Los tres amigos! This is charming. Love the composition and colours and contrast.

Looks like a good day out.
03/17/2009 02:51:43 PM
The pose is adorable, especially since they have matching outfits on, very cohesive.
03/17/2009 09:42:43 AM
Delightful candid image of this brotherly trio.
03/16/2009 10:59:33 PM
This photo doesn't keep my attention. The slightly tilted horizon doesn't help.
03/16/2009 10:28:03 PM
out of focus :/
03/16/2009 06:19:12 PM
Soft focus, but an endearing image.
03/16/2009 12:14:57 PM
Interesting subject but I would like to see more of the scene. What are they looking at? Lighting could be better, too.
03/16/2009 04:12:06 AM
nice shot
03/16/2009 03:08:04 AM
Don't assume that because you have an affinity for your subject, the rest of the world will too. Otherwise, a good workmanlike photo.
03/16/2009 12:41:32 AM
Nice capture, even though the crop feels too tight.
03/15/2009 09:08:04 PM
bit blurry, but great shot. Looks like they're in school uniforms.
03/15/2009 05:35:19 PM
great feel good photo.
03/15/2009 03:57:47 PM
a bit flat - a larger aparture could improve this
03/15/2009 12:08:55 PM
Good DOF, cute shot but doesn't really hold my interest very long.
03/15/2009 12:05:10 PM
Aw, very cute. A bit too contrasty, you've lost all the detail in their heads.
03/15/2009 09:51:26 AM
this is really cute, love how they are dressed the same, school uniforms i imagine, and i like how the one in back seems to be taking charge by wrapping his arms around them, trying to figure out what their expression woudl be on their faces, are they trying to figure something out, looking at something interesting...
03/15/2009 09:11:35 AM
The three amigos.....
03/15/2009 05:10:00 AM
this is great moment ;) although the format of file (side ratio) is a bit tight

cheers, brano
03/15/2009 12:54:47 AM
Good shot. Well cropped.
03/15/2009 12:13:44 AM
Don't take this the wrong way but as I see DPC as a learning experience here is my frank critique:

This comes across as a snapshot. By that I mean that I feel that anybody standing where you were with a camera could have gone click and got this result. I think a photographer should aim to do more than that. I may be wrong and perhaps you do have more of a story to your shot but the fact is that it doesn't come across to the viewer.

As an example, if you were in Paris and saw the Eiffel Tower you could hold the camera and go click. You'd have a shot that millions of other tourists have and would be good as a record of your holiday. I think at DPC you need more than that. You need to consider the POV - make it something that enhances the tower (include a flowerbed or kissing couple in the foreground), make use of lighting (dusk for shadows), composition (maybe include the buildings beside it to get a sense of scale).

I hope this helps and please don't be offended, I'm only offering an opinion.

Adorable and timeless. Great eye for catching this one.
03/14/2009 10:10:57 PM
sweet shot, and the crop was a good choice
03/14/2009 09:25:18 PM
Beautiful shot.
03/14/2009 06:25:12 PM
I wish I could see more of the scene, but this is a cute image.
03/14/2009 06:22:25 PM
What a great sense of camaraderie.
03/14/2009 11:02:40 AM
Cute capture.
03/14/2009 05:44:02 AM
nice happy emotion from this
03/13/2009 08:16:22 PM
you are making me curious at what they are looking at ? Crop a little too tight IMO
03/13/2009 08:13:23 PM
03/13/2009 05:07:41 PM
great feelings, too bad they're not turned in our direction
03/13/2009 04:08:54 PM
This is a wonderful little image. Very nicely done! 8
03/13/2009 12:47:23 PM
I like the way they're all dressed the same and that the colors are all so natural - very nicely seen
03/13/2009 12:17:30 PM
Lovely photo with the three boys, but I'm wondering what they are looking at.
03/13/2009 11:38:49 AM
very emotive
03/13/2009 10:50:45 AM
good capture, could be sharper, though
03/13/2009 09:58:06 AM
I like this..
03/13/2009 02:42:10 AM
I'd rather see this one with a wider crop and more off center.
03/12/2009 04:10:50 PM
makes me smile....clear crisp focus

He is talking the others into something.

Cute photo. I wonder what they are looking at?

Terrific subject. The narrow crop seems awkward, like you are cropping out unwanted elements rather than emphasizing the boys. F.R.I.E.N.D.S.? Is it an acronym?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2009 09:27:55 AM
would have like to see more of the picture, as it is these kids are taken out of context, which does not really work for me. i like the photojournalistic feel to this thought

A little to soft but nice subject matter. From the back it really is more artistic.

Cool shot. I like that there are three of them.

Nice compsition.

03/11/2009 08:32:40 AM
emotive and might have looked really great if one of the kids had turned to face you
