At the request of my Mother, she wanted me to take some pictures of my two cousins. So I took some posed shots on the playground which i don't really like to do. I like to capture kids in the moment, more natural. Captures the innocence of the moment. Ontop of that i don't have a studio to shoot in :), so i work with what i got.

This shot was the last of 10 why my Mother said it was time to go hence the title.

Post-process:
brightness/contrast
channel mixer for monochrome
Levels
then added a double border

Wow, a lot going on behind the eyes. Decisive moment!
Just my opinion, but on this image getting the eyes a little closer to the thirds might make the image more cohesive and powerful (keeping the viewers eye roaming inside the image) - To do this seems like you'd best frame more space in front about 20% and a tad more above. Definitely don't want to lose the strong diagonals by cropping the bottom.
Overall, great image.

Love the lighting on this and the composition is great. Good choice to use sepia tone.

This is a beautiful image and I can see how the title is quite fitting. My only issue is that too much of the head is missing but I'll still bump it up to a 6 based upon all the other elements. Good luck!

i like this a lot but would have been interested to see lighting a tad stronger on the childs face

Ohhh she's so serious. Love her expression and the lighting. This is really nice. I only dislike the top of her head cut off. 9

cropping her head off and exposure (underexposed face, overblown highlights on her shirt) detracts from the beauty of the shot
