actually, it was her idea to clean off the car for nothing.

I kept this in color to help convey the challenge, though I really think it's smooth vs. rough that isolates the subject, as well as red tones.

not that it matters, this is too complex a composition for the dpcrowd.

This was one of my favorites in the challenge. Those gloves are terrific. Sorry it didn't do better for you!

This made me smile when I came across it, I love the title and the warmth of her face contrasting with the snow. I also like that it seems such a big job for such a little girl but her expression says she's enjoying the challenge. My nit pick is that the diagonal line across the top draws my eye, I like it better cropped just below the path. Just because it makes it easier for me to focus on the subject and I'm lazy that way.

Nice contrast Don. You really know how to get the high scores! I'm jealous.

I came back to this one more than once. Probably about four times. I think I just thought it was really cute. :-) Or it could have been something about the angle.
