Childhood is all about being proud of something you made or did. Great depiction of that. The sky is beautiful for this photo and kite is very colorful. The angle is great. I like how the entire kite is in the photo including the tails. Great job and good luck in the challenge.

great shot .. I guess you could not avoid the clouds behind the tail o the kite and it was probably a difficult shot ... great picture ! 8 Lionel

Good compositon, detail in the sky.... I never knew the paper plate kites would actually fly! I think, if possible, I would have loved to see more of the string - the kite further out..

Wonderful content and composition. Only minor point is that, because sun is behind, face of plate kite isn't as well lit.
Wonderful clouds and the light through the ribbon tails is great.

This is a very beautiful depiction of childhood - the coarse charm of the kite, the excitement of having it fly, the feeling of wonder and possibility... I love it :). 10 - lisae

Sums up childhood perfectly, great title, great picture.

Lovely sky and nice placement of the plate thing against it. But I can't get past the fact that I dont think this thing would actually fly. Great shot, though. 8 - floyd

Very nice. Simple, pretty decent use of available space. Nice depth and great color. Boring? Maybe...but nice anyhow.

I love the intensity of the streamer colors against the sky. Very strong on topic...great job! Lisa

Beautifully done! Elicits emotion. I'm jealous of your creativity! :-)

The interplay between the kite and clouds is great. Did you try it showing more string so that it doesn't look like the kite is being pulled out of the frame? karmat

I liked it!!
Personally, I think this would be a better picture if the kite were near the lower-right corner.

All I can think of to say is... "10"
08/28/2002 12:28:00 AM
great concept and composition
08/27/2002 08:47:00 PM
Great shot, and rather amazing that it actually flies!

Fun Image

Very cute. I like it.
08/27/2002 05:33:00 AM
Wonderful ! I love the very simplicity of it, and the fact that the entire background is sky. Also that the kite is obviously homemade by a real kid ! Nice work. lhall

This is a really good photo. I like the colors of the kite with the light blue background and the clouds make it seem like its soaring so high in the sky. 8.
08/26/2002 08:21:00 PM
this picture really relaxes me...
08/26/2002 07:41:00 PM
great kite, great shot. the clouds in the background really make for a nice composition too. (7) ~mcmurma

Makes me think of all the times I'd go tearing down the yard in an attempt to get one of those kites airborne. The different colors in the streamers really heightens the feel of the wind. Nice work.

Self made Kite, nice crisp air at background.
08/26/2002 05:08:00 PM
Beautiful sky, very nice colors in the streamers, and the classic home made kite-thing we've all seen. This definitely meets the challenge. I love the yarn!
08/26/2002 02:27:00 PM
Excellent job, one of my top 5 of the week. The sky is awesome and the idea is great.
08/26/2002 01:48:00 PM
Great concept and shot. Colors of artwork balance gerat with the sky and clouds.
08/26/2002 11:21:00 AM
Very nice, love the colors. Score 6 Kee
