Had this one near the top of the heap-- Nothing could improve it IMO, it is perfect the way it is.

Nice shot, the kids seem dwarfed by the pyramid a bit much
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I like this but if you could have had deeper blacks I think it would stand out more.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/16/2009 03:43:23 AM
blown out highlights

Nice photo. Interesting location. I like the composition and the B&W conversion too.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2009 11:13:16 PM
good conversion to black and white
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2009 06:07:21 PM
A closer take on the reflection of the people might be more interesting.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2009 04:13:07 PM
I know this photo...it's one I'll always remember on sight! ;)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2009 10:51:46 AM
I like it a lot but think a bit more contrast and/or sharpness would have helped it along...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2009 08:43:34 AM
Such good use of B/W. Beautiful capture here. A true moment in time, not something staged. The reflection adds so much and my eye isn't destracted by anything at first glance. It went straight to the subjects. But what's pleasing is there is other things to enjoy in this photo. Nicely done and thank you for sharing. =)

the focus point seems to be behind the boys.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 10:04:27 PM
looks like it was a grand time. wish the subject was in better focus

toning adds to this image
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 01:39:48 PM
The glow on these children's shirts really focuses the eye.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 12:26:17 PM
Upping the contrast a little would make this image seem a little less flat.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 08:53:15 AM
They seems very interested in the water! I like the white clothes against the darker background.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 06:12:07 AM
I like the b&w pp

03/13/2009 03:44:30 AM
good compesition
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 03:24:34 AM
I like this. I like the way the boys really stand out strong with the overdone white shirts. I like the softness and I like the noise/low contrast through the rest of the pic. I also like the border.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 02:38:07 AM
I like this very much. It is an engaging image. Nice tones.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2009 11:09:08 PM
Without the kids this would be yet another Louvre image. Great choice to include them!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2009 10:11:01 PM
Love how they're so engrossed in what they're doing... and a great background, too!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2009 08:26:24 PM
Nice statement on the simple joys of childhood.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2009 07:21:05 PM
Including all of the boys reflections would have been a bonus but nice shot all the same.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2009 06:37:31 PM
Nice tones and story. Looks like an interesting place!

Good pic and crop.

"Hey, Matt! Look what I can do!"

"You'd better not! I'm telling Mom on you for making trouble!"

"Uh-Uh! This is a museum, so it's artistic expression!"

Nice capture. Great BW conversion. I like the formality of the building contrasted against the casual nature of the boys playing.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 08:56:06 PM
Nice reflection. Children at play - no matter where they are.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 03:36:55 PM
It may be the Louvre, but the boys are the subject of this picture. It looks like the one is digging into the pool. Intense concentration.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 02:42:11 PM
Great candid.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 01:15:13 AM
personally i think the crop is a little too tight. I like the b&w conversion though.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 12:33:17 AM
I wish it had more tonal range. Still, I'm lingering to look at the story it tells. Nice job!
