Greetings from the Critique Club

With a score of 6.38 and favorable comments during the Challenge, I expect you got what you wanted from this image. It is a good one.

It tells a story which can be read many ways. This is a talent which not everyone has. Therefore, technical thoughts fly out the window. For example: Did you want the shallow depth of field to show the progression of the child from the faintest suggestion at left, to the extra sharp of the child on the right? If you did, it works. The circle composition works it's magic here as well. The fact that a child's head touches the top of the frame? Usually a technical flaw. Here, it seems to work.

I can only wish you continued success in your experience here at DPChallenge.

Very nice picture. Interesting DOF. Little overexposed for my liking. Light a bit harsh on the boy's head in the front.

Greaet DOF. The first boy munk could have been a tad sharper maybe. Ther is some blue colorization in his right eye, but I am being ridiculously picky here. Like it a lot. Bump

Beutiful picture, the tones and colors are excellent, and the curve of the line they are standing in really makes the picture. I think this is my first or second 10.

Nice vibrant colors and engaging subjects. It makes me wonder what or who they are looking at.

Really nice image. I love the greens and orange. I also especially like the arc of the boys heads, although I do wish there was a bit more room between the top head and the edge of the image. Wonderful image with lots of destinations implied.

How did you get them t line up like that. Great colors, composition, and mood. My favorite so far. I wish the boys in the background were in focus, but that's a minor quibble.

The background I feel should be burned more- it is very light and takes away the focus from your subjects

I see the orange first and have to make myself look at the rest. I think the faces should all be in focus and less glare on the head.

Beautiful. Simply beautiful.

I love the Buddhist children. The DOF is good but the lighting seems a tad harsh. I like the orange and yellow corlorations. Maybe a zoom to get a closer detailing of ONE of the faces might've served you a bit better.
