I like most everything about this photo except the carnations. They seem out of place. I really like the basket and the colors as well as composition and DOF. It has a sort of "dreamy" quality about it. I honestly think a stuffed bunny would have fit the picture better than the red flowers. JMO ;) lhall

Great perspective and colour.
Not keen on background trellis and whatever the metallic items to right of frame are.

I love the soft colors of this photo, and the slight foggy background. This screams childhood to me. Great job 9 BAMartin

Did you try cropping in tighter on the left side to get rid of that distracting blur of overexposed sky? Otherwise a very pleasing picture! sulamk

Nice idea, great color. I think it would be stronger from a different angle though, to eliminate the backround distractions.

I really like the "perception" of this shot. It feels like I'm a toddler...in the world looking out.

I like this one a lot, but I think it could have been composed a little better. The basket and eggs are great though the candy in the grass is hard to make out. The background is what bothers me. The left side seems much fuzzier than the right, and just what is that thing on the right - a house? Just a little improvement and this could be a great pic. Nice idea.

A better title would help. I like the use of distance though. For a good example of a title see "What little girls are made of"

I almost did an easter egg hunt. Glad I didn't, yours is so much better than my idea. I love the colors and the angle. The background adds so much to this also. Very pretty. The upper left of the photo seems to have a hazy kind of look. Otherwise, very nice photo. Great job and good luck in the challenge.

great composition and DOF. The eggs take you through to the trellis.

Soo cool! Off in the distance, it looks like a soft filter, if not, it still seems like a nice effect. Nice arrangement, great color! 10 Swash

Very nice shot. I just recently viewed some family pictures of my younger siblings engaging in this activity. Boy, the memories!

is this one for easter? but anyway nice composition....

The colors are just *perfect*. Easter egg hunting is a terrific childhood theme. Something about the gap of green in the bottom center seems like a hole ... maybe one more egg to balance the picture? Good job, though!

Love the colours and composition...

I dont know if it was intentional or not, but I really like the soft focus in the background.
