Great editing on this shot - almost looks like a drawing. Girls at play.

I like this a lot, great tones and smooth textures here and you get a sense of real friendship between them.

Says it all without showing a face. Best of luck to you on this fine faceless portrait.

Crisp clear shot. Well done.

Maybe it's because I have two daughters - one a brunette and the other a blond - but something about this photo draws me in. I can only imagine what they were whispering about and the giggles that probably followed. :)

What a warm and innocent shot. Love the sepia effect.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Really like the processing of this photo. I love portraits from the back
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2009 11:57:39 AM
I'm not normally a fan of this current style of processing but here it works.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2009 10:06:55 AM
This is very interesting. Your processing makes the girls look almost as metallic as the old car.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2009 09:40:09 AM
the post processing here is really nice, 6

I'm not even sure why but I love this. Maybe it is just the innocence of the scene.

I love it
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2009 12:00:25 PM
Oh the joys of childhood. The angle is perfect, it tells a story without seeing the faces. The writing in the dust is just an added bonus
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2009 10:53:31 AM
this is great...it could be on a Hallmark card or....one of your own...
  Photographer found comment helpful.

very attractive pic. well processed as well. I like the way the reflections in the window swirl and enhance the shapes in the girls' hair.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 06:39:37 PM
Nice post-processing, well done :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Interesting human interest capture. Very nicely processed! 8
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 04:24:29 PM
very pleasing light and duotone edit. i'm really curious what are they looking at! i would just crop the bottom part, it's distracting.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 03:25:37 PM
The details on the girls are great. I think the title is fitting as well.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 02:25:05 PM
Nice photo, but a bit too smooth for my taste. I like to see skin texture on skin.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 11:40:43 AM
emotive and sweet
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 11:15:11 AM
This one really hits the spot with me. I'm a sucker for expressive portraits-without-faces, and this one fits the bill nicely. I'd nit-pick and ask why on earth you framed out the completion of the curve at the bottom of the vent window, but it's just a nit... Good one!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 09:21:19 AM
nice pp work to make them stand out in the shot
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 03:44:15 AM
Good processing, it's a shame we don't see their faces
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 01:52:20 AM
I love the nostalgia of this photo. It is far from perfect in some technical aspects but you know what, I don't care. It speaks to me.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2009 11:12:06 PM
This is very intriguing. I want to know what she's looking at. The metalic tones really add oomph to this quirky shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2009 07:37:12 PM
Great capture and the processing is perfect.

Oh, how adorable!

I like the shot. Good tone.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2009 11:36:38 AM
Lovely composition and editing. I like how both the girls are anonymous.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2009 11:09:43 AM
I like this alot! I like the touch of the unexpected. And the processing adds so much to its look and feel.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2009 10:10:00 AM
Good human interest and great tones
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2009 07:24:55 AM
great post processing job, I love the treatment
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2009 06:57:06 AM
now what is this pair up to? curiosity plus, great image
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2009 06:34:03 AM
Very unique photo. But what are they curious about? There seems to be too little in the way of subject matter to really tell. Are they on a carnival ride? In a car? I honestly can't tell much about what's going on in this photo, which is too bad, because technically it is very well done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2009 12:30:36 AM
the crop is a little tight, but the sepia? conversion is great.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 11:33:41 PM
the letters on the bottom distract me but I love the top 3/4 of the image
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 10:40:48 PM
This has a great feel to it, and I love the processing. I think a tighter crop would've made a better impact, the letters at the bottom are distracting.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 10:28:37 PM
Well lit. Good shot and I like the post processing but this image feels like it's missing something....
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 10:19:42 PM
I recognize this! I think I faved a very similar picture where the girls were looking AT the camera? I think? I'll have to go back through my faves and look. this is precious! Processing has a dream like quality to it.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 08:10:29 PM
Nice, but their faces would be so much more appealing than the back of their heads.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 07:51:22 PM
Nice detail but I find it a bit busy.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 06:32:12 PM
I really like this. I don't need to see their faces to know what's going on. My friends and I used to play in the car and pretend it was a space ship.
Lovely processing, the tones are wonderful.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 05:55:37 PM
Like the look... nice.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 05:35:35 PM
Just fabulous
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 04:58:23 PM
This is adorable. Little girls checking out the vehicle. I like how candid it is and the use of duotones.
03/11/2009 04:28:17 PM
I like your post processing on this image.
03/11/2009 03:05:22 PM
Fantastic image! The title is perfect (I had to scrol down to see what you named it). The focus is so sharp, it hurts my eyes. :) Well done.
03/11/2009 02:33:51 PM
Looks like a story. Nice framing.
03/11/2009 02:07:14 PM
Wonderful tone, looks like a friendship card you would see in the store. Very nice job.
03/11/2009 11:18:48 AM
I like the sepia toning. and the processis cool. What are they looking at?
03/11/2009 11:08:32 AM
I don't see it. A visible part of a face had helped here. good b/w conversion and toning, too much softening for my taste
03/11/2009 10:16:51 AM
I would have leveled that car window sill but the editing here is nice and so is the story.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 06:14:02 AM
Great, great capture. :)

cool capture

Amazing textures. Great job.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 01:40:56 AM
interesting. At first I thought the title referred to the children being curious about whatever they are looking at. Then I realized it also applies to the viewer being curious about what the girls could be so curious about...

Nicely put together photo. Great tonality.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 12:20:20 AM
Amazing focus here but on the flip side, it's the softness that grabs me. Your textures are spot on IMO and love the tones you chose for this. Lastly, I like how you choose the back of their heads verses a frontal shot. Beautiful image. 9
