Thanks for the great comments during the voting. We were heading back to our cars from a photo shoot I had with the family at the beach and it was just a really nice moment captured with her father guiding her through the puddle. Looks like the high contrast B/W worked well for this one.

Truly incredible shot! I find this absolutely stunning, and definitely my favorite of the challenge (with only 30 left to look at.) -10- and I wish I could give it a 15!

I'm going through the entries, stopping at those images I feel have had the benefit of an unconventional eye and dwelling a little longer to try to see and appreciate what you saw. This is one of those images.

Positives: Favourited this earlier, back to comment and vote. A clear 10 - no doubt. One of my favourite images I have ever seen on DPC. Masterful edit - such confidence to let areas blow, knowing how that would facilitated the anchoring of the eye to your subject. The high key, high contrast monochrome is inspired. The girl is delightful and looks so tiny compared to the hand. I suspect I have already favourited the photographer but I can't wait to see who this is.

Critical stuff: If I said anything here I would deserve to be banned from DPC.

Overall: Absolute top drawer stuff. I expect to see this on 1x too. Thanks for sharing this.

I don't know if the exposure obtained will be to every DPCers liking but I feel it's perfect. Of the 338 submissions this is my favorite (and is added as one of my favs). A photo that tells a story is special but for me this is an entire novel! I originally gave this a 9 but on my second viewing I'm bumbing it to my only 10 of the challenge. I would not be surprised if this doesn't ribbon but dissapointed if not in the top 10. This should be in a gallery where great art is hung. Well done!

she seems so unsure - the hand really provides a wonderful addition to give us comfort in her journey

I like this stylized processing (B&W/high key). I think the composition works well in placing the girl in a third of the frame but including the entire road and puddle showing the expanse of the puddle. I like the inclusion of the hand/arm of the father that conveys the watchful eye of the parent but not having him in the frame which may have taken away from the child. I like the capture of the concentration of the girl on her next step. Wonderful story telling image. Deserves a 10.

Very sweet. I like how that adult arm is barely there - as though she's about to take off her training wheels.
