Greetings from the Critique Club!

What a fun image! Feels like I'm right there with the boys watching them zoom past downhill! I like the emphasis on the red car. The expression on the pusher carries me into the moment...the near-concetration on the driver seems just real. Sure, you could want more expression from the driver if this were staged or you were making a movie but I don't feel that life needs to be artificially dramatized all the time.

Because of your notes I guess that you dimmed down the elements outside of the buggy. This, to me, is effective with the exception that some of the life has been lost from the boys' skin tones. I'd probably choose to pull that desaturation back a bit if I were editing. Otherwise there's nothing I want to quibble with. I see a beautiful slice of time captured by skillful panning which takes me back to the soap-box derby days of my childhood.

Sweet! Thank you for sharing this honest picture worth the time to enjoy!

Good shot, Ilove how everything is kind of color-less except for the bright car. :)
