The bottom of the photo looks like it's got some color problem. Like when you set a photo to have only a sertain amount of colors. It looks like it was an upload problem though, because it is o nly in the bottom inch or so of the photo. Strange. Oh well, not your fault, so I can't count that against you, or your pic. I love the "play" in this photo. My son also loves the photo cause of the dinosaur. The lighting is great for this photo and I like how the background is black. Great depiction of childhood. Good luck in the challenge.

Nice shot...

interesting idea and good clarity. how did you get the background SO black?

Initially I didn't like this photo, but the more I look at it, the more it grabs me :). It's taken down at the level a child would see as he/she is playing with the toys, which makes everything come alive in an imaginitive way. But also, I love the composition, with those blue trees, and the dinosaur head coming in from the side. The narrow depth of field gives the image a sense of scale and leads your eyes even more to the dinosaur. Nice photo :)

Love colours and dark "sky" against blue trees but don't like low DOF in this photo, just too blurred a foreground for me.

The object that is out of focus in the front left bothers me a little bit. Nice child like colors though, and no one can say you did not meet the challenge.

good diorama :)

Nice picture, too bad the palmtrees are very much present due to the focus.
Maybe if you put the dino in front of the palmtrees and foccused on the dinosaur this picture would be more interesting. Like the colors.

The most striking thing about this picture is the vivid blue of the palm trees. It wouldn't suit the challenge, I think, but I'd like to see just those trees -- right as they are -- in the sand without the other items. Just tan, blue, black.

I like this lots... the balance, the colors, the composition. The only thing is... don't use the name of the challenge in the title, no way, no part, no how! And the blurring of the red thing in the front left is kind of distracting.

captures some of the things i used to love doing as a child. 8

Nice setup for photo, some toys somewhat out of focus but overall I really like this photo.

I like this except for the blurred truck on the left. I think its a little too distracting. 6.
