This is so cinematic and emotive, I am surprised and please it did so well. Some thing we can all relate to in a very fantasy driven group, this stood out like a true life story should.

Congrats on your ribbon. I was thinking more of grade school/junior high ostracism until I read your description.

One of my top picks in the challenge. Should finish very high... however my only critique is that I would have liked a bit less cropping to get the upper half of the girls head in frame.


Ehhh... just went back and I think that the cropping works. Good job.

Sad picture, but very effective.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/23/2005 03:23:09 AM
this is very well done. Her expression is just wonderful.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/22/2005 08:44:58 PM
I like the concept but not the execution. Quite dark overall. Also the huge border is very annoying to me.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/22/2005 08:30:39 PM
beautiful!

This picture really expresses this girl’s feeling of rejection. Good work!

this is the best photo in the lot. the image is disturbing, as it was surely meant to be and effective. the girls in the BG are blurry enough to be the "faceless mass" but their postures say all that there is to say. the dark and gray tones are perfectly fitting.
This should net you a ribbon, but you'll probably get conspired against :)
Best of luck

09/20/2005 09:59:22 AM
I don't know if this is a conspiracy, per se or just girls being girls.....mean more like it!

Great capture however and it really makes my heart go out to the girl in the foreground. It is a painful experience and you captured it well!

Excellent....

Border's a bit thick, but a good shot nonetheless. I love the emotion and the mood this has.
Good job!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/19/2005 12:09:28 PM
Awww. . . how sad!!!! Unfortunately, that is an all-too-common conspiracy with kids, isn't it! Great portrayal of conspiracy. I really like this a lot.

well heidi is this you? In any case.. whoever this is.. you are able to make magic lighting.... i can't quite put my figure on what it is though... or how it is done.... but makes for very intriguing photos.

I love the post processing and the emotive nature of this image. Well done! :)

Great pic. Way too much border imho 7
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/18/2005 09:04:00 AM
like the emotion and composition -- one of my ribbon picks :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/18/2005 07:23:33 AM
I think you could crop out a little bit of the left side, maybe in the middle of the tree, but I really like this shot. The black border certainly gives it a certain impact to the viewer, but I think it might be a little excessive. I do like the inner border.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/18/2005 05:44:39 AM
Nice DOF and desaturated colours.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/18/2005 02:06:35 AM
remind me a lot of this: //dpchallenge.com/image.php?IMAGE_ID=145061

photographically, I like this one better - the focus is sharper on the foreground, and the color treatment is good - but the title kind of confuses me. the pieces are arranged nicely, but it very much looks staged.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/18/2005 01:19:43 AM
Awww, my first reaction was I feel sorry for the girl in front. A good emotive photo. The border is a bit on the thick side, but I like the composition.

great shot but border overkill...
