My niece Ísabella Sól. Yeah it was really her first nosebleed. I don't think she even realized what this red stuff was. It's a last minute submit and yes I know it will score low. Just wanted to let you know I'm still here =)

Hahaha, I was just thinking. What is Steinar doing. So I went to your profile and was amazed you scored even lower then me :)
My entry also was a "Yes, I'm still here" entry...

Poor kid.... Hope it didn't hurt...

The thing I find interesting about this picture is the woman is sitting there smiling and reading a magazine. Excuse me, but shouldn't someone be concerned enough to clean the child's nose?
Sorry if that sounds catty, but geez... ?

wow, this evokes some pretty strong emotions, why is the kid bleeding, why is it his first, why is that lady just reading a magazine instead of helping? Overall a pretty negative experience for me - technically I really like the photo, the subject repels me -6

The photo is very grainy. It doesn't portray any idea of family. The lighting from the window is overdone. Better luck next time.

Not all familial moments are pretty. This one speaks to me because my little brother used to get nosebleeds constantly. We all got so used to it, that blood doesn't bother me so much now. I thought my image would get the most comments for shock-value, but you might be right in there with me. Here's to departing from the expected!

Strange priority there. Kid has got nosebleed and first things first, lets get a pic of it!?? I do not find this image appealing in any way.

A very engaging image...I have to say I'm not a huge fan of baby and kid images...but there is just something so real about this...nothing reeks of contrivance and posturing...the way the little boys seems to be confronting the viewer is quite powerful...but then there is this air of nonchalance too...so very well done.

Ugh, not one for the sight of blood. But his eyes are amazing. Nice family snapshot. Definitely a keeper to be used when he is 16 and dating.

Oh I remember those days!!!! I really like the nice frank quality to this. Nothing fancy, not overdone. Just an adorable shot of a kid with a bloody nose. Thanks for the smile. 8
