You've managed to get the white umbrella to stand out against the white background giving a very simple, yet appealing composition. The contrast of the legs sticking out from beneath actually serve to ground the whole image. Very nicely done.

Nice, though it seems perhaps a little heavy on the NR for my preferences.

Added: Judging by the style (especially the lighting) I am going to hazard a guess that this is an entry from either ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' Lutchenko or ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' Connor

I like this. The feet are heavy on magenta, I'd like to see them warmed up, otherwise, nice shot. 9

I like how you cannot see the human except from the knees down as the blue jeans and shoeless feet make a great contrast with the white brolly. Clearly in motion but with no rain, so it is a mechanism of obfuscation here but it IS effective & engaging. The white high-key background adds to this a lot also.
