Great capture, dof. I dont like the unsymmetric frame, but that is just a detail. 9

very poignant. I don't like the border, as I find it distracting. but the photo itself is very well done.

Everything about this photograph is in the right place. Framing is exceptional, the boy with the ball is just at the right place in the composition. Good choice with blur as a way to isolate the main characters. Great story depicted.

I'm probably alone in this feeling...but I'm thinking the title is not working for this photo. That's funny in itself because normally I don't pay much attention to titles. 'Unfair' suggests a more negative storyline, but I really see a much more positive and upbeat one. Yes he's in the chair, but I'm seeing him hanging with his friends having a good time and definitely not letting a disability ruin his life. Maybe I'm being too sunny, I don't know. Oh, did I mention...very good photograph!

the thick border really takes away from the picture, which is a shame becasue this is a great shot

This is a WOW photo, congrats! So much emotion. Not crazy about the wide border at the top and bottom, but the photo's a 10. Good luck.

Very emotive and touches the heart the moment you see this image. The kid carrying the football nails the punch in you image. Nice DOF too. Excellent work. Wat else but a 10

The composition is perfect with the boy walking toward the other two as a "balance." I like the frame as well.

wow what a story behind this image, not sure about the top and bottom borders but it kind of grows on ya. My eye isn't comfortable with the depth of field. The boy holding the ball seems to be nice and sharp yet there are people to the left that are blurred and they seem to be the same distance as him.
