This shot was taken on Alcatraz Island in San Fran. I am not sure if this meets the challenge, but I havn't entered in a while so I'll go with it... I had a hard time thinking of a title, so eventually I just made up a name for the little kid. haha. But yes, I had a gay time in SanFran.

A tiny burst of color here, as the little boy seemes to be dewarfed by the structures.....

Very nice. A simple and effective response to the challenge.

Love this pic, the composition is sweet, colors are nice, sharp.
a little constructive comment: would've liked the tower a bit to the left and the little guy a bit to the right.

A nice picture, but seems to be lacking in color for this challenge. Most of the view is gray. If it is the blue jacket (most of the color) then I would recommend he take up more of the frame. If you were trying to contrast the blue sky, it is muted... do you have a circular polarizer? Highly recommended.

Love this shot. Great feel and emotive quality to it. The textures and grey tones you've picked up are so nice. Really like the title too..... 8

You found a great setting. Keeping the boy with his burst of color a small part of the frame really emphasizes meeting the challenge topic. I like it!

i like this image--different and urban. The kid's blue burst truly complements the environment's hues. Great composition

I'd have cropped this to get rid of the water tower and the sky. They overwhelm the little boy, and there's enough blue in the sky that you lose the impact of his bright blue jacket.

This is exactly what the challenge directive spoke of. Love the pop of the blue against all of the neutral and gray tones!!!
