Not real sure of your profession from this shot. It's a very good photo, interest, color, focus, cropping. I especially like the water on the right. To me this just adds something to it. I know you are going to be told it should have been cropped out, technically. But I'm glad you left it in. The grey buildings in the background make the color stand out, and I like the Christmas balls behind them. The photo is a 10 but I don't feel you've meet the challenge. Again I can't figure out your profession, unless it is a human interest reporter. So I must give a 7. Sorry PTL Of course I'm assuming you do work.

That's a pretty cool "ornamental" fountain there in the background, too. I guess I'd like to see all three of them singing.

Ditch the chicks, that kid is a natural.

Love the child's expression in this photo. The balls at the top distract me a bit, though as well as the water on the right. Good luck!

Pretty good picture, lighting is great and expressions as well.

Good capture. I love the colors. The range is nice and there is good DOF... 8..Cub

Cute, but you are a caroler? I never knew it to be an occupation.

Wow! The little child totally makes this kind of ordinary shot really exciting! I wonder what made her/him so animated!

Very nice shot of three nice looking folks. Great skin tone, light and colors. Intersting for the eye.

1)Does the photo meet the challenge?(4)

Overall Score:(4.5 rounded to 5)

This is a great shot in the making. I think the buildings in the background take a way from it. Personally I would have framed it with the subjects a little higher. I realize you were trying to establish a mood with the background but, but I would not worry so much about what is going on behind as what is going on in front. That look on the childs face is Candid and that is what is important. This is a good shot to send to Grandma.

Is this YOUR occupation? If so, what a great job! What do you do the rest of the year? Love the expression of the child.

I like this well captured "Cheeeese" shot. Especially the kid really looks great!
