I was not shooting this for any entry. I was actually trying to get pictures of the bubbles. This shot had way too much white space above the power lines (which were not brushed in, btw) and I was going to delete it, but I liked the innocence of the whole scene. It is not cropped at the bottom at all. This is where it was shot. I think it's funny that everyone commented on the trees, which I was not allowed to edit out by contest rules, but nobody complained about the flagpole coming out of my daughter's head!!! My favorite part of this pic is the apparent blank spots in the power lines created by the bubble that blended in with the sky. Very cool effect.

I like your idea a lot. I think it is a little over-exposed. I would also like to have seen the composition altered so the tree isn't in the bottom right.

nice words, but the crop of the photo is a major problem. You have cropped too high and that effects the whole result. having her shoulders in this would have made this a much better submission for this, rather than looking unfinished as it currently does

Sooo what are those lines over there? I don't think we can paint, just type. There is a tree in the lower right corner that is really distracting. I like the font and the message but it lacks of a border
