I don't think black and white is necessary here. When I squint my eyes the child nearly disappears. It seems cold instead of warm and inviting.

nice shot! The focusing is great on the girl and her tree. I love the way the other trees gradually fade into the background

Probably my favorite shot this week. Very nice use of Black and White and the shot has a Lion, Witch and the Wardrobe effect on me. The trees look very mystical and the child gives that innocent look that begs childrens fiction. I am guessing who this photographer is. Interesting to see if I am right.

She is so sweet. There is just enough of her showing, This is a nice take on Hide and Seek.

nice use of black & white. great photo

What child can resist a peek at the seeker? My eye is pulled directly to the child's face, good use of two/thirds.

This one was tough for me. I'm not sure I would have gotten the idea without the caption, but maybe. However, when I viewed it full size, the expression on her face was priceless and made the photo fit the catagory. Good job!

Cute. Good use of Black and White.
05/22/2002 09:29:00 PM
This is a great idea for a photo. I think I would have prefered a if the trees in the background were just a bit more out of focus. My eyes are drawn to the girl but the trees or maybe the bright ground sort of distract me from it. Good use of the rule of thirds.

Very very beautiful!

Very beautiful. I especially like the way the little girl's hand gives away her excitement.
05/22/2002 07:49:00 AM
Ok, now that is just *too* cute.
05/22/2002 03:08:00 AM
I like the expression you've captured here. Seems very cheeky. Not sure I'm totally happy with the vast space on the right. I think I'd prefer the pic in portrait and cropped to show half the tree she is hiding behind. Less DOF would keep the focus of the photo firmly on the girl rather than the background too.

I like the Black and White it gives it a mysterious look.

Beautiful picture... frame it
05/21/2002 11:01:00 AM
Very nice. Black and white is definitely good here, and I like the off center subject. Nice job
05/20/2002 09:25:00 PM
so inocent and very nicely composed. great contrast and value
05/20/2002 04:13:00 PM
Great surroundings for a great photo!
05/20/2002 03:56:00 PM
Adorable little girl! The tree comming up out of the center of the shot is a little distracting IMO.
05/20/2002 02:25:00 PM
Very nice composition ... it looks like she is really playing.
05/20/2002 01:47:00 PM
interesting composition. Good use of the zone tecnique.
05/20/2002 01:28:00 PM
nice use of the rule of thirds.
05/20/2002 01:23:00 PM
best of the rest !
05/20/2002 01:14:00 PM
Just good, great black and white. More crop on the left would of been good to pull her forward. Nice work.
05/20/2002 12:59:00 PM
Very cute shot, but I think more DOF is needed to draw out the subject.
05/20/2002 11:40:00 AM
She is absolutely beautiful. What a precious moment - thanks for sharing your game. :)
05/20/2002 10:39:00 AM
Would have been a tad better, imho, if this were taken level. Not shooting down.
05/20/2002 10:11:00 AM
This is a really nice photo.. I like the look on the girl's face :) I personally believe that a vertical crop on this shot would bring the hiding girl in as a larger part of the image... it's just personal preference though... good job!
05/20/2002 09:37:00 AM
Extreme cuteness!
05/20/2002 08:07:00 AM
Very nice shot
05/20/2002 06:40:00 AM
This photograph is precious. I like it in b/w. Adorable expression on her face.
