This is the first time I've ever done anything like this and it was much harder than I expected! I shot 3 continuous photos and combined them with layers...I don't expect a good score, but I did learn something and had some fun with it.

I added each photo as a layer, masked them and used the paintbrush to reveal the parts back that I wanted. Flattened the image when I had it the way I wanted and then applied a curve and sharpened.

Great shot, a little overexposed on the faces in places but otherwise a fantastic shot. A top 5 contender IMO

Very fun and playful. The kids are great in this.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

very nice and creative idea for the challenge, but , as many others, there is no way to verify this complies with the rules without seeing the sequence of originals, since this is not necesarily a natural sequence of a single motion.
I will give you the benefit of the doubt, and considering the technicals, particularly the efective use of dof, a 9 from me

Nice! This really captures the fun of childhood.

They must've enjoyed it - beats having to pose around for stoopid portraits :-)

Great idea, well done...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/07/2008 10:08:02 PM
Great idea! I can't believe you still have leaves. Awesome job!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/07/2008 09:09:38 PM
This is great! The only thing I mighta done differently is to bring the stand up version of one or the other boy to the front - I might change my mind once I saw it that way though. Great job.

Cute kids! I'll bet they had fun doing this. Nice colors, nice composition.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/07/2008 07:27:38 PM
Very nice - I love the idea, the composition and the technicals. Wouldn't be surprised if this ends up in top 10.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/07/2008 07:18:00 PM
Pretty good shot. The composition bothers my eye a bit in that everything about the shot is fairly symmetrical except for their placement in the frame which is inexplicably skewed just enough to the left to make the shot unbalanced.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/07/2008 07:05:52 PM
Fantastically fun shot. Very well done. Back to bump you up to 10.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/07/2008 03:25:23 PM
Cool, that must have been hard to mask. 7
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/07/2008 02:10:52 PM
looks like fun, I like all the stopped motion leaves
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/07/2008 01:15:04 PM
I wrote some comments, then gave up. It just 10!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/07/2008 12:14:07 PM
Now this is just wonderful. I bet this will be framed and hanging on the wall. I think of images like this as challenge success. So many people griped about the new rules, and yet without them people wouldn't put together such wonderful shots as this.

I can't think of anything that this image doens't have going for it. A 10 is an understatement!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/07/2008 10:17:48 AM
This makes me smile - very well done -10-
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/07/2008 07:00:56 AM
I think this series of joined photos results in a nice visual message. Not perfect but not too bad either. 7.

Excellent
