Read the smile on my face oh boy.
This just makes me smile. Thought about how funny it would look with their papers upside down, but with that serious look, it wouldn't have had the impact this does, as it is. Congrats on another make it look so easy ribbon!

I love that song . . . probably my fav. beatles song, def my fav beatles album . . Not a bad shot either. I wanted to comment during challenge but I dont' vote when I enter.

edit: Which BW conversion did you use, and did you dodge/burn or curves, or both? Great contrast, if you wouldn't mind a bit of insight. Again, nice shot, very 'cute.' (No sarcasm)

Your work always seems to amaze me. Every picture you take seems to have a bit of a story to it. You capture the greatest expressions and feelings of people I think on DPC. I love your take on challenges and how you portray people. This is another spectacular shot. The editing is right on, and the title is just right. Thank you for continuing to bring us such amazing shots from where you live and keep up the great work!!

Nice black and white. I wish the page top hadn't interfaced with the child's mouth.
Still a very strong image, almost like something Goodman would do. Very nice.

It seems as though the boy holding the paper is the subject in this picture. Yes, the paper is the largest object in the shot, but as a whole, I see the boy holding the paper.

07/20/2007 06:54:41 AM
The large radius USM is a little severe. Other than that, this would have been an excellent image.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/20/2007 06:33:00 AM
This photo seems to tell a story, as the titel states "oh boy" a newspaper could very well be an exciting thing for these boys. alot of emotion is bought out. and alot of efort must have gone into it.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/20/2007 03:44:14 AM
I like the image very much. I think it is very popping but the title does not make sence to me. the contrast gives this image a good feeling and I like what the border does to it. I would like to see a little more focus on the boy's face. Good Luck!
