I like the perspective on the little boy. Too much of the sky seems overexposed though.

8 - Like the focal point. Nice simple clothing which works well with the tones. Difficult, but just a litle more 'pop'/detail on the kite and possibly (depending what you had to work with of course), a fraction more room at the top of the frame, especially so the top of the child's hair wasn't cropped - but fairly minor.

The subject matter fits this image very well. I suggest you try a square crop, as it would eliminate some of the negative space and the very tall, out-of-focus, piece of grass on the left without loosing any of the perspective or charm of the image. 6

Awesome photo! The perspective is perfect and I think you totally nailed the DOF on this one. The out-of-focus grass in the foreground actually works for the image and the composition of the shot is awesome. I think I may have panned slightly up though so the top of the frame wasn't so close to the boy's head. Great job though! :)

Nice depth of field and a great presentation of this classic subject. Photographing kites and people is not quite as easy as some might suppose. The monochrome? makes the photo stand out. 9.

Do you have that pic in color?

I like the idea of this. Has a timeless feel to it. You could have cropped out the left third of the shot and made it more in portrait orientation, and it would have been just as effective. I know the grasses indicate that the camera is on the ground, but there are enough of them on the right to work, without those distracting ones on the left side.

This is a great idea! Very effective :)

These needs a little more head room for me.
