Well this weekend was one of my sisters 30th wedding anniversary so we went to hers for a party. I had a different idea for a picture (the kids peeking thier head around a door) but because I had to take it with a flash the shadows are dreadful and it became apparent that whilst I loved it it would get dinged horribly in a challenge

This is five of my nephews and neices messing around outside with Daisy. They a re great kids and all have brilliant personalities and fantastic sense of both fun and right and wrong

VERY cool kids

Jon, this looks like a fun group of folks. I love the way you processed it and am sure that you got dinged more by people not accepting the peek-a-boo than on quality. This is a wonderful picture and definitely one for the family photo album.

Man I ran out of time in commenting. I was gonna say something on this one. It's a fun and energetic photo. I wasn't totally sold on the soft glow and blur but I loved how you caught everyone jumping like that. Nice choice for black and white too. This will look good in the family scrapbook and should bring back some fond memories down the road.

Great emotion and action captured. I really like the processing for this image, adds a bit of a memory feel. Great capture.

Fun-loving crowd. There are some extras that could be removed...the chair being one. A little more thought to the surroundings and this moves from GOOD snap-shot to the beginnings of art.

Fun exciting capture. I like the odd Vaseline-y effect.

Nice family/ group shot. The processing on this shot looks a bit awkward though, I'd be interested to see what pp was done on this.
