Challenge: Off-Screen Expectation (Basic Editing I)
Camera: Casio QV-R40
Location: Queens Park, Glasgow
Date: Mar 6, 2004
Galleries: Family, Candid
Date Uploaded: Mar 6, 2004

Sometimes you forget that things we see every day as adults can be amazing to kids. I grabbed this candid shot as my daughter and pals watched transfixed as.........well you decide!

I used the digal zoom on the camera which gave the picture the grainy look. As a colour picture it looked bad, but I think it kind of adds to the candid nature of the shot as a B&W.

Nice shot... love the grain. This image captures different expressions and effectively leaves the viewer wondering what they're reacting to. 10

this is a nice shot but the the soft focus/graininess kind of takes away from it for me...i like the way they are all focused on the same thing...makes me wonder what they are looking at

There is a real artist quality about this photo that is precious. Very nice job.

Thank you for taking a sincere photo! I'm so tired of obviously fake setup shots. This does my heart good.

The quality of the picture is a bit bad but I like the composition and the looks on the faces of the girls is very good captured.

Excellent moment in time! Nice use of monochrome.

Might have scored higher if there was no indication of what they were looking at. The image is a little too static to draw my attention out of the frame. I love the grainy feel to it, though!

Interesting photo. Meets the challege. Maybe a little soft on the focus.

I like the thoughtful looks on the faces, and the composition is nice too. Could have been sharper. Nice photo.

Excellent capture. B/W and softness make a fine album photograph. A simpler background would have been nice, but as is does not really detract.

I like the expressions. The only down, IMO, is the less than sharp focus. Good shot.

Expressions are great and work, but lots of technical problems IMHO such a too much noise and out of focus.

This is beautiful work!
I love the soft focus and the light grain in this.
The angle of the rail, the expressions and the color tone all help to make this more than just another photograph. A fine work of art! 10

Great, great capture. I love the intense concentration on something. Image is way too soft though and grainy. Lacks some sharp contrast.

Good capture but litle grainy

like the grainy b&w, nice capture of expressions
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I love the small-town newpaper feel of this shot. All of your models' expressions seem to corrolate. The B/W is perfect, and the contrast is very nice. 10.
