"Challenge" was the word for it alright! A 5-year-old with an attention span measured in milliseconds, combined with lack of a wide angle lens, a very challenging setup to light, and -20 dec C temperatures preventing outdoor shooting, made this photo hell to capture. This crop was best I could come up with, out of dozens of shots taken over two days. But, It Was a Learning Experience.

Nice photo. I would have liked to have seen the boy's face in focus and the soldiers out of focus.

Nice idea, but next time try focusing on the little boy's eyes. He is the most important part of the picture, not the toys.

Great idea. Good depth of field. Lovely capture of child's face. Well done.

good idea, think that you may have been able to covey this better with a tighter crop and better focus on the subject (the boy) and less on the toy characters.

Great shot, great concept, well executed... and the boy's look is perfect.

Interesting idea...I like the expression of wonder on the child.

I love this shot. It makes me wish I was a kid again. I'm not sure but it might have been a bit better if you had cropped it a bit more horizontally. It seems a little too busy around the edges. Good job.

I think the image would be more effective and have greater impact for me with the focus being on the boys eyes and not on the figurines. Plus, I would also like for him to be looking at one of the toys and not directly at the camera. Very good concept though.

Cute. Maybe explore other executions of this idea.

he has an interesting point of view

good idea. could you get boy in focus?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/14/2004 07:12:40 PM
Nice idea. Just a little out of focus.

Really nice idea, and good photo, although it seems a little soft. A light USM could help possibly.

I like the framing of the child's face - don't like the sword going across his mouth. The title adds to the pov theme.

Great idea. I think it might have been a little nicer if you'd got the focus on the boy rather than the figurines.

Very cute concept here. I just think the focus on the boy is a bit to soft. 5

Simple yet clever idea. Might have looked better if both figures were to the side of the image, and the young fellow was facing the camera but with eyes fixed to the side focusing on the figures rather than having them directly looking into the lens. Good luck!
