Yeah That's about how it is. I have six kids so this looks tame. 8~D

A great candid and perfectly executed... it's as if she knows exactly why you're taking her pic... Very well done... :) Back for a bump up.

A picture is worth a thousand words - so true. Technically the image could be a hair sharper but this captures the essence of this challenge. Well done.

A very true depiction and junior takes the cake with that posture. Bumping up.

Terrific candid photograph. It captures the nice mixture of frustration and determination (or is that resignation?) that goes along with modern motherhood. Her wry expression makes this work so well. Of course, your alertness and photographic skills helped a bit, too! 7.

Any photo that makes me laugh out loud gets a top ranking from me. This is just so true, the characters are SO expressive, it's just top notch. My only question is if the sepia actually adds anything to the picture... it might look better as a pure B&W or in color.

I think someone stole my son and put him in your picture. :) Great job!

awesome. Is she smiling through it all?
  Photographer found comment helpful.

This is all too fammiliar. What a great candid shot and I think that the sepia tones work here.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/05/2006 07:33:35 PM
yup... that's what it's like... even tougher with 3. This is actually very humorous to me.

Oh! I've been there, love the sepia tone..
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Love it! This is such a good idea to capture the everyday moments of us mother's, this is a great shot, well done.

Composition is ok. The choice of subject matter is ok. Nice image quality. Has potential of being really creative. - 5

If this doesn't truly capture motherhood I don't know what does.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/03/2006 08:46:54 PM
Wow this is an excellent shot! Really one of the most realistic shots I have seen. Great coloring.

01/03/2006 07:23:38 PM
perfect portrayal of frustration 7

Captures another side of mother/motherhood in that it's not all about loving, tender moments. The little kid on the front of the pram is a gem. Very well done.

Love this one, Fantastic capture of REAL life!! The only thing missing is the backpack. Love her expression and how she is moving into the picture, really adds some strength with the sepia tones. Nicely done.

Aw, this would have scored very high if it were sharper. I still like it enough to give it a 6. That kid in the stroller is priceless and this looks like quintessential "motherhood". I like the sepia too. Maybe a slightly more centered crop...

She looks happy, but worn out. I like this one. :)

Life can be a struggle, but a Mother's love is endless......Good image.

This is kinda what I had in mind for the challenge. Maybe I just relate to it.

Wow, is amazing everything a mother does...
Nice composition.

Great candid! I like the blur and duotone. Nicely done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/02/2006 10:20:10 PM
awesome candid, love the color and focus - neat image? - it has the softness and clarity right where you need it - I really wish I knew how to do this - nice work :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/02/2006 10:12:28 PM
It is a nice candid, but the fact that it is OOF really makes it lose impact.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/02/2006 09:45:43 PM
very sweet!

cute photo - 7
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/02/2006 05:45:38 PM
best shot so far. I love the sponteneity fo the shot that really shows what mums of today have to juggle. the little boy in the front...his pose is priceless! Perhaps a good ides would be to straighten up the picture a little, the background looks off line to me. Nice DOF.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/02/2006 04:37:13 PM
good capture ... mother looks like she has reached the end of her rope.
Like the duotone
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/02/2006 01:24:11 PM
haha I just loved the little kid 'about to jump out'. Great tonality, mom's facial expression is not the best IMO

I like this. It's artsy and urban. k Good filter too. Nice stop action. 8

I know it's a candid, but I think I'd like it better if the mother's face was in focus. The focus on the boy is sharp, and he's cute, but with the subject of 'motherhood' I think focus on the mom would have been preferable. (I totally remember those days.)

Struggle Struggle....Toil and Trouble. LOL Boy I remember those days!!
