My first challenge entry! I see where this can become addicting.

This was a guest at my sons' birthday party this past weekend. Not much post-processing -- sharpen, contrast, channel-mixer layer.

Greetings from The Critique Club

Welcome to DPC too!

First you should know that comments made during challenges can be painfully honest. Know that most people are trying to be helpful, some are just a little more graceful with their words.

Technically this picture is ok. Lighting is a bit harsh on the face
and the red of the ?slide?. The color is bright and the skin tones look okay,

You have met the Rule of Thirds well.

The subject does not keep my interest, but for your first challenge you have done well.

My advice is to keep shooting, and entering challenges. It is hard in the beginning, comments may be left that seem harsh but read through the lines and you will see that most people here have thier hearts in the right place.

I like the expression that you caught here. Overall it is just laking more interest for the voters here a DPC. It is technically a perfect shot but boring (not to be rude). You did a wonderful job with the shot and the post processing. Keep shooting!!!!
