I wanted to leave the EXIT sign in Red and yeah it looks bad but oh well. This photo is not in here to cater to voters. It's in because I like it :)

A great expression of one boy vs the big bad world! Well seen and a great idea to leave him as a silouhette instead of trying fill light.

Wonderful shot, Michelle! I feel that the red sign really just adds to this shot. A new front page addition shot for your profile portfolio! Poor little guy......let him out once in awhile, will ya?! *grin*

Hey, where is that kid going, school's out. :)

I actually did not notice the red sign at first, it wasn't that prominent.

My favorite part is how you got the kid off kilter. It adds a lot of energy to the photo and creates a very compelling shot.

woo nice shot, which almost has 'shining'-esque qualities

I love the fact that even though we cant see the boys face we can sense ennui with being 'trapped' indoors and a keenness to get out and play

I love the b&w conversion you have used, gotta be honest and say the desat less so, but the good news is that -as you say - you take pictures for you and not for me/voters

very nice finish - especially in a free study - an an intriguing study

Really nice shot, though the red exit sign draws too much attention (the effect also seems pointless). Still, a decently high score from me.

EDIT: Ah, Michelle, this was yours? Now I feel bad for criticizing the red. :-}
I really do love the photo.

The pose is just perfect. A young man eager yet hesitant to explore the world beyond. A memorable picture!
