Soooo very happy with my score, it is very funny because my husband and I were on a walk at the State Park that we were camping in kind of keeping an eye out for something with a smile/frown in it and right on the boardwalk where we were walking...ta da...2 shots later and a few others that didn't make it into this bunch...

What is even funnier...it that this one scored soooo much higher than this one Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_846503.jpg which I had really, really worked hard at...just goes to show...less is more

Hi from the Critique Club

When this came up I thought why does someone who is in the top 5 want a critique? I guess the comments since voting have been of the "good one" style rather than a critique so here goes...

First impressions are that it meets challenge well and looks like it was a find, rather than contrived. The cropping/composition gives a feeling of being tilted at first but then we glimpse the other boards at the side and then it seems to take on a lifelike feel - like one in a crowd.

The tones are nice, the nose adding a much needed element of colour to the otherwise bland wood. DOF seems to be a little shallow, the mouth is in focus but the eyes seem to be getting a little fuzzy.

Overall its a nice shot with a good whimsical face showing.

Oh Janine! So little difference in ribbon score and this. *sigh*

I really hate it when that happens. *sigh again*

He's just TOO ADORABLE! I've never seen wood be so cute!
