Surely an underrated shot . .

Barring the winner it seems my thoughts and scoring were at odds with lots of the final places :- )

This is a really nice shot that grows on you the more you look at it. It has a wonderful depth to the picture both in terms of literal DoF and in terms of seeing all that is in there and what is going on - the life and movement - hustle and bustle of the picture.

Very good - as always . .

A 5.6?!?!?! What next? OH well. This is incredibly beautiful! and...(don't tell any one I said this, but I think this is better than the top ten winners... ) ;D

I agree with UrfaTheGreat. I cannot beleive the score this one got. It was by far my favorite of the bunch.

I like this one a lot - one of my 10s.

Great use of shallow DOF to strip out the detail from the child and background - they both provide a context without being the main focus of the image.

Now how did he catch one? I like how the one guy in the back is watching - trying to find out the fate of his friend. The others are more content to just eat and ignore. Excellent photograph.

Good DOF and post processing here.

The boy in the background makes this picture

That one on the left looks a little alarmed. Unusual capture, wish there was a fraction sharper focus and/or that 'alarmed one' wasn't so cropped.

Good use of dof, good to see human interaction in the scene.

Nice! Great capture!

Great photo! Wonder why he's picking up a pigeon like that? Interesting!

oversized, huh?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/30/2008 05:56:29 PM
Not as crisp and sharp as I would hope for a shot this close-up.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/30/2008 02:06:36 PM
This one is begging for a funny caption, but I can't think of one. too bad the boy and the bird in the hand are not in focus, that kind of hurts the application of the title.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Your title places the subject out of focus..
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/28/2008 07:06:59 PM
without the boy, 5. But with him it makes all the difference to me. 10

Nice capture, sorta looks like a Lesley Goodman shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

A pleasing image. Something different from the vast majority of the entries. Has more of a story going on than most of the portrait type shots. Bumping up 1.

I like this shot. You did a really good job of capturing an image that tells us a story.
