It is interesting how her little face and eyes in this shot come thru bigger than life. Excellent emotive capture. The body language is definitely saying "Go away, and leave me alone."

Kinda funny, I actually have this selected as a favorite two times. This one is my favorite of the two. The skin tones are a little fuller and the overall shot is a little richer in this one. Still one of my all time favorite shots here on DPC.

Wonderful image. Her expression is priceless. Adding to favorites.

One of my favorites. You placed well in the sea of so many great entries. Though I would've liked it to have placed higher. I'm with everyone here where I say the little girl's pose and especially expression makes this shot speak so loudly. The rest of the shot looks good as well.

The expression on the girl's face helps bring a sort of mellow sorrow for the entire picture.

Very nice pose. Interesting composition with the diagonal lines, and the vast darkness behind her. Good lighting.

Wow! What a cute shot! Great b/w.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/23/2007 10:43:11 PM
there's a tension here between what we expect her to be feeling and what we suspect she really is feeling, especially after reading your title. I'd prefer it without the title, having the tension be more mysterious. Excellent use of space and depth. receding space goes black, middle space has an Escher-like illusion of flatness. A fascinating and compelling image. 9

Great shot, but the backround does not do the overall composition any justice.

The unmistakable sign of crossing one's arms over chest means: do not approach! What a cutie! You did well with the b/w rendering..

Poor girl looks like she is cold and unhappy. The photo is good in a disturbing kind of way.

She's sooo cute. What a little doll! The contrast is excellent. I love the setting...makes you wonder where she is... is that her house...etc. Wonderful.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/12/2007 01:25:59 PM
Best: Looks like a mini-adult in the truth behind the expression. Composition is so "snapshott-ish", but somehow conveys reality and blunt examination. Shadow in upper left
Worst: slightly tighter crop on right

Unwilling yes, cute yes... good composition and focus.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

This is spectacular. I remember her. Such a wonderful face for such a small child. More than cutesy. Intricate and wise like an old soul. Brilliant. 9
