Hello from the Critique Club!

The first thing I noticed was the two large white bands. They really steal the impact of this shot by drawing your attention away from the boy. I believe this was the fatal flaw to this photo and the reason it scored so low. Cropping the white out would have helped the composition of this shot a lot.

You had great timing on capturing this shot. You were able to capture this before he realized that he was staring at a camera and a look of surprise took over. I can just imagine that half a second later, he was gone!

I see from your profile that this is your first entry. Welcome To DPC!!! This is a great site to really learn about photography and watch your own experience grow!

I don't see the lines here

The white border is really distracting, but a cute shot.

this is more like "frame within the frame" approach. but the shot is very nice.

I don't get the feeling of leading lines here. The subject is great. I actually like the photo, especailly the focus and colors. The broad white borders top and bottom don't really add.

This is more for framed than leading lines.
