I had a whole different shot I was working on for this challenge, but this presented itself at an open house today. I like the bright colors. The overexposure here, is "effective" by depicting the unknown possibilities.

I'm hoping the challenge isn't full of properly lit subjects with pure white backgrounds...

I loved this one and gave it a very high score.....
Almost like a watercolor pencil & ink drawing.
I love the perspective and lines, and the complete charm this one has.

I didn't get to vote in this challenge due to my schedule Jason, but this deserved a ribbon...

Actually, one of the best shots you've ever entered in many ways... I'm depressed this didn't even make the top 10, looked like a sure ribbon to me.

Reinvention of colour and light in a institutional setting!

Hey, what's wrong with a properly lit subject with pure white background for this challenge!? ;)

Great image by the way, brings back the fear and uncertainty of a first day in a new class.

Terrific! Brilliantly composed and executed. Beautiful patterns and colors throughout, and the image would not have worked without the overexposure. A nine for you.

I love the colors. The over exposure in the photo looks like the child is going into a mystical place.

Centered subject works well, with the overexposure making a subtle, incomplete, internal frame.

Nice colors and nice light source placement directly in front of your subject, she really looks like she's being welcomed by something amazing.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

WOW, this is very nice. Perfect for this challenge. Over exposure is used very artistically here. This should be in top 10 for sure.

really good take on the challenge. I wasn't sure to start with but it grew on me the more I looked at it. I like the way the overexposure can be seen to be starting at nursery being a little overwhelming for the child - 9

This really does capture something intangible about the anxiety of the first day of school. Nice shot.

When this first popped up on the screen I thought this little girl was walking into the light from a hospital hallway. Glad to see it is just kindergarten. Shewwwww. Nice Job! I like the effect.

With Aidan starting kindergarten last week this image hits home. Great colors and detail. The overexposure is a great element in the image.

Oh yes, the light beyond - sort of Spielberg, but he's no slouch :)
