We had just spent the afternoon watering flowers at my daughters' school. The street has been under construction so it is all torn up but I noticed this structure on our way and I thought "maybe on the way home ...".
So that's what we did. They are modeling for me. We happened to find a dirty old cigarette butt and after my younger daughter failed to make it look legit, my oldest pulled it off. I was pretty pumped about this shot - I didn't even know all the reasons but I think compositionally, the lines make it one of my better people photos for sure.
So pleased that voters are liking it. Well over 7 at this point.

Your daughter deserves an Emmy.

Congrats on the ribbon! This fit the bill, IMO, with the only distraction being the back end of that jeep. Well done!

I really don't peruse the member challenges as much since I can't vote on them. With that said, yours would have been my top pick. It's gritty and really reminds me of a Mary Ellen Mark image from what I've seen of her work. Everything hits the mark for me. Your oldest really has that attitude look; props to her.

There were a few that stood out for me, but this one made me think "whoa."

Not quite as powerful as the original, but still a great image as this is not a copy challenge! The girl does a great job in expressing the emotion that I feel in the original. Well done, both of you :) (voted earlier)

so far this is the closest thing I've seen to one of her shots in this challenge, I really hope it's not staged but I can't say I didn't think of staging one for this challenge. I will vote as tho it's not staged.
