Nice capture of a "little spoiled pout."

strong photo!! I am saving it to my favorites!

The dress looks a little like a petticoat and it's too pretty. Maybe a frumpy-looking plaid or gingham frock would have worked better. Good photo.

very good!

Excellent composition. The mouth says it all! Exposure is well handled.

i love open shots, nice gray tones highlight detail excellent
07/30/2007 02:20:02 PM
Well composed - raises curiosity for me.

I'm not sure what emotion is being portrayed here. The title indicates disappointment. However the dress is very nice and the girl looks beautiful in it and she has a neutral expression. The skewing of the angle works here.

very nicely composed....i think a more dramatic lighting would have added depth to the subject

Sweet image. Love your DOF and the background works so well in this image!

Nothing about this photograph speaks about "emotion" except the title.

Great lighting and tones - Like it a lot.

Lovely. I like the grain in the bkg, but might perfer less on her skin, but that's a minor preference. 7.

Great shot. Not so great emotion. In deference to the quality, I'm just going to skip it without voting. Take that as a compliment in this challenge...

I saw this one somewhere around here for a sec, but can't remember whose it was. I really like it as a portrait and hope it doesn't get to shot down for showing some face. The black and white works perfectly and all her body language seems to show how she really feels about the hand me down. excellent.

i am not very fond of the composition, nor the grain in this shot, although probably intentional.
07/25/2007 06:15:35 PM
Do I think this image shows "Extreme Emotion": No . Nice shot nonetheless, althought there is still some face in there, 5.
07/25/2007 04:49:27 PM
I actually feel like there is emotion here but the title will hurt you with the masses.
07/25/2007 01:12:06 PM
Oh how I can identify.
07/25/2007 12:46:13 PM
I really like this shot, but I don't believe it fits the category as well as it should; or maybe I don't understand a young girl's emotions when it comes to dresses. Anyway, I would score an 8 or higher in a more fitting category.

wonderfully composed image - the image is just fabulous
07/25/2007 10:49:22 AM
beautiful lighting on this one
07/25/2007 10:12:25 AM
oh poor girl. Someone buy her a new dress. Nice picture
07/25/2007 09:51:21 AM
Nice pic. The emotion doesn't jump out at me.
07/25/2007 01:49:57 AM
what is the emotion here?
