I love this! The kids looks totally absorbed in the bubbles he is busy creating!

I'd have liked a sepia tone background rather than the bright one to go with the tittle. Just my 2.0 cents!

Tnx for the shoot!

I think this is great. I love the bubbles! one small thing is i think i might have liked to see the whole head of the child.

Great silhouette, my only complaint would be not including the whole of the lil boys head in the shot!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/19/2007 08:48:40 AM
Great pic! It's a shame what compression does to the red fade.

this is nice concept
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/19/2007 07:28:55 AM
Great shot! Wonderful color and gradient. The varying degrees of focus on the bubbles works wonderfully. After I bump this up this will be one of my two 10s for the challenge. Hope this is scoring strong for you.
