling captured in this image, as well as the white colour of the eyes and the ice cream.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/25/2005 01:45:16 PM
I love his eyes and the contrast of his skin tone with the ice cream (which is, unfortunately, a little blown on highlights). I would have either wiped the smudges off his nose or gone even more with them, the intent is not clear with this amount. I'm giving you an 7. (PS, is that a hot pixel in the upper right? I'm not holding it against you though...)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/25/2005 01:15:47 PM
Awesome shot. Love the contrast and POV.... .. and those eyes!!!!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/25/2005 10:25:30 AM
I love the beautiful character of the photo. You have captured a great moment in this picture. Reminds me of hot, summer days as I spent as a child... Excellent!

Beautiful
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/24/2005 09:48:55 PM
Great shot - especially the eyes. I see the ice cream as secondary to the child's facial expression. Kudos on a great shot! 9
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/24/2005 09:46:56 PM
Wow - I am just drawn to those eyes, they're amazing. I can't decide whether I like the reflection of the photographer in there or not. Only thing is the dairy theme is very secondary - I eventually notice the ice cream after looking at the eyes for so long!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/24/2005 09:24:15 PM
Great positioning... look at those eyes... good luck!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/24/2005 09:15:58 PM
Probably my fave.

7 - you captured what i find to be a wonderful expression on this childs face.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/24/2005 08:42:03 PM
haha, great, if only your reflection wasn't in it
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/24/2005 06:32:36 PM
This picture is great, and I love how well it conveys the joy of licking an ice cream cone on a hot summer day. An excellent photograph all around! Well done!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/24/2005 05:19:19 PM
She seems to be adoring whoever it is who bought her the ice cream, and the viewpoint makes it seem as though I bought it for her. It makes me happy to think I did something nice for a kid. As for technical aspects of the photo, everything has been done very well. Composition, contrast, detail, focus, interest. It's all there.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/24/2005 01:14:22 PM
Beautiful expression. One of the best in the challenge.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/24/2005 12:28:25 PM
Clearly the winner, 10 in my books... good luck
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/24/2005 09:23:47 AM
Nice angle and sharpness, but could use more depth, and the reflection of the photographer in both eyes is distracting. It feels like the icecream is not central to the photo, but I like the premise.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/24/2005 09:11:40 AM
Exotic. Alien. Strange . compelling.

spank you if this doesn't ribbon. i saw this on csi the other day...they now have software that can isolate the reflection in the eyes and super magnify that to get a second photograph going. hrm...

You have captured the essence of what ice cream is all about with this photo. Great job!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/24/2005 12:56:10 AM
what beautiful eyes
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/24/2005 12:40:53 AM
Darling expression. This is my favorite. His deep skin tones are the perfect contrast to the ice cream and his beautiful eyes!! This is nicely done. Maybe tone down the blown out sense on the white of his collar and shirt, but otherwise - great. You could crop out all but a hint of the cone and the ice cream message would still convey. Cute kid!!!
