nice composition :) I think that the only way this shot could be improved from a compositional standpoint would be to have photographed this from an upward angle rather than a downward angle. It would improve the image by creating a view from the eyes of the child :) - good shot... - jmsetzler

Wow! We didn't have any cool dinosaur springy rides. We only had a duck wearing a saddle. The funniest thing ever! I love the color on this. I have heard that purple is hard to capture with a digital camera, but I don't see anything wrong here! Lighting and angle are great. I wonder if you could have backed up the photo just a tad bit to get the rest of him in the photo, but it looks lke you cropped it that way to keep other stuff out of the photo. The reason I think that is because it looks like there is something peeking out in the upper left corner. Great job and good luck in the challenge.

This ain't no Barney! Wood chips almost look like gravel. I think if you turned up the color a bit, esp. the red, a touch of yellow and magenta, wow, it looks so much better. (I tried it, I know) 7 Swash

I like the boldness of this shot a lot, but I do wish it wasn't cropped quite so tightly. The head being cropped leaves me wanting for a bit more.

I like the composition of this. I'm sure a lot of people will complain about the nose being cut off, but to me the focus of the photo is the space where a child would be, and if there was a child sitting there, it would be perfectly framed. Interesting technique, using negative space as a subject :)

Too much "looking down" thing. If you get at eye level, then you'd have a better pic.

Cropped too tight for my tast... Nose and tail got chopped off...

Nice close crop and unusual perspective.
And I love purple. :)
Also nice background.

I think this would be better if the front of his head wasnt cropped out. 4.

Nice shot; too bad the dinosaur's nose is cut off the photo.

I find this too tightly framed. You really needed to get in the whole face.

Purple dino, eh? ... this one is cropped a little too tight. Would be better if the dino went right to the edge of the frame, but was not cut off. The lighting seems a little flat (cloudy day?)...color might be a bit more interesting with some sun or shadows. 6.

I like the use of color here -- is the focal point the eye? I might like this more if the dinosaur were shot from a different angle (but realize that background elements might prevent this).

I like the contrast in color and testure here

Great shot, I think that you should have backed away just a tad bit more to get the rest of his head in there.

Nice, sharp, clear, colorful. Quality technical arangement and innovative crop although I think you are going to get a lot of comments wanting the nose and tail included. I think it is cropped perfectly to represent the memory of childhood as "not quite total recall." This should do really well this week........syamjonimi =9 ;'-D

Barney attempting to be taken seriously as an actor? One of the better playground shots.
