SO totally cracked me up. Giant M&Ms will do that to me. That and kids with their fingers in their noses while standing in front of/underneath giant M&Ms. And not just any giant M&M - an ORANGE one. And when you get right down to it, it's just an M. Not an M&M. Poor guy. (OK, so NOW I finally read your title. Heh. I'm slow.)

I laughed like hell when I saw this. I like the skin tone on the people.

nice photo, though there is alot of elemants in the photo but there is harmony between shapes that made it nice.

the giant M&M is just a catastrophic distraction. If the kid picking his nose is the subject let him be the subject. A very loose connection between some giant M&M behind him and the word 'manner' doesn't do anything for me.

I gave this a 4. Why?

I almost passed by without comment but realized this should score higher and fails to please for one reason in particular. The colors feel washed out. Like looking at a 70's print.

Just a little "hue/saturation" could really enhance this. I increased overall saturation. But especially yellow (to make the grass greener, yes you would think green would do it but yellow often works better). And red. I also hue shifted the red a bit to get a much more truer red.

It helps Mr. M stand out ;)

Made me laugh out loud. Perfect title. 6 for the shot, plus an extra 1 for the title, for a 7 from me.
