Welcome back! It's good to see you taking an active role in DPC again. I hope this is a sign you have taken the helm of life once again. Once again, welcome back -- this new year has a several of the greats returning to DPC, I am so glad you are one of them.

But, about this image. It's fantastic. This and 'Grandpa' are not images that I immediately recognized as yours, but if they are a new direction for you -- I like it.

The curiousity of youth, wondering what the big people are doing when he's not around -- I wonder how long it took him to become bored at what they consider fun. :D

Nick, I love her expression -- and am glad you are showing Ruby off with a larger image this time. ;)

In this image she seems a bit too red, but I can't tell if it's from bounced lighting off the read cloth or from over-saturation of the red channel. This blends her into the background a bit (although not heavily) which causes her to not be offset as much as she could have been. It's not a big issue, so I hope the voters don't penalize for it.

Usually I agree with the general final placement of the images I critique -- but this one should have finished in the top half at least.

The latticework creates an interesting repeating pattern for the portrait to break up -- but what makes this photo special is the backlit portrait has been cast into a near silhouette that really accentuates that the head is the main subject and everything else is only there to accent the head.

To this end, I come to my only regret for this photo (aside from the final placement); the partial desat. IMO, the single splash of color serves only to pull my eyes from the head.

While I like the silhouette, portraits are made or broken on their treatment of the eyes. I fear you lost votes due to not being able to decern the eyes. As Judy mentioned below, even if it was just a glint of light in the eyes, the photo would have been much better received. Of course, that is just my take on it -- could be wrong.

Man, I am getting all the tough ones tonight! :D

First, congrats on a high placing for an unconventional photo -- not many could have pulled it off. The composition and sensitivity the image projects carried it past what many I fear saw as a set-back -- the darkness of it.

I will freely admit that I was put off by the darkness at first, but as I've sit here looking it over as I prepare to write this critique I began noticing things I hadn't before. While I was first put off by the complete loss of detail in the front and around the girl in general -- I began to realize that this darkness caused my eye to move toward the book in her hand. Specifically, it emphasizes that she has a pen and is using it. The darkness occludes everything else, leaving me with only that it is a picture of a girl with a pen -- just what you intended I'm sure.

It is a well executed image, stopping the view long enough to get the point across and then releasing -- it is this grabbing of the voters that feel moved them past the darkness and into a higher score.

A wonderful showing, and rewarded you with a new personal best -- congrats again.
