Focal point does not take up enough space in the frame.

I think I understand what you were going for here but it gives the photo a doctored look to it. And I had to search for the subject...it wasnt immeditaly obvious with the soft focus on the right two subjects.

composition is awkward for me. Great idea, I just think there are too many distracting elements in the rest of the scene to pull this off effectively.

Good use of shallow DOF to isolate your subject. I would have preferred the whole face of the subject to be visible, but that is only my preference. Good luck

Okay, half the girl on the left is singled out using a boost of colour, but I see no DOF isolation, nor a thoughtful composition.

Like the idea but somehow it doesn't to it for me.

the focus on the woman on the far left brings out the differences between her and the other two people in a way that does not do good things for this shot; the difference is too stark. and while that can sometimes be good, it simply does not work in this case.

also: please explain title. i jus' dont get it.

This is offensive, and if you don't know why, you're offensive.

Cool idea but I'm really uncomfortable with the composition. I was about to mark it a 1 when I finally saw the girl on the left. It probably shouldn't be that hard :)

Ok she meets the challenge, my problem is that she is not really the focus of the picture.

not sure about the composition here...the lady on the left looks cut in half and the girls in the front look flat (colour wise)
