As care free and candid looking as it gets ... whether it was or not. Well done making us feel like an intruder on her private moment of boredom and daydreaming.

P.S. Not to mention that the technicals on this image are sharp and beautiful.

Phil thinks this is "a pretty good photo" and he would like to see it in full color. I wonder if you captured this image in color and changed it to black and white during editing? If so, we can consider buying a copy from you in the DCPrints. This would be an experiment for the very first time ever. Get back to us please and keep on shooting great photos. From one of your favorite group of fans. by Donald

This was without a doubt the best photo in the challenge. Why anyone would give you a 2 or a 3 on this is beyond me (or anything below a ten for that matter). It was a great shot and candidly captured boredom, good job and congratulations!

I have always been a fan of black and white photography and you just reminded me why. This is just absolutely great. Nice job!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/29/2005 08:34:27 PM
Emotive! Lovely B&W! Great detail!
Can only suggest that it would be desirable to see the tips of the sneakers--I think they would help convey more attitude.
bumping.

This is a very sharp image it looks very nice in black and white. The texture of the ground, her clothes, her hair and the tire look great. The shadow on the ground also looks very nice. This can also be related to being bored because i remember doing these things when i was little.

03/27/2005 08:14:41 PM
really captured the feeling of bored in this shot, bumping up.

i think you got the ribbon.

This is childhood boredom at it's finest. You may never have the pleasure of being bored in this fashion after your 12th birthday, ever. Enjoy, young lady! Nice photo!

Very good shot. Love the B&W here. The exposure is excellent, and the composition is great. I would really have loved to see this girls face, but that may have ruined the shot.

Now this is a refreshing "bored" photo! Very well shot and not the usual stuff. Maybe because it reminds me of when I was bored as a kid, maybe I see my kids doing the same thing, but you have really captured an emotion...a moment. It doesn't look staged really either. Good job.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/23/2005 04:27:25 PM
nicely done
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/23/2005 02:30:13 PM
This is one of my favourites. Very nice and catchy b&w photo. It depicts boredom in an almost natural way; i like the fact that she's not posing to the camera. Great shot.
