Great capture.... This shot really made me wonder what the children were thinking about (especially the two on the right). Great job!

I love this image. I think it belongs in a magazine.

This is a sweet photo, and a touching one. That little gesture says so much, especially with the title you chose. The composition is gorgeous. The boy being slightly out of focus adds to it, as it both softens him and suggests his focus on the flower and the girl. Good one!

Thank you. In addition to being a charming photo, your title made me laugh out loud.

Nice shot but seemed a stretch for the B competition.

This pulls me in the more I look at it - a beautiful candid shot. I think I'd prefer for all the four children to be sharply in focus, especially the grinning mischief maker with the flower. This shot is very powerful for me.

love it. The boy's face is priceless, as is his "disaffected" little gf. what a capture. Ideally, a greater DOF, but I don't care, not every great picture is technically flawless. 10.

This is a clever and beautiful pictute. The yellow touches against the dark skin. Beautiful. A little more clarity and it would be the winner.

This is beautiful work :) ..my favorite of the week... = 10

I really like this shot. Good colors and tones. the DOF could be a bit deeper to bring the boy on the left into sharper focus, since I feel that he is the one that is the "boyfriend." But a bit of motion blur may seem to be the problem. Then a faster shutter speed would help

Excellent capture! The yellow is outstanding. Probably stretching it a little bit to meet the challenge, but then again...so is mine. =)

Great expressions captured here.

Is that you gigi922. Either way, great shot. good luck.
Not sure if you would have cropped the shorts off the picture to focus more o the yellow flower wuld be better or not. I think I would tried both crops and picked my favorite. This shot could have been also great for the "unanswered questions" challenge.

!!! What a gleeful, mischevious moment you caught! That shock of a yellow flower against her inky hair is spectacular, and the expressions on these children are just lovely. Awesome photo.

Well shot, I think you've got the DOF just right.

Cute kids, cute composition, natural looking pose. The focus is just soft. If this was sharp/crisp it would of been a winner. Good eye.

Hey, Boys wil be boys! He's just showing his sensitive side. Super capture. National Geographic cover.

Nice. Great expression on the boy's face - shame the side of his head is missing, though. Still a great catch.
