I love this. The two characters performing their actions as if on cue. A tremendous capture. The almost-silhouetting just emphasizes the story. The background is faded into light, so provides only an interesting composition of shapes with strong diagonals, and no distractions. A really wonderful photo.

This doesnít offend me at all. I appreciate your time and effort trying to make my picture look better and thank you for that.

Now I should tell you that this shot is pure candid, so I didnít have too many choices. I played with image quite a bit before submitting it. I tried different crops as well. Finally I submitted the one with two people for two reasons:
1) It tells the story.
2) From my experience with DPC I know that very thin photos donít score very well on challenges.

Very nice; I think this would look great cropped down; the guy just doesn't mesh with the rest of the picture (as already stated). Hope you don't mind, but I took the liberty of playing with this, for less than 1 minute actually; just cropped both sides to center.

(Sorry no thumb; my website doesn't allow remote linking to images)

Very lively and playful, as though the sun is energizing her spirit...but he looks a bit out of place with that premise. Really like how you got the great highlighting and appropriate detail in the sides opposite the sun. Well done!

It's the postures of the subjects that makes this image effective for me - they make the image "say" much more - it's not simply a snapshot of two people.

great interaction between the two! well cropped, like that you included the full shadows. the glaring light emphasizes the difference between the two body shapes and styles. overall a bit too pale, you should have pushed the contrast some - 8
