Isaac and Tyra are more experienced models now. The sun was playing hide-and-seek with some pretty thick clouds, but I feel I got enough contrast to make my point.

I would have loved to put the title in a cartoon-like "word-bubble" -- maybe I'll post that version elsewhere.

I like the message this picture has, and I like the basic idea behind the set-up. The biggest problem I see with it is the hands and the shadow are too far apart, so you loose impact. also, having the hands at the edge of the planter doesn't seem to help.

I don't care for the garden background, but otherwise good.

I love the message in this photo. The flower bed at the top is distracting to me and obscures the hands somewhat.

I really like your concept on this shot... shadows are all the same :) I'm not sure that I like the flower pot as the backdrop in the top of the photo but I do still like the idea... good work! - jmsetzler

Nice idea -- I think I might like the photo better if the flower pot and dirt were not in the background.

I like the composition; especially the space in the middle.

White and black hand with shadows for each - a nice touch.

Great message :-)

Great idea! I think it could be improved by a little more care with background distraction and foreground background distance, but I think this a really good and original subject.

Great idea, but too much dead space in the center of the shot for me

Cute idea, the flower pot is horribly distracting, and the sahdow should be closer to the hands.

The Same as there shadow

nice idea but the background ruins it for me and the entire hand should have made it into the picture. Don't you wish we could have do-overs? I know I do!

I like the idea, but I don't like all of the blank space of the photo -- would be much more effective with a tighter crop.

Great! Good job...

nice statement of society! I may have tried to compose this so that the hand and shadows were a bit more centered in the photo to draw more attention to them. The dominant view is of the pavement. Nice idea and title.

The red object in the background creates a distracting horizontal line.

brilliant shadow idea with a message! - needed stronger shadow and close up. Good attempt

WOW! Billboard Idea
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Wonderful concept, we bleed the same color, too. I usually I like extra "stuff" in the frame that can "add interest", but in this case, I don't think the garden behind the hands work all that well. Photo 9 Creativity 7 Shadows 8 total 8

Fantastic idea...........wow. I like this. Your background is too DARK too see the darker hand on the right, could of been a bit closer to the fingers and centered. Other then that this would of been a winner.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/17/2002 03:09:00 PM
I would have liked this picture better with shadows closer to fingers. Nice idea.

this might be better if the kids's hands were closer to the shadows.

oh god this is the gayest think I ever seen.

good concept!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Great title.. weak picture.. the hands should have been closer to the shadow so the shadow could be darker, bigger, more powerful
  Photographer found comment helpful.

unity

06/17/2002 02:44:00 AM
I like the idea, but would have been much more affected if the hands had been closer to their respective shadows...
  Photographer found comment helpful.

GREAT!

There's more information in this photo than needs to be. Too much background in my opinion. I think this idea would be stronger if the hands and shadow were a bit closer together, vertically, and if shot so only the ground shows as bacground. Change the angle of view essentially.
