I often come back to an image after a challenge and view it completely differently than when bombarded with a zillion shots during voting and commenting. Compositionally, it's busy with all of the faces, but they are all sharp and I like that. Reminds me of when we stuffed 30 people in a 13 capacity elevator when I was in high school! You seem to have power over them, as you're looking down with that perspective. The various poses and hands, hats, glasses, etc. weave an interesting tapestry. It might be fun to play around with extreme contrast, as well as black and white, just to see what else you get.

Great shot, very clever and well done (photographer and models!). As a class portrait, it's perfect, but for "gallery" use it needs a couple more folks to fill in the right and make it evenly packed (or crop in past the two on the right).

cool idea.. i think this works even better if they all stand in a circle! (You try, i'm not in a class anymore! :P)

Interesting location. I like how they all have to squeeze in there. You chose a very interesting POV for your shot. I'd have preferred a B&W version. 7.

Kinda quirky. Different, unique. I rather like it. Quite interesting point of view. Looking at the various looks and gestures, I find it holds my attention quite well actually. Fascinating how the one dark haired girl just to the right of center is the only one not looking up at the camera. I'm not sure how the mainstream voters here will go for it, but, yeah, I really like it. Looks like a really fun shoot. Cool :-)

Lol. Great and unique perspective. You've captured some divers expressions. Good luck on this out of the box study, though it is more of the in the box work. -9-

"R2 - stop the garbage compressors..."
Seriously, this picture captures the mood of these kids well....I wonder if you thought about cropping tightly so you just have a sea of faces?

Ha, this looks like it was fun to put together! I would have darkened it up just a bit, the faces are a little bright and washed out. The competition is pretty steep as well for this challenge, so I'm sure how this will score - but I thought it was creative - and fun!

Good idea, this image would do well blown up. Maybe an acid/funky filter seeing as they/re al teenagers. The oly thing I would say is that there isn't much of a single focal point.

Sort of like the old, "How many college kids can you fit in a VW Bug." Interesting...
