Beautifully composed and rendered. I love the dangling bear on one side and the balled fist on the other. Nicely done.

Nicely composed, love how I get drawn into the photo, like the washed out colors of the surroundings and the way she's carrying the bear is perfect.

She looks so resolute and determined!! (And yet the first thing I thought of was "why are you letting a child walk down the middle of the road?? I'm guessing it's either closed or infrequently used.) I like your choice of toning/processing, too. But mostly I like her posture and clenched fist. So determined.

This is a new comment series for me, so please bear with me while I find my style!

(Voted earlier)

This is one of my 10s - I like it very much. Furthermore I think it enriches the DPC collective portfolio. Put simply, I wish we saw more stuff like this. Let me tell you why it pushes all the right buttons for me:

1. The coloration: I love that cross-processed look, offering a slightly vintage feel.

2. Fantastic clarity of your subject - you've nailed the focus and used a narrow depth of field to isolate your subject; you've anchored the eye wonderfully but we are all too aware of the context.

3. A great sense of story - why is she off on her own like that? What is she leaving behind? Is there a car hiding over the hill?

4. Your POV - your low angle does great things to the perspective of the image and adds a considered cinematic appeal.

Overall: Beautifully balanced shot, well conceived and superbly executed.

What a determined stride she has. Resolutely facing whatever lies down the road.

WOW fantastic POV REALLY great

Oh man - this is just awesome. A little flat on the over all color sat, but the subject is perfectly done - I'd like to see this a Top Three is not the winner. Well done.
