Took this quick shot while lying on my back looking up at these sunflowers. It's a view that a small child might see while looking up at the world.

January 13, 2003: Aaaak - I'm coming back to this photo-my first challenge submission, and I think "eeeeeyuck!"-did I really take that? The thing I don't like the most about this photo is the awful bright lighting. I've learned alot about photography since this photo.

To all of those who took the time to add their comments to their voting scores, thank you very much. Considering that I took this shot without any planning, I think I did pretty well. I'm encouraged to continue posting my efforts.

Wonderful picture.... I would have pruned the dead leaf out first and taken out the plant stake. Were we ever that short?

I have to admit, without the title, I would not automatically think "childhood" when I saw this. However, I do understand the reference and am considering this to have "met the challenge". The angle is great for the purpose. Definately has the "through a childs eyes" look to it. The lighting is great and the sky is perfect. Great shot and good luck in the challenge.

I like the different elements, the repetitive patterns of the fence, the organic sunflowers and the blocky modern form of the building. Great viewpoint.

Only one tiny criticism - that dead looking leaf on the left. Other than that I love it. Great light and angle. Colours are good too. A polarising filter might have given you a slightly bluer sky (perhaps not given that you're pointing almost straight up). Excellent work - love it. 9 - floyd

Good image; interesting angle. Nice composition with the fence, flowers and house. Nice colors. This image only speaks of childhood because of the title but what the heck. 8 Journey

good composition..I like the play of lines,softness of the plants and the metal of the fenc.

That would have to be one heck of a short kid...!

I think I see what you were going after, but don't you think you got down a little too low? (seems like crawing height...) I would suggest cropping above the chicken wire fence, too. 7 Swash

Interesting idea. I think the photo may have be more effective with a personinstead of a building, but a good attempt at something other than a teddy-bear or swing shot!

I like the angle of this picture and the colors are really neat too. 7.

Very clever. One feels totally dwarfed by the surroundings.
