Good job on this. I love the splash of red and what did you do to make the keys look like that? 7.

Nice interpretation of the theme. The contrast works for me but I'm sure you're getting hammered for it.

The keys in this photo look kind of strange. They almost look like they's been scanned. I'm not in any way saying they were...just saying that they have a different look to them. I wonder why the "your" didn't turn out as clear as the rest of it. I like the idea a lot. Very original and creative. The angle is good and I like how it fills the frame. placement of the keys is great. Great depiction of childhood. Good luck in the challenge.

Though I am certain the very high contrast is intentional, I am not keen on it, but I like the contents and composition of keys, white space and angle of text.

I like the contrast of the black on the white and the red string. The scrawl is typical child. Charmng shot. (6) ~mcmurma

Great concept and composition... The contrast/darkness of the keys didn't work for me... But that's just me...

To much contrast I think good idie

Very interesting shot, and perspective. At first glance, I thought this more representative of "teenage hood" than "childhood", but have since changed my mind. The composition and lighting are terrific, and the red of the silk cord on the keys is perfect for the photo. This is one of those photos that, the more I come back to it, the more I like it. Very nice work. lhall
