This a picture of my friend's daughter. She just happened to march off just as the ducks turned to go the other way.

I liked her looking so oblivious and self-content. I wanted to get all the ducks in but the fella on the left just went too far - no second chances!

The house looks rather rural. The subject of your photo is a bit unclear (everything is ditracting). Perhaps - no girl - rotate for a straight line on the roof - and the ducks - in colour. Pretty cool the way you captured all the ducks heading in the one direction.

I like the way the child is going in the opposite direction to the ducks I think a quicker shutter speed would have helped

Great photo! Magnificent! I was just about to stop voting for a while, but I'm glad I didn't. I think it's really funny that the ducks are going the opposite way, esp. with the title. It makes me read it in a demanding frustrated childs voice. :) I'm scorin this real high. One of my favorites.

She is so light, she seems almost a ghost! I love the ducks going one way and the girl going another.

I like how the girl is going one way and the ducks the other way (given the Title). Good contrast between her and the rest of the shot. 7.

Here is my 10 for this challenge! I love how they seem to be refusing to "follow her". If I was going to nitpick, I would like the little guy on the left either completely in or out ... of course, then you run into the next one. What to do?
