This looked so much like one of your masterpieces Les... Love the work you've done here. The image manages to capture a story and a personality (like no one else but you can do). Beautiful image.

Wonderful expression (hope your lens survived the sand ;-) Great work as usual, Lesley.

Lesley - great shot and finish.

I love the tension and dynamics generated through your choice of title.

The title generates in your mind a happy, cheery, colourful kids tv programme where the world is a bright happy place and problems are always wrapped up easily and everyones warm well fed and happy - Whilst the picture helps remind us of the harsh reality that not all children live in the tv fantasy land, and for many life isn't a whirl of joy and laughter. For many life is actually pretty grim, and full of hardship.

simple but powerful shot - perfect title.

I like this because it makes you want to know more about this boy's story. He has quite a serious face and it makes you sad because you want to see kids his age smiling and having a good time.

Good use of a wide angle lens to emphasizes an attitude and a background. It made against some photographic rules...and it's completely stunning.
A part of the merit for your excellent B&W, another for your young model.

love the feel of this photo, like it narrows as it goes back, this little guy seems real serious, amazing detail, one of my favs of this free study

There's just something about this - what a striking image. Great comp, processing, and lighting. This little guy is just classic... the viewer gets the feeling that you're intruding in his space, and you're about to get clobbered with that stick. Yet you look again, and it's almost playful. Ver well done - I hope the viewers take the time to slow down & appreciate this image.

this should be dramatic enough for DPC! He seems ready to build the next world trade center...

Remarks: the image is as engaging as a non-union man swinging a stick. Having the subject's eye-level forehead at vanishing point is an edgy choice indeed.

Great capture, especially considering that people are not flattered by wide angle shots. The vignetting does support the composition (not voting).

Very nice contrast. I like the closeup of the subject.
