A shot that captures the heart. You want them to stay that small, yet you want them to grow up. This picture has rythm with the title setting pace of the beat. Great effort

This is my fave of the challenge. Love the pose and the lighting. He's a cutie!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/11/2010 08:21:47 PM
Okay, I'm digging this. It's the low angle, and the blurred clouds that look like something out of a storybook. More that anything, it's that totally confident strut that's about to take him out of the frame -- as if to say, "Eat my dust!"

Really good. An eight for you.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/11/2010 06:54:54 PM
I like this a lot. Great capture
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/11/2010 01:04:25 PM
Excellent, top three for sure!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

The adult pretension on the kid's face is captured well. Very artistic and simple. Not over-edited. A photograph captured real sense.

04/06/2010 09:37:16 PM
How adorable is he???!! I love this! The simplisity of it is wonderful. His expresion is priceless. He looks as if he is on a mission, too busy to stop for such inconvieniences as photographs. :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/06/2010 04:42:03 PM
This is so cute!! I would have preferred him walking "into" as opposed to out of the frame but didn't affect my score. I love that the clouds cooperated for you and made this precious photo truly picturesque :-)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/06/2010 04:32:40 PM
Great shot. Classic. A little soft, but still got my second highest score.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/06/2010 02:27:46 PM
Love it. This is "on my wall" worthy.

  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/06/2010 10:35:40 AM
this is absolutely beautiful - I love it!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/06/2010 07:42:17 AM
It looks almost "fake", but I'm loving it.
I love how you broke the rule of "breathing space"..... having him walk out of the frame is against the rules, but totally works for me here.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/06/2010 12:47:36 AM
This is extraordinarily good. I wasn't even gonna vote this challenge, too many kids for me, I'm an old curmudgeon, but now I have to do at least my 20% so the 10 I just gave you will stick. Awesome performance!

great composition- top 5

Nice, that blue color. The grass is a little dark in my opinion but the lightning of the child is good.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/05/2010 01:47:19 PM
Love the perspective. You were down low for this one. or at least the camera was. Would have preferred him walking into the scene. But a good job.

One of my favorites so far. Just wish his face were illuminated a bit more. Love the cloudy background.
