Hey Judi...just looking back through some old comments and found this. Probably thought when I first saw this that it wasn't street enough...then I saw:

Sure, George Kelly's is deadpan and yours is quite whimsical, but that shouldn't make it any less street photography. take care.

Congrats on the Red, Judi! This was one of 2 shots that I gave a last minute bump to a 9. Best of Show. Absolutely love the clarity, the subject, and the way the slight vignette on the lower half gives it a special depth. Well done :O)

Your toning and post processing on this shot really really make it. The subjects are fun to look at and the overall balance of the shot works. Very well executed.

I love the clarity & lighting on this. Stopped motion is awesome. Your choice of tones work well. I may have cropped off the top white strip, but that's just me ... 8

Something about the light in this and the painted stars, on the wall, along with the painted kids watching, all make this a very interesting picture.

You simply can't ask for better light, or a better backdrop. Very well seen, well timed, well presented.

Very nice...10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/28/2008 11:02:48 PM
This was one of my favorites in the challenge. The backdrop of course is outstanding, but more than that is how the individuals are interacting with the environment. The connection between the background and the action just works, rather than feeling forced. The perfect stop action here.

coming back to comment only:

already voted - and gave this shot a high one.. what really stands out for me is the clarity in this shot.. wonderful pping.. the lighting is great - the action was captured perfectly.. both feet off the ground.. love how how the painted figure on the right seems to be staring at the child making the shot ..and the painted figure on the left is looking the the child trying to block it.. just so well photographed!

This is another favorite, the way you capture the shooting is amazing.

Cool backdrop and a very very well timed 'click'.

10/27/2008 01:30:29 AM
Of course what puts this over the top is the mural in the back.... fantastic image!
