This is my beautiful 11 year old daughter. I was originally shooting for the Color in Black and White challenge, however my DPCO III team mates thought it would do better in Bummer, and I agree.

Hope you like it :).

Dawn, this is reeeeally good! Your daughter is indeed beautiful. And you so captured the "bummer" spirit she looks like she is feeling. Congratulations on front page honors with this deserving photography!

Hey, *I* have a beautiful 11-year-old daughter, and *I* took a photo of her looking out the window at a rainy day.

But *you* do it well. :) Congrats on top 10!

I almost wish I could see more of the window frame. Great capture.

Perfect for this challenge. B&W works nicely with the drama of the shot. Her expression is perfect.

I really like this shot for the expressions, monochrome, and the title.

I like the photo but i think if you had removed the blowing out window frame it would have been much better.....just my though....

I don't like your photo, BUMMER!. Not really, would have done well in B&W as well === 7

I like the framing in this shot. Good focus and lighting. The model did well with the facial expression. Some actual raindrops could have added to the shot, but overall, I really like it.
