I've never taken 'candid' before and had to push my self-conciousness aside (took Snaffles' advice from an earlier C Club review) so am really pleased I caught anything!

Thank you for all the lovely comments.

Greetings from the Critique Club!

Woohoo! Ellie, so glad to see you in the top ten with this image and even happier that some of my advice helped! You caught a very sweet and joyous moment here with mum and little boy both having a great time flying a kite. The kitestring leads us right to the heart of the action without distracting, and they're both having a great time and not noticing you at all. Simple and uncomplicated background, we see enough to get a sense of place and the ambient lighting shows us it's a nice sunny day.

Very, very glad and honoured that you set your inhibitions aside and took a chance. See how being sneaky can pay off? :-) Keep up the great work!

Susan

Yay! Top 10 finish, broken that magic 6 mark, and a PB!

That looks like so much fun! I like the joy you've captured here. If I were to nitpick, I might like a little less of the grass in the foreground and a little more of the kite string.

Marvelous joy. The unseen kite is as much a part of this as the child's laugh.

This deserves ALL 10s. Unfortunately I can only give one of them.
