Amazing image - beyond snapshot whilst respecting the genre.

I think it's crystal clear as well but the title knocks things off kilter. The image is so beautifully natural. One of the best candids I've seen in quite sometime.

4.9? Who gives a shit. Rage against the machine!

This photo is so intimate, so sensationally intimate, so spectacularly intimate, shows so much emotion without being offputting. quite the opposite.

Amazing.......so much meaning of expression

Images like this make me wish that a descriptor was allowed to be viewed. Does not make sense to me with just a title. Sorry

I love this image because it really expresses something strong. It's hard to tell whether she is crying or laughing and I think that really adds to it. I think the greenish tint also really works well.

I don't see what's the risk.

The composition and idea for this photo work and are a great idea. However I think that the lighting definitely could have been different and less harsh.

Sorry but don´t get how this fit´s in the challenge, not by a long shot. All I see is a set up portrait of a mother and child, and if anything I would say the child was working WITH a net, in this case the mother. Voted a 2 simply because of this but it´s far from a bad photo.

You should convert this to black and white for added impact. Alternately, low-contrast acid tones after correcting the white balance a little helps to cover up the coloration weirdness here. It's distracting from the moment.

I suspect that this is not a DPC friendly shot, but it's a beauty nonetheless; great color; beautiful light. Very expressive. Not sure the title helps it.

Nice capture - Like the colours and muted tones - The softness of the image adds to the feel - Very natural looking.

I like the shot a lot, but where's the challenge connection?
08/29/2007 03:26:22 PM
Good photo, but not in the spirit of the challenge. IT SHOULD DO WELL IN A FREE STUDY.
08/29/2007 12:15:11 PM
snap shot like. And don't understand this fully.

Great picture. Suggests strong emotions without exactly revealing which ones, so it leaves plenty of room for intrepretation. I like that. No idea what either the title or the challenge have to do with it, but I like the general feel of the picture too much to care. (9)
