Refreshingly original. Great opportunity, but the "muzzleloader moustache" on the right ruins it for me.

I really like this, it's a nice story, verry well captured in tehnical terms, sharpness colors and everything, but compositionaly I think it could be better. I feel the crop is a bit too tight, I'd like to see the entire weapon of the girl on the right and also I'd like to see the one in the left not so close to the edge, somewhere in the 3'ds area. Anyways it's a beautiful picture.

Too bad about the musket across the face. Would have been nice.

Love this idea, just a shame that the musket is covering the other child's face.

The two things that detract from this image are the rifle entering from stage left without an owner and the rifle that seems to slapping the girl in the face. Perhaps the young defender on the left could be aiming the rifle in a classic pose (butt to shoulder) and you could safely lose the rifle entering from the left.

The gun in the middle is covering the girl's face, I think it would have looked better with the gun pointed another way...

Would have been nice to find an angle that didn't obscure the girl's face.

the gun over the girls face is a bit distracting

Gun is in front of girl's face.

The gun across her face spoils it for me, would want to see her expression.

Wish I could also see the second face without the gun in front of it - might consider cropping her out for impact.

I wish the gun wasnt for her face nice shot though gives the mood of old days :)
